Corsairs have a distinguishable uniqueness all their own; it’s the “bent” or inverted gull wing that was designed for prop clearance and housing the short and stout landing gear. Regarding the subject, scale rotating retractable mains are available from E-flite (part EFLG120) and easily bolt into the wing and plug into the gear channel of the included full-range Spektrum AR600 receiver. In order to take my Corsair to the next level, I added the recommended two flap servos (part no. PKZ1081) using hot glue to keep them in place and connected the included flap linkages. These servos also plug right into the other open channel of the receiver. In addition, I added some delay to those flaps through my JR 9303 for some more in-flight realism. The wing is held in place with screws and the elevator basically plugs into the fuselage and the addition of tape strips (also included) keeps it secured. The rudder is molded into the fuse and the steerable tailwheel is preinstalled. Rough field landing gear is available for the Corsair and enables the plane to run off of grass or less than smooth runways.
