This is the new version 2 of the FMS 750mm FW-190. The V2 features better scale details, a faster motor, and a step up in quality when comparing 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.

I HAVE A FLEET OF THE FMS 800MM PLANES,NOT A BEGINNERS PLANE BUT ONCE BALANCED AND 3S POWER THESE PLANES FLY GREAT,I HAVE AND LIKE A VARIETY OF PLANES BUT FOR $99.00 AND A AR400 RECEIVER VERY TOUGH TO BEAT.ALL OF MINE BOUGHT THROUGH MOTION RC,CUSTOMER SERVICE IS EVERYTHING IN THIS HOBBY AND MOTION RC IS TOP NOTCH,ALMOST EVERYTHING I PURCHASE IS FROM MOTION RC
Read the earlier reviews that mentioned tip stalling on takeoff. I attempted the maiden flight with the suggested 7.4 v battery. The aircraft barely flew. All axis were negatively affected... very unstable. I jumped to a 11.1(1100mah) battery with a larger ECS that fit perfectly. The aircraft flew fanatasic. The roll rate is excellant. The landing are flat without any stall break at flare. The landing gear are the best I've seen for grass. Get the plane and make these revisions.
After adding a little weight to the nose of the plane it flies like a dream. The plane just needed to be a little nose heavy to fly right. Fast and stable now. It would be nice if the planes could come properly balanced from the factory. Any way all and all a great looking and flying plane.
I made sure the plane was balanced before flying or attempt to fly. All the plane wants to do is role! I have the T28 which flys great all the time every time. This thing is junk, the props break if you look at them funny. Again will not hand launch or take off without hard roles straight into the ground.
My experience with this airplane seems to have been quite different from other reviewers in that it is not fun to fly. It was very hard to fly and land on the included landing gear and if you fly it as a belly slider you will most likely will break the very brittle propeller upon landing. It is a very nice looking airplane but mine has been relegated to just static display only.
maiden flight today was a bit scary. when you set up the throws make sure you adjust endpoint down and use at least 30% expo and she will fly just like the big ones. large wheels make it able to take off and land on grass. be sure to get extra props they dont handle nose overs well
I had a heart breaking radio failure and lost my 190 . Of all the 800 series fms planes, this flies better than the corsair and T-28! I put the (8x6) 2-blade prop on (which is a measureable improvement in performance), 1300 admiral batt. and this plane comes up on two wheels, and slowly lifts into the air. The forward rake on the wheels means no nose overs. The angle of them creates a softening effect for the best landings and roll outs. I love this plane. Everyone should keep one in the box for back up....... And two more to fly. It flies like a war bird, so no slow turns to landing. Slow approaches (with some power) produce a predictable and smooth touch down. Get a little experience with tail draggers and war birds and you will love this plane
This is a great plane if you like the FMS 800mm series. A real bargain. The quality is very good and the modeling details are exceptional. A word of warning--this FW-190 is not, not, NOT for beginners (even intermediate pilots will find her challenging). She flies very hot and is extremely responsive to the point of being twitchy. You can only fly her in two speeds, fast or faster. You will not be able to cruise her at a leisurely rate because she will stall fast and hard, and stall recovery is difficult unless you have a lot of attitude (which is impossible because she's so small you can't really go too high). I find that the minute this plane leaves the ground, the pucker factor grips me and I have to focus 100% to not lose control. Landings are sphincter crunching experiences unless you have a lot of smooth runway. Also, make sure your CG is 100% dialed in because she is very sensitive to CG. Slightly nose heavy she will still fly, but being tail heavy will make her uncontrollable. I find that I had to put about 1 oz. of weight in the nose to balance it properly. Putting a bigger battery is impossible because the compartment won't allow it. Although I love this plane and its quality, I wish that it was just a bit easier to fly and land.
I bought this to replace an original 190 (from banana) that had become a go-to plane. Very predictable and good looking, except for the ****, weak landing gear. This new version seems a little "tougher-skinned" and has a great looking, stronger landing gear. I break-in all motors and put a 2 blade, 8x6 prop on all the 800 series planes. It really perks them up and the motor is quiet and smooth. Terrific plane and great vender. Thanks Motion............ Check CG, trim carefully, and it's a great little flyer.
Go there instead?
