Following on from versions 1 and 2 of the H-King Avro Lancaster, this version 3 represents the lightest and most well-mannered version yet.

The V3 Lancaster is designed to be the most lightly loaded version of this classic model and therefore the best performing, it is a 'Lightweight, Heavy Bomber', that's hand launch-ready right out of the box. A differential thrust set-up for added yaw control and far more realistic flight performance is the key recommendation to get the very best out of the model, but she'll happily fly on throttle, elevator, and aileron control alone. The V3 Lancaster can now achieve up to 7 minutes flight time on a 1400mAh 3S, but still has the option of an electric retractable undercarriage for those that wish to have it. Weight over the earlier versions has been further saved by removing the opening bomb-bay door mechanism and servo, complete removal of the undercarriage, and removal of the tailwheel steering servo. This lighter weight makes hand launching a simple and trouble-free affair, slow, and realistic scale flight is greatly improved for those low, slow bombing passes, and less power is required meaning greater flight times.

The Lancaster was a British WWll heavy bomber that was designed and manufactured by the Avro Company in England. The Lancaster was powered by four Rolls-Royce Merlin engines and first saw service in 1942 and has become one of the most famous aircraft of WW2. It was at the core of RAF's Bomber commands strategic bombing offensive over Europe and it was the main aircraft for the night-time bombing campaigns that followed. The HobbyKing V3 has been finished in a new, authentic color scheme which depicts 619 Squadrons "Dumbo" PG-D aircraft that operated from RAF Strubby, Lincolnshire, during 1943-45.

The fully molded EPO foam "Plug N Fly" Lancaster V3 comes pre-painted with scale panel lines, the decals are factory applied, motors and ESC's are pre-wired and installed, the elevator and aileron servos are also pre-installed. Assembly is very straightforward, the canopy, gun turrets, and .303 machine guns need to be fitted, servo pushrods installed, and the tailplane needs gluing in place. Scale 3 blade propellers with spinners and molded cowlings finish off the Lancaster's stunning scale detail which makes this a practical, must-have model for any scale or warbird enthusiast. Battery and radio access is very easy through the bomb-bay doors and these are held closed while flying with some strong permanent magnets. The two-piece wing simply slides onto the wing joining spars and is held in place with two screws. However at 1320mm, the Lancaster is very easy to transport in one piece, so if you wish, the wing can be glued in place too for extra security.

Order was delivered within 7 days. (EU warehouse to Austria). The retractable undercarriage is from the global warehouse and will certainly take longer, but tatsächlich no problem. everything perfectly packaged. No visible damage. The quality of the model looks great. Will assemble it in the next few days. I'm already looking forward to the maiden flight. Price-performance 1a.

Great looking, some not quite so great issues

Nov 25, 2021

The plane looks remarkable out of the box, however considering this is version 3 I was a little disappointing with a couple of issues. The foam is very soft, its a pity the manufacturers did not use the same foam techniques as the Durafly Spitfire but I guess that would make the plane heavier. The wing attachment i though is not adequate on its own and it needs to be glued in place as well as the mechanical attachment. Overall this is a classic warbird which looks great but has some well documented flying quirks

What is the setup for the UBEC Set Y-Leads within the receiver? For the Throttle? You have one throttle wire coming out of both wings that calls for the splitting, and the ESC has a wire in the speed control that is installed in and goes into the receiver

Nice flying plane

Oct 13, 2021

Details are good. Some building is necessary. Unfortunately the lock for the wings is made with foam and thin plastik only. So with a hard landing it will break away (that cost it the 5th star for Quality and Overall rating). At first flight an aileron connector came loose and I had a hard landing. So I had to partially glue the wings to the fuselage afterwards. Start and landing with the optional retracts is easy. The plane has plenty of power even in higher gras. In flight I had around 4-5 min. flight time with a 1500 mAh LiPo and 45 - 50 % left, what is very good. It can be flown with half power only. For curves rudder might help a little bit, but is not available. It just looks not perfect. The retracts should be glued in with enough glue (remove paint in the areas for glue). The bay for the retracts is covered. This has to be removed when installing the landing gear. I cut out the cover for the moving gear and glued it back in place. The sound with 4 engines is good. All the installation and LiPo change is very easy due to the big bomb bay doors. As a summary I would definitely buy it again.

Another great kit from HobbyKing

Aug 26, 2021

Love the quality and model details. All that spoils it is the lack of spare parts, such as the optional undercarriage + wheels :-(.
