Hurricane Mk I Large Balsa Freeflight Kit with History Sheet & Pilot Logbook

Part Number: PRS1001

Availability: In stock




A true veteran of the Battle of Britain; the Hurricane Mk I was built in 1940 by Hawker Aircraft. As opposed to the Spitfire built from steel; the Hurricane Mk I was built out of wood. This made it far quicker to build; so much so that it outnumbered the Spitfire two to one at the outbreak of the WW2. Its' wings would have had invasion stripes during WW2 to ensure that it wasn't mistakenly shot down by the British. It featured a Rolls-Royce Merlin engine which allowed for a maximum speed of 340 mph. It could climb to a maximum altitude of 36,000 feet, with an incredible power (for it's time) of 1,185 hp! The rate of climb was 2,780 feet per minute.
