So, you want a fast!?
Forget boring scale details and shelf queen good looks this P40 is built for speed and all out fun! Dog fight with friends on 3S or use a 4S pack for heart pounding high speed passes, either way the Fun fighters have you covered. The combination of the light weight airframe, a high power motor and a simple aileron and elevator setup place these models amongst the most exhilarating park flyers to hit the market this year. Dont be left out of the fun!
This model comes plug and fly and only requires a few minutes of assembly time and flies like its on rails thanks to the one piece molding technique used in the construction. All you will require to have the P40 in the air is a 3~4S 850mAh 20C battery and your own transmitter and receiver ( / )

Wow fast and fast lol seriously great little flyer bit twitchy but its always going to be with its weight and size. I used a turnigy 800mah 35c and has plenty of speedok plane,just dont listen a word to instuctions on weight and balance on this thing.put battery right forward.had more trouble with balance than all my other planes combined(about 7 planes)flown 20 times and had 3 flights over 5 seconds.weght too far bak running turnigy 3s 850ma nanos in it.flys like an angry ferritt but at least it takes a huge amount of punishment.be sure to buy a BIIIG bottle of glue to fix this thing ae.
Awesome speed off zippy compact 1000mAh 35C 3S. Ensure you balance the prop and spinner.Had first flight today in really windy conditions . Went well . Tried 1300 nano 3 cell battery first . Not a lot of spare room in there . Then tried 850 4 cell and went much much better . Hardly any trimming needed . Factory ESC from my T28 funfighter went in this as all the bullet connectors and xt 60 plug were already attached .Peeled the shrinkwrap of the heatsink and after mixed flying ESC was fairly warm but not as bad as I thought it would be. May make an air scoop ( from half of a KFC spoon, just cut the spoon bit in half , drill hole throgh the fuselage, then glue scoop on over hole ) ) to divert air onto ESC .A real good plane. Fun to fly with.
fast on 3 cell's. DONT'T FLY 4 CELL'S ON THE STOCK REGULATOR. IT WILL BREAKE !!!
flies verry fast.
a bit tricky to hand launch.
Best practice is to let a partner hand launch it.
a hard push, a bit up is best.
good advice : put dual rate on 40pcnt on for launching. When the plane hase not enough speed it listens verry hard to the airlerons.
Dont fly to slow when landing.
NOT a beginners plane.Very easy to build, good instructions and with correct cg 32mm behind leaning edge. This plane does not come with XT 60 connecters it comes with bullets. Hand launch is tricky because the plane always wants to roll left (torque from motor). In the air it tracks straight when trimmed out and i fly with a 3s 1300 perfect cg and power and is clocking at least 60 mph. half throttle. Warning: THIS PLANE TIPSTALLS VERY EASILY IN LOW SPEEDS. The plane at less then 1/4 throttle will tipstall coming in for a landing. This is how you should land: make sure you are far away to get slowly low to the ground about 5ft. or1meter off the ground at 1/3 throttle soon cut throttle at about 2 ft. off the ground and it glides in hot but if you have grass it should not be a problem. I have crashed 2 times because of tipstalls but this means I can test how easy the repair is. Its very easy if your motor mount get loose it has epo to guide how much torque you need no counteract thrust. I do recommend to take pics of the motor and torque just in case. Over all you are paying for a very good motor/esc (don't run this on 4s just saying) that are worth at least 80 dollars and if you crash hard you make a scratch build racer:D. I do recommend this product to all experienced pilots but not to new comers.Top Modell fliegt wie Sau der Vogel... mit 4S und 5,5X5,5 nicht zu bremsen ;-) macht einfach nur spa!!!Out of the box, both aileron servos were stripped. One completely stripped, the other had a skip in it. I replaced both with HTX900 servos. After the 8th flight, the elevator servo developed a random twitch, causing the plane to go into a loop. So, I changed that servo out to an HTX900, too. I wish HK would sell the Fun Fighters as kits, the components that come with the plane as a PNP are sub par. I also changed out the ESC to a 30 amp. Finally, the plane is dialed in and is a blast to fly. Worth the extra work to get it right!Received mine yesterday,well packaged, and no damage,assembly was easy,and I'm looking fwd to the scare!
Cheers aus hkLove this little airplane! It's fast, fun and a handfull to handle: ) I didn't got the recomended cg to work. The manual says 32mm from the leading edge, but my p40 works best at ( strange enough) 15mm from the leading edge! I use the nano-tech 4s 850mha. But anyway, I really like this one!! Just buy it and have the time of your life:)
