The Bell P-59 Airacomet was the first american jet fighter.
It had its maiden in 1942. There where a total of 50 aircraft built in several versions, but soon be replaced bei the Lockheed P-80.
This Airplane is of interest for modelers not only e to its unique looks, but for its big wing area that makes it fly like a trainer.
So on the video you see it perform with a relatively ?weak" drive for trainer like performance, however we recommend the stronger Midi Fan evo HET 650-68-1500 drive for crisp performance.
The model was designed around our Midi Fan evo, other 90 mm will most likely not fit, since especially the ducting was optimized for the Midi Fan evo.
