Really good when a factory can learn from their short comings.

They've not carried over issues from the FW-190. I wouldn't have bought one if there were any doubt. Of the choices for a Corsair in this size and price range, it holds it's own and then some. I'd been looking for an F4U -1A/D and with what had been turning up with the ParkZone version and it's landing gear issues, it was an easy choice. Plus, they really tidied up the construction with enclosed linkages and a few other details that make this one stand out.

It's not perfect, there are things that one would best make peace with as-is or repair. You must have gotten burned pretty good with disappointment over the 190 but I think you might be over-reacting as they've gotten it together with this one pretty well, i.m.o.
