FMS must have a sh*tload of those freaky little men left somewhere because there's still not a better pilot figure (and he really gives me the creeps!)

No idea why people like this plane so much; the wings look downright rediculous. May fly as good as it does but still. What I DO love though is the wheel doors. Did I see correct and do they close as the wheel goes up (looks like some elastic band)?

I will do something like that on the FMS mustang too

..."the elevator issue"...

http://www.ready2fly.ch/shop/USER_AR...d49f3a79c6f945

Definitely not the case on the FMS version!!! That for me would rule out that version...!!!

On another subject...ok, the Chinese realized that the decals did not go along with the 3-bladed prop (Korea version, etc...) but what was over looked is that the airframe is an F4U-1D which is meant to have a 3-blader...but a different paint job! If they had just changed the decals for a late WWII version everything would have been ok. Now we again, and that goes for the FMS V2 as well, have a fantasy Corsair.

cheers
Uwe

PS: The ailerons should also not go all the way out to the end of the wing...FMS has this wrong as well! But this can be easily corrected!

the doors are pretty neat they each have their servo and no elastic band its all mechanical

Yellow Version?

Is the version listed on the site as "(Yellow)" actually the grey version with the yellow stripe?
