With its wide stance, this bird offers great ground handling capabilities for a WWII airplane, and delivers the performance and handling in the air that customers have come to expect from Hangar 9.

The P-47D-40 comes with several scale features out of the box, such as a fiberglass cowl, flaps, scale looking wing guns, a dummy engine, a top access hatch with hidden switches and three different sets of decals for a customized, clean look.

The P-47D-40 30cc is EP (electric power) capable with separately available parts, should the customer want to run with an electric powerplant.

Note: The scale propeller is shown in the photos. Do not attempt to fly the aircraft with this propeller as it is for display only.
