Description

The F-18 was designed as a carrier based supersonic all-weather fighter/ground attack aircraft, which has been such a succesful design, the Hornet is flown by several airforces around the world.The F-18 features a high thrust/weight ratio and outstanding dogfighting capability courtesy of it's excellent arodynamic design. Having carved out a reputation for versatility and reliability, as well as earning as impressive combat record, the F-18 Hornet can be truly regarded as an aviation classic.

This stunning model does the F-18 justice both in terms of looks and performance, finished in the famous "Jolly Rodger" scheme, the fuselage features nicely moulded panel lines and excellent scale mouldings for the vertical stabilizers. The wing is foam core/balsa sheet and the large ailerons combined with the large all-moving tail means F-18 like maneoverability. The model comes with fixed under-carriage but is easily converted to retracts.

The Hornet is a fast jet and with the right set up, this model won't disappoint, this F-18 will need a 6s~8s set up to get the best from it, high speed is the name of the game but just as addictive are the "high alfa" slow passes, a superb flyer and a real looker, this big Hornet is a must for jet fans.

Je l ai monte en 10s avec un fan rc lander et esc castle creation. Detruit au premier vol, je crois que mon centre de gravite etait trop tail heavy. De plus mon set up etait trop pesant et rendait l avion bien trop lourde malgre la pousse annonce de 10 lbs par ceux qui m ont vendu l edf.
Dommage!

Pluses: well done basics such as fuselage, elevators and wing panels.

Negatives: No instructions. Missing many of the required hardware parts to get the model flying. Missing elevator attachment to elevator rode that will connect to pushrod. Cracks on intake ducting that needs repair.

This can easily be made into a fine kit with more attentions to the items above.

Great bird, but quality of finish is not really good (can rabble off the paint by fingernail)! And it is heavy!!! Bird is 1670g with 12 blade fan, all together with retracts is 3020g! Dont know how HK is getting always to their low weights?!? Looking forward for first flight!

Recommended CG of 9 cm is wrong. Way too tail heavy which caused my test flight crash. I changed it to 6 cm and it flew OK.

Very nice jet. The dimensions are good. But the finish is sometimes randomly. The rudders are very heavy. To mount a retractable landing gear, it takes a lot to make changes. The implentation of different elements within the plane requires a lot of thoughts ...

plane arrived poorly packed. fuselage had cracks that i can repair. canopy was cracked very badly. after several emails it became clear that hk would not replace and i was wasting my time. unable to find replacement anywhere. will try to make something. too bad such a nice looking plane has such poor support. last fragile thing i order from hk.
