Interesting. I just looked at pictures of the Typhoon and it also has 4 cannons sticking out of the wing.

You misunderstood my comment, the Tempest has the canons in the wing.

I believe your mistaken. The Tempest had a thinner wing.

The Typhoon Had the Cannons.

Tough to tell from the pictures provided but so far looks nice.
With regard the 3-4 bladed prop, while some typhoons had 3 and other 4 bladed props, I can not ever recollect seeing a tempest with 3 blades. So it does seem a little strange seeing a tempest with the 3 bladed. But small point I guess. I will definately be watching this one with interest.
Cheers Mike

Might have to put the Critical mass prop on there to make it right.
I wonder if the Spinner is the right diameter?

The model is 1.2M or 1200mm. (approx)
I think the 1200 mm Hellcat is a touch bigger.

The first 100 Tempest Vs used long-barrelled 20 mm (.79 in) Hispano Mk.IIs the barrels of which projected ahead of the wing leading edges and were covered by short fairings, while later production Tempest Vs switched to the short-barrelled Hispano Mk.Vs the muzzles of which were flush with the leading edges.

I see it now I didn't read that far down.
But most pics of the Tempest don't have protruding cannons.

Dynam put a three blade on there P-51D too. So it probably has more to do with convenience for them.

I emailed Motion RC to see if they were gonna carry Dynam airplanes and the Tempest. Here is the response.
I think I will be spending some money here!

Hi Walter,

Currently, we have no relationship with Dynam however it is a relationship we are interested in pursuing in the future. We have met with and formed relationships with the majority of the manufacturers in this industry. You don’t see many of those manufacturers planes on our site yet because we considered their product quality sub-par or we required modifications and better product quality. Dynam does not fall into this class. We have not met with them, formed any relationship with them, or tested any of their products. I will say it is not for lack of trying on our part.

We test every plane before we decide to sell it. We have recently tested some really good planes from a relatively unknown manufacturer and we will be adding some of their planes to our site soon in addition to the FMS planes. We should have about 50 new planes on our site by mid May with more coming. We plan to add 10 new planes to the RocHobby line in 2013 as well. In addition to all of this we will be adding a few lines of servos, motors, ESC, radios, and general “gadgets” like cameras.

Thanks for the inquiry. Please feel free to send us any other questions.
