New Giant Top Flite F6F Hellcat coming soon?
 
Has anyone seen or heard anything about a new Hellcat giant scale coming out by Top Flite in the near future?

Just went and looked at their website, no mention of it yet

Sometimes Top Flite and Great Planes new products appear on the Tower Hobbies website first under new items or Coming Soon

Check the replacement parts for TF giant planes. That's where I first got a hint. Mid-February.

Tower indicating late Feb for release.

Where are you seeing that? I assume we are talking ARF as I can't imagine we will ever see another warbird kit from TF. Would welcome a Hellcat ARF (or kit for that matter) from TF and would only add that it's about time! Hope the rumors are true.

TF Hellcat
 
tower had a parts listing earlier today but it has been removed. I did a bing search and some parts showed up at advantage hobby . No pics of anything

Saw this yesterday.

They did the same thing with the giant F4U,it appeared and disappeared and then it came out a month or so later.Creates a buzz.

An effective tactic, for sure. By February, some folks will be salivating......

Only if it's a kit and not an ARF

SWORDSN 01-04-2018 06:33 AM

I bet it's an ARF

Lifer 01-04-2018 06:37 AM

Of course it's an ARF. Why do kit builders post on ARF threads and condemn/complain about ARF products?

show871 01-04-2018 07:37 AM

a 3 piece wing would be icing on the cake!

FIRST, if you're referring to my post about being interested only if it's a kit, I DIDN'T CONDEMN OR COMPLAIN ABOUT IT POSSIBLY BEING AN ARF
SECOND, THE TERM ARF WASN'T USED UNTIL POST SIX, MEANING THE THREAD HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE PLANE BEING AN ARF OR KIT

Touchy much? The thread was started about a potential product that nobody was sure even existed, much less in exactly what form. And who condemned or complained about anything?

I'm already saving my pennies. If the Hellcat is at least as good as the rest of TF's giant scale ARF line up I will have one and it will get the full "bash" treatment. You can NEVER have too many Hellcats!

BarracudaHockey 01-04-2018 11:43 AM

Ohhh....i want!!!

tailskid 01-04-2018 02:41 PM

SWORDSN 01-05-2018 06:10 AM

wantitbad 01-05-2018 03:49 PM

Wild hair !
 
I have a WILD HAIR to buy me a TF F6F as soon as they are available !

Lifer 01-05-2018 04:08 PM

SWORDSN,

Did you get the standard or the long nose version of the WildHare Hellcat?

Corsair Bill 01-05-2018 04:12 PM

Soooooo looking forward the the F6F. Come on Top Flite!!!!

Katniss 01-06-2018 06:11 PM

Very interested to see what this one looks like. I have a 55cc gas motor needing a home.

wantitbad 01-06-2018 06:16 PM

Parts are still listed on www.advantagehobby.com looks like it might have Navigational Lights
