FMS P-40B Warhawk Flying Tiger 1400mm (55") Wingspan - PNP
FMS P-40B Warhawk Flying Tiger 1400mm (55") Wingspan - PNP - FMS081P
Finally, the 1400mm FMS P-40 is back but this time it has been completely redesigned from the ground up. This new 1400mm P40 has absolutely nothing in common with the old version. The "Flying Tigers" livery for this 1400mm warbird were taken from the popular FMS 980mm P-40B Warhawk. All the stops were pulled out for this plane. The 1400mm P-40 shares the same ESC found in the other FMS 1400mm warbirds but this P-40B has a more optimized motor and prop. Additionally, a brand new retract was developed specifically for this plane. 17g metal gear servos are prodominent throughout the plane for maximum durability.
The Flying Tigers consisted of three fighter squadrons with about 30 aircraft each. It trained in Burma before the American entry into World War II with the mission of defending China against Japanese forces. The group of volunteers were officially members of the Chinese Air Force. The Tigers' shark-faced fighters remain among the most recognizable of any individual combat aircraft and combat unit of World War II, and they demonstrated innovative tactical victories when the news in the U.S. was filled with little more than stories of defeat at the hands of the Japanese forces.
The group first saw combat on 20 December 1941, 12 days after Pearl Harbor. It achieved notable success during the lowest period of the war for U.S. and Allied Forces, giving hope to Americans that they would eventually succeed against the Japanese. They are officially credited with 296 enemy aircraft destroyed.If you are a fan of Military aircraft, you’ll understand the glorious history of the P-40B Flying Tiger. The Flying Tiger played an important role and had a brilliant record in China during WWII.
To pay homage to this classic warbird, FMS has revived it again after numerous studies, testing and redesign. In the real world battleground P-40s were not as devastating as the P-51. However in the RC model world, the FMS P-40 shows extraordinary talents. The stable flying performance will rival any other warbird. The new high-magnification foam greatly reduces the flying weight. The scale appearance allows it to be a great static model as well as an excellent flyer.

- flying plane
Best retracts it's pretty quick for a four cell took my tray out added 4 ounces to nose modified canopy so battery just drops in before that I used two admiral 3000s for insane flight times but heavy landings now I fly 1 3000 for 4 minute flight times and a 40 seconds left to land It will tip if too slow Transports easy Needs up elevator with flaps nose down tendency No nose overs even with weight It's the plane I use when I bring a big edf to **** time between speed runs I can only fit two planes in car Great on grass no complaints
Love this plane
I got this plane about a month ago, the weather up here in New Jersey has been lousy but I did manage to get out and fly it five times so far and what a fantastic flying plane this is, I don't even need to use flaps it slows down beautifully without stalling or any bad tendencies. So if you're thinking about pulling the trigger on this plane you should definitely do it!!! Also I would like to thank the RC Informer for his great videos on this plane and his insight as well!!!
This plane looks beautiful. It went together very easily.
First off, cant say enough about how well this plane was packaged. From there, it went together in about 45 minutes and I was testing everything on the bench. The detail is absolutely unbelievable to say the least. Retracts are robust and operate smoothly. Took her out for the maiden the next day, she took off in about 8 feet, 3 clicks right aileron and she was perfect. Flew her for about 4 minutes using a Pulse 3700 45C battery, landed without flaps (forgot I had them), she glided right in and extremely smooth on the touch down. Checked the battery, had 55% left!, not bad. Have had several flights since, without incident, not a speed demon by any means, tried a loop and she just flopped over, just not enough power I guess, but a lot of fun to fly. I've been using a 4 sell, might try a 5 sell next. Highly recommend this plane, loads of detail and fun.
Trust the reviews
I have put about a dozen flights on this plane so far and all I can say is WOW!. It is great looker and performer. Excellent slow flight capabilities along with high speed and stability. The large scale wheels make for easy takeoff/landing on rougher fields. and retracts perform flawlessly. This plane always draws attention wherever i fly it on the ground or in the air. It is easy to assemble and most of the decals already applied. Takes offs are performed at half power and landings with full flaps and 1/4 or less throttle. Using a 3300mah 4S and I get 7 to 10 minutes of flight. Cons - 1. Although the packaging is sufficient to prevent any damage it does not protect all the painted surfaces. My plane had a few areas where simple rubbing/friction caused some minor paint scuffing. Not the end of the world but worth mentioning. 2. CG in the manual is incorrect.
3 piece prop
Really wish fms would stop using this ****** 3 piece prop set-up. It's pure junk . Please go back to using a solid prop again. If it wasn't for the props I would give their planes better ratings.
P-40 With a few issues
Once again motion rc just stuns me to there 3 day delivery free shipping deal. Anyway back to the plane here is a list on negative and positives. Positives - Assembly was super easy. - Wing screws are machine screws, and where the screws screw in are metal threads same for the elevator. -Scale accessories such as guns or decals are installed for you from the factory -The features like screwd in servos and compressible oleo struts are awsome -Flies as good as it looks -The hinges are super cool - Wing fairings have plastic edges so they don't get bunched up -The removable battery tray is a great feature Negatives - packaging is kinda poor no plastic bags over main foam parts and there were some **** blemishes - Wheels had a lot of play on the axles,put tape on the axles to reduce the play -One of the black box multi connectors had a cold solder joint and the right wing was inoperative, but motion rc took care of the problem - Spinner was misaligned on the fuselage pretty bad -(Very minor) gun sight was loose and i gave it a drop of glue and that took care of it. I would go with motion rc's recommendation on the CG of 70mm its were i have mine and it flies great. Here is a video on my model https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vo_pEtz23NI. and a full review here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mmm1wL_PDoQ&t=3s overall I do think the plane is worth the money and looks great in the air.
