Have not seen this just got the Phoenix Spitfire from them last week last week.

Appears to be something new.

It doesn't appear to have them. I think that they opted not to implement them due to the complexity of the Corsair's flap setup. It is still a good looking model

The propeller looks beyond ridiculous at that tiny size. I still don't know why people go for tiny props on scale planes when electric motors have so much power it's not funny.

Apart from that issue, it looks like a decent model.

That is the GP world for you. Most of these planes are converted GP only planes to GP/EP. I was surprised that they actually put a 3 blade propeller on for that photo they supplied. Most of the time it is a 2 blade on everything.

For electric power, a setup that could swing a 14" or 15" 3 or 4 blade propeller would look and perform great on this model
