H-King Hawker Tempest 800mm (31.5") PNF


This H-King version of the thoroughbred Hawker Tempest warbird is manufactured in a superbly finished EPO foam and an authentic World War ll D-Day invasion stripe color scheme plus all the decals are factory applied. The Hawker Tempest comes with motor, ESC and servos pre-installed and also a built in 6 axis ORX flight stabilization system to make it even easier to fly. The stabilization uses a 32bit MCU and a 6 axis digital gyro for ultra fast control response, it can also be switched from beginners mode to expert mode.

The H-King Hawker Tempest is based on a Mk V clipped wing version that came into service in 1944. The Tempest is a later version of the Typhoon which was found to lack performance at altitude. They fitted a new thinner laminar flow wing which gave it a marked improvement over the Typhoon even with the same Napier Sabre engine. The Tempest was at the forefront of the battle against the V1 flying bombs flying at low level. The Tempest emerged as one of the most powerful fighters of World War II and was the fastest single-engine propeller-driven aircraft of the war at low altitude. The markings of the H-King Tempest JN751 RB depicts the aircraft that was flown by Wg Cdr R.P.Beaumont OC of 150 Wing based at Newchurch in England in 1944. In this particular aircraft Beaumont scored most of his 31 V1 claims including the very first air-to-air claim on 8th June 1944.

There is little to build with the H-King Hawker Tempest, it comes 97% pre-built and as mentioned before it has the motor, ESC, servos and the ORX pre-installed. All you need to do is fit the main wing, tail assembly and plug in the main landing gear. To complete the model you require your own transmitter, receiver and flight battery, after that everything else is included.

It has the power to do all the maneuvers required for a World War II fighter and looks fantastic in the air. The stabilization system makes it very smooth and easy to fly and because of it's size it is perfect for local parks, large indoor areas or the local flying patch.

Once again a re-release of a former TopRC plane - well done HK! These planes look really good and fly as well. I fitted retracts in mine, a bit on the heavy side now but still a good flier. And it handles wind much better than stock

Excellent choice for a re-pop. By all accounts a good plane.
