The DA-40 is a four-seat, low-wing cantilever monoplane which has a fixed tricycle landing gear and a T-tail. Designed primarily as a trainer aircraft the DA-40 is known for its benign handling at low speeds and its short take off and landing characteristics. The DA-40 successfully completed its maiden flight on the 5th November 1997.  

This brilliant sport scale model is perfect for the novice and experienced pilots alike. With it's high level of scale detail, most will not realize that it's a foamie at first glance! with its steerable nosewheel, molded wheel pants, hinged cockpit canopy, pilot and passenger seats, this model has it all! Constructed from ultra-durable EPO foam with lightweight plywood formers, this model can easily handle less than perfect landings without doing to much damage, this makes it great for less experienced pilots looking for a sport scale model to fly.

The DA-40 Aircraft arrives as an almost ready to fly and requires 4 servos (3x9g, 1x5g), 30A ESC, 28mm 1000-1500kv brushless outrunner motor, 11.1v 2200mAH 20~30c lipo and your own transmitter and receiver. The hardware pack contains all fixtures and fittings along with a tube of foam safe glue. All servo extension leads / Y-leads are pre-installed so there will be no need for any major alterations when assembling the airframe.

Received Airplane missing right side wheel spats. This was done deliberately because the whole landing gear was packed and taped in protective foam, so it was a deliberately sent out that way.
Plane flys great, I have 4S funfighter motor installed with 8X3.8 prop and 1000mah 4s battery. No trim issues. Stall is gentle and landing easy. But will will go into a stall spin if your don't apply power and the spin is bad!
I added flaps and the make landings and take offs very nice.
4 crowns only because of bad Quality Control, otherwise this is a 5 overall.

Plane arrived no damages to foam, better quality than I expected, Huge cabin area! it looks like a tadpole *-) seems all the pieces are there, after assembly and maiden I will add to this review, but looks better than the pictures displayed of it!

Hello friends
After hitting the plane you report in detail
1 there is a defect in the front of the plane must provide the engine forward slightly (see attachments)
2 front wheel change the direction should be installed well
3 position battery and control is not clear from the factory and is clear in the catalog (see attachments) cant fined CG
4 landing too fast must activate flaps to reduce speed when landing
In general plane is beautiful and graceful and gorgeous Air Sports

Use the plane in 2200ma
prop 8x 4.4 or 8x6 good
motor 2826 1400 or 1100
Speed 30a

I purchased this model not to long ago.
it's a great plane to fly and a great looker
too. i never used the decals so i wouldn't
know if they are any good. I painted it myself.
tinted the windows, and painted the bottom black
and the top blue. my setup was a park 450 1200kv,
plush 30a ESC, orange Rx, Parkzone, Flyzone, and E-Flite
servos, MA 3 Blade 9x7 prop and 1.75 3 blade spinner.
flies great. flaps were very easy to add. fun plane to fly.

So far this is a build review only. First impressions on opening box were good. Well packed and arrived safely.

On sorting out parts discovered one wing bolt was not threaded, one nut missing from control connector and the heads on the screws for attaching motor were too large to fit next to motor body.

Had to add 2 x 3mm ply in front of firewall to move motor forward so prop cleared cowl.

Added small length of tubing for nose wheel pushrod to run in to stop flexing.

Plane went together reasonably easy. Spent time on positioning r/x, esc and battery.

Biggest hassle was applying the decals. Decals for wings were too large. Trouble getting edges to stay down especially where cuts were made for control surfaces. One of the fuselage decals came apart when applying it. Printed area came away from the adhesive back. The cream/gray decal for over canopy was a disaster. Discarded that piece.

Motor installed is a Turnigy 2217/1050, 9x7 3 blade prop., 30 amp Plush esc, 2 x TS9 servos, 2 HXT 900 and 1 Turnigy 1600 for elevator. Orange r/x and model balanced as indicated with a Zippy Compact 1800 3S, 25C lipo. Will submit further report after test flight.
