Tøff Warbird fra STM laget i EPO med retract, modellen har ett vingespenn på 113cm og leveres med elektronikken ferdig montert. Kun enkel montering av høyderor, propell og lignende kreves for å kunne fly. Flyet leveres med 3S 1800mah LiPo med Deans og 12V lader, 2.4GHz radioutstyr er også med for å gi god rekkevidde og forstyrrelsesfri flyving.
Modellen flyr veldig bra og med retract får man en ekstra dimensjon i flyvingen. Det eneste som trengs i tillegg her er 8AA batterier til radioen. Merk at laderen går på 12V, så om man ønsker ett 220V adapter kan man kjøpe det i tillegg ( E-000512 ). Kjøper man reservebatteri 1600mAh 3S Haiyin med XT60-plugg trenger man også overgang til deans.
The Fw-190A was a serious shock to the RAF when it came on the scene in 1942. Until the Spitfire MkIX arrived it completely outclassed the Spitfire MkV. No wonder it was nicknamed the ´Butcher Bird´! The Fw-190 swiftly became the mount of choice for many German fighter aces and remained in production in various guises for the rest of the war.
ST have re-created a fabulous scale version of the Fw-190A and lavished the level of detail on it that has not been seen on a foam model before.
There is a fully scale retracting undercarriage as standard with contoured doors that has working, sprung oleo struts. The split flaps have concealed linkages inside the wings and are amazingly effective. Slow, controlled landings on calm days are no problem at all. The control surface hinges are fully hidden and the horns/pushrods have been minimsed so as not to spoil the scale appearance.
The powerfull brushless, outrunner motor drives a scale, 3-bladed propeller through a scale spinner with integral fan. Just like the real one!!! The fan also provides the necessary cooling air flow to the motor, battery and ESC and that air exits via the scale exhaust recesses. Power control comes from the latest 36A ESC with integral BEC circuit. That BEC is more than enough for the five pre-installed, 9g servos.
The cockpit has a seat, control column and instrument panel and just needs a pilot to complete.
The stunning colour scheme and decals are the icing on the cake, giving this Fw-190 the ´wow´ factor that she richly deserves.
Out on the field you quickly discover that the performance matches the looks. The controls are smooth, powerful and give the right level of feedback. The motor will power her through all the scale manoeuvres and many more. Big, wide loops and slow rolls are the order of the day!
Drop the flaps for landing and she settles into a controllled approach in just the right atttitude.
The Fw-190 from ST Model makes an ideal first warbird to fly (if you can stop yourself admiring it on the ground!)
