  1. Finest Flying FMS Warbird, Period.

    Posted by Todd Breda on 5th Jun 2014

    I've flown a ton of foam warbirds over the years and nothing compares to the FMS 1400mm Zero. So incredibly stable and smooth, my friend was convinced I had a gyro in it. Flies like a much larger plane. Landings are complete non-events, in fact I can dead stick from 50 feet up with full split flaps and watch her land with the most gentle of inputs. Feels like cheating!

    I can't express enough to those thinking about purchasing this plane to GET ONE! You will NOT be disappointed. That, I can assure you.


  2. update

    Posted by Steven Kuehn on 4th Apr 2014

    This is my second one the first met the ground head on surprizingly was in good shape (thanks FMS for good constrution on the plane) but didn't want to do all the glueing back together. Still noses over on grass FMS needs to move the retracts out more to stop that it does say good for grass but it isn't and I don't have the option to fly on hard surface so just hope that I don't break props every time I land or take off. Still need a japanees pilot other than that it is a fun plane to fly I love it takes off with little effert on the grass just make sure you have lots of up elevator or you will nose over. Will give it a five star if FMS can fix that problem. I to added some weight on the tail it helped some.


  3. Much Better on the Asphalt

    Posted by Dale Curry on 30th Dec 2013

    As I mentioned on the previous review the plane should do better on a hard surface. Oh and did she... one of the best I've ever seen. She flies great and landing on the asphalt was a thing of beauty. I really wish that this Zero was not advertised as great on grass because this is simply not the case. If you have smooth tight grass maybe ok. Of the fields that I have been to most are not suited to this airplane. She deserves 5 stars as long as you LAND ON THE HARD SURFACE ONLY.


  4. Grass Landing Not So Good

    Posted by Dale Curry on 16th Dec 2013

    If your grass is not very tight and runway smooth you can forget about the pretty landing as does the P51 and T28 provide. I am going to take her to another field not to far from my local field where the surface is smooth asphalt.
    She flies great...sweet, just the grass thing. It is disappointing because it is advertised as good on grass and it's not. I used the 3000MAH Admiral and it balances at 75mm. Yep she is nose heavy which attributes to the nose over on landing thing. This is why I rate it 4 star. Fun to fly but sucky to land. Take off not so bad but I had to bump the throttle to get her rolling so she would not nose over trying to get her rolling. Again very disappointing.


  5. Short Rudder Control Rod and Short screws for control horns.

    Posted by Larry Sternberg on 15th Dec 2013

    Still in process of assembly my Zero A6ms and having problems with items noted above. Otherwise, seems to be ok.
    New problem is with the 1400mm foam P51 Mustang. Only had 2 flights and on second flight, one flap servo failed. I will have to purchase new servo or disconnect flaps.


  6. update on last review

    Posted by Steve K on 12th Nov 2013

    After flying this plane a few times now I love it. I think this will be my best one in the warbird bunch I have next to the P51. It flys great does what you want it to do it is fast and well put together. Only bad thing is it tends to nose over on landing but moving slow enough and lots of up elevator after landing that it doesn't break the prop so far. I did add some weight on the tail seams to helps some I do take off and land on grass but on a hard service it doesn't nose over so just be carefull when landing on grass. Still not much I would change over all on the plane the guys at the field loved it would get another if needed but hope I don't need to. Only bad comment I got on it was the pilot didn't look like a japanese.


  7. Great plane

    Posted by Steve K on 9th Nov 2013

    Recieved this on Thursday and had it together in no time. Would like to see some changes like the rudder and elevator be put on by screws like most of the other 1400 FMS planes need a japanese pilot instead of an american one would like to see the retracts set forward a little more so you wouldn't have so many nose overs on landing (will do the washer thing and see if that works) and the control horn connections and clevises are weak broke one right away when putting it on but had the extra one and need a better tail wheel after a couple of takeoff and landings had to keep straightening it up. Flies great a little bit of tork to the left on takeoff but useing rudder takes care of that. Over all the plane is great the detail is great except the pilot. Working on a device to drop the bomb hope to have it working soon. Keep up the good work FMS and MotionRC is GREAT !! Will continue to order from them.


  8. Smooth flyer

    Posted by Scott on 10th Sep 2013

    This Zero is undoubtedly the best flying and looking foamy I have ever purchased, and I have bought several, all war birds. It is very stable and landings are easy, without flaps, but I do fly from a hard runway. My only complaint would be the poor quality of the control horns, and clevises. I was also nervous about the prop setup but it actually works great with a little attention to balancing. A bit more room for the huge bundle of wires would be nice too.


  9. Just a beauty to fly and watch

    Posted by Kevin C Oldham on 21st Aug 2013

    I'm a novice who has spent some time flying complex planes on a Phoenix4 sim and a Super Cub LP out at the field and I must say, this is a graceful, powerful, but easy to fly airplane. Don't recommend grass landings, only pavement to avoid nose overs. Don't be afraid newbies, you can fly this airplane, just spend some time on a flight sim and you will be fine and make sure you have plenty of airspace with no tress. This plane flies fassst. Great service and a great plane from Motion RC.


  10. FMS Zero

    Posted by Ben on 18th Aug 2013

    I will start with the bad, the bad is nose overs. This plane like alot of foam electrics in this class have tendency to nose over unless your flying on hard surface. With that being said, I would also recommend that you weight the tail, most of the foam warbirds in this class are very nose heavy and this one is no exception. I fly on a grass field and its an exceptional grass field in great shape. After putting weight in the tail the nose overs are not as bad, but this plane will nose over if you do not grease the landing, and then keep the throttle on and let it settle to a stop, do not just cut the throttle or you can set your trim set to keep the prop turning. With that being said this thing is a flyer! It handles superb, it gets off the ground in 6-8 feet its much more gentle on battery consumption than the 1400mm Mustang as example or even the large FMS Hellcat. The flap system looks great, you do not need them, but this plane is HARD to stall, it floats that good. I gave it a 4 due to the nose over. So far with weight in the tail and a better CG its much better. I have not tinkered with putting some washers under the gear yet to extend them some, but that might be next as I did the same with the giand FMS Hellcat with excellent result. In my opinion, this plane is well worth the money!


  11. Awsome Plane

    Posted by Harvie of the Albuquerque Flyers Club on 3rd Aug 2013

    I have to say, at first I had my doubts about flying this plane due to a few glitches with the gear and the ESC but with the help of Alpha, I got that taken care of. Build was quick, about an hour and a half including set up on the radio. As well, I was skeptical about the 3300 4S battery but as Alpha told me all the way in and down the canapy fit with no mods, and while it was nose heav (which is a good thing), it flew outstanding with only a couple of down trim clicks. It flew as good if not better than Motion RC described to me. As well it lands with out the use of flaps and at only about 1/8 throttle. GREAT flyer and as always GREAT company to do business with. Thanks AGAIN motion RC and Alpha, as alays I continue to try to steer you customers from my state of New Mexico. Keep up the good work, and please get a T-shirt together and send me one. :)


  12. FMS ZERO

    Posted by Mike on 27th Jul 2013

    Again, FMS has done a great job. This model flies great, looks the part. Only have two minor issues with the aircraft. First, the L.H. wing was not molded correctly, would not fit properly when joining with fuselage, minor trimming, sanding of mating areas had to be done in order to get the wing even close to correctly seating...still needs to be adjusted after flying it and seeing how it handled. Second, really wish they would change the tail assembly to a screw or bolt on installation. Been at this for many years, and now with all of the large foamies, haven't found another brand with the type of quality that FMS provides. Have the P-38, P-51 also. A for the guys at MRC, Great job with customer support/product support. Will be doing more business with them.


  13. The BEST FMS 1400mm warbird

    Posted by Unknown on 12th Jul 2013

    This airplane is amazing. It assembles in minutes, balances on the Admiral 4s 3000mah pushed all the way forward and not cutting any foam, and flies for 7 minutes. No problems at all!

    Its flight envelope it wide: super slow approaches, near unlimited vertical, four point rolls, huge loops, tight snap turns....it flies anything you can throw at it. It is easier to fly than the other 1400mm FMS warbirds. Yes I have flown them all so I can compare them authoritatively. The Zero is easy to land, also. It doesn't need flaps to slow down to a crawl and come in nice and smooth. No noseovers yet on my tarmac runway.

    The external detail is fantastic. The cowl with its molded details is a very nice touch, also. My favorite part about this airplane is the retracts. The inner gear doors are pushed down by the mains' retract strut/wheel as it retracts. The result is a very clean "wheels up" layout, for maximum streamlining. I also like how this setup negates the need for two small servos to run the inner gear doors. Less servos means less complexity and less power drain from your UBEC.

    All in all I give this airplane a 10 out of 10. Almost everyone and their brother has a P51, but the Zero is so rare it really stands out from the crowd. It flies quick, smooth, and makes a neat sound as it passes you. The prop and motor itself is very quiet so the sound is just a bonus. I couldn't be happier with this plane now I want to buy the other colored one (Tan).


  14. Solid performer

    Posted by Kombuster on 20th Jun 2013

    Flew it first time this morning. Tracks like its on rails - very honest airplane. Great presence in the air. After beating the runway with my P-51 for a couple of weeks Zero landings felt too easy. Amended the CG to 77 mm due to heavier battery. Flies well with both 3000mAh and 3600mAh. Retracts seem reliable but the tailwheel just needs more heavy duty tire. This plastic job isn't holding to the ground very well and slow taxi in a wind can be an exercise. Other than that very happy with the plane.


  15. A great 1400 mm warbird

    Posted by Unknown on 28th Apr 2013

    The first thing you notice about this Zero is the really good detailing of this plane. It is modeled identical to the full scale Zero used in air shows. It is easily put together. This is my frist large warbird I have flown. I had no problems taking this plane off of our club's grass field. The Zero handled smoothly in the air and on a modrate windy day I had no problems. The landing glide slope was as a little longer than I was familiar with but after a few passes I brought the plane in wihout a problem. It did nose over upon landing a couple of times as our field at that time had too many dandelion clumps and weeds but the landing speed was slow enough that the nose over caused no damage at all. This Zero is really great for those that have gone beyond trainers and would like to fly the larger warbirds.
