Alfa Model F4U-1 Corsair ARF (Black)

Availability: In stock



The Chance Vought F4U Corsair was a carrier-capable fighter aircraft that saw service in World War II and the Korean War (and in isolated local conflicts). Goodyear-built Corsairs were designated FG and Brewster-built aircraft F3A. The Corsair served in some air forces until the 1960s, following the longest production run of any piston-engined fighter in U.S. history (1942–1952).Some Japanese pilots regarded it as the most formidable American fighter of World War II. The U.S. Navy counted an 11:1 kill ratio for every F4U shot down.
The Alfa Model F4U-1 Corsair has the following features:

• It is almost ready to fly: you have to apply decals, install the propulsion unit and the RC equipment. You can utilise the kit's box as the transport and storage container for the finished model.

• The model is moulded from extruded polystyrene foam with a tougher surface layer, making the model more resistant to surface damage. All exposed places are also covered by additional plastic reinforcements. The strength/weight ratio of the model is high, therefore the danger of damage in normal operation is very low.

• When designing this model the maximum attention was devoted to its aerodynamic layout (e.g. the semi-symmetrical wing section, the symmetrical horizontal tail section were used), ensuring high aerodynamic finesse, with the resulting wide band of operational speeds and docile flying characteristics typical for much larger models.

• The range of proven power units offered enables to build a scale model of flight performance corresponding with that of the best slow flyers, as well as with the fully aerobatic models.

• To control the model you need the RC equipment suitable for controlling the slow-flyers - it would enable you to fly majority of the aerobatic figures (with the possible exception of those that require the rudder control).
