Drop Tank for .60-1.20 size models (1/7.5 scale). Perfect for most TF , Hangar 9, Royal or similar sized P-51, P-47, Tempest, Typhoon Models.

This type of tank was used in WWII on several allied fighters, including the famous P-51 Mustang, P-47 Thunderbolt, and the Hawker Tempest & Typhoon. During that time in the war, aluminum was scarce… so this type of tank was actually made with laminations of paper, which gave it a unique shape and texture.
The FirePower R/C 108 gallon drop tank detail has rarely been duplicated accurately on an R/C model drop tank- until now! Are you tired of taking your model to the field, only to see two others that look identical? These will make your plane stand out in the crowd! Guaranteed to increase the “WOW” factor.

Designed using cutting edge CAD software, these drop tanks were then produced from molds tooled with CAM (computer aided manufacturing) machinery to assure the best possible fit, shape, and symmetry. Use for decoration, or make them droppable… your choice. Mounting system not included (make your own mount or get a Firepower Pylon mount set).

Assembly and paint required Printed instructions with photos/diagrams included. This ordinance when use with the FIREPOWER R/C working Pylons will allow quick loading and unloading of ordnance on the ground WITHOUT turning on your radio.

    Please remember to BE SAFE! You and you alone are responsible for safety. Can cause injury if misused. While flying your model & using your simulated ordnance, keep in mind that once an object is released from your model in flight, it becomes a projectile and is no longer under your control. Do not release anything from an R/C model unless all conditions are right for a safe drop. Only perform dropping operations in a wide open area and always announce your intentions to any bystanders/spectators/fellow pilots. Do not release over or near people, buildings, vehicles, power lines, other models, property, etc.
