nose art on the cowling and the inclusion of a three-blade (scale) and
two-bladed propellers (the
two-blader propeller giving
more thrust).

Powered by
a powerful 480 size brushless outrunner motor,
the model has “very spirited
warbird performance, rolls
loops and high speed beatups
can be performed with
ease and with the 11.1volt
1800Mah Li-Po battery provides flight
duration of over 10 minutes”.

The model comes with fixed
landing gear with a steerable
tail-wheel for positive ground
handling. The landing gear
can be easily removed

skids are included so the
