Scale rotating retracts would get me all over this buggy.

I'm doubtful they will be rotating, it would be a little complex and incease mfg. costs-but-I'd love to see rotating gears in models this size for sure

Is that the UF P-40 used as a basis for this offering?

It looks promising. Just the right size, with retracts. I might just have to order one of these.

...and very competively priced with the new Parkzone Corsair.

Was hoping Parkzone would offer a ARF P-40, but sounds like this one will do just fine.

No details on motor... it looks like there isn't easy access either.

Anyone else think those ailerons look skimpy?

I suspect no chance of rotating retracts though. That would be way out of character with the rest of the Phase-3 planes.

Looks awesome though.

If they are indeed twist and turn then it may well be a nice addition to the UF P40, though the P3 P40 is a little bigger.....

Is it just me, or does the landing gear bulge on the leading edge of the wing look to far inward? If they did use rotating retracts, landings may be a little hairy due to the narrow landing gear track.

Looks that way to me too. Let's hope it's not like that in the foam...

Good eye, barmonkey. You're completely right on that.


I'm still really excited about this plane despite the few concerns. The other P3 planes I have are excellent flyers. The EDF-16 is my favorite plane in my fleet.

unless this 3 view is off, ailerons and gear location look ok...

Point taken gunracer. Maybe it's an illusion from the photo angle...

My Ultrafly P-40's are definately spaced further out.
