Tech Notice



Expertly covered with Top Flite MonoKote

In early 1942, the American Volunteer Group's success over China did wonders for U.S. morale following Pearl Harbor. The Flying Tigers and their shark-mouthed P-40 warhawks destroyed nearly 300 enemy aircraft while losing only 21 of their own. This sport-scale P-40 ARF does the WWII legend proud – with a high-quality design and the versatility to please every low-wing pilot.

P-40 WARHAWK in Action
Warbird models of this size are typically foam or plastic, but the P-40 Warhawk is all-wood. Its construction quality and performance are superb – equal to any sport-scale model in the popular Great Planes lineup!

The P-40 Warhawk comes covered in a trim scheme that captures the camouflage colors of the WWII Allied fighter. Decals shown are included and die-cut for easy application.

For an outstanding brushless electric power system, outfit the P-40 with a 1450kV outrunner brushless motor, 45A ESC, and 3200mAh LiPo battery. Laser-cut parts for installing a complete brushless electric power system are supplied. Accessing electronics for maintenance is as simple as removing the wing.
