I would describe this one best as a fourth plane option, especially if you don't have someone to trim (tune) it for you so it flies well. If you do, then this might make a decent third plane if you have mastered your aileron trainer.

Parkzone F4U-1A Corsair Parkflyer WWII Warbird RC Plane Unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Flight Review (15 min 25 sec)


My review notes for the F4U-1A Corsair, which is the newest Parkzone F4U Corsair are as follows:

Cons:
- The paint is very fragile
- The bomb drop fasteners are weak
- Landing gear hardware could be better
- It needs a lot of trim out of the box

Pros:
- Nice looking plane
- Upgradable
- Flies nice once trimmed
- Takes off on grass with stock landing gear

Takeaway: This is a very nice RC plane, but it is not a T-28 Trojan! This plane was flown 100% stock with the exception of flying with a Gforce 2200mAh lipo battery.

This is a great plane to have fun to rip through the sky with. I hope you enjoy the video and the turbo charger used during take-off!

This video contains the FPV flying 1880 Skywalker RC plane doing stunts and tricks over berry fields just outside of Lynden in Ferndale, Washington.

There is no actual FPV flight in this video using this FPV RC place, but it is a great display of how capable this plane is in the air.

Here is a video of my friend flying his newest plane. The thing is HUGE and is a great platform for FPV flight:

I haven't had much time lately to fly, but I was able to take this out recently for a flight and it was as fun as ever ripping through the sky!
