Manufactured by FMS Model, the biggest foam model plane manufacturer in China, the quality is guaranteed
The FMS F-18 Fighter is modeled after the F/A-18 Hornet, which fulfilled both fighter and attack aircraft duties. The first prototype of the Hornet was introduced on November 18,1978. It entered service to the US Navy and Marine Corps in 1981. The Hornet has proven itself time and time again during Desert Storm, Operation Southern Watch and the Desert Fox strikes against Iraq in December of 1998. During Operation Iraqi Freedom, Hornets dominated the aerial campaign by carrying out strikes, close air support, refueling, anti-shipping, and forward air control missions. True to the original, this F-18 EDF Jet has everything: high-speed flying, real jet style aerobatics and has one of the finest low-speed characteristics of any ducted fan airplane ever. Larger than most EDFs and pushers, the F-18 has a huge presence in the sky, just like the real Hornets. The F-18 Fighter is made with high-quality foam which gives it unparalleled durability.Specification: Wingspan:710mm/28in Overall Length: 960mm/37.8in Flying Weight:Around 660g Motor Size:2627-KV5100 ESC: 50A Servo:9g Servo x 5 Radio: 4 Channel(Not Included) CG (center of gravity): 88mm (From Leading Edge) Ducted Fan Size: 64mm 5 blade Recommended Battery:Li-Po 11.1V 2200 mAh 25C(Not Included) Aileron: Yes Elevator: Yes Rudder: Yes Flaps: No Retracts: No Approx.
