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.

Bought one (first day of release, 24 hours later they were out of stock in UK warehouse), built two days ago and maiden flight this morning. Very calm, but cold, morning. Ground frozen. Hand launched (left hand) at just over half throttle. This thing has plenty of power!! Sailed off perfectly. Quite a bit of trimming required to get her to fly level. (My trim increments must be very small because I was trimming for ages but when I finally landed, the surfaces had barely moved). Flies like a dream. Sounds amazing. I have set up differential thrust (25%). It worked really well. I intend to reduce this to much less than 25%. It was turning nicely with very little input. I also set this up on a function switch so it can be turned on/off. I think I might try mixing the aileron and rudder (diff thrust).
I'm using a 2200 battery which is balancing at 50mm back from the leading edge. I could not get the battery any further back. It seems to be well balanced in flight. I had an easy 10 minute plus flight. I set my battery alarm at 3.5 V but landed before it went off. Landing was text book. Just ease of the power (not totally), and she just glided down... Landed perfectly.... Sadly due to the frozen ground it broke one of the inner props... Devastated to say the least as I had another battery ready to go. Ordered 8 new props but will have to wait before the next flight. Lesson learnt. Don't land on frozen field.... Other than that, really chuffed!! Need to maybe put some clear coat on the bomb bay doors to stop the paint being scrubbed off.

colis arrivé rapidement,la dessus rien à dire.par contre le carton de l'avion plus que banal,aucunes photos sur l'emballage ,au plus simple,blanc de chez blanc.toutes les tourelles auraient pu etre installées en usine,pas de manque de place dans le carton.peinture trop fragile,s'écaille trop facilement.les finitions a certains endroit sont pas terrible du tout.obligé de repercer les trous pour introduire les shapes en mèche de 2 mm,ça fait pour moi déjà pas mal,pour le vol je verrais plus tard le temps n'y est pas,en conclusion pour une troisème version il y a encore du pain sur la planche.
