F-4 Phantom II 80mm EDF BNF
We don’t post a lot of air news very often, but this F-4 Phanton II from Horizon Hobby really caught my eye. The scale looks on this thing are crazy. If someone asked me, I would of bet all day this was a model, and not something that could actually take to the air and fly. This model is categorized as an “Extra Scale” version, meaning it has much greater detail then your regular rc aircraft. It does need some assembly, but does not even require glue to get it put together and up and running. It is a BNF (Bind and Fly) meaning you will need to supply your own transmitter, but it does come with a Spektrum receiver.
The best handling high-performance F-4 Phantom EDF (Electric Ducted Fan) jet model yet. Scale replica of the awe-inspiring and legendary supersonic interceptor and fighter-bomber. Extra Scale details including removable ordnance and tanks, strut covers, molded-in panel lines and more. Functional Extra Scale features including LED lights, full-flying stabs, flaps and sequenced nose gear doors.
Factory-installed high-power 6S-compatible brushless inrunner motor and 100-amp ESC. Factory-installed metal-geared servos with ball-link equipped linkages. Electric retracts with shock-absorbing struts for operation from a variety of surfaces including grass.
No glue required for assembly and can be ready to fly in less time than it takes to charge a battery. Two-piece wing with hands-free connection system and a magnetically-secured nose cone. Convenient top hatch with clear canopy, cockpit detail and a pilot figure.
Factory-applied VF-51 “Screaming Eagles” squadron finish. Durable yet lightweight, fully-molded EPO airframe
