A nice looking British warbird has just come out of E-flite's hangar
 
 
It's about time E-Flite started making warbirds again, I really hope they re-release the Sea Fury.

David, I don't suppose you have any influence with the importers? can you find out when they are likely to be available in the UK. The site says late March in the US.
 
If you need somebody to write a review etc, me, me, me, me, me, me, me!!!
 
Cheers
Danny

It is nice! Pricey though! I would normally expect retracts included not just ready for the money.
 
However I would think Danny would sell his soul for this one!

Looks nice, I make it about 1/7 scale. I make the Parkzone Bf109 about 1/8 scale, if I've got my sums right, so they should look good together in the air.

Hi Gary almost exactly 9th scale. I agree it would be nice if the retracts were included but it does include servos, esc and motor
 
Cheers

That's the PNP version guys so all the bits aren't included, the BNF version is more expensive at $350 and at a straight currency exchange that's £218 but once it gets into rip off UK model shops I'm sure we'll be looking at £250!

must admit, these lecky things are getting more apealing, that hurris the best i have seen, many are spoilt by over egging the detail, rivets, panels lines you could drive a car down, but this looks ok, its nice to see a manufacturer doing homework on basic shape,
 
James40, i know that it looks strange, the £v$ price differances, but Florida alone accounts for the whole turnover in britain, then there are 50odd more states to go, their buying power is enormous, buy 1 tin of beans from heinz, pay a tenner, buy a million cans???? we also have here the little thing called import tax and VAT, with the rise, this is now about 34% on the mark up price, in some states, there is a tax, but its only 2-5% i would LOVE to see the same prices, but its pie in the sky,

This was made for ME there can be no doubt.
I get back into flying and then E-Flite make a Hawker Hurricane RTF just for me.
Perfect timing.
My favourite aeroplane bar none, you'd never have guessed.
 
Closely followed by the DH Mosquito.
It's okay E-Flite you can take your time getting the Mosquito just right ... but I WILL be wanting one.

Count me in! been looking for a scale looking Hurricane for ages. The only one i could find before was the flying styro kit. That was a tad too small. This is perfect. Hmmm now where to get the money from ......

New one to me too. Wow, I love it!
 
So someone has been paying attention to the wish-lists expressed on forums like this for ages!

It looks gorgeous, and I'm delighted to see that E-Flite have gone for a power train using 3S LiPos - surely the most popular configuration in electric flight. I've been put off the E-Scale and FMS offerings with stupidly low kv motors and big ESCs which are unnecessary for the span and weight of the models.I've got loads of 3S packs and don't want the added expense of going up to 4S.

For all the guys interested in buying this Hurricane, do we ever run group buys on this forum? I moderate on a car forum and it's something we do quite often, the savings can be quite healthy, and lets face it, anything that saves money is a bonus these days.
 
All interested register on a thread and then stores are approached to see if they will offer discount for a bulk order on a particular model. They get a good order in so can offer a better price.
 
Worth thinking about before they land in the UK ?
