What WW2 fighter would you like to fly?


Due to local intrest and urgings of my fellow fliers I plan to
offer for sale a series of arf fighters constructed of blue foam.

Please note this is not an advertisement and any email enquiries
will be ignored. When these models are ready for sale an appropriate add will be placed on the E-Zone.

What I want to know is: What fighter would you pilots want in your stable?

These will be speed 400 style direct drive models, for 8 cells,
spans in the 3' range. Weight of one pound +-. I would like to
instigate an electric version of the 1/12 combat. The scale may
be more like 1/14 or 1/16.

And please consider that there are a few aircraft that I will exclude from my agenda, specificly (for now) the P-51 and
the Zero. There are plenty of nice models of these planes.

I will attach a photo of my test bed model. For comparison I
flew a dogfight with a GWS Zero. The Zero was modified to run
with a s400 direct drive; My fake russian fighter was faster but
could not turn as tightly as the Zero.

Motors beat engines!
p-40 and corsair would be high on my list, along with the p-47 and lightning if you care to try a twin.

The Russian bipe would need a radial battery pack arranged around the motor to balance!

The P-40 and P-47 are possibleities

The p-38 exists in a speed 400 model sold by hobby lobby

A FockeWulf-190D, that would be cool. And maybe the Kawanishi (or was it Kawasaki?) Ki-61 Hien.

P-40 Warhawk and P-47 Thunderbolt!!!! Along with the Corsair,
these are my favorites. I also like the Fockewulfs and the Messerschmidts.

How about a stuka? Its not realy a fighter but it would be cool to see. One thing going for it is you don't need retracts for it to look scale flying

A better question would be...

Also an easy anwer for this one.... NO!

I would have said P-51, but that is a real life thing I would love to do. But for your question, Corsair
