Product Description

The Grumman F7F Tigercat is a twin piston engine aircraft developed during World War II. Originally envisioned as a carrier-based naval fighter, the Tigercat underwent several iterations and was later optimized for ground-based operations. Although World War II ended before it become fully combat operational, many variants of the Tigercat went on to serve in other conflicts such as the Korean War and in other capacities including as a night fighter, ground attack platform, and a dependable reconnaissance platform. Today, the Tigercat’s renown as one of the highest performing piston driven aircraft in aviation history continues in peacetime at air races, air shows, and commemorative events celebrating the men and women who served with these aircraft.   

 

 

Honoring this famed aircraft, we proudly introduce the FlightLineRC F7F-3 Tigercat, which is the world’s first mass production foam electric RC Tigercat. The F7F-3 Tigercat’s 1600mm wingspan and 1/10 sport scale matches our popular P-38 Lightning, and the two look excellent in flight formation together! Meticulously designed to incorporate EPO foam, wood, plastic, and carbon reinforcements, our design is easy to assemble and maintain, and delivers the strength and power to satisfy any RC airplane pilot. The main wing halves, horizontal stabilizer, and two engine nacelles each install with four screws. A new pliable ribbon wiring harness simplifies each wing connection to one instead of five, so the wing can be attached in less than one minute. The antenna and gun barrels are also designed to easily slide out to prevent damage during transport.

The generously sized battery bay can accommodate your batteries, receiver, and optional gyro in a cleanly organized layout. The full coverage plastic cabin doors are spring-hinged for simple and reliable operation and plastic radial engine details add realism to your model. To ensure a secure fit, the cockpit of this FlightLineRC F7F-3 Tigercat is held on by magnets and a sliding latch.
As with other FlightLineRC warbirds, the F7F-3 Tigercat arrives expertly painted and ready to customize. Four sets of decals are included in the box. Choose from these decals or recreate your own historic livery as you wish!
The FlightLineRC F7F-3 Tighercat arrives with dependable electronics pre-installed, using seven 9g and two 17g Metal Gear Digital servos to control the steering, rudder, elevator, ailerons and flaps. The aircraft uses our DayBright 3W LEDs for visibility. Static wingtip lights remain on, and the single landing light turns on only when the landing gear is down, for ultimate scale realism. For thrilling and efficient power, the aircraft features a pair of 3748-600KV brushless motors, 3-Blade 12*7 propellers (standard / reverse), and 60A ESCs. The model’s top speed is 125KPH/78MPH, and comfortable flight duration ranges between 5 and 7 minutes on either a pair of 4s 3000mAh or 4000mAh LiPo batteries, respectively. For even faster speeds approaching 155KPH/97MPH and extended vertical performance, an optional Sport Power System utilizing 3648-880KV motors and 2-Blade 12*8 propellers is available for separate purchase. 
The F7F-3’s generous wing area allows a minimum distance take-off length of 15-20 meters, and its 70mm diameter nose wheel and 80mm diameter main wheels and thick steel struts are excellent for operating on grass airfields. An optional compression strut upgrade is available for extreme grass or rougher conditions. Tricycle landing gear reduces the risk of tipping forward after landing, and makes taxing on the ground very stable. Four flaps slow the aircraft for controlled landings at speeds around 25KPH/15.6MPH. We recommend an Up Elevator MIX to correspond with flap deployment. 
In the air, the FlightLineRC F7F-3 Tigercat exhibits fantastic lateral stability, is very easy to control at a wide speed range, and has a predictable stall with easy recovery. We designed this aircraft to be a wise balance of top speed, vertical performance, flight duration, convenient transport, sport scale realism, and overall scale presentation. This is our seventh FlightLineRC warbird and it continues to innovate and raise the value bar for its owners. Own the first mass production foam electric F7F-3 Tigercat in the world, and set yourself apart at your flying field today!
