Often mistaken during aerial combat with the more well-known Mitsubishi "Zero," the Nakajima Ki-43 was designated "Oscar" by Allied forces. Extraordinarily manoeuvrable with fast climbing capabilities, the Oscar wreaked havoc across the Pacific theatre. Its long range and incredible performance made it virtually untouchable until "Boom & Zoom" tactics were introduced among the Allied Air Forces, who were flying faster and more heavily armed but less manoeuvrable aircraft. The Hangar 9® Ki-43 Oscar 50-60cc 88" ARF brings this nimble warbird to life in a convenient scale model with unbeatable authenticity.
Designed for warbirds and club pilots alike, the new Hangar 9® Ki-43 Oscar is an almost ready to fly 60cc giant scale World War II Japanese aircraft delivering an authentic warbird experience. Featuring scale details typically not found on other ARF aircraft, this incredible replica has outstanding flying characteristics that Hangar 9 warbirds are known for around the world. One of only two Hangar 9 giant scale warbirds with satin-finish printed covering, the Ki-43 Oscar also includes panel lines, rivets and weathering. Additionally, many scale details are incorporated such as 3D instrument panel, pilot bust, 5" scale wheels, and more. The two-piece plug-in wings with aluminium tube allows for easy transportation to the flying field and storage. Optional scale sprung main pneumatic retracts are available separately. Whether this is your first warbird, or the perfect counterpart for your collection, the Hangar 9® Ki-43 Oscar 50-60cc 88" ARF is the most unique model in our line of 50cc-60cc giant scale warbirds.
