ESM Republic P-47D Thunderbolt, 71"

The Republic P-47D Thunderbolt produced by ESM, is yet another top notch RC scale airplane design to excite you with both appearance and performance. ESM of China has been importing RC scale airplanes into the USA and Canada for a few years now, and in that time ESM has become recognized as a new industry leader in highly detailed, great flying, ARF's. Not only are the ESM ARF's highly detailed, and great flying, they are extremely affordable for anyone to enjoy!

The P-47D, as with all of ESM's RC scale airplanes, come already painted at the factory, have pre-applied decals (which are then covered with a clear coat at the factory), have factory functional flaps (if the full scale version also had flaps), and come with one of the more complete hardware packages anywhere...including 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 ESM scale RC airplanes have poly resin fiberglass fuselages, with the wings being typical built up, and then covered with an etched polyester film, which is then painted for a perfect match! While all ESM scale RC planes come from the factory with conventional gear and wheels, 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. It doesn't end there, ESM offers separately a full line of scale accessories like bombs, gear doors, pilots, external fuel tanks and more, specifically designed to help those builders who want the most realism possible, without having to spend hours designing and building all these extra scale goodies.

Here at TBM we know that things can happen, and because of this, we work very hard with ESM to provide you with many spare parts. Simply refer to your warranty for further information as to parts availability.

The ESM Republic P-47D Thunderbolt, as with all of the ESM line of ARF scale RC airplanes, look and fly so realistically that we are confident that you will be extremely pleased! ESM is continually working on producing new RC scale aircraft, and most of these new offerings will be available with wingspans of 80 inches or more so that they will meet or exceed IMAA legal requirements...so be sure to come back often to see what new ARF scale RC aircraft TBM and ESM have coming out!

FEATURES:

The Republic P-47D Thunderbolt, 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 cavities 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 Republic P-47D Thunderbolt 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.

Important Addendum: Regarding CG in ESM Manuals

The Republic p-47 Thunderbolt, also known as the Juggernaut or 'Jug', was the largest single engine fighter plane of its day. Originally designed as an interceptor it was later turned into one of the most versatile and durable ground attack aircraft of its generation.

The C version of the P-47 entered service with the 56th fighter group in September 1942. The 56th was deployed to England in 1942, along with the 4th and 6th fighter groups supporting the bombers of the 8th Air Force. The 4th and 6th were largely experienced pilots, many of whom were US volunteers with the RAF, who had joined the US forces after America entered the war. The British were impressed by the P-47's size, and joked that the pilots could avoid Luftwaffe gunfire by running back and forth inside the fuselage. In part because of its size and speed, it was quickly nicknamed the 'Juggernaut' or 'Jug' for short. The P-47 D was introduced quickly after the P-47 first entered combat, making several small changes, such as more cooling flaps exitting the engine cowl to reduce heat build up, armour protection and larger fuel tanks (adding almost 70 Gallons of fuel), plus the addition of tanks.

These changes allowed the P-47 to excel in its role as an escort aircraft. Some D's were also fitted with bubbletop canopies.

With the addition of tanks, the P-47 could escort bombers deep into Germany, and this often led to a long flight home with a bored pilot and guns flush with ammo. As a result many flights engaged targets of opportunity, typically German convoys or other ground targets. It was quickly realized that the durability of the massive radial engine allowed it to survive ground fire that would have brought down other aircraft, the Mustang or Spitfire. The 8 .50 calibre machine guns made short work of lightly armoured targets. For the rest of the war it was primarily used in this role, destroying 90000 train cars and engines, 6000 tanks and armoured vehicles, and 68000 trucks. An impressive tally. No wonder when the USAF was looking for a name for the A-10 the called it the 'Thunderbolt II'!

Allied countries of the United States regarding shipment of any products from TBM

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 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.
