This SBK was a blast to build. Very easy to construct, the FT P-40 was straight forward in design. Looking to mod this build a bit with retracts(adding in the wheel wells on the wings), guns, exhaust stacks. I think it looks better with a clear canopy.

The build on this was amazing, like foam board origami everything just fell into place (it didn’t hurt that I watched the assembly video like 100 times) the videos on this were fun and easy to follow, the design is true to the original and performs flawlessly, I highly recommend any of your kits, so economical and fun to build!

Flite Test P-40 Electric Airplane Kit (1066mm)
This was my first flite test foam board build and it was truly a blast. I mean it was fun - like looking forward to getting home each nite to work on it fun. After building it I added a paint job, some home printed decals (Flying Tigers theme) and then took it to the field to fly this weekend. I'm a beginner-early intermediate flyer and the damn thing flew great from the start. Awesome, indeed and lots of jealous club members looking on wondering "what in the world." A bit of trim and it was "dream like". I'm moving on to the Corsair next and then might try the P-38. Also, the video instructions were awesome (hint: watch each step completely BEFORE trying it so you know where you're aiming to get). Also a few times I had to email support with a few questions and they responded in less than 24 hours. I'm not sure if this will work in the review, but here's a link to a short 2minute video capturing my experience:

Flite Test P-40 Electric Airplane Kit (1066mm)
I completed the speedbuild kit on the P-40 from flight test and it flew wonderfully with a CG 1/2" behind the leading edge. That didn't make sense to me so I moved it back another inch and almost crashed it being tail heavy. I moved it back to 1/2" and enjoyed many wonderful flights.

I flew it many times with great success but eventually crashed it and built a new one from scratch.
The tiled plans are not the same size as the speedbuild. They are larger. I also modified the wing and tail to be more like nerdnick's wings and tails. The result was a tail heavy bird that doesn't fly quite right. I'm adding a lot of ballast to the nose, inside the chin of the P-40. I'll see how it flys now and report later. I can't seem to get enough weight in the nose to have a CG 1/2" back from the leading edge.

Wish me luck...

The P40 was my second build, the first being the Simple Cub. Though slightly more complex the build was very easy. The new forming skill will come in handy for later builds. The best part is how it flies! Out of the box with little sub trim it flew perfectly. It almost flies out of your hand on a throw launch. I adjusted my low rates to be 50pct throw and 30 pct expo....plenty of authority.
Tattu 1800 all the way forward.

Build this as soon as you can!

On to the new Corsair.

Plane went together very easily, the only issue I had was that some of the laser cuts went a little bit too deep which cause some of the fold points in the wings and such to come apart. Very easily reinforced with some tape though. Overall this kit saves a ton of time.

I'm back in the hobby after 25 years and very much enjoyed building the simple scout first and now the P40. I have not flew the P40 yet but the simple scout flies great. I wish I could have added a photo, it turned out to be a beauty. Good luck to all and don't sweat the small stuff.

Buenas noches! Estoy muy entusiasmado por empezar a construir el P-40!
Alguien me puede decir en qué peso aproximado queda sin electrónica?
Saludos!!! y Gracias!
Colocar los servos de dirección y profundidad, más cerca del ala, ayudará a que no quede tan pesado de cola???

I got the DuBro spinner that was recommended for this build and it doesn't fit on the new power pack C shafts.

The metal rods for the landing gear are incredibly difficult to bend.
