A-1 Skyraider 1600mm w/Retracts, Flaps & Air Brakes (PNF)

A-1 Skyraider 1600mm w/Retracts, Flaps & Air Brakes (PNF)

The A-1 Skyraider came too late to see action in WW2 but proved it's worth as an outstanding ground attack aircraft in both the Korean and Vietnam conflicts, able to deliver a formidable punch and withstand a considerable amount of battle damage and still get home, the A-1 had an impressive service record until being eventually replaced by the A-10 as the US forces principal ground attack aircraft.

This impressively large Skyraider is packed with features, made from tough EPO foam, this large and super scale warbird is easy and fast to assemble, especially as all servo's, the ESC and powerful brushless outrunner motor are all pre-fitted. The Skyraider comes with twist and turn retracts and functioning gear doors, in addition, the tailwheel is also retractable, flaps are fitted for slow, controlled landings and for the final scale touch, servo operated air brakes have been pre-installed.

The A-1 has plenty of thrust from the massive and very scale 4 blade prop for realistic climb outs and this great size warbird also has superb slow fly performance for realistic scale flight, "armed" to the teeth, there is no doubt, this Skyraider looks like it means business!

Hi What retracts did you put in? I have had a bad time - the retracts are too light for the weight of the plane. It fly's well though. Thanks

I have two of these and they fly best when using 5S lipo 4000mah. I did change the retracts and added a carbon strip in the elevator.

If i can fly 1100mm f40u corsair, can i fly this one? Is it easy to fly?

I would buy this in a heartbeat if I could see the availability of spare parts. All I can see are prop blades, crossover and a spindle of some sort. I think that it would be a headache to operate this model with no spares availability. What's the go Guys???

I receive my model yesterday. I spent some time before I came here to write review. The plane is awesome, very nice indeed. Here we come to the retracts problems. I have to say that this is the first plane I am buy which have retracts, so I am finding it difficult to install the retracts. Still I think this is value for money. I shall take heed of what has been said and before I fly it I shall see to it that all corrections are made. Value for money boys.

Hello my friends. As I promised here is my review after setting it and test flying it. I tell you the plane takes off almost on its own. it flies scale like and you can do loops etc. Use always power, half throttle, when you come to land keep the throttle to quarter and thus or just a little less untill you touch the ground. I fly on tarmac my friends. It lands ok. So far no problems with the retracts, but make sure you avoid heavy landings. I say again value for money and I do not regret buying it. One negative thing I noticed the kind of paint it is used sort of sticks a little with you fingers and it is evident that the cowl was placed before the paint had dried completely, hence very difficult to remove the cowl. We shall see hat later. Retracts, flaps and air brakes work perfectly well. I can understand the difficultly to take off and land on grass if it is not really short.

Firstly this bird is big! If you haven't got room in your hanger, get rid of 2 other planes to make room. It looks sooo good in the air & the way that 4 blade prop carves the air it sounds good too. It has awesome scale detail too. I upgraded the retracts as the originals only have small motors & failed after a while. This is a plane you'll have in your hanger for a long time due it's toughness & how well it flies
