F4U Corsair  &  saito

ARF KIT AND RADIAL PACKAGE

The intimidating bent-wing warrior!


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!

flaps
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.
engines
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.
cowl
The painted fiberglass cowl houses a dummy radial engine complete with pushrod detail. A machined aluminum prop hub is also included.
landing gear
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.
cockpit
A detailed cockpit is included that features recessed gauges on the instrument panel that enhance the plane’s authenticity.
tail linkages
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.
