FMS 1400mm B25 Mitchell -Green PNP

  The North American B25 Mitchell was a twin-engine medium bomber that served in every theatre of WW2. The aircraft was safe and forgiving to fly and featured a formidable array of firepower. It was also used to strike the first ever bomber attack on mainland Japan that boosted moral of the American war machine after the devastation caused by the attack at Pearl Harbour.                                                                                                                                                                                                FMS has chosen the B25-D which featured upgraded supercharge radial engines and increased armament and first flew in January 1942. This is a highly detailed and feature rich model which includes: 5 painted pilots, 11 machine guns, high power LED Navigational lights, worm drive retracts with gear door sequence controller.                                                                                                                                                     Taxiing and ground handling is great using the steerable nose wheel and makes for stress free take offs. Once in the air, all control surfaces are very effective and coupled to the light wing loading and excellent power make this a winning package.                                                                                                                                                                           Confidence inspiring flight predictability will enable any budding twin enthusiastic pilot to really push the flight envelope and wring this aircraft out. At the same time it’s a walk in the park to bring it back down for a beautiful scale landing, all this without the use of flaps!

F4U-1D Corsair 60cc ARF 85.5″

Designed to operate from aircraft carriers and/or land-based facilities, the F4U-1D Corsair was a force to be reckoned with to the Japanese during WWII. With its gull wing design, impressive looks and power, the Corsair was one of the most recognizable WWII aircraft.                                                                                                            The Hangar 9® F4U-1D Corsair is a giant-scale masterpiece for 60cc power plants that delivers scale details worthy of being called competition grade. Its scale outline, impressive scale appearance, and Hangar 9 performance, make this an exciting warbird to show off at the field. The construction is primarily wood with fully balsa-sheeted areas, but the outer wing panels and control surfaces (except the three-panel flaps) feature exposed ribs like was done with the full-scale fighter.                                                                                                                                            The three-piece wing features a robust fiberglass structure in the center which houses the custom main retracts built by Robart Mfg. (sold separately). A retractable tail wheel option is available from Hangar 9 as well as aluminum spoke wheels that set off this amazing model in an inspirational way.                                                                                                                                                                       Out of the box, it comes finished in genuine UltraCote® covering, fiberglass cowling and wing center section that are painted to match. You also get scale details like a full depth cockpit, hidden tail and flap control linkages, scale rib detail, scale 3-panel flaps, dummy radial engine, sliding canopy and so much more. Optional scale accessories include scale tail wheel, main wheels and retracts that operate with pneumatic or electric mechanisms, droppable bombs or fuel tanks, scale 3-blade display prop and optional navigation lights.                                                                                                                                                                                                A wide range of choices are available for power; there’s the ease and economy of a 50–60cc two-stroke gas engine, sound and torque of a twin-cylinder 57cc four-stroke, or the realism of an Evolution 777 four-stroke radial. The hardware package included is very high-quality and complete as possible no matter power system you favor so you can get to flying this magnificent warbird quickly.                                                                                                                                                   Few World War II fighters inspired awe in both friend and foe like the F4U-1A Corsair. This impressive scale giant offers top gun scale looks, while delivering the Hangar 9 design reputation for superior flying performance.

Key Features

F-16C Grey Super Scale 90mm with 12 Blade EDF Ducted Fan Jet RC Airplane PNP

Mission:
The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a compact, multi-role fighter aircraft. It is highly maneuverable and has proven itself in air-to-air combat and air-to-surface attack. It provides a relatively low-cost, high-performance weapon system for the United States and allied nations.                                                                             Features:
In an air combat role, the F-16’s maneuverability and combat radius (distance it can fly to enter air combat, stay, fight and return) exceed that of all potential threat fighter aircraft. It can locate targets in all weather conditions and detect low flying aircraft in radar ground clutter. In an air-to-surface role, the F-16 can fly more than 500 miles (860 kilometers), deliver its weapons with superior accuracy, defend itself against enemy aircraft, and return to its starting point. An all-weather capability allows it to accurately deliver ordnance during non-visual bombing conditions.

In designing the F-16, advanced aerospace science and proven reliable systems from other aircraft such as the F-15 and F-111 were selected. These were combined to simplify the airplane and reduce its size, purchase price, maintenance costs and weight. The light weight of the fuselage is achieved without reducing its strength. With a full load of internal fuel, the F-16 can withstand up to nine G’s — nine times the force of gravity — which exceeds the capability of other current fighter aircraft.                                                                The cockpit and its bubble canopy give the pilot unobstructed forward and upward vision, and greatly improved vision over the side and to the rear. The seat-back angle was expanded from the usual 13 degrees to 30 degrees, increasing pilot comfort and gravity force tolerance. The pilot has excellent flight control of the F-16 through its “fly-by-wire” system. Electrical wires relay commands, replacing the usual cables and linkage controls. For easy and accurate control of the aircraft during high G-force combat maneuvers, a side stick controller is used instead of the conventional center-mounted stick. Hand pressure on the side stick controller sends electrical signals to actuators of flight control surfaces such as ailerons and rudder.

Avionics systems include a highly accurate enhanced global positioning and inertial navigation systems, or EGI, in which computers provide steering information to the pilot. The plane has UHF and VHF radios plus an instrument landing system. It also has a warning system and modular countermeasure pods to be used against airborne or surface electronic threats. The fuselage has space for additional avionics systems.                             Background:
The F-16A, a single-seat model, first flew in December 1976. The first operational F-16A was delivered in January 1979 to the 388th Tactical Fighter Wing at Hill Air Force Base, Utah.

The F-16B, a two-seat model, has tandem cockpits that are about the same size as the one in the A model. Its bubble canopy extends to cover the second cockpit. To make room for the second cockpit, the forward fuselage fuel tank and avionics growth space were reduced. During training, the forward cockpit is used by a student pilot with an instructor pilot in the rear cockpit.

All F-16s delivered since November 1981 have built-in structural and wiring provisions and systems architecture that permit expansion of the multirole flexibility to perform precision strike, night attack and beyond-visual-range interception missions. This improvement program led to the F-16C and F-16D aircraft, which are the single- and two-place counterparts to the F-16A/B, and incorporate the latest cockpit control and display technology. All active units and many Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve units have converted to the F-16C/D.                                                                                                         The F-16 was built under an unusual agreement creating a consortium between the United States and four NATO countries: Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands and Norway. These countries jointly produced with the United States an initial 348 F-16s for their air forces. Final airframe assembly lines were located in Belgium and the Netherlands. The consortium’s F-16s are assembled from components manufactured in all five countries. Belgium also provides final assembly of the F100 engine used in the European F-16s. Recently, Portugal joined the consortium. The long-term benefits of this program will be technology transfer among the nations producing the F-16, and a common-use aircraft for NATO nations. This program increases the supply and availability of repair parts in Europe and improves the F-16’s combat readiness.

U.S. Air Force F-16 multirole fighters were deployed to the Persian Gulf in 1991 in support of Operation Desert Storm, where more sorties were flown than with any other aircraft. These fighters were used to attack airfields, military production facilities, Scud missiles sites and a variety of other targets.

During Operation Allied Force, U.S. Air Force F-16 multirole fighters flew a variety of missions to include suppression of enemy air defense, offensive counter air, defensive counter air, close air support and forward air controller missions. Mission results were outstanding as these fighters destroyed radar sites, vehicles, tanks, MiGs and buildings.

Since Sept. 11, 2001, the F-16 has been a major component of the combat forces committed to the war on terrorism flying thousands of sorties in support of operations Noble Eagle (Homeland Defense), Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and Iraqi Freedom.                                                                                                                                          General characteristics

Waco YMF-5D Radio Controlled Glow or Gasoline Powered .91-1.20 Scale ARF Biplane

The number of sleek, fast aircraft boomed during the Golden Age of Aviation, but none could compare with the Waco. Today, the Waco YMF-5D offers the same timeless good looks and the benefits of modern technology. Great Planes’ replica recreates its smooth, flowing lines and classic style in sport-scale detail, painted fiberglass and rich MonoKote® film.                              The Waco offered more than good looks. It was used as a 3-seat trainer as well as a mail carrier. Parts to create both versions are included and simple to install.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Engine options are wide open. The O.S® FS-120S-E offers the best in 4-stroke power and scale sound. The low-cost DLE-30 provides true gas economy and the ease of electronic ignition.                                                                  Installing the replica radial takes a few minutes, but the cowl blister detail is factory-applied and ready for admiration. What’s more, there are no screw holes to distract from the cowl’s good looks. A hidden ring secures it “invisibly!”                                                                                                                                    The main gear is a scale version of the ’34 original. Other painted fiberglass parts include wheel pants, struts and cabanes and fairings to ensure smooth transitions from the fuselage to the wings and landing gear.                                   Tubes ensure that the horizontal stabilizer is perfectly aligned, as well as faster and simpler to install.                                                                                                                                                                                            A slow flyby is just right for showing off the Waco’s impressive size, stable handling and outstanding looks. Each aileron has a dedicated servo, ensuring swift, dependable response, shorter linkages and easier installation and adjustment.                                                                                                  The Waco’s smooth lines and signature trim scheme were instantly recognizable even at the smallest country airfields. A scratchbuilt or kit-built Waco could take months to complete, but you can have this sport-scale ARF assembled and in the air in just a few days.

Top Flite P-40 Warhawk

Made famous by Colonel Claire Chennault’s “Flying Tigers” squadron at the onset of World War II, the P-40 Warhawk had one of the most impressive kill-to-loss ratios of any Allied fighter plane. Equally impressive is Top Flite’s IMAA-legal replica of the P-40, which utilizes Gold Edition engineering to capture the exciting details of this revered warbird in a great-flying ARF!                                                                                                                          

  • Built-up balsa and ply airframe with fiberglass cowl, belly pan and landing gear pods.
  • Exceptional scale flight characteristics using affordable and easy-to-maintain 43-55 cc gasoline engines.
  • Many scale touches that you won’t find on any other giant-scale P-40 ARF!

                                                                                                                         Top Flite’s Giant Scale P-40 Warhawk is modeled after a restored full-size P40E owned and flown by Rudy Frasca of Frasca International in Urbana, Illinois.                                                                                                                               The cockpit detail and instrumentation is just as you would find in a full-size P-40 Warhawk is included in this model.                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Stab halves assemble with self-aligning aluminum mounting tubes, and all control surfaces except the rudder are pre-hinged to speed up final assembly.                                                                                                                                           The fiberglass cowl captures the lines of the P-40 perfectly. The iconic “shark mouth” nose art is painted on, and the exhaust ports are already in place. A scale-shaped, painted aluminum spinner is included.                                                                                                                                                                                                       Heavy-duty fixed landing gear is included with this model. For the ultimate in authenticity, optional Robart® retract gear can also be installed. The gear bolts easily into place following the instructions provided in the model’s assembly manual.                                                                                                             The wings are reinforced to help the landing gear withstand the impact of a less-than-perfect touchdown.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Close attention to detail is evident in the split flaps, which are ribbed just like on the full-size P-40.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              The Flying Tigers was the most popular P-40 trim scheme, and it has been faithfully reproduced on this ARF using flat finish MonoKote®covering on the built-up balsa and ply sections and paint on the fiberglass parts.
