With a 50cc engine, 86-inch span, fully sheeted and covered with flat finish MonoKote, this F4U dominated the Hobbico/Great Planes booth at the Toledo show. This ARF has a over-built center wing section with a double sheeting of balsa with cross grain sheeting that is factory formed and fitted for a precise, extremely strong structure. Plug-in wing panels, retracts (Robart) and multi-section flaps make this an awesome giant scale warbird for anyone’s hangar. Watch for the exclusive review coming soon in Model Airplane News!

  1. This Corsair is very impressive to see up close. The only thing I would like to see changed on this plane is the tail wheel. It sits very low. A scale tail wheel would finish this plane off very well.
