@ Ldm - Early May is the release schedule.

@ Kaikokid - Yes by the looks of the photos they have fixed the tail so it has the scale stab/rudder line (so it's a lightning bolt shape, not straight like the pre-production model).

@ twiztidbowler - Yes it does seem the prop is a little undersized. I'll ask about that.

That color scheme will really pop with a bit of weathering!

Not to my knowledge...The usual distributors to expect are PW-RC.com and RC Castle for China (higher shipping but A+ customer service after the purchase) and Banana Hobby for USA (less shipping but iffy customer care).

As for the scheme, yes, weathering will really look outstanding as you can see with Ldm's...I can't wait to see what Brandonmoon will do to her as well!

As for me, my Corsair's just gotta be blue so a repaint will be in my future.

I Agree, 3 tone blue for me as well. I noticed they did it in the "D" version, But I'm not real keen on thier choice of color scheme

I like a deep midnight blue on a Corsair. I actually painted my 1400MM FMS Corsair gloss black and I had a lot of compliments on it. Looked really dark blue actually. I won't go so dark for this one but a nice navy blue.

Or this one which is alittle different then the FMS 1400mm scheme. I like that one half elevator is blue and the other is white and on the bottom where one side of the stab tip is blue

Hmmm, lets see... That prop should be just about right for my 1430mm Airfield Corsair!

How about the tail hook? Anybody going to string a cable across the field and do an "carrier landing"? I would want a video of that!
