  1. Mods on the plane

    Posted by JUAN NAVARRO on 3rd Sep 2014

    Cowl came broken right from the box. It is made of a very thin plastic that breaks easily. I fix it with 5 minute epoxy and then reinforced the inside of the whole cowl with one layer of fiberglass. It came out more stronger and didn't affect balance (plane comes tail heavy, anyway) of the plane. The wings are held together with only two small screws. What I did was changed the fuselage's fix nut for a dowel glued with 5 min epoxy and placed two wood screws. Also, I reinforced them with duct tape on the underneath joints. Wings hold stronger now. I also covered the wings servos wire slots with 3m tape. Then, I changed that nonsense yellow paint that has underneath for light gray. I used Liquid Plastic from Harry's with an airbrush. It didn't harmed the foam. Now it looks like a real P40.. By the way, I had to put some lead on the front for proper balance...


  2. Good P-40 for the price-Retract upgrade available

    Posted by Wayne W on 31st Aug 2014

    I bought this plane from another place before Motion opened up and It flies good initially went with the advice of others as far as CG and found on maiden she would dive strongly but once trimmed it flew nicely. I believe it's prone to tip stall when going too slowly in a turn but have not really had trouble flying normally until my pack went low due to a bad cell and trying to turn back she got too slow and went into a spin. No major damage just prop, motor board and motor mount and back into the air.

    Retract upgrade is listed here under the Electronics tab under 1400mm Corsair -metal parts but haven't tried them.


  3. my aircraft arrived damaged by ups so ups returned it to motion

    Posted by chester waCHSMUTH on 3rd Jul 2014

    I've read other reviews on this aircraft and some of the other damage in delivery is the same as mine. They must have dropped it on the end of the box . The cowl was pushed onto the fuselage taking off the paint on the top. Also broke all the decals eye and mouth with teeth. If some one in the packaging dept. would but a small thin piece of wood against the prop shaft of the motor tight against the side of the box this wouldn't happen. I think FMS needs to look at this problem. So i'm still waiting,its been a week and still waiting. The folks a motion are really trying there best I,m sure. I can't wait to get it flighting,when it arrives.


  4. Nice start FMS, but needs work.

    Posted by Unknown on 17th May 2014

    First off Motion RC great place to do business with and when I order this place is always my preferred supplier. As for the plane mine is a receiver ready ARF. Great packaging, double boxed and the plane arrived just a day after ordering in perfect shape! Plane instruction manual is horrible to say the least! Adhesive white tape covered up the BlitzWorks printing on the manual. Good news is the plane is so simple to assemble without any instructions. Be carful with screw length as much of this information is missing. I used the incorrect screw in a couple of places. Wing to fuse fit is lousy. I did some sanding trying to get a better fit and eventually wound up just using black tape to cover the gap between fuse and wing. Looks ok but obvious. Wing tube would not fit into wings due to the glued used on wing construction blocked the wing tube holes. Took a long steel rod and lots of fishing to remove excess glue. Retracts and their problems are well documented. Plastic trunions and strut covers. Just not appropriate for a plane of this size and price range. One of my retracts had about a 5 degree toe in with no way of adjusting this out. Great news is Motion replaced the retract ASAP in their typical industry leading fashion! This is why I always come here first! I also modified the battery tray to get the battery far enough forward to achieve a better cg of 70-75mm instead of the 80-85 suggested in the instruction manual. Great information over on RC Groups on this plane. Should be able to maiden this week if the rain ever stops! Not trying to be negative with this review, just stating my findings. I knew about these issues when I purchased this plane and would purchase it again. FMS could make this plane the same high quality as the rest of their kits by making a few changes as noted above and I would gladly pay a few more dollars for these improvements. Don't let this few issues stop you from owning a great mid sized foam warbird though!


  5. 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.


  6. 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.


  7. 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...


  8. 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.


  9. #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!


  10. 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


  11. Follow up to Oct 30th post

    Posted by Unknown on 3rd Nov 2013

    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!


  12. 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.


  13. 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. .


  14. 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.


  15. 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
