New Product
Dynam F4U Corsair

This is the New Dynam F4U Corsair available at Nitroplanes.com. Like all Dynam products, the quality is really nice and the value is outstanding! Last week, this Corsair sold for $101 with Nitroplanes 15% discount on all new products. Outstanding deal! What a great way to introduce pilots to scale models at a low price.

I spent time painting/detailing this model and it really made a difference for me. The cockpit was painted black, pilot's face was painted skin tone. Painted the prop and added FMS decals. The only addition to the model was applying hinge tape to the control surface hinge points. My elevator was split on one side. Hinge tape is cheap assurance! This Corsair flies on a 14.8V 2200mAh battery but can easily take a 2650mAh pack.

Best,
Tony

My plane just arrived, and have one question... In line between the ESC and Receiver is a piece of electronics that is in black heat shrink with no explanation. Anyone have a clue as to what this may be?

Hi sparkie624,

I'm not sure without seeing a photo. Dynam seems to be including spare props with their new aircraft. My Dynam Waco also had a spare.

Good luck,
Tony

Sparkie,

Looks like a BEC. If you don't already know, BEC is a battery ellimination circuit. This circuit powers the servos and receiver.

It does not really look like a BEC, besides, it does not have any Voltage in connections. Will have to do more research. It really looks like more of a filter.

Thinking of purchasing. Can flaps be added to this model?
