From Pearl Harbor through 1942, the F4F Wildcat was the only U.S. fighter in the Pacific theater capable of thwarting the advances of Japan’s naval air forces. And though it was slower and less maneuverable than the vaunted Zero, the rugged Wildcat helped a skilled pilot overcome the performance gap and live to fight another day.

The classic ParkZone F4F 1.0m Wildcat parkflyer returns as a great flying warbird you can enjoy almost anywhere. Modeled after a plane flown by Lieutenant Commander Edward “Butch” O’Hare—the U.S. Navy’s first flying ace—a legendary warbird comes to life with authentic detail such as a realistic paint scheme, simulated engine and cowl flaps, molded wheels tucked into the fuselage and more. Its flight performance is equally impressive thanks to the full 4-channel control and ample power provided by its 480-size brushless motor system. 


In-Depth Features: 

  • Fast Assembly: Out of the box, final attachment of the horizontal stabilizer and two-piece, plug-in wing is simple. Each wing panel features a dedicated aileron servo for hassle-free control that’s precise.
  • Durable Construction: Construction with durable EPO material makes it possible to replicate complex detail in a lightweight form. The result is an outstanding scale appearance that’s easy to maintain and allows the most satisfying flight experience possible to shine through.
  • Brushless Power: The powerful 480-size brushless outrunner motor installed features 960Kv and delivers smooth operation that’s surprisingly quiet. Excellent flight times and strong performance can be expected with 3S Li-Po battery packs from 1300–2200mAh.
  • Bind-N-Fly® Convenience: Already own a transmitter? Bind-N-Fly (BNF) aircraft make getting into the air quickly and with the best control experience possible easier than ever. They come out of the box with the servos, power system and a Spektrum 2.4GHz receiver installed, so all you need to do is bind the receiver to a compatible Spektrum transmitter, finish any final assembly and fly!

Don't think this plane needs my review, but there's none on here so I'll give it. Was gonna pass on this one since it was a belly lander, but after reading other reviews I could see previous owners loved it. Even without AS3X. Plus I figured it give me an option if i come across a grassy field. Received it in the mail not long ago and it seems well put together and will handle some rough landings. Took it out for a maiden flight yesterday, flew it on the e-flite 3S 2200mah batteries set my timer for 8 minutes but stretched it to 9, pretty sure it would fly for more than 10 min as when I plugged the batteries in to charge they were barely under 50%. Really solid flyer didn't use safe mode very much at all except for hand launches and landings. Using the bigger 2200mah battery I did give it some trim for up elevator and used 80% dual rate and 85% expo for ailerons and elevator kept rudder at the default settings. Felt really smooth in the air for leisure flying and acrobatics with no over correcting. Glad I bought it.
