Freewing  FlightLine P-38L Lightning 1600mm PNP (Pacific Silver)

Description

The legendary P-38 “Lightning” revolutionized aviation history in World War II. Designed by a skilled team of engineers led by Clarence Johnson and Hal Hibbard, the P-38 was the only American fighter that was continually produced from before Pearl Harbor in 1941 to after the Japanese surrender in 1945. Over 9,900 P-38s were built, 3,810 of which were the superior P-38L variant. Revered by its foes as the “fork tailed devil”, the P-38 excelled as a fighter, interceptor, reconnaissance platform, long range escort, and as a ground attack aircraft. The P-38 Lightning was flown by the top four higher scoring American Aces in World War II. The aircraft also famously shot down Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto’s aircraft during “Operation Vengeance” on April 18, 1943.

FlightLine RC’s P-38L Lightning is a 1600mm wingspan, semi-scale flying replica molded from EPO foam. FlightLine RC’s P-38 represents the pinnacle of engineering for a foam electric P-38. It is the largest mass-produced foam electric P-38 in the world, with a high level of quality and scale fidelity. We know our customers have been waiting for a large P-38 with good size, clean wiring, and scale lines. The wait is over, it’s here!

This P-38 was designed for easy operation. Its outer wings disassemble with four screws for convenient transportation and allowing the aircraft to sit on all three wheels without the outer wings attached. The horizontal stabilizer can also be removed with screws for maintenance or replacement. FlightLine RC’s P-38 Lightning features durable electronic retractable landing gear, five sequenced servo driven landing gear doors, day-bright LEDs, machine gun details, plastic nose cone and cowls, four flaps, accurate canopy and nacelle shape, and other scale details. The correct wing dihedral and other scale profiles were precisely modeled to produce an accurate P-38 shape which honors this historic warbird. Each rudder is directly controlled by its own servo. The cockpit layout accommodates a wide range of 4S 14.8v Li-Po batteries with ample space for electronics, all accessible under the long magnetic hatch cover which spans almost the entire length of the pilot’s nacelle. To ensure a high degree of structural rigidity, the entire model was designed around a special framework of carbon rods and reinforcement points. This framework strengthens the aircraft during high speed maneuvers, while still providing a gentle and forgiving flying behavior.

The stock PNP version is equipped with two 3748 brushless outrunner motors and two 12x7 3-blade counter-rotating propellers for the perfect scale appearance. With the recommended 4S 14.8v 5000mAh (one battery per side or a single battery with your series adapter), the P-38 boasts sufficient power for large consecutive loops and a level top speed of 81mph. An optional “High Power Upgrade Set” can be purchased separately to obtain a level top speed of 94mph. The Upgrade Set includes two 3648 motors, two 12x8 2-blade counter-rotating propellers, and two 2-blade spinners.

Color Schemes and Decal options:

The P-38 is offered in two color schemes, “Pacific Silver” and “Allied Green”. The “Pacific Silver” scheme includes four decal sets from the 431st Squadron led by Medal of Honor recipient Thomas McGuire. The “Allied Green” scheme includes four decal sets from various squadrons in Europe and other theaters. Choose which decal set you want to apply to make your P-38 unique among your friends! The decals are "peel and stick", made with a very thin adhesive vinyl which is easy to apply and does not require water.

BELLE MAQUETTE

j'en suis a plus de 50 vols avec cette machine ca a de la gueule et de la présence en l'air. J'utilise une batterie 4S 4000 pour rester dans un poids raisonnable et passer des loopings grand rayon sans prendre de l'élan ,toute la voltige de base passe bien ,les atterrissages avec les volets nickel .L'inconnévient je n'ai que 4m/m et demi d'autonomie.J'ai du recoller les deux boitiers de train cause trous de lapin sur la piste.A cette occasion j'ai vu que la colle utilisée n'est pas au top.
En conclusion un tres joli modele pour se faire plaisir
