This H-King version of this very impressive F-18 Super Hornet is manufactured in EPO foam and is beautifully finished in an authentic USAF color scheme with the decals pre-applied at the factory. The H-King F-18 has outstanding flight characteristics in its own right, it flies like it is on rails, but the pre-installed ORX 6-axis gyro takes this to another level. Pilots of all levels of experience will benefit from using the intermediate gyro setting, this really does improve stability and smoothes out the flight, especially in windy conditions. For beginners and low hours pilots, the flight stabilization system makes it even easier to fly. It utilizes a 32bit MCU for ultra-fast control response and has 3 settings, gyro off, gyro on, and training mode. In the training mode, the gyro gives full stability and also limits the amount of roll and pitch that can be used. In gyro-on mode, this gives slightly less aided stability and does not limit the roll or pitch that can be used, perfect for smooth, jet-style aerobatics. In gyro off mode, it is exactly that, no gyro at all.
The H-King F-18 is modeled on an airplane from MX 46 Squadron, the Marine Experimental Squadron that tests radar, targeting, and weapons systems. it even sports a pair of Sidewinder missiles on the wing tips. A low parts count means that assembly of the H-King F-18 Super Hornet is quick and easy. It comes mainly pre-built with the 50mm 12-bladed EDF, motor, ESC, and servos pre-installed. All you need to do is glue on the nose cone, plug in the two wings (these are held in place with strong magnets), assemble the tail parts, and install your chosen receiver and battery, that's it!
Unlike similar EDFs on the market that use a 3S battery, the H-King F-18 has been designed around a 4S set-up. This makes the H-King F-18 stand out from the crowd, it gives it the extra power to do those huge looping and vertical maneuvers that fast jets are renown for, it also looks fantastic when doing fast, low passes over the take-off strip. The flight characteristics of the F-18 do not stop with fast-flying only, the slow-speed handling is exceptional as well, with slow, high-alpha passes being a breeze to perform.
To summarize, the F-18 Super Hornet is quick and simple to build, it is tough, the stabilization system makes it very smooth and stable in all weather, and the 4S set-up gives it loads of power and speed. This super cool H-King F-18 Super Hornet is a must-have to add to your squadron of airplanes.
