When the P-47 Thunderbolt first arrived in the European theater of World War II, its rotund fuselage quickly earned it the nickname “The Jug”. It wasn’t long, though, before this became short for “Juggernaut”. Built like a 400-mph flying tank, it packed the wallop of eight .50 caliber machine guns and carried enough bombs and rockets to wipe a ground target clean off the map.

This gorgeous 1.2m replica of the razorback P-47D perfectly captures the power and presence of this one-of-a-kind warbird. And because it comes equipped with an AS3X® receiver that features optional SAFE® Select technology, pilots of almost any skill level will find it’s as much fun to fly as it is to look at.

Functional Flaps and Retractable Landing Gear
Along with its many other scale details, the model comes out of the box with functional flaps and electric retracts that are already installed for you. Details on the landing gear struts and wheels add to the realism.

An Incredible Level of Detail
You will have a tough time finding another RC replica of this iconic warbird that looks as good as this one. The expertly applied trim scheme is that of a P-47 that flew with the 510th Sq., 405th Fighter Group during World War II. It is complemented by molded panel lines and machine gun details as well as engine details in the nose.

You also get an assortment of payloads you can attach to mounting stations under the wings and fuselage. These include 2 bombs, 2 rocket pods and a centerline drop tank. All snap into place and can be attached or removed in seconds, no tools or glue required.

Powerful 15-Size BL Motor with a 4-Blade Prop and 40A ESC
This high-output motor system delivers thrilling speed and climb performance when matched with a 2200mAh 3S 11.1V 30C LiPo battery (EFLB22003S30 recommended - sold separately). The efficient 4-blade prop also serves as one of the model’s realistic scale details.

AS3X® Receiver with Optional SAFE® Select Technology
The model’s AS3X (Artificial Stabilization – 3-aXis) receiver works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence so you enjoy a sense of stability and precision that makes you feel like you’re flying a larger, expertly tuned aircraft.

If you’re new to flying scale aircraft or want an extra margin of safety while familiarizing yourself with the airplane, you have the option of enabling SAFE Select features like self-leveling and angle limits. No programming is required. All you do is change up the binding sequence as directed in the manual.

If you don’t want to enable the SAFE Select features, just bind the receiver normally and it will function like a standard AS3X receiver. You can even fine-tune its AS3X settings if you have the Spektrum programming interface and a compatible programming cable (both available separately).

With SAFE Select features enabled, you get:

Pitch and Bank Angle Limits
These keep the aircraft from rolling or pitching upside down. They also prevent excessive climb or dive angles during takeoff and landing.

Automatic Self-Leveling
Instantly returns the wings to level when the sticks are released.

Easy Switch Assignment – No Programming Required
The simple procedure for assigning a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select features on and off doesn't require any programming and takes just a few seconds.

And there is the Razorback I remember people asking a nice convenient size too. This will be a late fall/midwinter purchase for me...after my other stuff has been gathered/acquired.

Man are there ever going to be some pissed off people!!! But I like it. I'll wait till I see a price on the 1500 FMS Razorback, but if the $400+ is accurate, I'll likely get this instead.

Only bummer about the new FMS/E-flites are the replacement airframe prices. Absolutely insulting to charge $72?for the fuselage of the Green P-47 compared to the still available silver ones $36.

3.4 - 3.5 lbs. on 400 sq-inches of wing is okay but, the only thing that prevents me from getting this model is the FOAM molded Cowling.

Very nice looking plane. But given that the 1.2m Corsair costs €300 in Europe, I won't be getting one.

Love the razor-back with blue trim and invasion stripes. About as good looking as a P-47 can get IMO.. (I love me some Jugs...)

I'd personally rather have lights and a bomb-drop than SAFE... Oh well.

And so does every other manufacture out the. 51's. 47's and Corsairs. In my opinion, its a very plain jane looking Jug. Wish they would think outside the box and do something new!

Is it raining in here?
Oh, never mind. I think it's tears falling. My mistake.
I think it looks great. Cool scheme. Nice job!

Looks really nice and I think 1.2m is the perfect size for a foamie. I just think they should be making these setup for a 4-cell like the Flightline models. The Eflite 1.2m warbirds on 3-cell fly great but could use a little more juice.

Razorback & Ordinance sets this plane apart.

flnrun, you are welcome to your opinion, but I wonder what you think is non-plain-looking Something purple & garish I bet. I guess you're not one for adding your own paint or details? IMO, the 510th Sq, 405th Fighter Group trim scheme looks great and why not celebrate it's proud history, right down to the patriotic white stars on the inboard wheel rims.

I applaud E-Fite for not going with just another silver P-47N. There are plenty of those from FMS, Dynam and E-Flite clearly needed an update from the old Parkzone & E-Flite version. The Razorback D model & full ordinance of the center drop tank, and the olive drab painted bombs and rocket tubes (vs. the usual just silver fuel tanks) really set this plane apart.

My only complaint about the PZ/Eflite P-47s was that they were not razorbacks. Complaint resolved. This should be an excellent seller. Unfortunately I don't have room for multiple models of the same plane, and since I already have the fabulous PZ P-47, I won't be buying this one; but I'm sure plenty of others will.

Another great job HH.

Uh ... What would you have preferred they make the cowl out of?! Cheese?

And if they'd used plastic, then you'd probably whine that the color of the paint used on it doesn't quite match. Nice try at finding something to complain about on a spiffy looking model that IMO is pretty darn bangin'!

Looks like a great package, and nice that they showed taking off and landing on grass as well as pavement in the promo video. I hope they do well with it...

This looks great, certainly a step up from the old PZ version. The airframe and ordinance looks especially nice! However, is does have the typical HH issues. The prop is tiny, and the foam finish is not up there with other companies like Flightline or Durafly. The foam on the 1.2 Corsair looked pretty good though, so maybe it's the paint messing with me or an early production sample. Other thing is on course the lack of inner gear doors and a tail retract. This could all be reasonably fixed if they offered an airframe kit like they used to. Otherwise, I'll end up tossing half the stock electronics to get it to the detail level I want. I'll probably wait for the price of the FMS to come out before I start thinking about which one I'll get.
