Regarded by many as the most formidable of all WWII American fighters, the F4U Corsair was a versatile, carrier-capable aircraft that provided excellent air and ground support. When it came to aerial combat, the Corsair’s record was very impressive: for every Corsair lost in battle in the Pacific theatre, this agile warbird took down eleven enemy planes. You’ll enjoy equally winning performance with Top Flite’s F4U Corsair at the field — a model that combines Gold Edition engineering with easy ARF assembly!
Built-up and sheeted wood construction, covered in flat-finish MonoKote®
Multi-section flaps are incorporated into the distinctive gull wing and are completely operational
Recessed gauges on the instrument panel add scale realism to the cockpit
The full cockpit interior includes seat and sides, plus a 3D instrument panel. Details include recessed gauges, rudder pedals and joy stick, as well as color graphics.
Pre-hinged ailerons and flaps reduce assembly time and effort; hidden rudder and elevator linkages enhance the plane’s scale appearance
The flat-finish MonoKote covering and decal set help this ARF stay true to the look of a combat-tested warbird. The fiberglass cowl, tail access panel and belly pan are painted to match.
Craftsmanship really shows up on the Corsair’s gull-shaped wing. The multi-section, operating flaps on the center section and outer wing panels are pre-hinged. The balsa sheeting on the center section is formed wet, curved and shaped on molds and then glued to the framework for a smooth, strong, scale appearance.
Mount an O.S.® 65AX ABL engine and you’ll enjoy outstanding 2-stroke power — or install a 4-stroke O.S. FS-95V engine for added muscle and scale-like sound.
The painted fiberglass cowl houses a dummy radial engine complete with pushrod detail. A machined aluminum prop hub is also included.
Durable fixed landing gear is included. For the ultimate in scale realism equip your Corsair with Robart® pneumatic gear (sold separately), which retract flush inside the wing for scale-like looks and flight performance.
A detailed cockpit is included that features recessed gauges on the instrument panel that enhance the plane’s authenticity.
Hidden rudder and elevator linkages offer scale appearance not found on other Corsair models. The pushrods are also hidden, and are easily accessible underneath a fiberglass panel.
