F4U-4 Corsair from E-flite

Details

The E-flite® F-4U-4 Corsair 1.2m is a full-house park flyer that flies as good as it looks. A big four-blade propeller, functional three-panel flaps, electric 90-degree rotating retracts and muscular outlines are just the highlights of its authentic feature list. Construction with Z-Foam™ material keeps the overall weight low and delivers a level of airframe durability that's ideal for everyday flying. But the exclusive feature that makes this definitive warbird the choice for your everyday flying is AS3X® technology. That's because the compact Spektrum™AR636A DSMX® receiver installed features an AS3X system that's specially tuned to give you rock-solid flight performance similar to the experience you'd have with an expertly set up model many more times its size. Whether you're an intermediate or advanced pilot, this Corsair is a sure to help you enjoy what flying a one-of-a-kind warbird is all about.

The 18-cylinder radial engine hung on the first Chance Vought Corsair cranked out an awe-inspiring 2,000 horse power. Later versions could develop 2,380 horse power, which meant more ammo could be packed in and hung on. Better still, those 380 extra horses meant that facing the enemy and making it back home was far more likely. With the new E-flite® F4U-4 Corsair 1.2m Bind-N-Fly® Basic you can have that powerful feeling with an RC recreation in U.S. Marine Corps VMFT-20 training squadron colors.

Vought F4U Corsair


Vought F4U Corsair

The Vought F4U Corsair is an American fighter aircraft that saw service primarily in World War II and the Korean War. Designed and initially manufactured by Chance Vought, the Corsair was soon in great demand; additional production contracts were given to Goodyear, whose Corsairs were designated FG, and Brewster, designated F3A.

The Corsair was designed and operated as a carrier-based aircraft, and entered service in large numbers with the U.S. Navy in late 1944 and early 1945. It quickly became one of the most capable carrier-based fighter-bombers of World War II. Some Japanese pilots regarded it as the most formidable American fighter of World War II and its naval aviators achieved an 11:1 kill ratio. Early problems with carrier landings and logistics led to it being eclipsed as the dominant carrier-based fighter by the Grumman F6F Hellcat, powered by the same Double Wasp engine first flown on the Corsair's first prototype in 1940. Instead, the Corsair's early deployment was to land-based squadrons of the U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Navy.

The Corsair served almost exclusively as a fighter-bomber throughout the Korean War and during the French colonial wars in Indochina and Algeria. In addition to its use by the U.S. and British, the Corsair was also used by the Royal New Zealand Air Force, French Naval Aviation, and other air forces until the 1960s.

From the first prototype delivery to the U.S. Navy in 1940, to final delivery in 1953 to the French, 12,571 F4U Corsairs were manufactured in 16 separate models. Its 1942–1953 production run was the longest of any U.S. piston-engined fighter.
