The Messerschmitt Bf-109e was the backbone of the Luftwaffe fighter force during world war 2 and one of the most iconic aircraft of the period. It was one of the most advanced fighters of its day and powerful piece of hardware for the German military war machine. Durafly has accurately reproduced the plane in two stunning schemes. One based on the 1940 Battle of Britain with the menacing "Yellow nose" and the other a 1941 tropical camouflage used in the Desert campaign.
Originally designed by Willy Messerschmitt in the mid-1930’s the Germans constructed over 33,000 Bf-109’s between 1939 – 1945 and they were flown in many theatres of operation. The Bf-109e was a fierce adversary for allied fighters such as the Hawker Hurricane and the legendary Supermarine Spitfire. With its lightweight design, retractable landing gear, destructive 20mm cannons, powerful Daimler-Benz liquid cooled fuel injected inverted V12 the Bf-109e would have made the Luftwaffe pilot feel nearly invincible.
Durafly’s 1100mm Messerschmitt Bf-109e is a fantastic scale rendition of the famous Luftwaffe fighter. The Durafly team has worked extremely hard to bring you the Bf-109e which is undoubtedly the best looking RC Bf-109e ever made. The Durafly Bf-109e has a modest 1100mm wingspan, scale electronic retracting landing gear, scale flaps and a powerful brushless outrunner motor spinning a three-bladed scale propeller. Power is provided by an AeroStar 3736-770KV motor, AeroStar 50A ESC and when combined with a 2200mAh 4S Lipo battery this gives an outstanding performance to this agile WW2 fighter. There is even a fully functional bomb drop system complete with scale bomb.
Willy's masterpiece is a perfect addition to the Durafly range and a fantastic adversary to the Durafly Spitfires.

This was my first Durafly airplane, have many Flightline, FMS, and Freewing products...I was very happy with the overall finish of this plane. I only wish they had included a decal placement sheet with the kit...Compliments on design and value. I have been waiting for a nice Bf109 for a while. The last one I had was a Gustav from Horizon, but with stick-in wheels, ugh!. This one is very well designed and has good quality components. Alas, the assembly department is sloppy. If a newbie took it out of the box to fly, it would surely fall out of the sky at some point for some odd reason:
1) Tail wheel was bent wrong, it interfered with the rudder operation, seriously straining the servo. Needed major re-work.
2) Aileron attachment fell out, was not glued in properly.
3) Elevator, rudder, tailwheel servo pushrod crimpers attached with simple nuts, no washers and not locked, you can bet they will fall off at some point.
4) Gear wheels are bent into different directions.
5) Battery compartment has no slip protection, the battery can slide back and forth and fall out. A sure recipe for a CG shift during flight, with lethal consequences.
6) Elevator push rod too long. Hit the receiver.
7) No instructions.
I am still pleased with this bird for it's compact size, good looks, and great features, but it took a 1/2 day's work to get technical in shape and I haven't decorated it, yet. Curious how it will fly.Very nice warbird not the best finnish as boasted, when compared to the p40 or mk1a spitfire these are much more refinedAgain a superb scale model from Durafly. A credit to all..but still no printed instructions,even the download pdf is incomplete. You'll need to google decalage placement to find where all the stencils go. Shame about that, I'd happily pay the extra dollar or so to save having to search and print. Small gripe,but on a scale model you want to replicate the real thing.
