THE WARBIRD EVERYONE HAS BEEN WAITING FOR!
Despite the Corsair’s popularity, many modelers have been discouraged from flying one because of the time and expertise required to reproduce its distinctive gull wing. That all changes now – Top Flite proudly introduces a 50 cc Giant Scale Gold Edition™ F4U Corsair ARF!
Gold Edition ARF engineering makes it easy to enjoy the “bent-wing” bird in giant scale. Prebuilt of balsa, ply and aluminum, the center wing section is itself a masterpiece of time-saving design. With this and other Gold Edition advantages, Top Flite reduces months of building work to just hours of assembly.
Hidden mounting screws secure the painted fiberglass cowl, leaving the scale outline clean and untouched. A supplied 2-piece aluminum spinner hub further enhances the completed model’s appearance. Impressive scale details are everywhere. There are molded-in panel and cowl flap lines; a replica radial engine complete with pushrod tubes and spark plug wires; strut covers for the main gear; tailwheel doors that open and close; and much more.
Fully sheeted and covered in flat finish MonoKote®, the Gold Edition Corsair also includes painted fiberglass parts to create a seamless scale look. Matte finish decals add authentic markings and insignia. The Top Flite Giant Scale Corsair ARF makes this favorite fighter easier to enjoy than ever before!
“¢ Reinforced mounts for Robart® retractable landing gear are built-in.
“¢ Located on the inner wing panel, the main gear remain in place when the outer panels are removed and provide an easy way to “walk” the fuselage to and from the field.
“¢ The prehinged flaps on the center section and outer panel are linked with a phenolic tab. Once linked, the flaps in both panels work as one surface and require only one servo in each wing half.
“¢ Like the ailerons and elevators, the flaps are prehinged to reduce build time.
“¢ A fiberglass tail cone and fairing offer effortless scale looks and easy access to tail control linkages.
“¢ The Corsair’s cockpit interior includes a detailed instrument panel with recessed gauges – just add the pilot figure!
“¢ Includes “extras” such as a machined spinner, authentic wheels, a work/display stand and a foam work mat.
