Designed by Sir Sydney Camm and first entering service in 1937, the Hawker Hurricane formed one half of the legendary partnership that was the backbone of the Royal Air Force during the Battle of Britain. The Hurricane chalked up an impressive 656 German aircraft shot down during the battle compared to its more glamourous stablemate, the Supermarine Spitfire that accounted for 529.
Although slightly slower and with a lower rate of climb than the Spitfire, the Hurricane was a highly manoeuvrable and stable gun platform and proved to be adaptable to any task required of it, serving in every major theatre of war from 1939-45 and was adapted for carrier operations and night-fighting.
This 700mm wingspan replica is finished in the colors of the Hurricane flown by the CO of 257 Sqn, Sqn. Ldr. Robert 'Bob' Stanford-Tuck DFC DSO from RAF Coltishall in Norfolk UK during 1940-1941.
Such is the scale detail on this great little model that it comes complete with its own desktop display stand for showing-off when you're not flying it.
The model has full 4 channel control on ailerons, elevator, rudder and throttle; a scale 3-bladed propeller, exhaust stacks, antenna mast and cockpit detail, together with a scale pilot figure.
The surface detail underneath the dark earth/green camouflage enhances the already fine looks of this iconic fighter.
For simplicity and weight saving the Hurricane has no undercarriage fitted, providing a perfect solution to the need for a quick scramble in the local park!
The plug and fly format of this model only requires a few minutes of assembly time, even a screwdriver and velcro are included!
All you will require to have this Hurricane in the air is a 2S 650~850mAh 20C LiPoly battery and your own transmitter and receiver.

Great looking warbird but very difficult to fly. The CG is hard to setup. One need to add about 14 - 21 grams of weights to the nose in addition to the battery all the way forward. The 850mah battery fits very tight in the battery slot and difficult to install and remove. The airplane is very sensitive on the elevator and only requires about half of the recommended throw to control the plane. This airplane is fast and needs an experienced pilot to fly.REceived wel, good packed, etc.
The p[lane is clearly a static model that has been transferred to a model to fly.
COG is impossible to achieve without significant amount of lead in teh nose (60grams).
Even then it is so weak that a smooth landing already results in a broken wing. There is no carbon reinforcements in the wing at all.
Overall the worst by I have ever made with HK.
RobLooks great... hope the flying backs up the looks!the speed controller wont go in its slot.the 2 recomended batteries are too thick and wont fit.there,s no picture showing where the battery goes anyway.with a battery which is suitable it wont balance without ballast even when its full forward and no receiver or cockpit fitted. one aileron wasnt level and was down so would invite tipstall.no position for the receiver marked. aileron movement for example is minus 6mm and minus 6mm if that makes sense,elevator and rudder are minus/minus as well.c of g at 33pcnt looks too far back.anyone who forces a battery in and dosnt check the balance will have a very short flight. good value for money for anyone willing and able to redress these issues. will add more when its flown
