Few World War II fighters inspired awe in both friend and foe like the F4U-1A Corsair. Capable of speeds in excess of 400 mph, it left a ghostly howl in its wake that earned it the name "Whistiling Death" among enemy troops. For those under its protection, however, there was no sweeter sound on earth. The ParkZone® F4U-1A Corsair plane is a remarkably scale tribute to this warbird icon that's a blast to fly. Most of its details, including the paint scheme, are already applied for you. A set of bolt-on drop tanks and two sets of decals are included. In the air, its potent 15-size, 950Kv brushless motor will deliver all the power you need for high-speed strafing runs and spirited sport aerobatics. For a truly spectacular Corsair experience, add the optional flaps and E-flite® electric retracts.* The model has been designed to make installing these options quick and easy, and its Spektrum™ AR600 receiver has all the channels you'll need. Watch John Redman as he walks you through the simple installation of installing E-flite rotating retracts in the ParkZone Corsair. In no time you will be pulling the gear up after takeoff for that classic warbird flight.
