From Pearl Harbor through 1942 the F4F Wildcat was the only U.S. fighter in the Pacific capable of thwarting Japan's naval air forces. Although 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. Edward "Butch" O'Hare was just such a pilot. He distinguished himself in a Wildcat by becoming the U.S. Navy's first fighter ace and earning the Congressional Medal of Honor. This ultra-micro recreation bears the markings of O'Hare's aircraft and is a tribute to him and all the other Wildcat pilots who faced the might of an empire and prevailed.
Powerful 3000Kv 180-Size Brushless Motor with a 3-Blade Prop
In addition to the speed and climb performance of a brushless motor, you also get the realism of a 3-blade propeller that perfectly complements the model's other scale details. The power system is designed for use with a 200-280mAh 2S 7.4V LiPo battery (sold separately). An E-flite® 280mAh 2S 7.4V 30C pack is recommended
