Ultra-Micro De Haviland
Mosquito MkVl BNF
£???.?? (RRP)

This seldom seen model is presented in an ultra micro version aimed primarily at the electric flyer looking for a scale warbird model to fly.

Whist designed for indoor use the model is capable of being flown in calmer outdoor conditions with little wind, however, wherever you choose to fly the Mosquito you can be sure of one thing; it will prove a show stopper and will be bound to generate interest when it is flown.

Constructed from lightweight durable foam it’s finished in an excellent scale outline and colour scheme based on a 21 Squadron, 140 Wing, 2nd Group, 2nd TAF (Tactical Air Force) RAF aircraft as flown by Sqn.Ldr.A.F.'Tony' Carlisle DFC, Flt.Lt.N.J.'Rex' Inrgam (RNZAF).

The model features full 4-Channel control with elevator, throttle, rudder, and aileron for precise flying and manoeuvrability. On board electronics consist of pre-installed twin 8.5mm coreless brushed motors with contra-rotating 3-blade propellers, a pre- installed Spektrum AR6400T DSM receiver/Dual ESC unit and two Spektrum AS2000L aileron servos.

Dummy machine guns in the nose and the distinctive twin-leg undercarriage (removable) with scale looking wheel hubs and tyres add to the overall scale look of the model whilst the steerable tailwheel aids ground handling on smooth surfaces.

For added convenience between flights, the removable magnetic nose hatch makes swapping flight batteries quick and easy.

This Bind-N-Fly model comes out of the box pre-assembled and ready to take flight in the time it takes to charge your 250 mAh battery and bind it to your favourite DSM2 transmitter.

Ultra-Micro De Haviland
Mosquito MkVl BNF

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 it 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. Its unique design and speed with a crew of two was for the time an astonishing 425 mph at 30,300 feet, 380mph at 17,000ft with a ceiling of 36,000feet along with 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 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 Squadron's R.A.F.

In April 1943 the first De Havilland Mosquito saw service in the Far East and in 1944 the Mosquito was used by Coastal Command in its strike wings.
Bomber Commands offensive against Germany saw many Mosquitos used as photo Reconnaissance aircraft, Fighter Escorts, and Path Finders for larger bomber formations.

Production of the Mosquito did not end until 1950, and it stayed in service with the Royal Air Force until 1955 and also saw action with the Israeli Air Force during the 1956 Suez Crisis.

A total of 7781 Mosquito's were built and today there are approximately 30 (non-flying) surviving examples around the world with several under restoration.
