  1. Very lucky

    Posted by Billy on 8th Apr 2014

    Have not flew it yet but the assemble was the worst of all my 10 war birds. pics in manuel didnt help any eather. didnt dry fit first my bad. though a $250 plane would go together with no problems. All most lost the wings. My son help me save my bobo. It is the best purple brown and gray paint on a warbird ugly. bottom is cream ugly to. Im airbrushing gray on bottom and od green and brown on top. It looks great now. Im redoing CG after reading reviews hope it flys good.


  2. So close

    Posted by Norman Gregg on 31st Mar 2014

    With a little more care you could have a nice plane. My cowl was shoved into the nose & it removed some paint & the decal just feel off. Now I have to get a new set of decals which you are out off. The balance & push rods could have been true, just close would have been good. Have pics of the damage.


  3. Home Run !

    Posted by Guillermo A. Garcia on 18th Mar 2014

    You guys knock this one right out of the ball park. It' my best looking plane which stands out from my fourteen plane collection of WWII fighters and bombers. Keep up the great job and I'll just keep on buying. Straight from McAllen,Tx. I do Thank You...


  4. Great looking plane

    Posted by Rich on 6th Mar 2014

    I have always loved the P-40, and this FMS offering is very nice with flap and retracts all included. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was that the gap that was cut out between the flaps and wing was overly wide. MRC was very quick in shipping and although I have not built or flown the plane yet, all the contents looked to be in good shape.


  5. #1 online rc store

    Posted by Michael Walker on 4th Mar 2014

    My p40 arrived by ups double-boxed, and within 4 days. I will never buy from any other online store!


  6. Great Plane

    Posted by Scott Rinehart on 12th Nov 2013

    I love this new addition to my fleet it surprised me how light this plane is in comparison with my other 1400FMS models. The biggest thing and most important that i can tell you in this review is CG DO NOT GO WITH THE MANUAL RECOMMENDATIONS you need to balance this plane between 70-75mm and it will fly beautiful as always from FMS this is a well built plane and the customer service from MotionRC is by far the best you will get with any company on the web this is a must buy for your warbird collection

    Plan flew great moving the CG to 70 - 75 mm and balancing with gear up. This coincides closely with the 25% of MAC method used by some in the forums. Pitch problems are gone.

    Do NOT use the instruction manual of 85 mm to CG! Gear up or not.
    Do NOT add any weight. Balance with your favorite battery.

    Follow these tips and you will love this plane!


  8. FMS P40

    Posted by Unknown on 30th Oct 2013

    Overall, great plane! Looks awesome flying. Almost too much power (if there is such a thing). Awesome.

    The biggest con is the CG, the first flight was scary as @#$%@% as it is way tail heavy when balanced at the 85 mm noted in the doc. Searching around the internet, I'm not the first to experience this with this plane. I CG'd it gear up, gear down, plane up and upside down, lots of combinations which all were very close to the 85 mm mark (battery in of course). Definitely use 20% expo and about 60 - 70% dual rate as the elevator is very effective. It flew better on the second flight but still way too tight on pitch. Was flying at 50% to be safe for the first two trimming flights, but bet it would fly fine at 30 - 40% due to the power and the stability it shows. Will play with it more this weekend.

    The kit came well packed. Instructions were poor but it is a fairly easy build overall. The only complaint here is the control horn screws are too small! Come on FMS, this plane is $239.99, I'd bet most are willing to pay $1 - $2 more for 2 - 3 more mm on these screws to hold the control horns. Very annoying. The wings mount to the fuselage with two small screws. I put an extra piece of clear duct tape between the fuselage and the wings just in case. It just looks weak.

    Other than the CG issue (I'll try to fix that this weekend), this plane floats like a dream. It should have tip stalled or spun out 10 times on that first flight, but didn't. The first two landings were pretty hard, but on the wheels, due to the pitch sensitive nature. Another con is the landing gear as it is fixed, there is no suspension (or I couldn't flex it anyway). It would make this size plane even nicer if it had Freewing type suspension on the gear.

    I recommend this plane for intermediate skilled flyers and builders. Not for beginners due to the CG issue and pitch sensitive nature out of the box. Hope I can correct this weekend.

    MotionRC has extremely fast shipping. They also have the spare parts which that alone keeps me coming back here.

    MotionRC ... Just a recommendation to improve your site ... please create build videos for your planes? Love to know what you recommend the CG and how you got there. We'd like your tips (due to your experience, as it relates to these planes). Yeah, we may get lucky and find one or two on utube or other sites, but we want YOUR opinion.


  9. Well balance, great looking.

    Posted by armortec500 on 29th Oct 2013

    This plane is a magic. Flies great, no stall issues. The detail is very scale like and flies like in a rail. Smooth on landing but you have to come down with at least 1/4 power. Never cut the throttle. Good enough speed and well Balance on flight.

    Motion RC is the best. .


  10. Excellent Stable Flyer

    Posted by Terry Bohl on 1st Oct 2013

    The first flight - always a little nervous - went better than expected with minimal trimming required. By flight 3 confidence had built, and this plane felt like I had flown it many more times. It has also been a great attention-getter with lots of compliments. As has been my experience with Motion RC service has been excellent, and I love their carrying spare parts for all their models. That's something I find rare but extremely important.


  11. Great Plane

    Posted by John Rabuse on 15th Sep 2013

    Did not buy it from motion but I have it Im very happy with motion so ill suggest it I have obtained parts from motion

    Mind you its an older FMS version in my case I just cemented the wings on as to deal with the wing mount screw issue

    I fly mine with 3000-5000 mah bats

    the retracts are very strong and doors are exceptional

    this is a great plane mine has 300 flights on it and the one before 500 flights before I gave it to another club member its still going strong


  12. Motion R/C is THE BEST

    Posted by Philip Vasquez on 7th Aug 2013

    I just want to say a BIG THANK YOU for such a wonderful place to shop.First of all, I ordered the 1400mm P-40 camo on a Sunday night thinking I'll hopefully have it buy the next weekend, NOPE, got it Tuesday morning and flying it that afternoon.That's 1 1/2 days.I had a messed up cowl and called and explained my situation hoping to get a replacement cowl, NOPE, I not only received a new cowl, but stickers as well to make it like new again.What touched me was Motion R/C took the time to write Thank You on the bottom of both inventory list..I've never had that kind of personal attention from a company in my life..These guys are GREAT. While on the phone, I didn't feel like a customer, but someone they knew for years, like we were friends for a while..I'm definitely shopping here from now on..Thank You Motion R/C..THANK YOU :)


  13. Lovely model, but with issues

    Posted by Ricky Smith on 23rd Jul 2013

    First off, the guys at Motion are top notch, I got the kit within 48 hours of placing the order. Kit has amazing detail, and is super easy to put together. The ease of assembly is important because the instructions are awful. I had to go on RC groups to find out about 2 screws in the wings that had to be tightened. they are just outboard of the landing gear. getting the CG right is troublesome as the groups have it listed all over the place. I did get it at the recommended 85mm by going up to a 4S 2800 Battery. on my check flight almost crashed the plane. It wanted to nose dive constantly and there was no adjusting the elevator to fix it. I found that the 17 gram elevator servo was the problem.
