This ready to fly Micro F4U Corsair has it all, great looks, great performance and an ability to do it all in the smallest of indoor arenas, of if the weather is extremely calm, outdoors.
The moulded foam airframe features the classic tri-tone US Navy colour scheme and comes with two different decal sets for two WW2 Corsair aces; Gregg “Pappy” Boyington from the “Black Sheep Squadron” and Ira “Ike” Kepford of the famous “Jolly Rogers”.
In addition the model also has a scale looking 3 blade propeller, moulded panel lines and hatch detail and a crystal clear canopy. The landing gear and steerable tail wheel make take offs and landing from smooth surfaces very easy, however the main landing gear is easily removed if you want to enhance the look of the model in the air. Thanks to the durable construction hand launching and “belly” landing back on grass should present no problems.
The ParkZone F4U Corsair RTF comes complete with a Spektrum AR6400 DSM2 6-Channel Receiver/ESC/Servos unit pre-installed so you can fly without the fear of interference, a 1S 3.7 volt LiPo battery complete with a DC charger and a fully proportional four channel ParkZone 2.4GHz transmitter featuring Spektrum DSM2 technology.
Right out of the box the Corsair is almost ready for action, simply charge the flight battery and the model can be airborne in no time.
The famous "bent wing bird" the F4U Corsair was an outstanding fighter during World War 2 having at the time one of the largest engines available, the Pratt Whitney R-2800. The bent wing was necessitated by the tall landing gear which was in turn, necessitated by the huge propeller required to propel the plane at the desired high speed.
The Corsair F4U I variant, entered service in 1943 and was armed with six fifty calibre machine guns and had a speed of 425 mph. With a production run of over 12 years the Corsair remained in service with many nations until the 1960's, and later versions flew their last combat missions in the 1969 "soccer war" between Honduras and El-Salvador.
Of the 12,571 Corsairs produced, there are thought to be around 28 still airworthy today.
A clear window over the receiver bay in the belly lets the pilot monitor and make adjustments to the AS3X System on the flying field.Large wing area and low wing loading for super slow speed manoeuvres whilst the striking colour scheme aids orientation in the air.
The VisionAire™ 3D park flyer uses the proven AS3X (Artificial Stabilisation – 3-aXis) System to achieve a perfect balance of agility and stability.
Its wings are constructed of hollow carbon-reinforced Z-Foam™, material that is actually stiffer and lighter than solid foam. Removable side force generators (SFG) add stability at lower speeds.
