E-flite® F4U-4 Corsair 1.2m Bind-N-Fly® Basic
The 18-cylinder radial engine hung on the first Chance Vought Corsair cranked out an awe-inspiring 2,000-horse power. Later versions could develop 2,380-horse power, which meant more ammo could be packed in and hung on. Better still, those 380 extra horses meant that facing the enemy and making it back home was far more likely. With the new E-flite® F4U-4 Corsair 1.2m Bind-N-Fly® Basic you can have that powerful feeling with an RC recreation in U.S. Marine Corps VMFT-20 training squadron colors.
A big four-blade propeller, functional three-panel flaps, electric 90-degree rotating retracts and muscular outlines are just the highlights of its authentic feature list. Construction with Z-Foam™ material keeps the overall weight low and delivers a level of airframe durability that’s ideal for everyday flying. But the exclusive feature that makes this definitive warbird the choice for your everyday flying is AS3X™ technology. That’s because the compact Spektrum™ AR636A DSMX® receiver installed features an AS3X system that’s specially tuned to give you rock-solid flight performance similar to the experience you’d have with an expertly set up model many more times its size. Whether you’re an intermediate or advanced pilot, this Corsair is a sure to help you enjoy what flying a one-of-a-kind warbird is all about.

Why does the SAFE version of the Corsair have a combat paint scheme and the non-SAFE version has a trainer paint scheme?
So the trainer isn't a trainer and the non-trainer's a trainer.
Price is decent, though.
What I've been dismissing, as well as lots of others here, is what the large hobby shop chains stock and what sells for them. They are who have the strongest input to HH I suspect and who greet J.Q. P. on a daily basis and have a feel for what will be appealing.
So, here's this new Corsair with a snazzy new paint scheme that's fresh and new. Much more attention getting than the over-done scheme of Boyington's airplane. Hello, a new offering, new bread and butter..!
On a different track, somehow, the F4U-4s have come into a dominant status among the makers. I really like all Corsairs but it makes me wonder. Dynam, FMS, Unique Models (sold by H-K), Durafly, and now this one. I suppose it could have to do with the slightly longer nose, easier to balance.
You'd think they'd be willing to do something different tho. Even if it's something that's still commonly modeled.
Look at the Durafly Spitfire. The entire first batch sold out in 20 minutes in all warehouses..
The demand is there. Build it and they will come.
