Parkzone T-28 vs Parkzone Corsair

Hi Guys,

debating whether to get a T-28 or newly modified Parkzone corsair. I like the option of flaps and retracts on new Corsair. Which one will be a better choice? Does the new Corsair fly better than the old model? I saw that the motor on new corsair has been upgraded to size 15.

Please advice.

thanks

My parkzone F4U-1A is probably my favorite PZ bird (and I have them all or nearly)

There is a little work to do on the corsair, but well worth it

Go with the corsair then.


But you'll have to rehinge flaps, and rudder, at least.

Glue the wing attachement too

+1 for the corsair.

as for flight compared to the old corsair, ask around the dedicated Corsair thread here on the Warbird forum. someone who has flown both should be able to tell you.

I haven't flow the old own but the new one is really pleasant to fly.

Landing with full flaps is amazing

i have not flown the corsair but i believe an 1100mm foamie can be landed without flaps. have flown the PZ spitfire off grass and airstrip and that bird is faster than the corsair. spitty handles fine without flaps (even on 4s). so you should be fine too with the corsair.

i think Shung is only saying that he enjoys using the flaps.

Yep. With flaps you get a real scale looking landing... Slow and with a good rate of descent.

It also stalls symmetrically with flaps (no tip stall noticed) so you can really simulate carrier landings.

Let me find you a video

Edit :

Here is an old video of my corsair. Exploring all the flight envelope in a scale flight

The "old" corsair does fly like a trainer. Quite pleasant.

I don't have any experience with the "new" one, but I would trust what Shung says.

The corsair is known to wing stall easier at low speeds and the tail dragger is harder to land and takeoff with more prop strikes on hard landings.

If you are new to the hobby or to 4 channel planes I would go with the t-28


If you already can land, flying is easy, than the corsair might be more interesting.


Btw I cut flaps and retracts into my t-28 when I was flying it regularly.
