The F4U was most notable by its awesome power to weight ratio and its agility. The iconic inverted gull wing design gave this bird a unique silhouette in the sky and allowed it to throw a huge prop while clearing an aircraft carrier deck with its low slung landing gears . Its landing gears were able to retract flush into the wings to give it better aerodynamic performance allowing it to hit speeds of 400mph. The F4U was famous for its ability to outrun, outclimb, and out gun any plane during hits heyday in World War II.
Airfield recreated this American military aviation marvel with its newest 1450mm F4U Corsair. The plane is constructed of durable EPO foam. The wings span 57 inches and the fuselage length is approx 46 inches. The electric retracts are operated by a delay system which allows the gear doors to slowly open and close mimicking the 1:1 scale model. Other scale features include LED navigation lights, a period correct pilot, and military decals applied.
This kit version comes with the electronic retracts and delay system. A motor, esc, servos, battery, and radio system are required to complete this plane. This F4U Kit makes the perfect platform for a awesome scale build.?
