Overview

The P-40 was one of World War II’s most popular U.S. fighter planes. The last of Curtiss Aircraft’s famous “Hawk” line that originated in the 1930s, the P-40 eventually morphed into the P-40E. This heavily armed and armored craft was used by the American Volunteer Group in China. Hangar 9’s .60-size P-40E is a startlingly accurate scale rendition of an actual Flying Tiger aircraft owned by Rudy Frasca of Urbana, Illinois. With its realistic scale looks and sensational sport performance, the P-40E Warhawk 60 ARF perfectly captures the spirit.

Product Support Tips

How difficult is the P-40 to fly?

Since the P-40 is a semi-scale model it has been slightly tweaked to fly very well, but it does still have some qualities that make it a plane for relatively advanced pilots. Because of this, a beginner should not fly it. It does land very slowly for a plane of its type, and does perform very well. In the air, the P-40 flies very smoothly, and has no bad habits.

Can I fly the plane on a 4-channel radio system?

The P-40 does have pre-installed retracts in the wings, so unless you switch them out to a fixed gear (which requires much modification), or have a way to lock the retracts in the down position, you must have at least a 5-channel system.

What servos should I choose?

Standard servos are more than adequate for the plane. But keep in mind that the better servos you use, the better the plane will fly. A low profile retract servo will also be needed.

What radio system should I choose?

You can use any 5-channel radio system.

What engine should I choose?

Choose the lightest weight, highest power engine you can find, within the engine recommendations. The Saito 100 is a very good choice with this plane for unlimited performance.

Section 2: Attaching the Wing

Step 4
On this kit, the belly pan did not extend fully to the fuselage in the front due to the notch for the wing mounting plate on the trailing edge of the wing.  If necessary, you can simply enlarge the notch slightly with a file to move the belly pan foward to get a better look.

Section 7: Rudder Installation

Step 1

You will need to use a 5/64" drill bit in place of the 1/8" bit that is stated in the manual.

Step 2

This step was already completed on this model.

Section 8: Retract Linkage Installation

Step 2

These did require some trial and error to get to fit, but it was not overly difficult. Just take your time to make them fit properly.

Step 8


When setting up the retracts, it does take some trial and error of the pushrods to get the retracts to lock in both the up and down positions. This will take experimentation through adjusting the length of the pushrod by adjusting the easy link on the servo arm, and also the easy link on the bell crank inside the wing. By adjusting both of these links, and also possibly adjusting the length out on the servo (moving in on the arm gives less throw, while moving out on the arm gives more throw), set the retracts so that they will fully lock in both the up and down positions. Be certain that they are fully locked by pulling on the gear legs and also visually checking the retract locking bar inside the retract to be certain that it is fully engaged.

Step 10

If the "up" and "down" stop set screws shown on page 21 of the manual are not set properly, the retract may bind and not lock, and could cause the gear to collapse. Be certain that after adjusting the set screw, that the retracts will still fully lock in both positions.

Section 11: Fuel Tank Assembly

Before installing the fuel tank into the fuselage, note the postion of the plywood reinforcements inside the fuselage for the cowling screws, and mark their location on the outside of the fuselage as shown in step 5 in Section 14: Cowling installation.  The location of these will be difficult to see after the tank is installed.
