FMS 1400mm (55") Wingspan BF-109F Receiver Ready Warbird - Brown - FMS046

The FMS 1400mm BF-109F is finally available in the new brown color scheme. Our favorite feature on this plane is the unique "multi-stage" split flaps. This is in addition to servoless retracts, lights, and the usual FMS top quality construction. While the BF-109 is certainly enjoyable to look at on the ground, it is even more enjoyable to fly. The FMS BF109 has great vertical ability due to the larger motor and three blade prop. Flight manners are very good. The BF109 looks as unique in the air as it does on the ground.

Features:

  • Super Scale details
  • Realistic 13" Three Blade Propeller
  • Unique landing gear
  • High visibility LED navigation lights
  • Full functioning Multi-stage split flaps for quick takeoffs and smooth landings
  • Durable EPO Foam

  1. Oustanding flight performance

    Posted by Paul H Lange on 17th Dec 2014

    I am thoroughly impressed with the fitment, detail and most importantly ...the flight performance of this model. The build was super straight forward easy. It seems bigger than the numbers suggest....perhaps because it's nearly as long as its wingspan. It took me a couple of passes in the maiden to come to grips at its speed...very deceptive since the model is pretty quiet with a balanced prop assembly....this thing will move on a fresh battery if you give it all the berries!!!!

    At first I thought my motor thrust offset was wrong....so I used washers to match the nose cowling. I then took all it all back out and set it back to complete stock set up.....flies perfectly. Loads of power and with the huge bomb this thing is very beefy in flight. In fact I have shared the sky with much larger gassers and found that I needed to back off to at least 50% in order to stay in formation....easily able to overtake or run away from most without much fan fare. I found the white wing tips and spinner are easily tracked in flight. Wing tip LED's are large in the wing tips so low light flying is a real treat. Flaps slow this aircraft to a very slow speed thus landings can be smooth as silk....however we are best advised to power all the way down to the mains and use full elevator up as always on grass field.

    Flight times look to be 7-8 minutes via 4s 40C 3300mAh LiPo at mixed throttle. I also deployed, maidened and fly with the A3 Pro SE Gyro.....what a joy to fly. This thing is honey sweet smooth and looks menacing in the air...another must have flyer.....and that's what is most important to me.....but there is a challenge due to the narrow landing gear stance as it can roll out on a wing tip if you turn too quick during ground maneuvering.... this adds to the character of the model

  2. BF109F 1400mm

    Posted by Silvio Sandvoss on 29th Nov 2014

    All in all its a beauty! Love the upgraded retracts, over all looks are awesome and flys GREAT! Gave it 4 stars because thus far with every FMS model I bought I had issues with at least one aileron or flap servos that just quit. On the BF109F it was the aileron and the FW190 the flap servo failed. But I have to say that MotionRC has fantastic customer service and are always ready to help resolve any issues. Thank you!


  3. Get a Gyro From MotionRC

    Posted by Nicholas Kazantzidis on 7th Sep 2014

    The Build is easy and fun. The flight performance is great and a joy. Then there is the take off. Taking off is a not easy with this plane even if you are on a paved runway. I am sure for the more advanced pilots they can get her up without flipping her. For a newer more intermediate pilot, all you need to do is pick up the Eagle A3 Gyro for $22 and you will be extremely happy all around. There is even a video by Motion on YouTube demonstrating the difference. Trust me, it is a must to get the Gyro if you get this plane.


  4. She is a fighting bullet that wants victory!

    Posted by Josh Rickard on 6th Sep 2014

    Assembly while adding modifications provided by RC Informer, took some time, but are well worth it. The plane looks great and flies fantastic! Don't let her size fool you for speed and performance. One of the fastest and most powerful birds I have.

    Like everyone states, she is a mess taking off... well not really as long as you know how to manage rudder control. However if you do not have a rudder thumb, it will be a mess and take-off will be impossible. She does turn hard when taking off even with the most gentle throttle inputs. That's just the way these birds flew back in WWII.

    Holding her straight on take-off, she lifts with grace and beauty, however once those landing gears and flaps are up, she turns into a war killing machine and flies with angry authority! Vertical full power is almost endless, rolls are precision, full speed fly-by"s are amazing!
    Landing with flaps requires little air speed and she really moves slow. I really enjoy this bird. I am using a 2800Mah pack and around the 3:20 min mark. Landing with approx. 40% batt left. Using mid throttle most of the time.

    I have 2 complaints;
    1. The prop/cone is just a terd to balance. Its very large and awkward, but it is a large plane. =D
    2. One of the main landing gear retracts failed. It will not retract out anymore. She has had 8 flights and the typical brand new, trim-ins with the gears that is needed to be performed a few times, to verify operation and proper seating. Failure of the retract caused a nasty emergency landing my last flight. Sadly, that was her last flight. I haven't enough money to replace failed/damaged parts and the warranty expired a few weeks after it failed. (Go figure)

    If you are looking at this bird, know how to manage rudder control on take-off, and want simply a fun war bird, go click that "add to cart" button. This plane is well worth the coin spent to buy it.


  5. AMAZING DETAILED WARBIRD!

    Posted by Frank on 16th Aug 2014

    Just finished the build today and it was a GREAT experience! I took my time put some classic rock on and had a beer or two = ) Building it was half the fun. Do not rush it. Just relax and do it right the first time. Came together great. Only thing you have to do is make sure the motor is connected to the ESC and program the throttle control on the ESC. My motor would start at half throttle. Do this by plugging in the bat to the ESC through your reciever and having your throttle up to full on your transmitter. The esc will beep twice then quickly throw the throttle down to low then the esc will beep twice again confirming the throttle low position. Then you will good to go! All in all a beautiful plane. I feel like i now own a piece of history.


  6. 100 flights and is like new

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Jul 2014

    I previously wrote a review titled "Nice BF109 without the Lengthy Build". The plane now has around 100 flights on it. The BF109 is the FASTEST of all the FMS warbirds. Guys are buying after market motors and ESCs and trying 5 cell packs just to keep up with me. All I did was balance my prop and increase the space between the spinner and fuselage to 1/8 inch. The motor mount does twist and flex in flight yielding to torque and precession. The addition spacing allows for this without rubbing and throwing off the prop/spinner balance. Also, I did open a small inlet for motor cooling. And at about 75 flights my motor slung some of its windings out far enough to be sheered off by the stator. It still ran. And it was still fast. But I replaced it before failure because I do value this model. Its been great fun. If you have friends with other FMS warbird it is a ball to chase each other around. All of the FMS warbirds are good. But not all are fast. The Zeros and the Mustangs are slow. The BF109 and the FW190 are the fastest. The Mustang drivers have been upgrading their drive systems and are achieving good speed.


  7. Manual and parts

    Posted by Marco Camargos on 10th Jun 2014

    The manual version is green and not brown, this manual is old seems photocopying, remaining two pieces that do not know what for.

    Missing details in this manual as the range of motion commands.


  8. Wonderful Aircraft

    Posted by Chris H. on 30th Jan 2014

    Great to fly! Plenty of power and comes to life with a large MAH battery (3500 and up). Unforgiving on takeoff, especially on a grass field with an uneven surface. I recommend installing a rudder gyro and enjoy flying. Trust me, if the Germans could have placed a rudder gyro in their 109s they would have! Very durable airframe but, the landing gear shaft will bend on a hard landing. Don't be concerned, dive in and you will not regret it.


  9. A Legend of the Luftwaffe...

    Posted by Kevin Goodspeed on 7th Jan 2014

    Despite a few minor issues with the build (one of the flaps hinging was so thin it had ripped away; but an easy fix), this plane went together well. Take ultra care when gluing the metal bar that connects the two horizontal stabilizer halves. I would suggest mounting the wing, and so you have something to align against when positioning the tail while the glue sets.
    As with the original, this plane is squirrely on the ground, and it will take slow throttle acceleration with the proper amount of right rudder to get this bird off the ground in a somewhat realistic fashion. Otherwise it will be one of those rocket takeoffs yawing drastically to the left.
    Once in the air, this plane takes on a whole different personality. While moody and finicky on the ground, in the air it is a smooth and very maneuverable, and can perform most aerobatics without an effort. Flying inverted no worries.
    With the flaps deployed (they look too cool with the split levels), the plane slows down nicely, and landing is easy, until your wheels touch. Then it’s back to slow throttle manipulation and a good left thumb for rudder as needed.
    I love this plane.
    I bought it in the green and white camo, and after 5 flights took the decals off, and with some fine sanding and putty, and some great Acrylic paint, I now have the F-4 Trop as flown by Hans-Joachim Marseille.
    It’s a beautiful plane, and a part of aviation history. I have 7+ flights on it now.
    I hope FMS keeps improving details and functions (I'd like to see compression gear in all their warbirds), because it will get really fun!
    As for MotionRC, I have dealt with many hobby outlets, and these guys are the real deal. They provide great service. Orders leave their warehouse within 12 hours normally. If something is wrong, they right it. I won't shop anywhere else.
    Thanks FMS and MotionRC!!!!!

  10. wicked take-offs

    Posted by David Tsen on 12th Nov 2013

    I agree with the other reviewers that take-offs with this airplane is for the experienced flyer. Once the airplane is airborn, the right and down thrusts of the motor causes the plane to fly straight as an arrow, with almost no rudder coupling. Landing is a breeze with the flaps. The stock motor with stock propellers installed without modification generated 860 watts of power on 4s, 4000mAh 40c lipos. I must warn that a 2x1" air inlet must be opened up on the bottom of the fuselage cowl to allow for proper cooling of the motor (not in the instruction). I did have significant overheating of the motor, in which the generated heat transferred to the prop shaft and caused softening of the backplate of the spinner, necessitating replacement of the warped spinner backplate. Craftsmanship is excellent.


  11. Nice BF109 without a lengthy build

    Posted by Unknown on 27th Oct 2013

    Here is a lean, mean, light and tight 109 with no fuss. I can't get over it. It flys nice. I looks great. I'm using 4000mah packs which give great duration. Its a little PIOey on landing. I had to dial the flaps way back and slow down the elevator and even add 3/4oz. to the nose. But it lands easily now. And the tail wheel doesn't turn very much so you don't have a fighting chance in a crosswind once the tail wheel is on the ground. But, choose your days wisely and try to land into the wind and its just fine. Be the BAD guy to all those Mustangs at the field ! You are the Hun in the Sun !


  12. Great Power and really fun to fly!

    Posted by Will Haufe on 6th Oct 2013

    I was extremely satisfied with the quality and detail of my BF 109. Once in the air it handles very well. Plenty of power for climbs and combat rolls. Be aware that take offs are a little tricky. It suffers from left turning tendencies if you pull up before getting enough speed for the control surfaces to have their desired effect. Other than that, it is a real pleasure to fly and it is very well made. As will all pre-assembled planes, make sure you add a little extra glue to hold all of the servos in place and make sure all of the wires are securely fastened.

  15. BF 109 flight tested!

    Posted by Chris on 16th Mar 2013

    I have to thank the guys here at Motionrc for having great stellar service in communication and also shipping! I got this plane ordered last monday and by thurday it was at my house! I also had placed an order with the fruit stand the friday before and didnt get a confirmation of it being sent until I was mid way threw building this one up. I have inquired about several models and get responses in the hour, these guys care and appreciate their customers!

    The flight itself was very straight forward. This plane has seen some new design work which if you have owned an older FMS BF(probably the white color one) then you know how hard the little screws are to install into all the servo horns, which seemed much easier this time. The paint and everything on the plane was great and the build took about an hour. BUYER BEWARE, this plane acts very similar to the real one and that it requires a little more right rudder and longer roll out on take off so that you dont do cause a tip stall. This is probably one of FMS's most challenging warbirds for this exact reason. Some of FMS's other models like the hellcat and the zero are great starters for this size.

    When she is airborn, she flies like she is on rails and has great speed and sound when zipping by. I would not recommend this warbird if this is your first 1400mm sized FMS bird because of the previously mentioned tendencies. Lastly, you will need some throttle when coming in for landing(25-30%) and she will come in great. For any experienced big foamy pilot, this is a great plane that will challenge and reward you at the same time.
