Dynam F4U 2018
I have not flown this model yet, the finish looks superior compared to other foam warbirds. I don't like how the servos are epoxied into the model I'd rather they be ******* down to a servo plate. The ventilation for the electric motor could be improved. Over all it is a good looking model for the price.
Overall very good item.
Great looking model. Just finished the construction and all parts were there and in great condition. Did find that the instructions need a great amount of interpretation. The videos are also great but they also fail to tell you where to place the 1/2 oz of lead in the couling. The joining of the wing halves also could need some attention in the molding for a better fit. I am anticipating flying this aircraft.
Great plane for the money
I purchased the Corsair on sale for $125 but it's worth the full price. The plane has adequate power for scale maneuvers and looks great in the air; it's a real crowd pleaser doing low passes with the gear up. Speaking of which...retractable gear is a must for warbirds but the mechanism on the Corsair is wimpy and will fold up for just about any landing you try. I've gotten to the point where I take off from a fabric runway but I just leave the gear up and "belly in" into the soft grass with the gear up. It slows down nicely and this doesn't hurt the plane. I tell everyone it's a recreation of an actual wartime landing where the pilot lost hydraulics. I also leave the wing attached to the fuselage because the attachment doesn't seem like it will stand up to multiple removals and reattachments.

Need batteries and chargers ac/dc and transmitter
One elevator ripped off from the horizontal stabilizer from a minor collision while transporting, same with rudder and after only one smooth landing retracts not working properly any more!! No more Dynam products for me.
Great looking Poor connections
I purchased the Dynam F4U Corsair April 20th 2018. Maiden flight went so-so with the typical gear problems. The instructions were poor. Gear checked out just fine on multiple preflight tests. In the air they didn't work so well. Motion replaced the gear and linkage issues. Great service. Second flight was really bad. The control horns on both the elevator and rudder came loose. Not good. I (by luck) managed a minor crash that damaged the wing and broke off one of the gear mountings. the tail wheel also broke the connection inside the plane and I am not sure how to repair that. The control horn connections are really a joke for a larger airplane. the back plate is very brittle and each one broke when I tried to secure the control horn screws with lock nuts. Motion has been very responsive to my issues. I think it would be wise to include lock nuts for all the control service connections with each kit. I don't believe that I am the only one with these issues. Thank You Motion for your prompt responses. Ed Wilkins
Dynam F4U Corsair 1270 mm assembly instructions
I found the Corsair to be fairly easy to build but the instructions very poor in detail; especially the wiring diagram. I also found the receiver was missing in the packe.
Great Value and Great Looks!!!
You really get your moneys worth with this plane. I mean sure the servos are plastic geared and not of the highest quality but they function properly. The build can be completed in one evening if you really push it and once completed the plane really looks great. The paint finish is great but be careful with the apoxy or you will lose paint. Have not experienced problems with the retracts as others have reported but have noticed that this bird is indeed tail heavy. Just slide your battery all the way nose forward and add lead weights as needed. The wingtip lights look great as well. I believe older models had LEDs that appeared orangy but Dynam now includes an inline resistor pack that I believe takes care of this and gives the green and red light a better appearance. All-in-all I highly recommend this classis plane for anyone interested in getting a warbird. Thanks MotionRC.
