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, its heavier armor, self-sealing fuel tanks and rugged airframe could often help a skilled pilot overcome this performance gap and live to fight another day.

ParkZone brings the legendary Wildcat to life with this great flying Bind-N-Fly park flyer modeled after a plane flown by Lieutenant Commander Edward “Butch” O’Hare – the U.S. Navy’s first flying ace. Scale touches include a realistic paint scheme, simulated engine cylinders 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 brushless motor and the included 3S 1300mAh Li-Po battery.

Best of all, you can have it flying in the time it takes you to charge the included battery pack and bind its Spektrum AR500 receiver to your full-range DSM2 aircraft system (sold separately).

ParkZone F4F Wildcat Bind-N-Fly Electric Airplane
Got this plane last spring. Very very good for the price. Good scale details, fast and aerobatic, more so than mustang IMHO. Plenty of power, handlaunches easily, very precise crisp control for a foamy. Placement of battery in nose behind vents keeps battery very cool. Has very good power off glide, makes landings a breeze. About 6:30 min of flying on a 1300 mah 11.1v battery. This plane a sleeper!!! Very very fun airplane, and a bargain for what you get
