This great looking ME109 is made from virtually unbreakable EPP foam and is ideal for combat dogfighting with your flying buddies.
Easy and fast to assemble, it is cheap to build yet will provide hours of fun, very easy to repair if you do get pretty badly shot up, some cyano and kicker will be all it takes to get you back out on the next sortie!
Performance with the reccomended power train will be plenty for those classic fighter maneuvers as you try and get on the "six" of your next victim! This 109 looks so good that even if you dont fly combat, it will provide hours of low cost enjoyment, but lets be honest, shooting down the "enemy" is just so much fun!
No I don't believe it is doable without substantial modification. The wing joint would get quite flimsy over time. The wingspan isnt terribly big so I find hot glueing the wing to the fuselage is best. It doesnt rip chunks of foam out in a crash like CA would. I have transported this plane in several different cars and it hasnt been a problem.
I would say go with the HK2818 1350kv, unless you want reinforce the wings. As I have the HK2824 1300kv and seems to be too much power and can make the wings fold up. I only ever fly it at around 1/4 to 1/3 throttle. Also when using a prop adaptor (not prop saver included) with a 1000mA Batt, the plane is a little nose heavy. The HK2818 is a little lighter too.
drugos should not reply to posts since he HAS NO IDEA about the proper terminology about rc airplanes. drugos has NO IDEA what the difference is between BASIC, SPORT AEROBATICS and 3D. 3d is very advanced aerobatics, NOT BASIC FLYING. basic 3d is hovering, harriers, waterfalls etc. basic sport aerobatics is rolls, loops and knife edge. EASY SHIIT.
I have been fly RC for over 25 years, I have flown IMAC, I have aircraft from Carden $40% Cap 232 all the way down to micro and about every size of heli. I know what im doing. but you need to pull your head out of your **- and stick to you flight sim
it is set up as a fun flyer the kind you have in the trunk of the car with a cheap HK radio and have cheap quick flight fun. I like planes like this as I use them as a template and make foam knock offs.
just fly within your limits and comford zone. The more you fly in wind the better you get at it but with this plane stick to the early morning calm winds and enjoy. That is all it is a light weight fun flyer
To HK: The cross located under the cokpit is somekind of WW2 Romanian cross. Both the german and romanian crosses on a plane did not exist. More, the yellow front and number is caracteristic to romanian ww2 bf-109's. Anyway nice plane
and the swastika on the tail is in the wrong rotation, and the fuselage is much too thin, the shade of yellow on the cowl is incorrect and the panel lines are not in the correct position. *-)
How can HK expect me to win a F4c competition with this $30 plane. lol
Jodde, Im certain that snappy was making a joke about the scale look. If not he forgot to mention that its highly unlikely that german pilots decorated their planes with the HobbyKing logo, allthough I cant confirm that.
Sorry, it's not disrespectful. You people that want to sanitize history are the the problem. History should never be rewritten because you don't like it. You have to learn from history to ensure it's not repeated. By sanitizing history and pretending it never happened you are asking for a repeat. When don't you write a letter to the history channel asking them to blur out the swastika on WWII documentaries.
its a pitty the swass stika has ended up with a bad name,seeing it was stolen from the buddest!just the nazi's flipped it over and put a slant on it! would be very fun with a few mates down the field with these,would be having a ball taking each other out!well done HK,just need a few more verients to recreate battle of britten!
good point justice, hope this ME 109 soon have an opponent, maybe a Mustang or a Spitfire to have fun at the field dogfighting. this one looks terrific, I had a ME 109, and a Fockewulf form MSComposite, kind the same, but this one looks better
Got it in a brown box no damage from the shipping, mine where not cut perfectly especially at the bottom, it looks a bit like when I started cutting foam but I wont complain much just wish they threw that small piece of foam they cut off for the wing to fit in the box so you can stick it on after and make it look more finished off. I will make my own and stick it on there.
The build was easy and quick I used the suggested power setup HK2818 with 20A Esc and a 9x4 GWS prop (I have many so just popped it on) and 3s 1000mah NanoTech flight times 7mins. Motor little warm to the touch when run hard for extended periods but I am not too worried. It goes pretty fast and it looks nice in the sky.

Easy to put together and really no problems at all besides the precut holes for the reciver makes it neccesary to extend rudder and elevator servo, no problems with that but if you don´t have a really long cable for the BEC that one needs to be extended as well. I love flying the plane, it´s fast and quite responsive but I put in thin CF rods in the ailerions to get it eaven more snabby since they flex a lot. The cutting of the body was slightly uneaven but I just shaved it down with a razor blade to make the wings be at the right angle. So far over thirty flights and it keeps getting better every time. No plane for the newbie but totally OK for the sunday flyer who wants a uncomplicated plane to throw around that looks absolutely great in the air. Thanks HK!

I really liked the airplane flies without big adjustments. Dropped a few times, very strong. Thanks HK!!!!!!!!!!

Excellent plane at an excellent price! My mate bought one and after I saw how quickly he put it together and how well it flew out of the box, I bought one too for some foam dogfighting. Shipped well with no damage, and everything supplied to get the airframe together (no electronics). Looks great in the air too!
I only gave 4 crowns for quality for 2 reasons:
1) The supplied snap connectors should be thrown away immediately. The thread on the rod end means the connectors don't swivel properly in the servo horn. Worse than that, 3 of the 4 supplied connectors threaded during testing. I'm glad that happened on the ground! Buy the
'Pushrod Snap Connectors 1.5mm (5pack)' from HK instead.
2) The single aileron servo setup = fail. One HXT900 servo will not power both ailerons. The linkage and frankenstein servo arm setup does not fit properly in the fuselage (even with some significant foam cutting). Worst of all, if this servo ever dies you'll need to rip the wings off to replace it! Trust me, buy two HXT900 servos and a y-harness (or use two different channels on a computer radio) and use one servo per aileron. You'll thanks me :)

recieved in top condition no damage only two gripes with it.1 the servo cant pull both ailerons meant i had to buy another servo and cut out another slot in win wing. 2 them stupid prop savers keep flingin the o rings off.took it out for first flight yesterday very windy too windy in fact flew nice and level a bit twichy cuz two servo setup.
