Default TF FW190 A3 ARF

It was just posted that this plane will be available in August of this year. I went to the GP website and they do list the plane but give no specifications. Is there anyone who has additional information?

No swastika, wusses.

I wonder what retracts will work on it?

Keep an eye on the thread in the scale forum. I think the details will be showing up there soon.

Looks nice. Wish they had done a different color scheme then they did since the fun scale BH 70" already has it.

This what it's supposed to look like. I'm glad it's an Anton too.

Crap! Another plane I just have to have! I'm glad it's the 'A' model instead of the 'D'. I've always liked the A better. And it's already a lot better looking than the Easytiger one.

Can anyone tell me, is the hardware with the Top Flite ARFs of decent quality? I'm throwing away most of the hardware that came with my ESM Warhawk.

The hardware is excellent. I used it all on my TF-P47 GS RTC.

I have used most of the hardware on my TF planes as well.. a few substitutions here and there but never because of poor quality..

An RTC version would be great. This is a welcome addition. Hopefully they will produce them for a while and not quickly discontinue them like so many other German aircraft.

I hope that's just the intro price. Its a lot more than their other 80" war birds.

Hopefully this plane will do well, so that TF won't think twice about releasing more great axis planes in this size range. A zero perhaps?!?

I've owned several TopFlight planes through the years, all we're great flyers and looked quite "scale like". Some offerings out there could definitely take some notes from TF.

Tower has the FW 190 coming in mid August for 749.00. I taking a big guess that it is the same size as the already released giant scale arfs that have come out. 50-55cc size motor, about 86 inch span and about 20 lbs. I would also guess that Robart is coming out with a set of retracts. I may be all wrong about this, but that is what I came up with. Since mid August is not that far away, there should be more info coming soon if they plan on meeting their date or this whole thing may be be farther out. I just got the giant scale Corsair which looks pretty good for a arf.

I have the GS Corsair also. If I remember correctly it was released about 6 months later than the original release date. In my opinion it was well worth the wait. I'm sure the FW 190 will also be worth the wait. I'm hoping it has a 2 piece wing to make transporting it easier. I'll have to wait to see the specs to decide if i pull the trigger on this one.

Unless you have a view of this plane that I haven't seen then I can't see how you can tell if the spinner is wrong. I don't think that is the spinner you will get with the kit anyway because I doubt it will come with a three blade spinner.

It is the same color scheme as my Flyzone foamie. I notice the lack of the swastika also on all the German ARFs. I did do all the weathering to it as to not look like all the others. I think mine needs a big brother
