After two flying seasons with a lot of flying hours, this plane was taken out of service to make room for the bigger 1500 mm Thunderbolt Razorback.
WW II Warbird Thunderbolt P-47D from Eflite with a bubble canopy, olive green with D-day stripes on the bottom. A fighter aircraft produced by the United States between 1941–1945. Its primary armament was eight .50-caliber machine guns and in the fighter-bomber ground-attack role, it could carry five-inch rockets or a bomb load of 2,500 pounds.
Bigger wheels and modify landing gear inclination to make it plane suitable for grass fields. Added Spektrum Airspeed, voltage, and Flight power telemetry. Put in Spektrum with AS3X technology 9 channel RX. Added some extra carbon rods in the fuselage and wings after a small crash (wingtip stall). Used different types of weathering techniques to improve the look of this model.
Aircraft Characteristics after Modification
This Aircraft made room for the bigger P-47D Razorback “Flying Floris” also on this Website. After the recuperation of spare parts, the foam was shredded.
