Amazing! We just finish a review of a very engaging new model from ParkZone, the ultra-micro Sukhoi, and bang here comes another airplane that not only fits everyone’s favorite WWII Warbird category but also brings all the features from the ParkZone Trojan, Corsair and Mustang. But it doesn’t end there—it just gets started! The new Messerschmitt BF-109G is another airplane that all airplane enthusiasts are familiar with. The BF-109G has the kind of proportions that make excellent model airplanes. A long tail and high aspect ratio wingspan guarantee that it will perform very well as a scale model. This model has so many details, such as the air intake scoop, steerable scale-like tail wheel, engine exhaust shields, scale spinner, machine guns, and an optional flap installation kit, it makes this airplane stand out over just about any park flyer you have ever seen.
The Messerschmitt will be available as both a BNF and PNP model but not as an RTF. The big internal feature is the new 15 BL outrunner brushless motor. A large scale profile three-bladed prop required more torque than the previous 480-size motor could provide. And that means more performance! There are even more features that we outline in our video preview, so it would be a good idea to watch and get ready to add this one to your hangar. I think I’ll be waiting in line to get one.
