The FMS F7F Tigercat made its debut not long ago, and is getting great feedback from pilots. Let's take a quick look at this unique but well recognizable twin warbird.

The FMS F7F Tigercat PNP

A 1.7M Rendition of a Gorgeous Twin Warbird

It's no secret that the FMS Tigercat has arrived and is getting great feedback in the RCGroups forums. But I wanted to take a moment and create a formal news article to highlight some of the awesome features this beautiful twin has to offer. As my favorite warbird of all time, the F7F Tigercat is definitely on my short list of aircraft to own! Let's take a look.

The FMS F7F Tigercat boasts a laundry list of scale details, from the very accurate shape and panel lines, to the scale landing gear with green-painted "Zinc Chromate" wheel wells. It has a 1.7m wingspan (66.9") and an all up flying weight around 5200g (11.4lb). Included with the FMS F7F are a pair of 4250-440kv motors spinning counter-rotating 3 blade 14x8 propellers. 60A esc's with separate BEC's are also included, getting power from a separately available 6s 5000mAh LiPo. Four optional decal kits are included.
