Lovely!

Is the five blade prop a record for a RTF model? I can't see it being very efficient!

Noticed it this morning and it immediately made it to the top of my "have to have" list. After a slight issue with the HK site not progressing all the way through the check out process, one is now on it's way to Cornwall smiley

Could well be, TWS, but it wouldn't be the first foamy SF with one. I recall Matt Halton, who used to post here, made a 5-blade prop for his E-Flite Sea Fury a few years back. I can't find a build thread anywhere for it but there is a short thread with some pics and vids on RCG.

Here's one of the videos. Seemed to fly OK and looked rather good!:

The claim "... Hawker Sea Fury, the last propeller driven airplane to serve in the Royal Navy." is wrong of course. wink 2

I have just been on the Web-site and was offered the plane on a one off basis for £154---I resisted but would like one as my 84 year old brother worked at Hawkers on the Sea Fury.

Hi All ,
Spec : Wingspan: 1200mm
Length: 1100mm
Weight: 2100g ,
is another confirmation of the opinion that people from urban areas, with a shortage of space and small cars , buy these models.
I have two: Durafly Spit 24 and P-51, which are very similar to the aforementioned the Sea Fury.
