Just prior to the outbreak of American involvement in World War II, the U.S. Navy, having heard reports of a superb fighter produced by the Japanese, realized that the current Navy fighters, the F4F Wildcat and the F2A Buffalo, were close to, if not already, obsolete. Grumman Aircraft won a contract to produce a fighter that would match the performance of the fighters produced by the Axis powers. The F6F was the result. By January 1943 the Navy was receiving a steady supply of Hellcats, quickly proving the design while pressing the airplanes into service fighting the many sea battles of the Pacific. Although unable the match the Zero?s turning abilities, the Hellcat pilots learned to use the airplane?s greater horsepower, speed, and firepower to win battles.
Dynam RC is proud to bring you a scale EPO foam recreation of the F6F Hellcat. It features a high performance 500KV brushless motor and 40amp brushless electronic speed controller. It also comes equipped with a totally redesigned electrical retract system allowing the pilot to tuck the landing system out of the way and reduce drag. The Dynam Hellcat is flap ready with cutout for flap servos positioned to make installation of flaps a breeze.
The Dynam F6F Hellcat is a great looker in the air and shows excellent flight characteristics at both high and low speed. It is made from super durable EPO foam and while deliver hours upon hours of enjoyable flight time.
