Mitsubishi Zero Composite w/Retracts 0.46 Glow 1360mm (ARF)
In the early days of the Pacific War, the Zero was the most outstanding and feared fighter of the conflict, it's light construction gave the Zero good speed and outstanding maneuverability, particularly at low altitudes, combine this with it's impressive firepower and you have arguably the best dogfighter of WW2.
This Zero features a tough composite fuselage complete with panel lines, rivets, etc, the 1pc removable wing & horizontal stabilizer are a traditional balsa construction. The model comes with a very comprehensive and nice quality hardware kit which includes the fuel tank, engine mount, servo lock leads, alloy servo horn for the pull/pull rudder and also a pair of mechanical retracts complete with wheel wells and gear door covers.
This Zero is a great club sized warbird, it features a high level of scale detail and really looks the part with it's authentic semi-gloss finish, it even comes with a set of metal exhaust stubs, glassfiber drop-tank and a ply radio mast for that final scale touch, the H-King Zero is a great flying model, as well as being a practical and detailed warbird that doesn't cost the earth!
Features: Tough Composite Fuselage High level of scale detail Authentic finish Comprehensive hardware kit Tough retracts, ideal for grass strips Low build cost Practical size for transportation
the 52 should fly it ok but if you've got bigger id use it ,mines got a os 70 fs and some extra weight but not a great deal of it ,its only got a short nose so its bound to need weight .if I new how to post pictures id take the cowl of and post them
ive had no c of g issues balances as instructions and ive even been able to remove some weight out of the front ,ive flown this plane dozens of times over the last 9 months , ive even bought another one of these for this season ,one of my favourite small warbirds ,yes I agree the instructions on this are not great but this is probabley not most peoples first artf , so it is not a difficult put together ,
Mine has flown with no problems from its first flight it did need down elevator to keep it level
The manual which comes with this model is complete rubbish. The amount of weight required to make the suggested CG correct makes the plane unusable. Unless you have experience with building and tuning planes, I would stay away from this one.
the re tracks suck on this just don't line up going to have to buy new or do hell of a lot of work on both wings a shame relay because i like this model its been a good kit instructions are rubbish but you can work it out i took loads pics if you want to see look top right under files
Hello Kevin, I have taken this model from ebay. With your build log, I discovered that it has serious problem of CoG. I would to use an ASP FS61AR with this plane, but I'm very interested on your finally setup, and How may weight have you plance on the nouse. One more thing, nobody have tried to make some holes on the tail (covered with oracover or similar) to make it less heavy ?? Thanks in advance Max
the kits good well put together im only a novice at this building planes iv put the servos in done few other bits. instructions are not very good you get bags of parts bits its built well im going to have another go at it this weekend i will try do a u tube because i need some ideas as to what and were some of these bits go lets just roll with it see how i get on
I bought this exact zero plane a few years ago, it is fibre glass and converted it to electric. At the time I used a turnigy 5055 black motor, 2 x 3 cell 2200 lipo in serial and from memory 80 amp Esc and a separate nicad batt to run the servos.. I used normal size servos not micro and small. IT FLEW AWESOME. Unfortunatly came to a demise when I ran out of power too long flying and crash landed. I am thinking of buying another one. You will have to dremel out the cockpit and put hinges in to put batteries in the plane other wise remove the wing all the time to insert batteries. Hope this helps.
I flu dis airpane butt mine goes reverse only! I turn around propprller and switch wires butt no change. I can fly plane butt look like DORK flyin round bassawkwards in reverse, is hard to land backwards. HELP
No, pal. You see the 3 wires coming out of the motor? That's a brushless motor. You will need an ESC (Electronic Speed Controller) that can be found at Hobby King website. It also comes with 3 wires that are to be connected to your motor. That's how it works.
Call me picky, but I am a little disappointed with the zero. I don't really care about the scale and how close it matches the real bird, but alignment of wings, tail and body matters most to me, as it would makes the bird enjoyable to fly or not. I noticed that the right and left mold of the body differs, and that makes the elevator to have different distances to the wing up to 9mm. The tail section alignment needs a lot of improvements. Sure it's cheap enough, but considering the amount of time to repair what supposed to be fine in the first place and the fact I haven't flown the bird until today, I'd rather pay a little more.
