Freewing A- 10 Warthog Super Scale 80mm
The mean-looking A- 10 Warthog is a tough, ground-pounding attack aircraft loved by our troops and feared by the enemy. The Freewing A- 10 is
just as impressive as its full-size counterpart, and with a 67-inch span and powered by twin 80mm ducted fans, it has equally impressive flight
performance. Molded-in, nicely detailed EPO foam, the A- 10 has an accurate scale appearance and comes highly prefabricated. All wiring comes
factory installed, and it has functional navigation, position, strobe, and landing lights. It also comes with a complement of external weapons and
mounting pylons. Priced at $599.00, the A- 10 is a great plug-and-play jet that all jet jockeys would want to add to their RC hangar.
Evolution 7-Cylinder 77cc
Radial Glow Engine
With stunning looks and impressive sound, the Evolution
7-cylinder 77cc four-stroke radial glow engine delivers dependability and performance. Its cylinder head and crankcases are
produced from aircraft-grade alloys. This functional piece of
scale hardware features heavy-duty double-bearing crankshaft
support, billet aluminum pistons, hardened steel rings, hard-chromed and lapped cylinder bores, hardened-steel cams, and a
carburetor jet valve with a split opening for smooth acceleration.
This radial engine uses zero percent or low nitro (5–10%) fuel,
with low-oil content or only 5 to 7% oil/fuel ratio. Priced at
$1,299.99, this radial engine has a diameter of 9.1 inches and
has an output rating of 4.8hp. An optional Evolution exhaust
silencer ring is also available.
Robart Mfg. Scale Wheels and Tires
Every scale warbird needs good-looking landing gear, and the focal point
for all gear are the wheels and tires. Available in many popular sizes and
styles, you have a choice of molded plastic sport scale wheels or top-shelf
CNC-machined aluminum wheels with scale “Firestone” tires complete with
scale treads. When matched to the appropriate Robart retractable landing
gear, the combination makes a big difference in how your plane looks and
handles during landing. Prices range from $14.45 to $22.45 (plastic) and
$68.45 to $79.95 (aluminum). Replacement tires also available.
If you want to
really wake up
gun–equipped WW I
airplanes, try this system
of ultra-bright gun-flash lighting.
The system provides four flashing lights, with an adjustable flash rate
and intermix powered by a 9-volt battery. Easily mounted in the machine-gun muzzles, they’re controlled by a micro switch, which can be attached
to the same servo that controls a RAm machine gun-sound generator
(sold separately). Priced at $29.95, the flash kit puts the fun in scale.
