  • F8F Bearcat 1100mm PNP

    Shortly after the Battle of Midway, Jamie Thach (inventor of the Thach Weave combat tactic) and other pilots who had participated, met with Grumman personnel at Pearl Harbor to give input into a new carrier fighter design, specifically with maximum climb rate for interception. The resultant plane, the Bearcat, had the same engine as the F6F Hellcat, but was about 5 feet shorter. This, combined with a lighter airframe and a thinner wing, allowed the Bearcat a 50mph advantage over the Hellcat and a record setting climb rate. There is speculation that the testing of a captured German FW190 interceptor may have influenced the design. While arriving operationally in the summer of 1945 to the Pacific, the Bearcat was immediately busy being a Kamikaze Killer of the top rank.

    After the war the Bearcat filled out 24 squadrons and outperformed the early jet fighters, until being replaced by the F9F Panther and F2H Banshee during the Korean War. Subsequently the Bearcats went on to serve with the French in Vietnam as well as Thailand.

    In civilian use, surplus Bearcats dominated the Reno Air Races for decades. A highly modified F8F named Rare Bear set the world speed record for propeller driven aircraft at 528mph in 1989.

    Arrows faithfully recreates the F8F in exceptional realism. Despite its compact size, the realistic landing gear, retracts, panel lines, functional flaps, pilot and auxiliary fuel tank were all replicated realistically. The preinstalled 40A ESC and 3536 850kV power system is adapted for scale and sport flight maneuvers. For scale lovers, the Bearcat awaits!

    I’ve gotten about 20 flights on this bird I’ve had a lot of soft and hard landing and its very durable out of the box plane was really trimed we’ll just had to adjust down elevator about 6 turns on the connector this plane is really really fast on 4s and it slows down really good with half flaps I have a 2200 all the way to the front half throttle you can fly upside down with out giving it inputs it also has a fast climbing rate I wanna say it flys like a Trojan t28 on steroids but when landing you have to be good with that rudder due to it having a short tail bit over all this is my favorite plane right now I recommend this plane to everyone also customer service is great here

    What a nice airplane. This model not only looks the part, but also flys stable and with the flaps deployed, it lands scale like. I use 3S 2200 batteries in it and get about 6 mins airtime. This is one of the nicest planes in my hangar. Also the customer support here is top notch.

    I have been flying RC planes since 1980. First I have a 1200mm Flightline Bearcat that I love. I got this Arrows Bearcat when it had a $40.00 off sale. I have a lot of 3s batteries and hoped this one would be half as good as my Flightline Bearcat. The price was right and I said what the heck. The finish on this plane is fantastic. The decals are applied nicely and are not peeling anywhere. The only complaint about the Arrows Bearcat is the paint comes off extremely easily all over the plane. I took a trip to Home Depot, and got matching touch up paint for $ 4.00. That is really the only reason I did not give it 5 stars. The finish is a semi gloss and looks fantastic. To my surprise the Arrows Bearcat does not fly half as good as my Flightline one, it fly's every bit as good! It's probably the easiest war bird to fly I have ever owned. Ground handling is fabulous.Like others have said, the CG is critical on this plane. Too much elevator throw will make it snap in a heartbeat. Get that correct and this plane will make you smile every time you fly it. The only thing better than owing a Bearcat is owning 2 of them.
