Reno Aces FG-1 Corsair Lucky Gallon from HobbyKing

Details

The H-King FG-1 Corsair "Lucky Gallon" is the third in the mini-series from H-King, the "Reno Aces", WW2 fighters dressed to impress at the air races. The FG-1 Corsair "Lucky Gallon" with the included stock 3108-1070KV brushless motor offers a really quick model straight out of the box with speeds approaching 100mph when using the recommended 2200mAh 4S LiPo. However, if you are an experienced hand and are looking for 100+ mph speeds then there is the optional drop-in fit 3108-1170KV 'Pro' brushless motor. This will give your great-looking Reno Ace really ballistic performance on the same prop, ESC, and 4S battery for those that can handle the extra rotational torque on launch.

The Reno Aces FG-1 Corsair "Lucky Gallon" is a bent wing hot rod, it is fast, is very aerobatic, but is also a very stable flyer. Just like the other models in this range, it really grooves and feels locked in at full power, but slow it down and it is a real pussycat too, and just as much fun. The stall is very benign, it's basically non-existent, the controls remain effective throughout the complete speed range. Once you're done with your 6+min flight, fully flared landings are very easy to achieve and make belly landing the FG-1 Corsair a pure joy.

The full-size "Lucky Gallon" was the first Corsair to be used for racing and competed in the 1946 Cleveland Air Races. The pilot was Cook Cleland and he raced in the Championship Race, and achieved an average speed of 357.5mph, finishing in a credible 6th place.

The H-King version of this classic racing FG-1 Corsair comes "Plug N Fly" which means it has the motor, ESC, and servos pre-installed. The tough EPO foam is finished in the authentic color scheme of Number 92 "Lucky Gallon". Assembly is very easy and straightforward with its one-piece wing and simple slot in horizontal stabilizer (no glue required). Other features are the substantially reinforced fuselage, plywood and carbon are used to create a stiffened and strengthened fuselage, and motor box. Plastic skid plates are fitted to all the underside contact areas for protection when landing, and you are supplied with the option of both a clear, or a silver canopy to add the finishing touch to your Corsair.

So to summarize, the H-King FG-1 Corsair "Lucky Gallon" is fast out of the box with the pre-installed motor (optional 'Pro' motor available for even more speed), it has fantastic flying qualities with good fast and slow speed handling, is strong, and quick to assemble. It is a great contender for use at fun, club pylon racing events with the strength and maneuverability to do "Bank and Yank" pylon turns. A great, fun airplane that is brilliant to fly, looks fantastic in the air and will have you smiling from ear to ear the whole time you are flying it.
