Parkzone F4u Corsair " Whistling death". How do I make it whistle.

Ok I love my corsair. Handles wind great, flies slow, and I got it cheap. ($80) So in WW2 they called it the "Whistling death". I wanna make mine whistle. How? Please help!

Take one of the whistles out of one of those nerf footballs or things and glue it to the bottom of the fuse

When you do a low pass just press your tongue to the roof of your mouth and blow

Maybe try putting one of those plastic novelty whistles in the propwash?

Most of my planes seem to whistle by themselves. I just hear energy being wasted

Cut a small piece of " Ny Rod " or a plastic straw about 2 " long then flaten one end . Probably use a heat gun ( very carefully ) so that it can cool and hold its shape. Tape it to the bottom of your wing and see if it works. You may have to fiddle a bit to get it right. ENJOY !!! RED

"Coach whistle, tape it to the wing"

But take out the little ball inside that makes it "flutter" in sound.

Note:

Fly this by yourself. Your flying buddies will eventually want to either stomp the plane or kick your .

Been there with slope gliders.

Buy a pack of the whistling Nerf darts and mount them under the wings like bombs or missiles. You have to do about 30mph+ to for the whistles to work.

I also recall reading that the Stuka "whistle" was deliberate, as a psychological "fear factor".
