It's big and truly beautiful, and just one close-up look at this "Jug" will ignite the fires of flying passion in even the most blasé R/C'er! In World War II, the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt opposed Germany's toughest fighters as it guarded American bombers flying over Europe and it prevailed. That same indomitable spirit lives on in this 1/7-scale reproduction made of balsa, hardwood, fiberglass and plastic. We've spent countless hours in research and development to present you this beautiful ARF. We've given it true-to-scale features like an elliptical wing, airfoil shaped, fully sheeted stabilizers, open structure elevator and rudder surfaces, retractable landing gear, factory painted, molded fiberglass cowling, and even a beautiful aluminum spinner hub that's custom made for this aircraft.
For those with four-channel radios, we've included the equipment to make the landing gear fixed. When it came time to flight test this warbird, we pushed it to the limit. Oversized engines, forced dead-stick landings, rough fields, and windy days through it all, the "Jug" remained a joy to fly. And a great starting place for those who want to customize and detail the model into something well worth entering into a club level ARF scale contest.
