Hangar 9 P-47D Thunderbolt 20cc ARF

Packed with firepower, fast and heavily armored, the mighty Republic P-47D Thunderbolt could complete virtually every task the U.S. Army required. WWII pilots called it the "Jug" for its massive size and bottle shape. The enemy knew it better as the "Juggernaut" because it dominated the skies as the toughest and hardest hitting foe ever encountered.

The Hangar 9 P-47D Thunderbolt 20cc ARF takes the popular warbird a bold step further. No stranger to making a great flying P-47D model, lightweight, laser-cut construction combines with expert craftsmanship to bring a durable, all-wood airframe with incredible realism and great performance. The result is a model replica that's a blast to fly and looks as though it belongs in a museum. Highlighting its outstanding appearance is a rich film covering with incredible detail and a satin finish. Stunning only comes close to the description of how the intricate panel lines and soft color transitions take this iconic warbird to deeper level. Plus, it's easy to maintain and durable. Multiple nose-art decal options included let you personalize the model to your own liking.

With a 20cc gas engine such as the easy-to-use Evolution 20GX, you can expect to get long flights that cost only pennies per flight. The large top hatch allows convenient access and quick electric flight battery changes. The two-piece, plug-in wing design makes transport and storage easy. Keep it simple by using the rugged fixed landing gear included, or go all-out and install the optional E-flite electric retracts. You won't be laboring over the basic build. All hinge slots and holes, including those for the flaps, are factory made so that your time at the bench can be enjoyable as possible. A majority of assembly is bolt-together and the complete hardware package includes everything needed for an engine or electric power installation.

Where this Thunderbolt really shines is in the air. Operational flaps make the flight envelope as wide as possible so you can add that touch of realism on takeoff and enjoy smooth landings. With the throttle full-forward, this P-47D proves its heritage with maneuverability that's rock-solid, heart-pounding high-speed flight and a feel at the controls that will have you wanting more. Whether the P-47D Thunderbolt 20cc is your first warbird or a new addition to a growing fleet, don't be surprised if a Hangar 9 warbird is all you'll ever want to fly.

Lightweight Construction
Laser-cut, lightweight balsa and plywood construction is utilized to bring the P-47D Thunderbolt 20cc to life as a durable scale model that's expertly built to exacting standards.

Optional Retracts
Rugged fixed landing gear with shock-absorbing struts is included so that you can keep the project simple. The optional E-flite electric retract system recommended features all-metal durability and are an easy installation that lets you take the scale realism to a higher level.

Functional Flaps
Light wing-loading and a semi-symmetrical airfoil offer flight performance that's comfortable at a wide range of speeds. Operational flaps allow its versatile flight envelope to open even wider so you can increase flight realism that includes shorter takeoffs and slower landings.
