The FMS F4U-4 Corsair is a remarkably scale tribute to this warbird icon that's a blast to fly. Sporting a pair of 90 degree rotating retractable landing gear, fully functional split flaps, and it 's powerful motor spinning a 14x8 4 blad prop, you have everything you need for high-speed strafing runs and spirited sport aerobatics. Then you can drop the landing gear and finish off the flight with a slow gentle landing.
The Chance Vought F4U Corsair was a carrier-capable fighter aircraft that saw service primarily in World War II and the Korean War. From the first prototype delivery to the U.S. Navy in 1940, to final delivery in 1953 to the French, 12,571 F4U Corsairs were manufactured by Vought, in 16 separate models, it is the longest production run of any piston-engined fighter in U.S. history (1942–1953). It quickly became the most capable carrier-based fighter-bomber of World War II. Some Japanese pilots regarded it as the most formidable American fighter of World War II, and the U.S. Navy counted an 11:1 kill ratio with the F4U Corsair.
