The Famous F4U Corsair in a totally new style! The HobbyKing F4U Corsair is a very neatly designed EPOparkflyer. This Plug-n-Fly R/C plane comes with a brushlessoutrunner, ESC and servos all pre-installed. All you need is a 2S battery and receiver. Build time is around 15 minutes and does not require glue. The tough EPO construction keeps the model bouncing back for more and the strong 2607 outrunner motor provides plenty of power on as little as a 1,000mAh 2S LiPo.
No warbird low wing is a good beginner price, stick with the bixler will give you a good start and when you master that then move to low wings or scale models, as cheap is it if you crush it on the first flight as a beginner will it gets expensive, good luck.
Depends on the size you want and how much you want to spend. More money will get you a bigger plane that's easier to fly, and more expensive to crash. *-)
I'd look at the nine eagles micros for starters...the P-47 is a good one. Comes with a radio...tough as nails...cheap parts...and even 4 channels (includes ailerons). Three channel planes (tail control only) are easier to fly...but get boring fast.

Stock propulsion is more than fine. This plane has a small rudder and CG recent on windy conditions. If you put 3S, bigger ESC you'll get higher speeds, but compromising manouverability. Make sure you retape hinges of control surfaces then.
Rafael, Tunigy, T-nano-tech and Zippy batteries of 2S 1000 to 1300 mah come with XT60 connectors. ESC comes with JST connector type, so make sure you got an adapter -Producto ID: XT60-JSTF- or you build your own by using a XT60 male attached to a JST female in order to connect this to your batts.
two servos for ail and one in elev? Does one half elevator go up and other go down like normal ail? (see photos) I don`t understand this plane, someone could explain me the control surfaces of this plane? Excuse my bad english!!
I have ordered mine, it's a grate model. Spectacular flying and really simple. Two servos for ailerons as normal and one servo with a Y connection for each half elevator, and more, inside the cockpit there is a place to put one servo for rudder, just cut the upper line in the rudder, and install horn, clevis and push rod included in the kit. So, take off and enjoy
Javier, infiero por tu nombre que hablas casteyano, asi que traduzco la respuesta que te di. Un servo para cada aleró*n conectados al mismo canal y un servo para profundidad con una conecció*n en forma de Y, de esta manera las dos conecciones que ves en la foto se mueven siempre en el mismo sentido. Ademá*s tiene espacio para instalar servo de direcció*n y solo debes cortar la linea superior del timon para que tenga movimiento. Solo hay que tener cuidado en el centrado y si ya tienes experiencia con un trainer, este es un buen modelo para continuar ya que tiene un hermoso vuelo.
Gracias Venado. Nunca vi una conexió*n de y de metal. Pero lo describiste muy bien. Probable que lo compre para aparcar mi cessna 747 pero dudo entre la nostalgia de la wwII y entre la espectacularidad del mx2 epp.
Javier, dos datos para que tengas en cuenta si compras este o cualquier modelo que sea mas nervioso que un entrenador. Para los primeros vuelos inicialos con lanzamiento a mano y busca un lugar con bastante hierba espesa y suave (y no olvides comprar hé*lices de repuesto). Y lo otro para tener en cuenta es que compres cinta para reforzar bisagras en este tipo de modelos (Producto ID: 9171000115), evitará* que con el uso prolongado se rasguen o desprendan las superficies de control (la cinta debe copiar toda la superficie del abisagramiento impreso en el material. Suerte y buenos vuelos.
I am thinking of buying this model. Can anybody tell me if the 1300mah battery will fit? It has dimensions of 75 x 34 x 12 while the 1000mah is 70 x 35 x 13 i.e. slightly thinner but longer?
Also there HK UTube video shows this model being hand launched with no undercarriage. I note the picture on the web site shows it as having an undercarriage. Wouldn't the propeller be broken quite frequently with belly landings?
Mike, the original recommended battery was 800mah. 1000mah is the upgrade. The cockpit won't seat properly if the battery is too long. Also, on this plane you want to push the battery as far forward as possible, as it is a little tail heavy.
Yes, you can hand launch it, and land w/o destroying the prop. Just make sure you shut it down completely before it touches down. GET THE EXTRA PROP!!
I've had three of this model... great fun! Good luck!
Personally I would buy this over the AT-6 at $44.95. The AT-6 has a shorter wingspan (750MM vs 800MM) and the Corsair's gull wing will give you a bit more stability. See Mark's reply to Evans below. Mark is correct... if this is your first plane, you probably shouldn't buy a warbird. Rather, find a Cessna 182 or other trainer.
OK, I think you'll enjoy the Corsair. The wing loading is great... unlike, for instance, a P-40 wing which narrows to point. You've got to keep the air speed up as with any plane... it won't fly like your gliders, but you will find it really stable with adequate speed. Very predictable... no surprises. Also, it is easy to make repairs on this model... which is important if you're as lousy a pilot as I am! Mine is in need of repair right now. It flew well... I didn't pilot so well! LOL
Evans, I would NOT fly a corsair or any low wing fighter as my first plane. Get a high wing trainer and fly that for a while first. Note that I said High Wing Trainer. All high wing planes are not trainers. You want one that is light and capable of slow flight.
mine will not pull out of a fast dive, I even modified the elevator to full span, no luck, it just wouln't. Crashed and now a write off? It seem there is not enough horizontal stabilizer authority. I'm puzzled!
i have flown 3 batteries through mine this morning its a little rocket, with the sticks neutral I have about 3mm of up elevator this gives a smooth level flight as at first I had to hold up in but I have adjusted the clevis and presto its such a good flier I will be ordering another one
lol be a speck in the sky at 1000 feet its a park flyer 800mm ,2s in wind over 15kph is struggling to climb , 3s is better in wind , my TX will send it out of sight ,but what,s the point ? most good tx rx these days are good for 2-4ks or more well and truly out of sight !
This flies great with AR6100e which is compatible with any dsm2 and dsmx radio... Regarding spare parts, the prop use gws 8/6, the motor shaft bends on hard crash so in that case cut the shaft and use aluminium 3mm spinner which holds the remaining shaft easily...easy fixing with hot glue Amy damage but rest cheaper to buy another plane so I guess hk don't stock spare parts for this size and priced plane.. Hope is helpf ul
got here today after 16 days travel from hong kong. i love it have not flown due poor conditions in the southeast U.S.. hope HOBBYKING sends some stock to our WH soon. i want both versions now that i have seen it in person!
Should work without problems. Planes of that size easily carry 3s1300mAh batteries. Maybe you have to modify the battery duct a bit for fitting the battery. But it doesn't look like. Should be enough space. Pay attention not to use a 3s with the same prop, you might burn the motor or esc!
The mini warbird series of FMS model. The feature has gone out well though mysterious coloring. The linkage parts are attached though the rudder doesn't operate in the standard. There is no room in power, and it stalls and it has crashed because of recovery when 2S Lipo of the recommendation was piled up. The airplane driven easily as long as it takes care. The vertical climb becomes possible, too, if it changes to 3S Lipo.
Ce corsair est gnial, a vole facilement, mais attention, les commandes sont hyper sensibles, vaut mieux mettre un peu d'expo, le manque de drive se fait sentir tres vite, donc, conseil, ajouter un servo pour drive, tout est prvu pour le raccord drive dans le kit. superbe machine, tres content.

I expected this little girl to be a real cruzy little park flier n & quite dosile to fly, boy was i wrong. I absolutly luv this plane. The foam isn't flash, rudder was bent i had to cut out & make a hatch to get the batt. in, relieve the hinges as they are very stiff, & put in a rudder servo, but It was all worth the effort. it's seat of the pants grit your teeth fly n, i luv it.
I'm running all standard, but using a 3cell 1000mah.C of G is spot on with the 3cell in the middle of the batt. well. Roll rate is super fast, its fast to fly, is super slippery in the air, & lands @ walking pace (just keep those wings level) I'm about to order 2 more coz i know im gunna hit hard @ some stage, its the first plane i grab now (i have over 20) the extra work is worth in, NOT 4 BEGINERS.

Sweet warbird. I have a full review on youtube that has great flight footage and 2s/3s prop recommendations. Check it www.link
