Further to my previous review - having real trouble with CG. Manual says balance point is 40-45 mm FORWARD of wing LE! Surely incorrect, must be BACK from LE? I find it impossible to balance the model at 45mm back without excessive weighting. With 2.5 oz lead stuffed in the radiator air intake the plane balances at 50-55mm. Also, it is my understanding that low wing models are balanced upside down, which is why the balance point should be marked on top as per instruction 1. Instruction 2, however, refers to marks on the BOTTOM of the wing. Why?
Typhoon to pre-flight
As usual, Motion RC ship quickly. The plane is well-packed, but comes out easily. I was surprised that absolutely no glue required, except for the guns. Watch these, they have just one position, otherwise they do not line up, and the manual says nothing about them. As with every aircraft, everything must be checked: throws, servo and engine operation, retracts, ground steering. Haven't flown it yet, but I'm getting excited.
JUST EXCELLENT FLYER I DID ADD 1 OUNCE OF LEAD TO NOSE FOR BALANCE IT FLIES GREAT........
FMS Typhoon 1100mm
I've been in and out of RC since the late 1970s only interrupted by the USAF and full scale aircraft ownership. Consequently, I haven't flown RC in about 8-10 years. I've always been a glow guy too. I got back into it about 2 months ago with an E-flite P-47 UMX. GREAT flying airplane and impressed with electric power. I wanted to step up to something bigger like I was used to flying and I've always loved warbirds. As the balsa guys know, building a good scale warbird is a lot of work and they often don't fly fantastically (usually weight/wing loading). Well anyway, I bought the FMS 1100mm Typhoon because I thought it was a cool and unusual subject to model. I'm new to "foamies" as well but I've been impressed with the detail and quality. It won't win any awards but for the money I think it looks FANTASTIC. It went together well. I ended up adding 2 oz. of weight to the nose as others have and it still seemed tail heavy according to the recommended balance point. It seemed fine doing the old school TLAR method however. As far as flying, WOW. I really think it's one of the nicest flying RC airplanes I've ever flown. Very stable, flies on rails, VERY good roll rate. Slows down great for easy landings. Looks great going by with the gear up. Overall, couldn't be happier. Would definitely buy another one.
FMS Hawker Typoon 1100 mm
I have had all balsa wood warbirds and need a warm up airplane. And this one is super fast enough in the air for 3 s 2200 mah you can also use 4s but a bit nose heavy!!! The only complaint about this is the esc predators 40 amps? And Servo!!! I did program the esc through my transmitter wasn't good enough Because throttle issue it will cut off about 25% I have replace the esc to turnigy 40 amps everything go smoothly. Then after my 4th flight the Servo strip during flight sad day for me. Glad and thx to motion RC had her replacement through horizon hobby now I've replace the Servo to hxt 900 all Servo. I can just imagine this birds fly and looks good in the air. Only complaint is over price should've lower as same Dynam birds , for cheaper electronics. Other than that 5 star.
Hawker Typhoon by FMS
Great little plane for the money. Very fast using a 3 cell battery. Does a great job of belly landing in the grass.
Second time around
I bought one of these when they first came out. One year, 50+ flights my favorite warbird hands down. Then after a few touch and goes first flight of the day, strong crosswind and not being awake it came down and ruined the fuselage and wing. Totally my fault. I bought a replacement set, transferred all the parts. Re-maidened it, and its just as good as the first plane. FMS even got the roundels on the wing in the right spot! Don't forget to add 1-2 oz of weight behind the spinner in the cowl. this is one great Typhoon!
