The 18-cylinder radial engine hung on the first Chance Vought Corsair cranked out an awe-inspiring 2,000-horse power. Later versions could develop 2,380-horse power, which meant more ammo could be packed in and hung on. Better still, those 380 extra horses meant that facing the enemy and making it back home was far more likely. With the new E-flite® F4U-4 Corsair 1.2m Bind-N-Fly® Basic you can have that powerful feeling with an RC recreation in U.S. Marine Corps VMFT-20 training squadron colors.
A big four-blade propeller, functional three-panel flaps, electric 90-degree rotating retracts and muscular outlines are just the highlights of its authentic feature list. Construction with Z-Foam™ material keeps the overall weight low and delivers a level of airframe durability that’s ideal for everyday flying. But the exclusive feature that makes this definitive warbird the choice for your everyday flying is AS3X™ technology. That’s because the compact Spektrum™ AR636A DSMX® receiver installed features an AS3X system that’s specially tuned to give you rock-solid flight performance similar to the experience you’d have with an expertly set up model many more times its size. Whether you’re an intermediate or advanced pilot, this Corsair is a sure to help you enjoy what flying a one-of-a-kind warbird is all about.
Electric Rotating Retracts
The installed main landing gear feature reliable electric retraction with covers over the steel struts and outer gear doors that enhance the scale appearance.
Functional 3-Panel Flaps
A light wing loading, plus operational flaps, gives this warbird a significantly greater flight envelope including the ability to takeoff in shorter distances and land more slowly.
