The Grumman F7F Tigercat was a heavy-class fighter that served with the United States Navy and United States Marine Corps at the close of WWII and remained in service until 1954. It was the first twin-engine fighter employed by the Navy and distinguished itself in service during the Korean War.
The FMS F7F Tigercat PNP 1700mm represents the best FMS classic works has to offer to date. It adopts the popular quick and easy assembly and disassembly structure—no glue required. In addition, this model features the latest in multi-connect technology with streamlined wiring that eliminates the hassle of making multiple connections at the wing joint. Lightweight construction with EPO means you can count on a high-level of durability and a light wing load that translates naturally into incredible flight performance. The water-based paint used to finish this model minimizes blistering from sun and provides a vibrant appearance. Each control is individually linked with one or more dedicated metal-gear digital micro servos. You’ll also appreciate the precision and adjustability of ball-link equipped pushrods for initial setup and perhaps later on if flight trimming is necessary.
A proud achievement of this FMS model is the electric retract drive system that boasts a locked-rotor mode with overcurrent protection. The CNC-processed metal construction also offers a beautiful scale appearance, precision movement and high-level of durability. Factory installed sequencing gear doors are just icing on the cake. With a 62mm front wheel and 84mm main wheels, takeoff and landing on paved or a grass surface is possible. Plus you’ll have more than enough power given that the large brushless outrunner motors and its high-power ESCs simply operate off just one 6S 5000mAh LiPo pack. The battery compartment makes full use of airframe space by offering enough room to fit a wide range of battery capacities to enjoy higher performance or longer flight times.
The scale detail of this Tigercat is abundant with simulated engine features, operational scale propellers, intricate rivet and panel lines, plus a painted pilot figure and functional LED lights. Choose the blue or silver painted version. The blue version includes four sets of decals to help make your F7F stand out. A silver version is also available with factory applied “La Patrona” livery. Finally, with the FMS F7F Tigercat, you can bring a rare warbird to life again and showcase its mighty power as often as you like.
