VQ Models P-39 Airacobra ARF
46-Size All-Wood Airframe Scale Airplane
Innovative WWII Workhorse
The P-39 was a unique aircraft. The mid-engine design allowed room for more armament up front in a nose that was sleek and aerodynamically efficient. Designed by Bell Aircraft, this aircraft was famous and liked by ace pilots like Chuck Yeager.
Over 9,500 P-39’s saw active service by the end of WWII. Though under-powered and somewhat quirky at altitude, the P-39 experienced great success as a low-level air-to-air fighter by the Russian army in the US/Russian Lend/lease program. Pilots enjoyed its ergonomics and outstanding visibility. Additionally, Bell had created an extremely reliable and durable plane with its reliable radio, armored glass, and airframe.
As a VQ Model, R/C pilots will enjoy its great flying characteristics and easy ground-handling with its tricycle landing gear which is uncommon in WWII fighter aircraft. Of course, it’s easy to assemble for intermediate and advanced R/C Modelers alike with its jig-built parts and typical ARF assembly techniques.
Electric or glow, two- stroke or four-stroke, the P-39 flies great, looks great, and will have you in the air in no time.

- excellent quality arf that flies great Review by heloplane
I chose to install a Saito 72 for my power plant and it hauls the Airacobra around the skies with power to spare. The Airacobra flies great with no bad habits and slows like a trainer to land and she looks as good in the air as she does on the ground. I have a new take to the field every time plane with my Airacobra and intend to buy more VQ arfs to add to my hanger in the near . (Posted on 2/23/14)
