The A6M Zero was a long-range fighter aircraft operated by the Imperial Japanese Air Service. In early combat operations, the Zero gained a legendary reputation as a 'dogfighter' remaining king of the air until around 1943. The aircraft was designed with long range and performance in mind, durability and pilot protection were not considered priorities and this led to many very good pilots to loose their lives. Ultimately this resulted in an Allied advantage later in the war.
FMS have continuously developed and improved its 1400 Series Aircraft. The new Zero brings a cleverly constructed and extremely agile aircraft to the masses.
A new wing design incorporates a GRP socket and carbon wing tube, aileron stiffening inserts and 6 retaining screws. The resulting wing is light and extremely rigid making it very responsive, just like the real thing!
The Zero is ‘feature loaded’ from tip to tail with wonderful scale detailing, it even has fabric and rib effect on the ailerons and elevators. The worm drive retracts are complemented with ‘super slow servo’ operated inner gear doors and the fixed tail wheel driven off the rudder servo.
