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.

AS3X® Technology
The advanced AS3X® (Artificial Stabilization – 3-aXis) system is what helps give this model an incredibly solid look in the air and feel to you at the controls. As a result, your workload to fly smoothly is significantly reduced, making a warbird like this Corsair the best flying experience possible.
Electric Rotating Retracts
The installed main landing gear feature reliable electric retraction with covers over the steel struts and outer gear doors that enhance the scale appearance.
Functional 3-Panel Flaps
A light wing loading, plus operational flaps, gives this warbird a significantly greater flight envelope including the ability to takeoff in shorter distances and land more slowly.
Brushless Power System
The power system features a 15-size outrunner with 850Kv and a 40-amp ESC that when combined with your 2200mAh 3S 25C Li-Po battery delivers outstanding thrust.
Lightweight Z-Foam™ Material
Construction with durable Z-Foam™ material offers the ability to replicate complex detail with greater accuracy while providing a lightweight airframe that’s easy to maintain.

  1. Mark Kruse

    A great plane to fly, thanks to the help of Michael.

  2. Greg Wilson

    This is the best flying warbird I have owned in my 7 years in the hobby. It required a bare minimum of assembly and flew perfectly straight out of the box without even requiring any trimming. Any doubts I had about how well it would perform on only 3s were quickly dispelled after the first flight. It steps out at a respectable rate of knots when the throttle is opened up but is just as happy cruising around at slower scale speeds.
    The AS3X makes it very locked in and stable even on windy days. Landings are so easy even a novice will look like a pro. The flaps aren’t really necessary but look great when deployed. Flies quite happily on anything from a 2200 -4000mah lipo. Just adjust the battery position to maintain correct CG.
    Top marks to Eflite and thanks to Michael for his helpful and friendly service.

    Cheers, Greg
