Airfield 1400mm F6F Hellcat


Here's the new Airfield F6F Hellcat available from Nitroplanes.com. Once again, Nitroplanes and UPS got the Hellcat to my home in 22 hours. The Nitroplanes Shipping is the Gold Standard in the industry. AWESOME!

Needless to say, the scale and detail of this new 1400mm Hellcat is stunning. I painted the control horns insignia blue, light blue and painted the prop hub silver. I'll be flying this bird on Sky Lipo 14.8v 40C 3300mAh batteries. Can't wait to get it in the wind!

Here's a few sunrise photos of my awesome daughter Evelyn holding this beautiful F6F Hellcat. We were having fun with her early morning giggles.

UPDATE-I put two flights on my Hellcat this morning (28 Sep 11). I used a 4S 3300mAh pack for both flight. The aircraft was a little tail heavy with those batteries. I added an ounce of weight and she flew great. A 4S 4000mAh pack would be perfect! This F6F looks so great in the air and the flaps are awesome. I was shooting approaches with full flaps right at sunrise with the wingtip lights showing up beautifully. The Hellcat looked and flew amazing. The retracts are working perfectly and I was flying off my dirt runway. She's a keeper!

All the best,
Tony

Good job on painting the control horns and caps. They always normally stand out like a sore thumb.

Kmot-Thanks for the feedback! I really enjoy added the little details that improve the scale appearance. I detailed the engine and it looks sooooo real now. Fun stuff!

Best,
Tony
