FMS 750mm (29.5") BF109 Version 2 - Receiver Ready - FMS048
This is the new version 2 of the FMS 750mm BF109. The V2 features better scale details, a faster motor, and a step up in quality when compared to the the V1 plane. We love the extra speed and vertical generated by the new 1700kv motor. There is plenty of power for loops, rolls, and immelman turns. The landing gear has been improved over the V1 plane in both strength and detail. Please note while this plane is a blast to fly for intermediate and above pilots, this is not recommended for beginners.

Crazy torque roll and OK performance on 2s
The left torque roll on this aircraft is INSANE. Use extreme caution on take-off because if you goose it, you will break a prop. Ease into the throttle and keep rudder and aileron to the right and you will take off fairly level. Props on this aircraft are VERY easy to break and they get expensive after a while. I'm probably on my 6th prop by now. Flight is fair using the recommended 2s 1300 mah battery and it may perform better on something higher. As it stands, it flies nice and scale but aerobatics are a chore to pull off. You'll be lucky to loop this thing, even when using high rate and elevator throw.
Great detail great price very durable
i have several fms planes because they are very durable and fly fine without any modification. the bf-109 is not one of the easier to fly of the 800mm series. I recommend you have some experience before flying this one, also the bf-109 has a narrow landing gear by design, so you need to be easy on the tail wheel/rudder on take off.
The plane fly's nice. Not for beginners tho!
fms BF109 rocks
this plane flys great on two/three cell I fly with 30% expo both hi/low rate and it tracks great would have gave it a 5 but I had to do a little work on the foam to get the three cell to fit not bad I also have the fw109 and it flys just as good but get extra props there not bad but thay will break on hard nose overs
Really Fun once you get over the ****
My experience has been similar to others in the first attempts to fly this plane. I would consider myself on the low side of intermediate in regards to my piloting skills. To give you an idea, I own and fly without issues, a parkzone corsair, e-flight P47 thunderbolt, gws tiger moth, umx corsair and a few others. Then this plane came along. I purchased it because it looks cool. I tried to take off on grass and crashed a few times due to the torque or me not giving it enough speed. I was able to fly by hand launching about 50% of the time. This was the most challenging plane I've had so far and have broken the prop about 6 times and have replaced three spinners This was all while trying to "learn" how to handle this plane. Some of my issues may have been poor CG because you end up moving things around to try and fit all the electronics in this plane (see tips below). So make sure you check your CG! I finally removed the landing gear and it now hand launches every time. The removal of the gear got my CG correct for the way I squeezed everything into this plane and added a Gyro (I really don't think the Gyro is necessary but it has been part of the equation from almost the beginning so I can't comment on how different it would be without the gyro other than to say my Parkzone does not have a gyro OR as3x and it flys just as well.) It's true there is very little room in the fuselage to fit everything but the following worked for me to the point where I even added the gyro with more than enough room. (http://www.motionrc.com/eagle-a3-l-3-axis-airplane-gyro/): 1. Put the receiver down in the fuse towards the tail (basically as far as the leads will allow it to go .. about 3 inches down the fuse) 2. Push the esc all the way into the slot at the bottom of the fuse under where the battery sits. Its a bit tight at first but the entire esc will fit in there. 3. This leaves the entire "normal" electronics compartment open for a gyro. The lid always snaps tight without issue. I'm also using a 2s 1200mah lipo. I have to say the challenge was well worth it. This plane is a blast to fly. It cuts through the sky like a knife and is an adrenaline rush. It handles very well but you don't need much movement on the sticks. It's like the wild bronco in my hangar and I mean that in a good way! I get a smile every time I fly it. The other day I went to the field and there were 16 MPH winds with 24MPH gusts. This was the only plane I considered flying because it cuts like a knife through the sky. It surprisingly handled the wind pretty well and it was a blast! It is also true that seating the prop in the spinner is difficult (remember I replaced a lot of props). The key here is you have to back off and not tighten the prop screw too tight. if you do the prop alignment won't let the spinner line up correctly. This plane is also incredibly tough. I had some mean crashes but nothing some glue couldn't fix and the plane still looks great. Anyway, I now fly it without issue very consistently and I enjoy it so much that I gave it 4 stars even though it was challenging getting to this point. I would purchase this plane again!
*Review Revision* Build: After building an 80mm F-86, this seemed like a cakewalk. Not really much to assemble. However there were two issues: 1. The canopy simply would not fit in place with the lipo battery installed. That's with the recommended 1300mah 2s. I had to make some foam modifications to make it fit. I shaved off the bottom edge and lopped off the protruding piece and added an extra magnet. 2. The spinner is difficult to install on the prop. It takes a bit of a fight to get it to eventually fit. Flight: I was using my spektrum dx6 system and a 1300mah battery. Tried taking it off the runway and that didn't work out too good. The torque roll story is true and made it **** to the left real bad. With my rudder kicked all the way to the right, I gave it a hand toss and it finally took off. This was after a few crashes into the grass with only minor scrapes to the prop blades. This is one tough little plane! After some trimming, the plane flew beautifully on a 2s but I did have to keep it on full power most off the time. I don't think it would have managed a loop unless I really dove into one. Landing also is a bit tricky and takes a lot of throttle and elevator management. That said, This plane does not glide very well. All in all, this is a wonderful flying warbird. Just takes a few tweaks to get it airborne. Check out my video under name handle sirlordwhitman to see the maiden flight.

Disappointed in ill fitting parts
The 750 mm span Bf 109 V2 that I got had three significant issues that created more work that kind of negate the reason to buy an ARF. 1. Spinner does not fit properly over the prop. 2. Unevenly aligned aileron servo control arms, and unable to loosen to screws to reposition or remove servos without major surgery on the wing. 3. Wing hold screws too long, requiring either cutting them down or adding spacers.
Not for low intermediate flyer
Looks terrific and the set up even with the instruction went okay. First maiden this plane torque so much to the left that broke the prop. Waited for the props to arrive. Now the 2nd time, Using more rudder to maintain the takeoff still torque to the left. No damage so tried 3rd time . This time hand launch with 3/4 throttle and the plane still torque to the left. Broke prop and broke wing in half. Using epoxy to fix and fly another day. This has been a journey for me with the 109, so I wont give up. Its not the most forgiving plane that I have flown, so If you are a beginner move on. This will test your skills. I don't blame the product but the flyer.
