The Curtiss P-40 Warhawk was an American single-engined, single-seat, all-metal fighter and ground-attack aircraft that first flew in 1938.

The P-40 design was a modification of the previous Curtiss P-36 Hawk which reduced development time and enabled a rapid entry into production and operational service. The Warhawk was used by most Allied powers during World War II, and remained in frontline service until the end of the war. It was the third most-produced American fighter, after the P-51 and P-47; by November 1944, when production of the P-40 ceased, 13,738 had been built

Steve

This is a .60 size fighter, and they are hard to find. Everything is sheeted, then covered in a nicely printed film. The effect is a very sharp finish. Bulkheads and root ribs are plywood, and the build is sturdy. This is a real step up from the Chinese ARFs. Split flaps, and a really nice cockpit and pilot, and $200 price, make it a really good deal. More at Tucson Radio Control Club web site. Bring back these .60 size fighters!

Gorgeous Plane!

This plane is gorgeous when put together properly! With the 5 cell set up you point this plane in a direction and it gets there fast! I have zero complaints with the flight characteristics, and you can also go with a slightly bigger mah if you wanted... this plane can handle the small additional weight. I had one mishap with the plane (my own fault) and contacted James at JB_Hobbies and he was more than helpful.
The looks alone made me want this model!
