Seagull has captured the look and history of the legendary razorback P-47 Thunderbolt in this fantastic semi-scale ARF, suitable for Glow, Gas, or Electric power. The airframe is conventional built balsa and plywood construction, yet a modern laser-cut design allows the airplane to be kept light. You will find that most of the work has been done for you. The pushrods are pre-made to the correct lengths, the motor mount has been fitted and the hinges are pre-installed and pinned for security. Includes retractable main landing gear and oleo shock absorbing gear struts. Also many deluxe scale details.

Nice Model - Seagull P47-G Thunderbolt ARF
Not a bad model for the most part but there are a few things I'm not crazy about. First the build is easy, the servo pockets already have the mounts glued in and the tail lines up good but you still need to measure. The wings are fairly simple until the landing gear, I didn't like the factory mains but flew the maiden with them locked down. They give a servo size to use but don't say what brand or kind so I reengineered my own using robart retracts and full size retract servos, I just made new servo mounts, Youtube search mreid08 and watch my videos on this. Next is the flaps, most brands set the servo in a way to use a Y harness but here you need a reversing harness or use a second channel, no problem if you have a radio that can do that, this was the first model I had to do this to. The rest is pretty good, it fly's very good, does all the basic stuff and glides forever. I'm using a Rimfire 80 with a 100 amp Castle ESC with a Castle BEC and 5000MAH 6 cell Turnigy spinning a APC 15/8 and it pulls it around at full throttle for 5 to 6 minutes and the pack is barely warm. Over all I would have given it 5 stars if I didn't need to reengineer the retracts and it is missing some scale details that Hanger 9 and Topflite have, but it does look good doing straffing runs 3 feet off the ground! Oh and I almost forgot, since I finished the landing gear, added the guns, and installed the antenna it has a whistle that sound pretty close to the sound or a supercharger! The guys at the field think it "pretty cool"
