Ok plane for its price
Nice plane, quality ok for its price... Flies well, no surprises in behaviour. It’s a pity that flaps and exhausts are not scale... Although in the air it looks nice. Had to add 90 grams of wheight in the nose to have CG in range with Admiral 4s 2200 mAh. During first flight left landing gear failed to come down and had to belly land. Landing gear strut came loose, had to fix it by changing the screws in the electric retract, works well now. Flaps do help slowing the plane down but even without flaps landings are easy. Have around 10 flights, I’m happy how it performs and enjoy flying it. It’s a keeper. Was my first motion rc experience. Loved it, ordered during lunch break on Monday, delivered on Tuesday (next day) in the morning.
Very good looking warbird alot better looking than I expected,the foam is the toughest I have seen,flies nice very stable with a 28004s ,had to replace rudder servo little 9g servo not up to rudder and tailwheelwould not center put in a 12g servo works fine now ,new tomcat motor is smooth plenty of power I give it 5 stars even with servo change, great plane for the money as usual great customer service and fast shipping ,got to love motion rc
I don't know if it's just me and mine but my Hurricane was way out of CG. The suggested battery was nowhere near enough to keep the nose down. I added almost two pounds in the nose to make it barely into limits. Even then, it still wanted to keep the nose up in flight. I know its a fighter and they're supposed unstable but this guy seemed all over the place. The gear malfunctioned before my first flight, only one wheel would come back down after going up. Had that replaced and it worked great, until I flew it. Brought the other gear up and belly landed in the grass so it wasn't too terrible. All in all, I'd love to keep her flying, the Hurricane is my favorite warbird of them all and this model looks amazing, but it's just not worth it.
Quick Landing Gear Fix
The landing gear struts on Dynam warbirds are little better than coat hangar wire. I used Hangar 9 40 size landing gear struts with the coil, drilled out the trunnions to 5/32nds and installed them in the Hurricane. We fly off grass and with the shock absorbing struts have experienced no problems. When the gear is retracted the missing gear covers are not an issue. With a little effort the gear doors could be attached if desired.
How to correct tip stall which makes this airplane difficult to land.
I was having great difficulty when slowing and flaring to touch down. When attempting to flare the airplane would roll quickly, usually to the left and if you weren't really quick with rudder and aileron you would catch a wing tip and flip over. With no shock absorbing coils in the landing gear struts a bent strut was usually the result. I solved the problem by raising both ailerons 1/16th of an inch thus inducing some washout due the ailerons being at the wing tips. With 15% exponential on the elevator I can now make smooth slow gentle landings as with my Dynam Spitfire and P-51.
Nice plane but only fair quality. Easy quick build.
Absolutely love this bird. It has quickly become my favorite. Lands a bit hot but I plan to install flaps which should slow it down a little. Flies like it's on rails.
SPECTACULAR Plane..Spectacular CRASH..but get one!
Hello Pilots! I'm writing a glowing recommendation to BUY and FLY this beautiful plane! But this will also hopefully build on what has been written before and help guide you in your experience with this wonderful kit. THE LOOK: I mean this is IT for a Hurricane. It's GORGEOUS. Love the scale, accurate prop, paint, and decaling. (So the pilot's head is a bit big, but I bet the heads of the young kids first flying it swelled up a bit too). ASSEMBLY: Be *VERY* careful of the Vertical fin and Rudder when joining to the tail/horizontal stabilizer! Mine had a weakened joint, ( promptly replaced by Motion RC, thanks guys) and the rudder came off in my hands as soon as I attempted fitting. Don't be shy- ask for a second set of hands to make sure you get the proper even, distributed leverage to *CAREFULLY* join the vertical fin/rudder to the tail. My tail wheel's shaft (and ending alignment) was also bent. I would suggest putting it in a Vice if available, and carefully bending it to the correct alignment before you join it to the fuselage. SERVOs / BINDING: I have a DX6 w/Spektrum Receiver, and noted that after radio setup, I had to *reverse* the aileron and elevator movements to turn right/left and climb/dive! Don't take that for granted, be sure to check this on the bench carefully as every radio setup and model is different. ESC SETUP: Buried in the instruction text (and there isn't that much to help with the general build) is the technique to get your ESC motor to talk to your battery- follow it and connect the motor and battery with the throttle position noted. TAKE OFF: And here we go. Remember this is a WARBIRD. Advance the throttle slowly with corrective right right gently, and away she goes. You won't need to gather speed first like many tail-draggers. She'll LEAP off the pavement in a near 3-point take-off. If you try to dip the nose first too much, you'll get a prop-strike. FLIGHT: Wow, Wow, WOW! So graceful in the air- what a *LIGHT* touch on the controls! You won't need much aileron to roll and turn, or elevator to move up or down. Not too much THROTTLE either- I flew my patterns in really no more than 1/3rd throttle and she was plenty fast. Be sure to set your servo travel to a HI/LO switch setting to help this sensitivity. AND KABOOM!: Don't make my mistake on landing approach ( a classic..sigh.) FLY HER DOWN-PITCH UP-SPEED UP-3 POINT LANDING. Though the wings are cut for it, this model DOES NOT have flaps (this was an engineering mistake in my opinion) so you'll need to keep your speed up- GEAR=DRAG the gear on this model is sturdy and wonderful- and produces a tremendous amount of drag on the airframe. GEAR UP AND GO AROUND is the rule. I flew mine down, went around, slowed her down...and there was the Sun..KABOOM a STALL AND SPIN. Don't spin in, Mates! GEAR UP- SPEED UP- GO AROUND...but most importantly, ENJOY THIS WONDERFUL AIRPLANE! (Yes I'll be buying another soon..I have lots of..great condition parts)
Apart from the lame build instructions, the plane is really nice.. Landing gear seems smooth, lots of power, great attention to detail. Look forward to maiden flight although the kids love it hanging in their room right now. I am a Hurricane lover, this is the most loved by pilots and instrumental plane in the allies victory of WW2. MotionRC put the order together and delivered to Vancouver Island in Canada in breakneck speed. Very happy with my purchase and ease of dealings with MotionRC and they will have my business again.
