Scale details and fantastic flight characteristics come together beautifully in this exciting, park flyer recreation of Britain’s premier twin-engine warbird. It’s the perfect first twin-motor park flyer for any intermediate to expert skill level pilot.
Nothing Evil about This Twin
Despite their differences in subject matter and design, ParkZone park flyers have always shared a common trait – smooth, predictable flight characteristics that will put any sport pilot at ease. The ParkZone aircraft development team has gone to great lengths to make sure its first twin-motor park flyer is no exception. To that end, they’ve mounted the motors in such a way that their counter-rotating props and thrust angles smooth out the effects of abrupt power changes. This makes the model as fun and relaxing to fly as any single-motor ParkZone warbird.
Two Motors. One Battery.
The aircraft is equipped with two 370-size, 1300Kv brushless motors, both of which are powered by a single 3S 2000-2200mAh Li-Po pack (sold separately). Even with the additional weight of the optional flap servos and electric retracts (sold separately), this economical power system delivers more than enough performance for sport aerobatics and high-speed strafing runs. And flight times are just as long as any single-motor ParkZone warbird.
Optional Flaps and Retracts
The model gives you the option of adding functional flaps and retracts. All you need are two ParkZone SV-80 servos for the flaps (PKZ1081) and a set of E-flite 10-15 Size Main Electric Retracts (EFLG100). The model has been designed with the addition of these components in mind, so installation is easy.
Numerous Scale Details
The model comes with the trim scheme and markings of a Mosquito Mk VI that flew with 464 Squadron of the Royal Australian Air Force. The invasion stripes partially cover the squadron code letters on the fuselage, just as they did on the full-scale aircraft. Other details include machine guns in the nose, cannon ports in the chin, engine exhausts and a painted pilot figure.
The De Havilland Mosquito
One of the most remarkable combat aircraft of World War II was the British De Havilland Mosquito. Powered by two Rolls-Royce Merlin engines and constructed mainly from bonded plywood this unique aircraft was nicknamed the Wooden Wonder or Timber Terror, but was perhaps better known simply as the “Mossie”.
At the time of its development the Mosquito was faster than most of the contemporary fighter planes of the day and it made its first flight on 25th November 1940.
With a crew of two its unique design achieved incredible performance. Speed was for the time an astonishing 425 mph at 30,300 feet, 380mph at 17,000ft and with a ceiling of 36,000 the aircraft had a maximum range 3,500 miles.
The Mosquito was armed with four 20mm Hispano cannon in the belly and four .303 inch Browning machine guns in its nose. Coastal strike aircraft had eight 3 inch Rockets under the wings and one 57mm shell gun in its belly.
In early 1942, a modified version (mark II) operated as a night fighter with 157 and 23 Squadrons R.A.F. and in April 1943 the first De Havilland Mosquito saw service in the Far East. 1944 also saw the Mosquito used by Coastal Command in its strike wings.
Bomber Command’s offensive against Germany saw many Mosquitos used as photoreconnaissance aircraft, fighter escorts, and pathfinders for larger bomber formations.
Scale vents in the leading edge of the wings deliver cooling airflow to the ESCs keeeping everything cool and efficient.The model features an abundance of scale details, not least the terrific scale outline and accurate WW2 grey/green colour scheme.
The model features fixed landing gear that can be removed and replaced with functional E-flite 10-15 size retracts. (EFLG100) sold seperately.
Hardware for adding functional flaps is included. All that’s needed is a pair of ParkZone SV80 servos (PKZ1081) Moulded servo pockets in the wing make instillation simple.
