TX LPU: Custom 50" F-4U Corsair, one of a kind PNP
This is one of the nicest pieces I've put together - It is an F-4U Corsair, based on a limited production run model sent to me from overseas. I've put a lot of work into this piece to make it one of a kind - Not available anywhere else but right here!
-Brushless outrunner power, 4-bladed HUGE prop
-High Quality 45A ESC with BEC
-Pro-grade multiplex wiring harness in the wing for an easy single connection, wing screws on/off
-Full metal electric retractable landing gear including retracting tailwheel with steering (Hard to find that!)
-Crash resistant EPO foam construction, water-slide decals
-Custom 3" HUGE main wheels with alloy hubs
-Custom paintwork on landing gear, wheel wells, doors, exhaust pipes, engine, rockets and much more!
-3 Custom antennas
-6 Handcrafted metal machine guns and 1 pitot tube
-Rockets and drop tanks
-Protective coat of Water-Based Polycrylic for showroom shine
-Controls are: Rudder, Elevator, Aileron, Flaps, Retracts, Throttle
Buyer will need a 4-cell battery and a radio set (4-6 channels) to fly. Plane has no accidents and is in excellent condition overall.
You'll never find another Corsair quite like this one, I can assure you of that! 50" wingspan is just right - Not too big, not too small.
$160, no trades please. LOCAL PICKUP ONLY, SAN ANTONIO TEXAS.
Thanks for looking and good luck!

It seems that every time I plan to drive through San Antonio, you don't have any recently listed planes. Then some really nice ones pop up when I have no plans on driving through.
I always take the 1604 loop and pass that RC field on the pond. It looks like a really neat place to fly, but I imagine that the mosquitos can get pretty bad.

The pond does look like an interesting spot, but all of my planes get the smooth pavement treatment for T/O and LDG, so that field doesn't fit the bill. If I ever got a seaplane though, it would be perfect!
All PM's replied to - Corsair is still available as of now.

After the trivial process of assembling the aircraft I flew it a couple of times noting that I wanted a more aggressive prop and a 2200 ma battery. I've ordered a 10x8 for it but back to the story. I was flying reconnoissance off the edge of the neighborhood in a construction zone that had built paved roads for a new neighborhood, but the housing crisis kept the houses from showing up leaving me with my choice of perfect runways. It was a perfect day with gusts to 10mph, and I was showing out for my girlfriend when I found the paved deck with the corsair.
Due to pilot error I dropped the aircraft while doing barrel roles at slow speed and it hit the paved tarmac at 30 degrees down angle and the aircraft quickly came apart as my girlfriend cried 'what happened.' In slow motion I watched as the main-wing came off flipping through the air and both landing gear wheels came off the wing and went into the grass off the side of the pavement. The fuselage jumped up off the pavement and sailed like a football into the grass at which point I realized my corsair had just died an agonized death. But get this....
The recovery team was sent out to collect up the remains of the aircraft and I discovered that the main-wing was fine, and the fuselage was also fine. The tail was perfect. All said and done I'd lost the cowling, the prop, skinned up the spinner, the plastic thing that holds the right landing gear was bent, and that my friends was it! All of the aircraft's main structures were intact and I spent 20 bucks on replacement parts and she's back. The motor mount and motor are amazing.
The scratches on the spinner said this baby touched down its nose and cowling on pavement and survived. This is unheard of. Great aircraft but definitely beef up the main-wing mount with a little balsa and some CA. And get a 10x8 prop. I think I"m going to turn up the dual rates on the ailerons as well. This is probably the greatest low-wing trainer of all time out of the box. Now I have a Yak 54 to impress my girlfriend with but the corsair is the most survivable aircraft I've ever seen in 25 years of flying. It holds that special place in my arsenal and I love how it flies.
