Hangar 9 F4U-1A Corsair 20cc ARF

HAN2795-250The F4U Corsair with it’s bent gull shaped wing has an unmistakeable outline.  Developed for the US Navy in the early part of world war two it had a rocky start as a carrier based plane but excelled when flown from ground bases by the US Marines.  The Corsair helped turn the tide against Japan by besting the Zero in almost every aspect of flight and aerial combat.

The Hangar 9® F4U-1A Corsair 20cc ARF is a model that honors the Vought triumph in a way that makes scale RC easy. Its scheme matches the famous “Jolly Rogers” U.S. Navy fighting squadron (VF-17) that operated in the Pacific theatre in 1943–44 under the command of John “Tommy” Blackburn. Its color and detail are extensive thanks to an attention to outline accuracy and printed UltraCote® covering. Not only do the flat finish and feathered edges of the appropriate color lines convey a sense of realism, the quality of wood construction delivers a model with long-lasting appeal.
