Default Kyosho P-40 Warhawk " Trixie "


The Kyosho P-40 Trixie
Kyosho now produces this famous fighter with a precise factory assembled balsa and light ply main fuselage, tail feathers and wings. All surfaces are expertly covered with a strong lightweight covering. The covering material is applied in layers to replicate the unique camouflage pattern with decals already applied for you. Noteworthy is the rounded shape of the fuselage and the concave rear cockpit windows. The attention to detail carries through to the fiberglass cowl and is painted to match the fuselage colors.
Features

Lightweight Construction - Lightweight balsa construction of the fuselage is mostly factory-assembled.
MasterCoat™ - Pre-covered in realistic camouflage printed film on Kyosho's MasterCote™ covering. This is not your run of the mill "wall paper" covering that ends up looking like an old man when you leave your airplane in the sun.
Retracts - Pre-installed with retractable undercarriage and linkages. 90 Degree rotating.
Split Flaps - Features the signature split flaps of the original that produce fascinating flight control. You will only need one servo for this set up.
2-3 Blade Spinner - Includes accurate recreation of the uniquely shaped spinner. Suitable for 2-blade or 3-blade propellers.
Total Control - Rudder connected tailwheel provides control for scale taxiing across the airfield.
Awesome Detail - Pre-painted FRP cowling recreates the subtle curves in fine detail.
EP Ready - True EP ready airplane not just a converted GP fuselage, this plane will perform above and beyond your expectations. The battery trey and servo tray are pre-installed.
Decals - The kit will include decals for both the Trixie nose art as well as the famous "Tiger" teeth, allowing you to choose between the two.
Part #: 10862B EP version
Part #: 11862B GP version

Tim, that's a fine looking model, but I think there must be a misprint in the specs at the bottom of the page: 422mm span converts to about 16.3 inches, and 2800g weight would be about 6.16 lbs.! That would be a flying brick!! Even with 600 to 800W, it probably wouldn't fly any further than you could throw it. Please update the specs, I'm very interested, as a model of this plane at around 1.5M would have me drooling and reaching for my credit card :-)
Brad.

Default Battery hatch???????

Tim,

Does this model come with a constructed BATTERY HATCH somewhere in the top frontal area of the FUSE?

Also, as the other gentleman has indicated, weight is critical in my book so, I would appreciate an updated WEIGHT figure for this model.

Should you know the EMPTY weight of the model, that would be even better as I will fly it ELECTRIC.

Thanks!!!
Carlos

Tim,

Nevermind, I found the KYOSHO WEB SITE "USA" and I am surprised that you did not include the link, assuming you are a representative of KYOSHO USA

http://www.kyoshoamerica.com/airplan...part_num=10862

The Technical Specifications are at:
http://www.kyoshoamerica.com/airplan...view=techspecs

With regard to the Wing Span, I do believe they LEFT OUT the Number "1" in front of the 422mm figure and so, it should be 1,422mm which comes out to 55.98 inch wing span!!!

My search has answered my own question about the "Power System BATTERY HATCH" and this picture shows!

Perhaps next time include the KYOSHO USA link!

I have the Kyosho FW-190 ep and if the P-40 is anything like the Focke Wulf it will be one of the better flying Large Warbirds on the market. Kyosho quality is the very best and from the photo's it looks like the P-40 will be up to the same standards. I'm going to the AMA Expo Friday and can't wait to see it.

With those retracts is it safe to say that a Corsair is coming someday in the future?

Ha!

Hey Tim,

Thanks so much for that e-mail reply to me about the weigh-in of this wonderful looking model!!

I will wait either via e-mail "or" one of these threads to see your weigh-in of the EMPTY airframe weight or whatever weight you can give us!

Thanks again and happy assembly!
Carlos

Tim, you can even put your link in your signature if you want to, we ask that vendors be up front with members and they not spam the forums.

Thank you for the hospitality and heads up Don, there are other forums out there that are not as nice with their rules. One of them will not allow me to put kyosho under my screen name...

I saw the new Kyosho P-40 at the AMA show and like the other fighter planes they sell it made with the same quality if not a little better than the others. One of the things I like in this new model is the battery hatch, its held on by magnets and doesn't have the bolts sticking through the hatch like the FW-190 has. I do not care much for the "Trixie" decal on the cowl and I hope they leave it off the production run and give the decal to you loose in the box so the modeler can chose if he or she wants it on or not. They did this with the FW-190.

Excellent model

WOW, what a weekend!!!! It was great to meet a lot of you that showed up to the show.

The " Trixie " decal will be loose in the box. You get the choice of Tiger teeth, or the Trixie.
