No idea who makes it. But i like the bigger size of it. Keep us posted. Would be nice if somebody could come out with a D model or a ta152 version.

The kit's quality is typical Starmax... They learned a lot compared to the "early" 1600mm P51 I got!

I'm not really keen about the Focke's color scheme (the green seems to be "too green" for my liking), but that's something I might change later.

The retract trunions are made of metal - they look sturdy, so there's hope that they hold up nicely. Motor is the well known 4258 (400 kv) that is installed in their Mustang, Skyraider and Thunderbolt. ESC is 80 A.

Oh, and they incorporated a sliding canopy... Good for those hot days when the dark cockpit interior foam starts gatoring under the canopy.

The "Black 13" is modeled after Josef "Pips" Priller's ride, by the way: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josef_Priller

Well, so much for now... I'll upload a couple of piccies...

Best regards - Paco

Nice! Cool to see a Butcher Bird in this size. Now if someone would make a really good one in 11-1200mm.

Only store I have seen this bird is this.
Am looking forward to hear more reports on this. BTW, Topfire brand for an ESC does sound assuring.

I can't pin point exactly whats off, but it just doesn't look right. Also the wheels are tiny.

I see the same but it can be easily fixed.
The wheels are too small , williams brothers or eflight wheels from its FW or Duel wing eflight line would work
2)The gun hood looks more like a Dora , the FW190 ( in most cases was more beefy /protruding )
Now , for the guys that get ancey of the fact that we are picking on an ARF , I am not , I am simply saying what I would change if I own it .
3)Gear doors are definitly functional at the bottom but way off and easily moded
