FMS F4U Corsair V2 Blue 1700mm (67") Wingspan - KIT


FMS Giant 1700mm (67") Wingspan F4U Corsair Version 2 KIT (Airframe Only) - FMS043KIT

This 1700mm F4U Corsair V2 from FMS is truly one of our favorite larger warbirds.  It's hard to beat the profile of the famous gull wing bird coming in on final approach using the full 3-stage flaps.  It has to be considered one of the better views in all of RC flying.  The F4U Corsair has a docile yet commanding presence in the air.  Anyone who has plenty of experience flying the 1400mm series of warbirds who are looking to get into the larger 1700mm class of warbirds may want to consider this fantastic addition to the FMS line.  The FMS 1700mm F4U Corsair is sure to please even the most discerning RC warbird lover.  Although this warbird demonstrates some trainer-like flight qualities, we recommend advanced pilots with plenty of warbird flight training due to its size and power.  

The Chance Vought F4U Corsair was an American fighter aircraft that saw service primarily in World War II and the Korean War. Demand for the aircraft soon overwhelmed Vought's manufacturing capability, resulting in production by Goodyear and Brewster: Goodyear-built Corsairs were designated FG and Brewster-built aircraft F3A. 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, in the longest production run of any piston-engined fighter in U.S. history (1942–53).

The Corsair was designed as a carrier-based aircraft. However its difficult carrier landing performance rendered the Corsair unsuitable for Navy use until the carrier landing issues were overcome when used by the British Fleet Air Arm. The Corsair thus came to and retained prominence in its area of greatest deployment: land based use by the U.S. Marines. The role of the dominant U.S. carrier based fighter in the second part of the war was thus filled by the Grumman F6F Hellcat, powered by the same Double Wasp engine first flown on the Corsair's first prototype in 1940. The Corsair served to a lesser degree in the U.S. Navy. As well as the U.S. and British use the Corsair was also used by the Royal New Zealand Air Force, the French Navy Aéronavale and other, smaller, air forces until the 1960s. 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.

After the carrier landing issues had been tackled it quickly became the most capable carrier-based fighter-bomber of World War II. The Corsair served almost exclusively as a fighter-bomber throughout the Korean War and during the French colonial wars in Indochina and Algeria.

IMPORTANT: This is the kit version which does NOT include the motor, ESC, or servos. However, it does include the new FMS-designed servoless retracts.

TECH NOTE: The new design of wing connector is a single in-line bus into which the various servos from both wings connect, instead of the former two part wing connector design using part numbers ST137 and ST138. The ST137 and ST138 multi-wing connectors are now optional and must be purchased separately under the Spare Parts tab or by clicking the links above for pilots who want to use this older design.
