The P-47 Thunderbolt was produced in larger numbers than any other US warplane which was largely due to it's versatility. Originally a heavy fighter, the P-47 was hampered by "short leg's" for bomber escort duty but it was quickly discovered to be very effective ground attack fighter as it could carry a decent payload, was heavily armed with eight 0.50 cal machine guns and was able to withstand heavy battle damage, it is largely regarded as the forerunner of today's multi-role fighter.
This tough EPO P-47 Plug and Fly is a large, superbly detailed looking warbird that will take a minimal amount of time to asemble. The powerful motor, ESC are pre-fitted, as are the servo's which are standard full size types for the elevator and rudder. The electric retracts are also pre-installed, including a retracting tailwheel.
There is lot's of detail and a full range of armament included with the kit, the four blade prop really looks the part and this big "Jug" will look stunning as it straffes your flying patch! Due to a very light wingloading, it is a pussycat to fly and courtesy of the large pre-installed flaps lands more like a trainer, an easy to build, easy to fly large warbird with good looks and performance to match, a perfect addition for your collection.

When I reconnected the ESC to motor, come to find out that the color coded wires red, yellow, black, will make the motor run clockwise. You have to reverse the wires to get it to run counterclockwise. Great product from China. I guess you get what you pay for when you buy China products.During shipment the ESC disconnected from the motor. It was way in the back inside the plane. Shipping company's really through the boxes around when they are being shipped. It took about an hour to reconnect the ESC to the motor. Had to pull the motor out of the plane so I could put the ESC wires out the front of the cowl and reconnect the motor. Then put the motor back in the plane. This is one BIG WAR BIRD. Did not glue wings together, used clear shipment tape to connect them together. Works very well. Instruction book sucks. It's made by FMS BlitzRC works. Batt is 14.8vI managed to get this one as a freebie offer. However, having received it today with only a couple of very very minor issues with a bit of glue missing from the flap hinge and cowl, I would have been happy paying full price for one!
Superb build quality and paintwork is excellent. Not able to fly it yet as the weather is awful! Absolute 5* across the board!Great product at a great price!Purchased this from HK and absolutley LOVE this plane! I did open up the scoop in the rear to get some air through the fuse for cooling. The only place I could find for parts is "Starmax, who manufactures this for HK and others. With that 16 inch prop roaring on a low pass this thing sounds "lethal". Next thing is going to be a sound module to make it perfect!
Got to hand it to HK. They have a winner with this one!
Hey out there. I need some help. I bought the 1600 with retracts. Every thing went together fine. When I flew the maiden on it, I landed and the motor and the ESC was so hot I couldn't touch it. I brought it home and trimmed some of the foam out of the front of the motor bay, and also opened up the vent in the under side of the fuselage in front of the tail wheel. Took it back out and it still is flying very hot. Has anyone had this kind of problem?I did the test flight on my plane last night. Great flying and handling plane. Power to spare. Fly's at about 3/4 throttle at a nice cruise and will still climb if need be. Have to give it a 3 star overall rating because after the plane came down, the motor, ESC, and the battery wires were so hot you could hardly touch them. I am guessing that this situation might be caused because there are no cooling holes in the fuselage. I am flying with a 4S 4000 Mah Battery. Had a good 6 minute flight. The plane has plenty of power. Flying at 3/4 throttle you still have power to climb. Has anyone had a similar problem?Big foamie with nice details. CG is correct per instruction but in order to achieve it, you have to use at least 4S 5000mAH being pushed all the way to the front. Even with this large battery, you still need to add 90 grams of lead on the side of the motor mount (each side 45 grams) to achieve the CG. When the CG correct, it flies brilliantly but it is a bit too slow to my taste (I have to fly it full throttle all the time). With 4S 5000mAH you have around 7 min of flight time being full throttle most of the time. Beside CG, the other downside is to set the steering rudder because you have to install the wire yourself and it is a bit tricky. CheersThe plane is a great looking bird. I received the plane and it was packed great, with all the parts there. My one problem was the screws that hold the wing on. does not match up with the fuselage. Easy fix with a little hot glue. Inventory of parts very poor and if I would need extra parts, I would be out of luck. The manual is very poor and if I hadn't had building experience, and knew how to measure screws I would have been out of luck. I can't find the size of the prop, so I can't order an extra one.Started putting my plane together, and none of the retracts works. Contacted the support team and they want me to send the gear back to them at my expense, and then wait for them to make a decision as to what is the problem. Not only is this going to take a long time, but I am going to be out an airplane to fly. I don't have a bunch of money, and stretched my budget to buy the plane. I am probably going to just make it a fixed gear plane, and not buy again.
