Dynam F6F Hellcat V2 1270mm (50") Wingspan - PNP
Dynam F6F Hellcat V2 1270mm (50") Wingspan - PNP - DY8958PNP
This is the new and improved version (V2) of the Dynam F6F Hellcat. This new version now includes a Tomcat Skylord 40 Amp ESC.
The Grumman F6F Hellcat was a carrier-based fighter aircraft designed to replace the earlier F4F Wildcat in United States Navy (USN) service. The Hellcat competed with the faster Vought F4U Corsair for use as a carrier based fighter. However, the Corsair had significant issues with carrier landings which the Hellcat did not, allowing the Hellcat to become the Navy's dominant fighter in the second part of World War II, a position the Hellcat did not relinquish. The Corsair instead was primarily deployed to great effect in land-based use by the U.S. Marine Corps. We are happy to bring the Dynam F6F to customers bringing yet more warbirds from a manufacturer known for finding that rare blend of economy and quality.

The foam ARF paint quality was good but overall the the quality was poor; fuselage halves had a 1/8 gape in the glue joint, the canopy frame was warped and did not fit flush to the fuselage, the split flaps were not separated and bound because of the uneven hinge line, the bottom air scoop was not fully glued in and the plastic canopy bubble was cut very uneven. Sent a e-mail to Motion, got a reply, " Dynam kits are cheap and all the canopy frames are warped". Guess it is Motion's way of saying you buy an inexpensiveness foamie, cheap is what you get.
I bought this last Feb. It went together fine with really no issues other than the flaps. They were not scored correctly. It doesn't look perfect, but they are very functional. The navigation lights are also very bright unlike some of the reviews I have read. I maidened her this morning and she flew like a dream. I really enjoy the graceful and slow flight characteristics that she displays. I was wary of the problems reported with the landing gear. I made sure they were liberally lubed and they seem to work well. I did notice on the second flight that one of the gear was slightly bent. I will have to take care of that before I take her up again. For the money, this was a good buy and she does everything that she promises. What more can you ask?
There’s a reason it’s out of stock. Easy to put together. Looks great, and fly’s great. This is my first warbird. I was a little nervous as I had only flown trainers, but the plane is a nice fusion between performance and control. I’m adding the flaps for the realism. Love it! Five Stars!
Hellcat V2 ?
This is going to be a hard review, I have looked at this plane for 2 years, I love the looks of this one, BUT, what I did not like was the flaps, (and well, the known bad gear). When MotionRC Introduced the new V2 version, NOW With Flap Servos installed, And fully functional flaps, And New and Improved landing gear ,And the new Skylord ESC. I thought OK, Dynam has got this Really Improved Now. Well I buy one, Great looking plane, and Yes it has the flap servos installed. and the Tomcat Skylord 40 amp ESC, As far as New and Improved retracts, I don't know where the Improvement is. My left retract stuck on retracting,( found it was the rotate pin was binding on a retract hold down screw, Ground it off good to go.). MY Main concern was with the flaps. Yes, I got servos, BUT , If you used the flap servos it would bend and ***** the wing,( The bend line was still the old V1 bend line, which was not right, you would ruin the wing when activating the flaps) At this point I contacted the Motion Reps, And was told that Sorry, Dynam won't change that problem, And do the best you can to get the flaps to work, Which I did, Just score them offset from the topside, and deal with it... Motion Now just shows the AD with nothing more then the NEW V2 Version with the Tomcat Skylord ESC, Nothing about the new flap servos, or landing gear, ( hmm I wonder what happened) I have Now maidened this plane on 5/ 27 /18 on a grass field, using a Admiral 3600 4s battery. The flight was perfect, No trim needed, was really a great plane to fly, I really like this plane, Sorry Dynam had to try to decieve the dealers and buyers on the improvements.
FLYS SO GOOD. smoooth, glides amazing, flap install was easy and works great, faster then i thought too!!!! retracts are cheap but holding up so far after some mods. paint isnt that good, build was easy and fun.
This is my 3rd Dynam plane and I have to say the best of the bunch. The build was quick and easy and the Maiden was successful and fun to fly. I had to add weight to the cowl to get the CG right with a 4s 2650 battery and had to put in some down elevator to get her to fly smooth. After that it was a delight in the air and landing was a breeze. I'm putting flaps on soon and I know that will really make landings much easier. The only down side with this plane is the paint. It's thin and will scratch with very little contact. Hint! Trim your finger nails before touching the plane. Great job Dynam and thanks Motion RC.
Loved the details, my father
Loved the details, my father flew one during the war. Think of him while flying.
This plane flies straight and true right out of the box, my maiden flight need hardly any trim. I love it
