The 980mm High Speed P-39 Hells bells is another fantastic warbird from FMS. Expect way more than scale speed from this plane. We used an extremely accurate radar gun and consistently clock between 90mph and 95mph on high speed runs. Some have even seen over 100mph out of the box. Yes, this bird is extremely fast. We fly straight and level over the runway and average the passes in each direction to get these figures. You can optionally go to a non-scale 2 blade prop (not included) to achieve higher speeds well in excess of 100mph.
If you are not a speed guy, you will still enjoy this plane since we find it nice and stable at half throttle. Vertical is essentially unlimited. The High Speed P-39 Hells Bells, manufactured using lightweight but highly durable EPO foam, comes equipped with 4 metal gear digital servos. Ball link connectors are used replacing the traditional clevis for a more positive link to control surfaces, and two composite spars are used in the wing for added strength when making those "High Speed" passes over your flying site.
If you love the warbird look and enjoy the excitement of heart-pounding speeds, this aircraft will satisfy both of your desires! With the stock 3 bladed prop, 3648 brushless Outrunner motor, 4 cell LiPo battery and 60A ESC, the Hells Bells will be your next speedy warbirds.
