Charmingly dubbed the “Butcher Bird,” the Focke-Wulf 190 was the Luftwaffe’s most potent piston-engine fighter of WWII. With its very authentic two-tone grey paint scheme and realistic scale decals, this fully aerobatic Charge-and-Fly? reproduction (complete with the notorious exhaust residue that was very commonly found on the full-scale fighters) Focke-Wulf is an RC dream. Getting airborne is about as simple as can be, just attach the wing and tail, connect the battery to the charger, and in as little as 40 minutes, you’re flying. As with all RCs it’s a very good idea to ensure that the first charge is a good and long one (a good few hours) as it’ll give you much more flying time later on – after which you can charge it up in just 40 minutes. Once in the air, you can choose between two flight modes – A or B – with just the flip of a transmitter switch. Mode “A” limits the amount of control surface travel for beginner pilots so manoeuvres are smooth and manageable. Mode “B” grants an experienced pilot maximum control surface movement for high-energy manoeuvres, such as loops, victory rolls, Cuban-8’s, and more.
