ParkZone Warbird: F4U Corsair In Action
Once again our Buddy Dave from Horizon Hobby has granted us with the information that we have all been waiting for...
Here is a quote from his post on the original thread dedicated to the Parkzone F4U Corsair on 8/28/08:

Corsairs are Shipping
I'm happy to report that RTF Corsairs are shipping today!

We made August....YESSSSSS!

I think it was guapoman2000. I heard he chartered a business jet, bailed out over the Pacific in a frogman suit, and helped push the container ship a little faster by paddling like mad.

PNP will be shipping either today or tomorrow.

This post will be used as a summary for the entire thread. If any new info surfaces please send me a PM so I can add it.

This is what we know so far (besides the info found on the Horizon Hobby website)

Overall Review
  • It looks awesome
    It flies like the T-28, but a little faster, and will slow down better
    Weighs 1-2 ounces less than the T-28
    Fuselage is thinner than T-28
    Cowl is stronger than the one on the T-28
    The included 1800mAh lipo weighs about 1 ounce less and is smaller than "older" parkzone 1800 lipos
    Ground Handling is good
    It does not like a cross wind, but will fly inverted, roll, and knife edge real nicely.
    It's a keeper!

FYI: The touch up paint that is suggested in the manual does not match very well at all.

Turbonut was the lucky guy who got to be the first one to receive his Corsair. His pictures are in a few posts below.

Got mine today...Pictures and video coming. Will post some inflight action in the coming days with my Flycamone2 - would love to do some inflight dogfighting with another PZ warbird.

Chuck. I agree :-( I might ask for permission in a day or two to delete most of the first posts so we don't carry all of the same stuff into this one. Sorry. I got so excited that I couldn't help but get this one going right away hoping that pics would flood the first page!

#15 ty_horn Aug 28, 2008 08:08 PM

Does anyone have a problem with me deleting posts 3-10, and 12-15 so we can get some pics in the first real post???
