The engineers at Durafly have come out with another easy to fly hand launcher, the Durafly Brewster F2A Buffalo. Prior to World War II the US Navy was looking for a monoplane to fly off their aircraft carriers and the Buffalo was the winner. The Durafly Buffalo comes in two stylish color schemes. The easy to see US Navy pre-war colors and the more “navelised”, early WWII US Navy colors.
As it turned out the Buffalo was no match for the Japanese Zero and Oscars but did perform well for the Finnish Air Force against the Soviets.
This is a superbly finished model made from tough EPO foam and molded plastic fittings. Stickers are pre-applied and it also comes with a realist scale pilot. The motor and ESC are already fitted. There is some building to do but everything fits easily together. As with other Durafly products all control surfaces have ball links for more precise flying.
The Brewster Buffalo starts flying with an easy hand launch. With the power to burn it will easily perform loops and rolls with a few Immelmann’s thrown in. Some slow passes will easily show off the mid-set monoplane wings and stubby fuselage design that makes for straightforward belly landings.
