The Hawker Tempest was a British fighter aircraft used by the RAF (Royal Air Force) during the second world war. It was an improved version of its predecessor, the Typhoon, and many consider it to be one of the more powerful fighter aircrafts in the British fleet.
The Tempest's primary combat role was to carry out reconnaissance missions due to several factors. It had the ability to maintain high speeds at low to medium altitudes along with long range capability thanks to its 45 gallon drop tanks. The Tempest was also armed with four 20mm cannons had a cockpit that allowed great visibility to carry out ground attack during these missions.
Most of the operations were ground attack and they also were able to shoot down many of the V1 rockets fired by the Nazis. The Tempest also scored kills again the German ME262 jets using the "rat scramble" tactic where they would take advantage of ME262 jets approaching for landing, a vulnerable state, where flaps were down, speeds were slow and incapable of quick acceleration.
Airfield used their technical expertise with EPO foam to create a wonderful replica of the Tempest. Constructed of durable and resilient foam the 800mm tempest if a joy to fly.
This model requires a high power 820Kv Out-Runner brushless motor throwing a scale inspired three bladed propeller. Four 9 gram servos are recommended from the factory and will provide precise movement of surface controls. Airfield recommends a 20Amp brushless electronic speed controller supported by a 11.1v 1300mah lithium polymer battery. This power combo will deliver excitement from this old fighter aircraft.
This model is a kit version with no electronics installed. The kit version is best for pilots that have their own electronics they want to install or build a custom plane. You have the freedom of installing a higher power motor and esc along with your choice of servos.
