Hangar 9 F4U-1D Corsair 60cc

They had these on the ground at Joe Nall and man they looked great!

Overview Designed to operate from aircraft carriers and/or land-based facilities, the F4U-1D Corsair was a force to be reckoned with to the Japanese during WWII. With its gull wing design, impressive looks and power, the Corsair was one of the most recognizable WWII aircraft.

LIsten to my my interview with David Payne of Horizon Hobby. We discuss all the cool features of the Hangar 9 60cc Corsair.

The Hangar 9® F4U-1D Corsair is a giant-scale masterpiece for 60cc power plants that delivers scale details worthy of being called competition grade. Its scale outline, impressive scale appearance, and Hangar 9 performance, make this an exciting warbird to show off at the field. The construction is primarily wood with fully balsa-sheeted areas, but the outer wing panels and control surfaces (except the three-panel flaps) feature exposed ribs like was done with the full-scale fighter. The three-piece wing features a robust fiberglass structure in the center which houses the custom main retracts built by Robart Mfg. (sold separately). A retractable tail wheel option is available from Hangar 9 as well as aluminum spoke wheels that set off this amazing model in an inspirational way.

Out of the box, it comes finished in genuine UltraCote® covering, fiberglass cowling and wing center section that are painted to match. You also get scale details like a full depth cockpit, hidden tail and flap control linkages, scale rib detail, scale 3-panel flaps, dummy radial engine, sliding canopy and so much more. Optional scale accessories include scale tail wheel, main wheels and retracts that operate with pneumatic or electric mechanisms, droppable bombs or fuel tanks, scale 3-blade display prop and optional navigation lights. A wide range of choices are available for power; there’s the ease and economy of a 50–60cc two-stroke gas engine, sound and torque of a twin-cylinder 57cc four-stroke, or the realism of an Evolution 777 four-stroke radial. The hardware package included is very high-quality and complete as possible no matter power system you favor so you can get to flying this magnificent warbird quickly.

Few World War II fighters inspired awe in both friend and foe like the F4U-1A Corsair. This impressive scale giant offers top gun scale looks, while delivering the Hangar 9 design reputation for superior flying performance.

Here are some specs:

  • Superb flying characteristics, plus an accurate scale outline
  • Convenient three-piece wing assembly with aluminum blade spar
  • Pitot tube, guns and leading-edge stall strip details

I just saw this today. Very nice looking and I can't wait to see some reviews. I was disappointed to not see a factory spec for EP though like the P-47.

...or the clean, quiet, efficient, powerful option of an electric setup. I agree, no option for electric power? Too bad.

It's a 30 lb. plane. Electric power in such large aircraft is still relatively rare.

No really. But I'm sure Horizon didn't give it the EP factory option because the Power 160 couldn't handle the extra 12lbs + of flying weight unlike the lighter (slightly smaller P-47) I'm sure a Rimfire 65cc or a Hacker A-150 could handle the wieght rather well.

Looks like they've been "sand bagging" their game in the market. "I feel a disturbance in the Force", some cool stuff is coming out soon. If this is any indication, we're all gonna be broke before Christmas..... again.

I did an old Combat Corsair from Great Planes similar to this one.... no where near as cool, but this one caught my attention for sure.

I've seen 2 CARF Corsairs running EP.
Getting the batteries forwards enough for CG was a little work.

Personally, if I were going to buy this plane, I would have to go with a radial engine...just because.

Just listened to the audio, 85", $999 MAP.

Product page, due July 2013

http://www.hangar-9.com/Products/Def...ProdID=HAN4760

51.75 oz/ft^2

Electric retracts $600
Aluminum wheels $100
Tail wheel $100

Seems reasonable, positioned well below a CARF I think.
Very similar to the Black Horse Corsair perhaps.

Wow, she's a beauty. Nice to see strong scale fidelity there. If I had the money I would get her with the radial but I am an electric flyer. Wish they had a EP version.

Not sure.
Most likely the Evolution, to make installation easier.

All my planes are now electric and my wife does not miss the days of glow fuel and castor oil, but I would make an exception for one fuel powered plane, which would be a Corsair.

This one just seems a bit heavy for some reason.

Isn't 52oz/ft2 a bit on the high side?

Only reason I mention it is that I was just on Mick Reeves website, and his 1:4.5 Hurricane comes in at only 15kg and thats 110" span compared to 85". WL I'd guess at about 40 oz. And thats with an electric setup. (12S 10AH apparently).

Not saying the Corsair is bad, it just surprised me, but then I don't fly models that size, so I could be totally wrong

Don't get hung up on the numbers, I got a close look at these at Nall and they fly well with all the power plants.

I put a bunch of pictures in the thread on this plane in the Fuel Warbird section.
