Enter To Win the FMS 1700mm F7F Tigercat!

To kick off the new year and FMS as the new electric warbirds sponsor we thought a contest might be fun. Leo at FMS thought that the F7F (retailing at $549.99) Tigercat would be the one to give away!

How to Enter

Here is the concept:

  • Go to the FMS site.
  • Find your favorite plane on the site.
  • Reply to the thread with a link to the plane.
  • Also include an image (you can save the image and then attach it to your post).
  • You can enter as many planes as you like.

That's it!!

Contest Selection and Time Frame

  • The winner will be picked at random.
  • The contest will end on Jan. 31st.

Info on the FMS 1700mm F7F Tigercat

The FMS 1700mm Tigercat pools the best structural features from FMS’ classic works. It adopts the popular quick and easy assembly and disassembly structure. Screws can do all assembly and disassembly work. In addition, with the latest multi-connect technology, FMS has streamlined the wing system, eliminating the wiring problems, and making it easier to install and dismantle in a short time. The well-designed battery compartment makes full use of airframe space, allowing for higher-storage batteries and more flying choices.

The Tigercat features the latest locked-rotor mode E-retract system with overcurrent protection, the refined scaled CNC-processed metal landing gear set (Certainly the most notable feature is that this is the most accurately scaled landing gear set we have ever created) for resisting those not-too-perfect landings, a 62mm diameter front wheel and 84mm diameter rear wheels for taking off and landing on both paved and grass surfaces. The power system utilizes twin 4250-KV440 outrunner motors, twin 60A ESC (with 10A UBEC), providing surging power for scaled aerial combat maneuvers when coupled with a 6S 5000mAh 45C battery.

The Tigercat has the most scaled appearance, with scaled plastic parts throughout the body, e.g. landing gear door, cowl, artificial engine, and machine guns... Couple that with the detailed all-around rivets, panel lines, pilot figure, high bright LED lamps, a CNC-processed shock-absorbed metal landing gear set, the Tiger Cat is reproduced flawlessly. 4 set decals in the package (blue color scheme only) allow you to make your own Tiger Cat and stand out in your airfield

And because you said I can post more than one, then I'm going add the awesome Tigercat mentioned above again. I flew a large ASM one many years ago and would love to have one of my own. I'ld love the oportunity to get my airbrush out and weather it up.

What's not to like? The Tigecat itself of course.
Definitely the best looking of the bunch (IMHO]
