Overview

The Bf-109 was a major player in WWII with over 30,000 built before the end of the war. It was the favourite mount of many German Aces including Erich Hartmann, Hans-Joachim Marseille, and Adolf Galland. Somewhat eccentric Galland claimed to have the only cigar lighter equipped Bf-109 in the Luftwaffe!

Now, SIG brings you an Almost Ready to Fly model, patterned after the E series Bf-109's, for quiet electric power. The model is sized to use affordable electric components, yet large enough to be a realistic flyer. With an intermediate to advanced pilot, it is capable of every scale maneuver that the full-scale fighters were able to do, plus some. It can be flown ROG (rise-off-ground) with the landing gear or hand launched without the landing gear to simulate retracts.

The Bf-109 ARF has been engineered to get you into the battle as quickly as possible with an R/C model that will truly last. The airframe has been expertly built in jigs and covered with pre-printed AeroKote® in camouflage colors showing panel lines and other scale details. The hardware package includes virtually everything needed to complete your model including rugged wire landing gear, scale wheel well covers, quality main wheels, ready to install tail wheel assembly, pushrods and linkages, wing radiator covers, engine air intake scoop, spinner, magnetic hatch retainer and canopy with painted framework. Assembly is super quick using the detailed fully illustrated assembly manual. Controls: rudder, elevator, ailerons, motor.
