That’s right, we got the exclusive on the great looking and flying Hangar 9 F4u-1D Corsair 60cc. I have to say that this is a fun build and the kit almost falls together with almost perfect part fit. We added almost all of the extra scale details that are optional and available from Hangar 9, they are well worth the time and effort and range from 5-inch aluminum wheels to navigation lights to ordnance pylons. For me the big attraction is the 7-cylinder radial engine from Evolution, this is one fine piece of machinery! (Speaking of, I would highly recommend installing the McDaniel R/C Glow Driver available from Sonic Tronics — it gives a reliable idle and makes the engine easy to start.) Enjoy the photos and check out the video, then look for the complete review in the January issue of Model Airplane News.
