Exclusive Review! Hangar 9 P-47D 30cc

Exclusive Review! Hangar 9 P-47D 30cc

Here it is the Hangar 9 P-47D Thunderbolt 30cc ARF completed and ready for photos in 6 days, from start to finish.  This build included the optional air retracts (including tailwheel) from Robart, the optional cockpit kit from Hangar 9 and the Evolution 40GX gas engine.  The assembly went along very well due to the excellent part fit on this kit.  The key parts of the assembly that will require extra time are the mounting of the engine along with the cutting of the cowl, and installation of the retracts.  Look for the complete review in the May issue of Model Airplane News.  Enjoy the video and the photos.

  1. Hi John, can you give me a link to but one of those neat retract control valves you installed in the P47. By the way I never did see the interview you did when we at Prado with the big Hawker Hurricane, do you still have it? Love this new P47 but have a CARF P51 to get built! Cheers les

    1. Hey Les,
      The control valve is the one that comes with the Robart gears. I don’t see the interview on the site, but you were there, you know what we said :-). Are you going to be at any other events this year? Maybe we can meet up and do another one. Take Care

  2. This is far far far from a “kit”. It’s an Arf. Call it as it is.

    1. Sorry SupraFly,

      This is the P-47D ARF kit.

      Kit defined:
      Set of parts for assembling:
      A set of parts ready to be put together

      Now I do agree with you SupraFly the parts are rather large and there are not as many of them as there would be in a stick kit. However, it looks nothing like a P-47D until I assemble the parts.

  3. looked like alot or work.. good looking plane though… Can we have an out door video and in the air action?
