Technical Specs
The Great Planes F4U Corsair kit makes it easy to build a winning warbird!

Known as the "Whistling Death" to its WWII opponents, the Corsair today is one of R/C's top scale projects. If you're not looking to commit the time and money that true scale requires, Great Planes now offers an alternative the best-looking, easiest-building semi-scale Corsair sport kit available!

  • Interlocking plywood fuselage frame (balsa sheeted)
  • Partially sheeted balsa wing (center section & leading edge)
  • Solid balsa tail section, removeable bolt-on wing
  • Vacuum-Formed ABS Cowling
Two degrees of washout increase low-speed stability a semi-symmetrical airfoil adds maneuverability for flying exciting "sorties"! Includes decals for all markings pictured, plus extra decals to reproduce a true Corsair scheme-ideal for Fun Scale competition.

The wing's center, right and left panels are assembled and sheeted while still on the building board to lock in alignment. They're then joined to achieve the trademark Corsair "inverted gullwing" shape.

To simplify aft fuselage construction, tail surfaces are first only temporarily attached. They're removed after the blocks have been installed to avoid interfering with block shaping. Afterwards, the fin and stab are permanently reattached.

Another example of how Great Planes makes the most of semi-scale realism: when used with an optional, Pitts-style muffler, the included, precision-formed ABS cowl will fully enclose the model's engine and exhaust.

All the wood to build the kit, plastic cowl, clear plastic canopy, nylon adjustable engine mount, CA hinges, decals, rolled plans, building instructions, and miscellaneous hardware (pushrods, control horns, etc.)

Engine: .40-.46 (2-stroke) or .48-.70 (4-stroke)
Radio:  4 channel
Servos: 4 standard
Covering: two 6-foot rolls
Misc. Items: 10oz fuel tank and tubing, one pair 2ï¾¾" rubber treaded wheels, one 1" tailwheel, 3/32" and 5/32" wheel collars, 1/4-28 aluminum safety spinner, and assorted building and field equipment.
