Freewing Flightline F8F-1 Bearcat 1200mm PNP

Description

The F8F “Bearcat” was Grumman’s last piston engine fighter to conquer the skies. First taking flight in August 1944 and powered by a massive Double Wasp engine, the Bearcat’s performance was superior to many jet powered aircraft of the same era. Over 1,200 Bearcats were produced, operating around the world and participating in conflicts from Korea to Vietnam. The F8F also served from 1946-1948 with the Blue Angels, the US Navy’s premier flight demonstration squadron, and set the foundation for generations of inspiring excellence by Blue Angel pilots. In 2016, FlightLine RC commemorates the 70th Anniversary of the Blue Angels by presenting this electric flying model to inspire new generations to appreciate the historic F8F Bearcat. This is the only RC Bearcat that is officially licensed by Northrop Grumman.

FlightLine RC presents an exciting 1/9 scale flying electric replica of the F8F-1 Bearcat. This EPO foam model assembles easily in minutes and features a scale profile with many plastic detail parts such as spring-loaded inner gear doors, highly detailed cowl and radial engine, and removable cannon barrels. The 1200mm wingspan removable wing is easy to transport and strategic carbon reinforcements provide lightweight strength. The Bearcat’s magnetic hatch reveals a large battery compartment that can also accommodate a flight stabilization gyro (sold separately). Cooling airflow is channeled over the battery and ESC compartment. Large flaps help stabilize the aircraft for very slow and controlled landings to accomplish that perfect carrier landing!

Scale power is provided by a 3748-580KV brushless motor with 4-blade scale propeller, which provides impressive vertical climbing power and 120kph/75mph level speed on a 4s battery. The Bearcat is optimized for satisfying scale performance and extended flight times of 6-7 minutes on a 2500mAh, or up to 8 minutes with throttle management using a 4s 4000mAh.  An optional High Performance Power System Set provides 147kph/87.5mph level speed and increased vertical performance with slightly shorter flight times.

FlightLine RC’s F8F-1 Bearcat is a suitable aircraft for novice warbird pilots to advanced pilots. Its 490mm wide landing gear stance provides stable ground handling especially on grass when compared to other aircraft with narrower gear stances or smaller wheels. The power to weight ratio also allows for most any acrobatic maneuver you can imagine, yet the Bearcat’s large wing and flying surfaces are most conducive to stable, scale flight, for an overall relaxing flying experience. Landing under power with full flaps can yield a very short landing length, which is ideal for pilots flying in confined areas.

The FlightLine RC F8F-1 Bearcat arrives completely painted in dark blue, with green gear wells. Included inside the box are two optional decal sets:

  1. Blue Angels Demonstration Team, 1946 (including our special 70 anniversary decal)
  2. US Naval Reserve, Olathe, Kansas, 1948

Beautiful replica

Very nice and quite faithfully reconstructed model of this plane.
The big advantage is the possibility of making many markings.
He will not write about the properties of the volatile of this model because he did not fly at the moment
However, I have to write about the shipment, which despite the distance France -Poland has arrived quite quickly.A and one more thing, a very nice gesture in the form of a surprise, we are talking about an elegant cap with the company logoTurbines RC
