Avro Lancaster V3 from HobbyKing

Details

The V3 Lancaster is designed to be the most lightly loaded version of this classic model and therefore the best performing, it is a 'Lightweight, Heavy Bomber', that's hand launch-ready right out of the box. A differential thrust set-up for added yaw control and far more realistic flight performance is the key recommendation to get the very best out of the model, but she'll happily fly on throttle, elevator, and aileron control alone. The V3 Lancaster can now achieve up to 7 minutes flight time on a 1400mAh 3S, but still has the option of an electric retractable undercarriage for those that wish to have it. Weight over the earlier versions has been further saved by removing the opening bomb-bay door mechanism and servo, complete removal of the undercarriage, and removal of the tailwheel steering servo. This lighter weight makes hand launching a simple and trouble-free affair, slow, and realistic scale flight is greatly improved for those low, slow bombing passes, and less power is required meaning greater flight times.


The Lancaster was a British WWll heavy bomber that was designed and manufactured by the Avro Company in England. The Lancaster was powered by four Rolls-Royce Merlin engines and first saw service in 1942 and has become one of the most famous aircraft of WW2. It was at the core of RAF's Bomber commands strategic bombing offensive over Europe and it was the main aircraft for the night-time bombing campaigns that followed. The HobbyKing V3 has been finished in a new, authentic color scheme which depicts 619 Squadrons "Dumbo" PG-D aircraft that operated from RAF Strubby, Lincolnshire, during 1943-45.


The fully molded EPO foam "Plug N Fly" Lancaster V3 comes pre-painted with scale panel lines, the decals are factory applied, motors and ESC's are pre-wired and installed, the elevator and aileron servos are also pre-installed. Assembly is very straightforward, the canopy, gun turrets, and .303 machine guns need to be fitted, servo pushrods installed, and the tailplane needs gluing in place. Scale 3 blade propellers with spinners and molded cowlings finish off the Lancaster's stunning scale detail which makes this a practical, must-have model for any scale or warbird enthusiast. Battery and radio access is very easy through the bomb-bay doors and these are held closed while flying with some strong permanent magnets. The two-piece wing simply slides onto the wing joining spars and is held in place with two screws. However at 1320mm, the Lancaster is very easy to transport in one piece, so if you wish, the wing can be glued in place too for extra security.

Features:

  • Plug N Fly, just add receiver and flight battery
  • Thin plastic gear door 'skid plates' pre-installed for belly landing operations
  • Fully molded EPO airframe with scale panel lines
  • Detailed graphics and finish in authentic Bomber Command 619 Sqd "Dumbo" color scheme
  • Lightweight out of the box set-up for slow, scale, realistic flying
  • Intended for use with differential thrust set-up via modern radio transmitters for yaw control
  • Option for fitting electric servoless retracts
