Dynam F4U Corsair 1270mm (50") Wingspan - PNP - DY8953PNP

Northrop Grumman A-10
The Chance Vought F4U Corsair was an American fighter aircraft that saw service primarily in World War II and the Korean War. Some Japanese pilots regarded "Whistling Death" 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. It quickly became the most capable carrier-based fighter-bomber of World War II, serving almost exclusively as a fighter-bomber throughout the Korean War and during the French colonial wars in Indochina and Algeria.

F4U Coursair

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.

Falling apart

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.

Beautiful plane

Love this plane, it needs a lot of weight in the nose, I have about two and half ounces of those stick on lead weights. Keep the throws down on the elevator as well or it will be very sensitive. The plane flies and looks amazing in the air, it's not very fast but it just looks so **** good up there!! She can do just about all the aerobatics you want out of a warbird. I did have the retract problems, I had to land her on her belly, the good thing is that she flies real light so you can slow her down quite a bit before a stall. MRC as usual provides excellent service and sent me a replacement set. From what I gather on the internet the FMS retracts for the 1400mm Corsair fit with a little modification. If the retracts weren't so problematic I'd give this plane a solid 5 stars

Add weight

I got this plane second hand from a two pilots who could not fly it, I added a bunch of weight and I mean a lot of weight in the nose and it flys like a dream, just watch you speed on landing because it will stall quickly if you get behind the aircraft
