Tips for Electric Conversion:Click here to view a RCU thread on electric conversion of a Hurricane This size motor, the E-Flight Power 160 or equivalent is more than enough power for the 80" ESM planes. It can also be used with the 72" ESM planes with smaller batteries.

This Hawker Hurricane 82" wingspan airplane is produced by ESM in China. ESM has been importing planes into the US for many years, so the company and its products are well proven and are some of the best in the industry. ESM planes are factory painted to scale, have pre-applied decals which are covered with a clear coat, have functional flaps if standard on the full scale version, and most hardware included (screws, rods, fuel tanks etc...).

All ESM planes are painted with a very high quality enamel paint which is resistant to oil, grease, and fuels. The high gloss paints are of course easier to clean than the low gloss. These paints can be painted over for weathering and the like.

Most fuselages are epoxy resin fiberglass. The wings are typically built up, then covered with an etched polyester film and painted.

ESM planes are very high quality at a very reasonable price. They come with conventional gear and wheels in the kit. If the full scale model had retracts, the retracts are available separately. Retracts add a level of complexity to the model which is for more experienced pilots. Some planes offer scale accessories like bombs, gear doors, pilots, external fuel tanks and more separately for those builders who want more scale realism.

TBM carries some spare parts for ESM planes. Check out the ESM warranty for further information on spare parts. These planes look and fly very realistically. You will not find a better model anywhere even close to these prices. ESM is continually producing new products. Most of these new products will be 80" wingspan or larger to meet the needs for IMAA. We are confident that you will be happy with your model.

The ESM Hawker Hurricane, as with all of ESMís scale models, is loaded with features never before found in such low priced ARF's, resulting in highly detailed, great looks, and great flying ARF's!

The detailed fuselage is poly resin fiberglass, with scale panel lines and rivets molded right in. Wings are typical built up construction, include pre-designed cavity's and mounting blocks for optional scale retracts, and have factory constructed flaps, all of which is then factory covered with an etched polyester film. All parts are finally expertly painted right at ESM's factory, and once dry, all scale decals are pre-applied, and are then covered with a factory clear coat for protection.

All ESM planes are painted with a very high quality enamel paint which is resistant to oil, grease, and fuels. The high gloss paints are of course easier to clean than the low gloss. These paints can be painted over for weathering and the like.

The ESM Hawker Hurricane comes from the factory with conventional gear and wheels, and one of the more complete hardware packages anywhere...including screws, rods, fuel tanks...etc. ESM also offers a complete line of retracts for each individual plane, adding to the level of scale realism that all scale pilots look for in an ARF.

















The hurricane was designed in response to an Air Ministry request for a design to utilize the new Rolls Royce Merlin engine. After the design was rejected as 'too conventional' by the air ministry, the design was continued as a private venture. To keep costs low, Hawker used many parts from existing aircraft, which is why the Hurricane looks so similar to the Hawker Fury; it is essentially a monoplane version. The aircraft first took to the sky in November of 1935.

Despite being considered obsolescent, the Hurricane provided the defense of England during the Battle of Britain alongside the more famous Supermarine Spitfire. Despite the enduring image of the Spitfire as theaircraft which won the battle of Britain, the Hurricane actually scored more kills: 1,593 out of the 2,739 total claimed. This was in part to its design. The Hurricane's close arrangement of 4 .303 calibre machineguns in each wing meant a closer convergence point when fired. This was useful against the heavier and more armoured German He-111 and JU-88 bombers. In combat with fighter aircraft, this was a less useful advantage, and the other aspects such as speed, climbing and diving rates and turning radius were more important, in which the Hurricane was not as capable. Still, the Hurricane was a durable and effective fighter instrumental in the defense of England.

After the Battle of Britain, the aircraft was sent to other theatres, such as North Africa, the defese of Malta and Indo-China. The RAF also trained Russian pilots on the hurricane, and thousands were sent to aid Russian forces from the German invasion.

This model is of the aircraft flown by Tuck between December 1940 and April 1941, when it was destroyed in combat. Having survived, Tuck continued to fly hurricanes until he was shot down by anti-aircraft fire over France in January of 1942. Taken to Stalag Luft II he tried to escape on several occaisons. With the Russians closing in, the camp was to be moved. While being transported away from the POW camp he escaped and ed the Russian forces. He had some knowledge of Russian, which he put to good use, and actually fought with the Red Army until the Russians were able to secure his transport to England.

An excellent pilot Tuck was promoted several times, first to Squadron Leader, and later to Wing Commander and Wing Leader. He shot down 27 enemy aircraft with 2 shared kills, 6 probable kills and numerous ground targets destroyed. He was awarded the Airforce Cross, the Distinguished Service Order and the Distinguished Service Cross (with two bars). After the war he was a test pilot of the Electric Canberra before retiring to a mushroom farm. He developed a keen friendship with Adolf Galland after working together on the movie Battle of Britain.

WARNING - Gasoline and Turbine powered R/C model aircraft are not manufactured to withstand unlimited G's. Any R/C model aircraft can fail, be it a wing folding up or a fuselage breaking in half under too high of a load. Just as any full size aircraft, model R/C aircraft have a maximum G rating. Because you are not in the plane flying it and experiencing the G's and reading the G-meter, it is more difficult to judge the G's on the aircraft, and it is very easy to exceed the limits of the aircraft. Understand that if you perform a snap roll, parachute, wall, blender, knife edge loop, or pull hard on the elevator at almost any speed, you can be putting in excess of 15 G's, even in excess of 30 G's, and most aircraft can only designed to take 10-12 G's. If you perform any violent maneuver, you can break your plane. When I perform hard maneuvers, especially for the first time on an airframe, I am prepared for a failure and am prepared for it as best I can be. This mainly includes performing the maneuver far enough away from spectators that in event of a failure that I am not endangering others. In addition, be prepared for the manufacturer to not pay for a new airframe which is broken during flight. It is common practice for any manufacturer to not replace an airframe which breaks in the air or upon landing. I have only seen manufacturers replace airframes when they have received many of the same failures and the manufacturer determines that there was a design or manufacturing error. If you break an airframe, and you are the only one to do so, then it is probably not the fault of the manufacturer. Please fly safely, and avoid full throttle operation other than at low airspeeds.

R/C model jets, warbirds, aerobatic planes, DJI S1000 Octocopter, and UAV Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to name a few are not a toy! If misused, it can cause serious bodily harm and property damage. Fly only in open areas, and AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautics) approved flying sites. Follow all manufacturer instructions included with your plane, radio, servo's, batteries and engine. Aircraft manufacturers guarantees each kit to be free from defects in both material and workmanship at the date of purchase. This warranty does not cover any component assembled by the customer. All parts of high stress must be inspected and reinforced if necessary by a competent builder. Some parts should be glued again. High stress areas such as firewalls, motor boxes, wing mounts, landing gear mounts, etc., are areas of high concern. Seek help if necessary. In not case shall TBM be liable for the cost of any product it offers which is not manufactured by TBM. The liability to the manufacturer cannot exceed the original cost of the purchased item. Further, TBM reserves the right to change or modify this warranty without notice. In that TBM has no control over the final assembly or materials used for final assembly, no liability shall be assumed nor accepted for any damage resulting from the use by the user of the final user-assembled product. By the act of using the user assembled product, the user accepts all resulting liability. The kit manufacturers have provided you with a top quality, thoroughly tested kit and instructions, but ultimately the quality and fly ability of your finished model depends on how you build it; therefore, we cannot in any way guarantee the performance of your completed model, and no representations are expressed or implied as to the performance or safety of your completed model. It is the user's responsibility to inspect each component for worthiness.
