NICE knowin' ya but, hey - what a way to go.... Love the Corsair.
Two in my hangar.
One CMP flies about every weekend for the last 6 months and an ESM on the assembly table. Love the way they look and fly.

I've had a few Kyosho models = all good.

Ok seller swapped corsairs and all is good. This looks like a winner to me. The wings are wood build up w monocote. The gear doors are fiberglass and ca hinged. The flaps are already hinged and deploy with no resistance. The have the "scallops" connecting them. The top of the fuse comes off so no switches sticking outside, the pilot is installed already with a semi nice cockpit. He does look a little cartoonish but I can live with that. The retracts look really sturdy, kyosho has never failed me before with gear and I'm counting on that. The tail gear is not retractable but is a nice strut with shock. Overall impressed and if this flies as well as any of their other planes it's sure to be a must buy for all us warbird fans. You get a lot of extras in this ATF, way to go Kyosho!!!
