This new 1400mm P40 has absolutely nothing in common with the old version and shares the livery of the FMS 980mm P-40B Warhawk. This new model shares the same ESC found in the other FMS 1400mm warbirds but this P-40B has a more optimized motor and prop. Additionally, a brand new twist and turn retract was developed specifically for this plane along with the inclusion of 17g metal gear servos throughout the plane for maximum durability. The stable flying performance will rival any other warbird and the new high-magnification foam greatly reduces the flying weight. The scale appearance allows it to be a great static model as well as an excellent flyer.

This is a fantastic looking and flying warbird. The retracts are, as I had hoped, a thing of beauty and have attracted a lot of admiration at the club: very satisfying. Landing with the flaps is simply beautiful. My one crash was due to turning at far too slow an airspeed: dumb. By the way, the fuselage, which snapped in half from the crash (very alarming) glued back together virtually invisibly. However, this is my first scale warbird and learning to take-off is a nightmare. Generally, I'm becoming not a bad pilot... but the coordination required for good take-offs with an aeroplane like this is on a whole different level in my opinion. My only complete failure on my last flight broke a prop blade and loosened the motor mount: all fixed now. The procedure seems to be: with full up-elevator advance the throttle to 50%; start to finesse the elevator back towards centre whilst simultaneously gradually adding throttle and letting the ground speed increase. When she does lift keep her low and level. ... But what do I know...?
