The E-Flite Seafury is back!

 

A few years ago E-flite released a parkflyer Seafury featuring mechanical retracts.   It was quite an advancement at the time.  People loved the plane as it flew great and there just are not that many Seafury kits out there.  Unfortunately for E-Flite the company they contracted to manufacture the kits went out of business so they discontinued the kit.

Well it’s back now and made of the more durable Z-Foam.  It still has the mechanical retracts and detachable rocket armament.  additionally it also retained the same stick mount setup for the motor.  While not a big issue for more modelers these days it’s unfortunate that some minor revisions could not be made to update the kit for the modern electric retracts and firewall mounted outrunners people enjoy these days.  But lets not dwell on the minor issues but be glad we now have a parkflyer Seafury back in ARF form.  Perhaps we’ll see the P-38 revived as well?  We’ll have to wait and see what Horizon and E-flite have to say about that.

    I’d rather see E-flite bring the P-47 Razorback back in Zfoam. I’ve seen the P-38 a few times and I’m not that impressed. (although I know it was pretty awesome for it’s time)

    Yes the P-47 would be better and there are other options for the P-38 at this time. I just know a couple guys around here that really liked the P-38. Now let’s talk size. I want a bigger foam Seafury!
