The Focke-Wulf FW190 was a German Second World War single-seat, single-engine fighter aircraft designed in the late 1930s. Powered by a radial engine, the 190 had ample power and was able to lift larger loads than its well-known counterpart, the Messerschmitt BF 109. The 190 was used by the Luftwaffe in a wide variety of roles, including day fighter, fighter-bomber, ground-attack aircraft and, to a lesser degree, night fighter.
This EPO FW190 is an impressive model both in terms of looks and scale detail. With its 3 bladed prop, drop tank and pre-applied waterslide decals, this model really looks the part! Being Plug and fly, there is little to do in terms of building with the powerful motor, ESC & servos pre-fitted. This model features simple to install fixed landing gear yet is retract-ready if you choose to add your own retractable gear. Just add your own radio, receiver, 4S 2200mah lipo and your ready to fly!
Flight performance from this Second World War fighter is excellent. It has a wide flight envelope, capable of realistic scale aerobatics yet also manageable for the less experienced pilot. Due to its larger size, it will also tolerate a little wind making it a very practical model to own. The 1400mm FW190 is a must for the collection of any scale or warbird enthusiast!
Just order this plane and would like to install retracts, bigger wheels and also a scale spinner but can't find anything on HK's website here.
Where can I get at least suitable retracts & struts for the FW 190? Thanks.
Hi Crawdad...I got mine about a week ago. It doesn't come with flaps or retracts. At least not on mine. Another thing is that parts are really hard to find but I managed to find a couple of websites that do have a few. I also got a scale spinner and prop since this bird doesn't come with those, either. Other than that, it's a great plane.
OK people I have a question with a concern. How many of you out there have had shipping delays and slow processing of your order? I have read discussions from other people and alot of you/us/and maybe me aren't satisfied. Since I NOW have an order in for the FW-190 with HK I want to know what to expect
liteflyer50 I concur with rcqreq. I have had no problem with the shipping. I have ad a few problem with the contents. Bits missing but HK have always either replace or part refunded so I can buy. There price is great and post cost is the best I have found. I hope this helps.
i hear a lot of people talk abpout how slow hk is but here is my story , ordered the other 190 from us warehouse 11-3 received 11-8 i live in co. so not to far from warehouse from china 10 days last order comet 88 i think hk is doing a great job.
I was looking in the replacement part link and I noticed that there isn't any parts listed for the FW190. Being a new RC flyer I fully expect to be needing them as I train. Where can I get replacement parts? And once again what is a Dubro spinner and where can I get one? Also, could someone please suggest what type of larger wheels I should get because I will be flying from a grass field. THK's
I have a dk-4 trans ($pektrum). I'm sure it will fly the 190 in it's as condition. Two questions 1. would I have to up grade the trans if I buy and use the $pektrum r610 dsm2 6ch receiver? Or could I fly with the trans 4ch until I eventually up grade? 2. This a/c has the retract option. Does it have the flap option also? I hear this a/c really needs flaps for a nice slow approach
i like the looks of the plane but is it screwed together or do you have to use glue ,has it been tested .good price for the size but if it is going to crash n burn on the first flight , not so good price.put a picture of the underside and a little more constuction info
The screwing the plane together issue, works great. The parts fit good and tight, and if you need to repair a wing or elavator is nice to work on or fix. And you can always add some glue, if your a little apprehensive about the integrity.
this butcher bird is a great rendition of an a model fw. scale appearances are good and it has a strong motor and speed control. it does land hot so flaps, which can be full or split are a good add and definatly get the electric hobbyking retracts. I have repainted mine to resemble the winter paint scheme of lt. walter nowotny
