The Curtiss P-40 was one of the most widely used fighters of WW2 seeing more combat in more theatres globally than any other fighter from either side of the conflict. The later 'N' model was considered by pilots to be the finest version of this versatile aircraft and seeing as Durafly makes the best EPO warbirds out there, what could be better than a P-40N from Durafly.
The Durafly P-40N captures beautifully the classic lines of this much loved (though often over shadowed) fighter, and with the multiple national markings provided in the box, it pays homage to the many airman of the many nations under which it served valiantly in WW2. This P-40N sets a new standard for Durafly both in terms of finish close up on the ground, and truly warbird like performance in the air. Boasting a whole host of unique features that include 100 degree metal trunnion twist and turn retracts for rock solid ground handling, super smooth paint and surface finish with fine scale panel lines, and for the first time with a Durafly 1100mm warbird, a power train suitable for both 3 and 4S set-up with no modifications required.
The P-40N comes with all electronics pre-installed ready to hook up to your choice of 7ch receiver. A minimal part count allows assembly to be completed in just a few steps. The molded EPO airframe has a highly detailed surface finish externally, carbon reinforcement internally and features a color matched hard plastic belly skid. It also has good access to all electronics via the battery/canopy hatch, excellent cooling throughout and of course a very authentic looking scheme. Quality is definitely the name of the game here.
The P-40N feels closer to flying a real warbird than any other model in the Durafly range, and that's a good thing! With its higher than average level of reinforcement in the wing (due to wing and retract geometry) the P-40N is the heaviest single engine warbirds thus far from Durafly. However a well-designed wing and optimal power system ensure that the P-40N is our most enjoyable and realistic flying warbird yet. A 2200mah 65C 3S lipo will give good out and out scale performance, however a 2200mah 25C 4S pack will really bring this model to life for sport and aerobatic flying!
Durafly is proud to bring you this P-40N Warhawk and we're confident you'll share that pride both on the ground, and in the air.

An excellent plane, build quality, performance characteristicsReceived in perfect condition... this plane has an awesome finish! Great quality foam, paint, and stickers as well. Took about 1 hour and a half to get it ready to fly, everything fits perfectly! Just had to bind it on my Spektrum 7S, made some fine tunning on the servos and it was ready for take off. I'm using the orange 820 receiver with the orange flight stabilizer V2 plugged with the retracts, so its works only on take off and landing! By chance I had this stabilizer on maiden flight, because the battery was not set correctly as per the manual (my fault)!!! Got it back in one piece... thanks god! After having corrected this mistake, I tried it again and it has been a perfect flight! Be aware: this plane must land and take off with a good airflow on the wings as she has a quite good tendency to tip tall if the speed is too slow! Not a big issue when you know it. Accordingly, I would not recommend hand launching this P40 to get it airborne for this reason! The landing gear is honest, not weak at all if the landing is performed properly. All in all, this plane has a very good looking in the air and one of my favorite for sure! Thanks HK to provide great products at good price!!!When I received my P-40 I found that everything was in order and the plane it self was beautiful. The build was fairly easy and after it was assembled I just wanted to put it on a display stand. But being the flyer that I am I couldn't wait to get her in the air. The maiden was to say the least a disaster. She rose of the runway perfectly and turned into a beautiful flight pattern. Gear up and when I went to raise the flaps my finger hit the throttle back and she went into a tip stall. Only about 15 feet to the ground but still enough to break the fuse just aft of the exhaust stacks. So after a new fuse was ordered and all the electronics were switched over. I tried this again. This time with no flaps on take off. The flight was a success and she fly's perfectly. The foam on this aircraft is very weak and stall characteristics are strong. Fly with authority. She likes speed. On landing use full 30 degree flaps and she'll slow and set down on the gear very gentile. I love this plane, it will take a gentile touch and experience to master her but once you do there'll be many hours of fun flying.Very impressive looking bird! Fit and finish are amazing! This plane loves speed. I found myself flying at 80pcnt throttle on 3s. Much easier to cruse on 4s. The only drawback is the landing gear. The wire bends very easily. Even on a perfect touchdown . With no bounce. That's irritating in the sense that a belly landing will mess up the cowl flaps. Overall, 4.5 stars. Fix the gear issue and you got a 5 star plane!Die Warhawk sieht super aus und ist auch toll verarbeitet. Leider gibt es wie schon öfters beschrieben Probleme mit dem Einziehfahrwerk. Nach wenigen Versuchen stockte immer wieder ein Bein. Ich habe es geöffnet und mit einem Fett-Spray (Divinol) geschmiert. Seither funktioniert es sehr gut.
ACHTUNG: Das Modell ist sehr empfindlich auf dem Höhenruder. Auf keinen Fall mehr als 8 mm Ausschlag verwenden, ansonsten reißt das Modell schlagartig ab!
Note: the model is very sensitive to the elevator. In no case more than 8 mm used rash, otherwise the model breaks abruptly!plane is beautiful. assembly was very easy. instructions are easy to read. function test went flawless. all servos, retracts and motor work properly. only one hiccup with the prop adapter the hole for spinner screw was drilled crooked leaving it thinner on one side causing it to snap when tightening. have a new one on the way along with a spare. but top rating from me absolutely love the plane.Really nice warbird very authentic, quite stunned at the sheer size and detail of this kit. Only issue was paint peeled off during assembly, and faulty flap servo - other than that amazing technology and quality for the price.
Love the plane...looks fantastic...on the heavy side...but plenty of power..flys nice too!!
Thats the good part of my review the BAD part is the GEAR...they have grounded my plane since I have had it..ONLY 1 time in 2 sets of gear has it landed,,,then the wheels touchdown.. turn in..and BREAK...so plane is worthless with no gear ...here is what happens.
a very WEAK design...a tiny wire keeps and makes it twist..but this plane is so heavy that they can not hold them lined up straight...and landing with them off center puts too much stress on the pin and breaks them....NOW to boot THEY are ALWAYS " OUT OF STOCK" ......so my 200.00 plane has been sitting due to no replacement retract !!! a VERY big Minus for this P-40Awesome been watching it for ever!and its now finally fell into my price range bargain thanks for a great looking model Durafly keep up the good workIt's a beautiful warbird
