Parkzones New Ultra Micro F4U Corsair


yes you read right it's here at last

http://www.modelflight.com.au/produc...NF-8638-6.html

Overview

It was an icon of U.S. military might during WWII – a weapon so devastating its foes referred to it as “Whistling Death”. Now the F4U Corsair is making a name for itself as the latest ParkZone Ultra Micro Series scale warbird that you can fly just about anywhere.

This micro is capable of sport aerobatics or slow touch-n-go’s, just like its larger park flyer brother, one of the most popular warbirds in the ParkZone line. It boasts great scale details like molded panel lines, a clear canopy, scale landing gear that allow you to enjoy the scale looks of this great WWII legend just about anywhere with the same flight characteristics you’ve come to expect from the park flyer model. Finer details such as a 3 bladed propeller and a choice of two decal sets (included) from two of WWII Corsair aces – “Pappy” Boyington and “Ike” Kepford add to the authenticity of the plane.

Available in both Ready-To-Fly and Bind-N-Fly completion levels, the ParkZone Ultra Micro Series F4U comes out of the box with the traditional tri-tone navy trim scheme, 4-Channel control, steerable tail wheel, and removable landing gear. Both the RTF & BNF come complete with Spektrum AR6400 DSM2 receiver so you can fly without the fear of interference in as little time as it takes to charge your included 150mAh Li-Po battery with its DC charger.

So excited for this one. Already have the Champ, Night Vapor, T28, P51, Su-26XP, 4 Site, and my wife just got me a Beast for Christmas. Now to work on convincing her that I need to preorder both of these...shouldn't be too hard I only wish they offered these new warbirds in a PNP like the 4 Site as I'm tired of having all these little Parkzone chargers as I use an iCharger206B w/ the harness to charge 6 1S bats at once and my entire fleet is going w/ Hyperion bats. Please Horizon give your most dedicated customers PNPs as I already have a bag full of these chargers!

Sold!

Only thing I don't like is the aileron servo placement, might be bad for grass belly landings. Need to make some light covers for them.

yes will cause issue's down the road I would bet....

also, the corasir is TINY at only 15", the mosquito at 20"

And with the slightly better charger setup(not much better tho..lol) my choice is made which to get of the new..
The Mosquito!

Can't wait till March!
