Dynam Hawker Tempest 1250mm (49") Wingspan - PNP
Dynam Hawker Tempest 1250mm (49") Wingspan - PNP - DY8959PNP
The Hawker Tempest was a British fighter aircraft primarily used by the Royal Air Force (RAF) in the Second World War. The Tempest was an improved derivative of the Hawker Typhoon. It emerged as one of the most powerful fighters used during the war. Take to the skies with one of Dynam's latest offerings, the Hawker Tempest 1250mm PNP! Includes retracts. All that is needed is your 5 channel radio, 5 channel receiver and 4 Cell 14.8V 2200 mAh LiPo Battery, and she's ready for those pesky Axis bandits!
The manual calls for a CG 55mm to 60mm from the leading edge. We find 70mm to 75mm a much better CG. We put an Admiral 4S 2200 all the way forward and did not add any weight. The Tempest flew great in this configuration. We needed little to no elevator to fly inverted and the elevator surface was completely neutral on the ground.

Sounds great, but ...
The aircraft sounds great. But ALL Tempest Marks had a four-blade propeller. Why does the model have a three-blade? That prop configuration was present on the Typhoon— but even that ended when the improvement to performance of the four-blade became obvious. Could you at least make a four-blade accessory available, and report on how flight characteristics are affected?
Nice for the price!
Went together super easy and flys fantastic. Just forget about using the landing gear on anything except a super smooth surface. Retracts are set too far back and it flips over on takeoff and landing from the turf! I keep the retracts up and toss it and land it on the belly. Just wish Motion would come out with a bigger version,like one for 6s. That goes for the Typhoon as well. my favorite warbird!
Main gear to far back but with full up elevator on the ground it was ok. Fun to fly.
Nice product, build was easy, I would use a 3s 3000 and add weight to the nose, I did have a cracked spinner but Matt from customer support will be sending a replacement, very good service and plan on another purchase!
Another great plane
This is my third plane from Motion RC and, my second Dynam. The plane arrive very quickly and in perfect condition. The build was simple( thanks for the build video) and went together quickly. Using the recommended battery all the way forward. The plane balanced perfectly with no additional weights needed. Maiden flight was a breeze though (watch the flight video) a bit of up elevator is needed to keep from nose over. Just prepare to ease off the elevator as soon as this wheels leave the ground. Otherwise the plane leaps into a steep climb. Flight was easy though the plane is a bit lighter on the sticks than I am used to. All in all a great plane once again. Thanks Motion RC you have my business locked in.
Easy build, can't wait to fly
Very easy build, assisted by MotionRC build video. No issues at all with plane as shipped. Will maiden once Spring hits. Only concern I have is with Dynam retracts due to issues I had with my A10 where they would refuse to function as documented by many folks here and in RCgroups. For now I am just going to leave them down. I did some mild carving to move 4 cell 2650 forward to get CG right. Can't wait to fly, seem like it will have tons of power.
Great model for the price
for this price point this model is excellent and amazing. required a little more time to assemble than other brands but I enjoy building so I really didn't mind. the only thing I found sub-par was the exhaust pieces I felt they could have molded a better exhaust but for 159 and the only thing off is the exhaust tips, not bad. I can buy a set that looks better for a few bucks and problem solved.
Nice plane but with some issues
The plane arrived quickly and in perfect condition thanks to MotionRC. Let me start off by stating that I have not yet flown this plane so my comments are related directly to the build. I'm a fan of Dynam planes, owning the Tempest, Hurricane, Waco Tigermoth and Albatros. However, this is the first Dynam plane that hasn't lived up to my expectations. Overall, it looks great. The paint and decals are very nice and once completed, it makes for an impressive looking plane. An intermediate builder should have no issues with this plane but here are some annoying things that I encountered. I was lucky to receive a plane with all areas tightly glued together. No body gaps and smooth seams. The first issue I encountered was trying to get a tight fit while gluing the wings together. No matter how I trimmed and fitted the wings, I just could not get a nice smooth joint. I ended up doing the best I could, then filled in the gaps with lightweight spackle. I custom mixed a color to match and airbrushed the bottom to hide the work I had done. Besides that, the rest of the build was super easy. The second issue I ran into was that one of the retracts wouldn't work and the other one was working intermittently. I think this is related to temperature since the plane was stored in my basement and it gets pretty cool down there. Once in a warmer environment, the intermittent retract worked fine. The dead one never ended up working. MotionRC's excellent customer service had a new retract in the mail the day after contacting them. I did find an aftermarket retract that is a direct drop in fit and work flawlessly, so they have been installed in lieu of the Dynam retracts. It's a bit of pain because once the wings are glued together it's tough to get the retract lead out of the wing. I ended up cutting the lead and re-soldering close to the new retract to best hide the wiring. The third issue I ran into was the motor stuttering at low speeds. I have run into this before with Dynam ESC's and was always able to correct it with resetting the ESC's to the factory defaults as per the videos on Motion's site. This time, no matter what I did, I could not get rid of the slow speed stutter without swapping out the ESC. With the weather in the Northeast turning ****, I most likely won't be flying this anytime soon but I'm hoping that the flight characteristics make up for some of the shortcomings I encountered. Again, a great looking plane but just needs some tweaks to be a great plane overall.
