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

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

  1. 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.


  2. 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!!!!!

  3. 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.


  4. 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 !


  5. 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.


  6. BEST Price and FASTest Shipp..UNsurpassed WEB/STORE layout !

  8. 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.


  9. Awesome Warbird!

    Posted by Sc4dr on 11th Mar 2013

    Let me start buy saying how great this Messerschmitt looks when it's flying towards you! The huge spinner on the front, and the large Luftwaffe markings make this plane stand out from the rest.

    Flight characteristics are equally as impressive, with no bad tendencies to speak of. The prop, and spinner that came with it balanced ver well, and in flight you can barely hear it. This thing flys silky smooth, with plenty of power! FMS did their homework on this one.

    The only negative that I see so far is the landing gear is a tad sloppy where the metal trunnions meet the plastic gear leg. And I also had a issue with one of the gears not functioning. I unplugged the flight battery, and gave it a few seconds, then plugged it in, and it worked..... Weird. Hopefully this does not happen to me in flight!

    Those issues were still not enough for me to give it less than 5 stars. This plane is going to become the first one I grab when I go to the field!

    Thanks to FMS, and the guys at Motion for providing a great product. Motion continues to send me planes within 2-3 working days, along with the best customer service in the industry!
