    Item Description:

    This is an expertly built P-40 L Wark based on modified Jerry Bates P-40 Planes. The plane is incredibly detailed and is balsa/ply construction with fiberglass finish. Builder is Elmer Mider From Romeoville, IL.
    This is built from modified Jerry Bates plans and has never been in competition a full Picture Book and Scale details are provided with this add.

    Plane has 6 flights on it, all flawless, however, this is a warbird not a hangar 9 sport plane so you need to keep the power up


    Created with flickr slideshow.

    The model is setup as follows:
    - 7 x HS-5645MG digitals on All Flying Surfaces (7 servos) servos are programmed and matched.
    - 1 x Hitec Digital for throttle
    - 1 x Futaba Standard for choke
    - 1 x Futaba standard for bomb drop
    - 2 x HS-81 Micro for Cowl Flaps
    - 1 x JR standard servo for air tank
    - Air Power 40 AMP Power Dual Switch Redundant Distribution System with Dual regulators (currently set to 6 volts)
    - 1 x large robart air tank
    - Ultra Precision Air valve
    - Air Power Air valve
    - Sierra Giant Landing Gear (mains) with large Scale size wheels
    - Century Jet Retractable landing gear with custom made strut and scale width opening gear doors.
    - Dual Gens Ace 1800 Mah Lipos for mains, 1400 Mah JR Nimh for Ignition
    - Rc-xcel Optikill
    - Tam jets Failsafe on Landing gear (will deploy gear if pressure falls below 50 PSI
    - Working Cowl Flaps
    - Working Drop Tank

    Plane requires a minimum of 8 Channels to fly, you will need 10 channels if you want functioning Bomb drop and cowl flaps (these aren't required obviously)

    Grass fields are no problem for the huge 6.5 wheels, retract suspension should be tightened up if taking off from concrete runways.

    Finish Details:
    - Painted in Model Master Colors (I will include the color codes for an extra $10.00 I can include 4 small bottles of paint that is used on the Plane)
    - Top Flight Luster Coat Flat Clear
    - Very Nice and Detailed Scale Weathering, not too much but what is done is very realistic
    - Completely Hidden Cowl Screws
    - Completely hidden exhaust setup
    - All Servos are and linkages are done with a completely hidden linkage system.
    - Made in Balsa/Plywood construction fiber-glassed though out: wings, fuse, cowl.
    - Expert detailing on many panels through the aircraft including all access panels, rivets, scale fabric like tail surfaces and antenna wires
    - Fully Detailed Cockpit with sliding canopy, manually driven (but could be modified to work with a servo/air rams
    - Hidden hinges / Internally hinged no visible hinges any where on the plane, looks great.
    - Includes 3 Blade Static Prop

    100 Wingspan
    83 Length
    30-32 Lbs

    Motor and Power:
    - DA85 Engine with Slimline Wrap aground muffler w/custom Exhaust extensions so that they exhaust comes out of the cowl and is completely hidden.
    - 800cc Tank with New Lines
    - Ziroli 6.5 P-40 Spinner cut and painted
    - Static 3 blade spinner is included.

    Overall probably the nicest P-40L you'll ever see, it will require some maintenance as its probably time to replace the airlines and maybe stiffen up the aileron linkages other than that she is ready to burn holes in the sky, the motor is still breaking in so it will need another 3-5 gallons before it starts making a lot of power. I will include the PVC stand for you at no charge.


    Asking $4,350.00 RTF without RX
    Shipping and Crating; $250.00 via freight carrier to shipping terminal will be shipped in custom made plywood create (Very Strong and won't move about).
