This F4F-4 Wildcat Is The Best Sounding Rc We’ve Heard In A While
Those Mini Radials Are Impressive.
Not sure about you guys, but we just recently started digging these Rc planes. We’ll admit; we haven’t really been around them for that long (we’ve been warbird fans for forever though) but this is a really neat hobby. Expensive, but neat.
If you think about it, most of us will probably never get to experience flight in our favorite warbirds. That’s just life. We weren’t born royal and we have to work for a living. This hobby, however, can bring you a bit closer to those dreams.
Here’s the info we found about this Rc warbird:
- Scale: 1/4
- Wingspan: 9 feet 4 inches
- Weight: 53 pounds
Take this guy in the video for example. He built a massive F4F Wildcat and he flies it whenever he can. It’s not the same thing of course, but at least you can show your love for your favorite plane. That’s more than most of us can say.
According to Eric M. “Winkle” Brown, British test pilot, “I would still assess the Wildcat as the outstanding naval fighter of the early years of World War II … I can vouch as a matter of personal experience, this Grumman fighter was one of the finest shipboard aeroplanes ever created.”
As for that wonderfully sounding engine, he put in a 250cc Moki 5 cylinder radial. It’s a true work of art and as you’ll be able to hear, sounds fantastic.
