Ziroli F4U-1 Corsair RTF

I have a Ziroli Kit that was built 5 years ago. Never flown. This plane is ready to go (receiver ready). With air retracts (robart), gas engine (Zenoah) and all hardware mounted. It also has the cockpit detail kit (installed). This plane was built by a master craftsman and you will not find a nicer Corsair. Like I said this plane has never flown but has minor garage rash. Please go to www.ziroli.com for better details. It has so much on it I just don't have time to list. I am not a motivated seller just checking to see if there is interest. If you are interested in a completed and ready to fly plane then you should email me. Thanks for your interest and reviewing my listing. I am not a dealer just an experienced flyer wanting to move out of 1/5.3 scale. I will have pic's up in a bit.

$1599.00 plus shipping.


Wingspan-93" Length-72"
Weight-28 - 34 lbs Engine-62 - 85 cc gas
The giant scale F4U-1 Corsair plan set is 1/5.3 scale and consists of four large sheets that clearly illustrate all structure as well as showing installation of flaps and retracts. The F4U-1 Corsair plan shows the installation of Robart retracts, fixed wire gear, servos and generic 3-6 cu in engine and features one piece wing. The basic structures use conventional “modeling” tools and materials such as balsa and plywood, and the techniques are straightforward; easily accomplished by anyone with previous model building experience. There are many online building threads at www.rcuniverse.com forums and www.rcscalebuilder.com forums for Nick’s plans. Tech support is also available via email at www.ziroliplans.com or by phone 9:00 to 5:00 Mon - Fri EST 631-467-4765. The plan includes full-size templates for all the required parts allowing you to cut a complete “kit” before you start construction. If you don’t have the tools or time to cut your own kit Nick Ziroli Plans now carries a laser cut short wood kit for the F4U-1 Corsair plan that contains all the parts that you would otherwise have to cut by hand from balsa and plywood, it does not include sheet or stick wood or hardwood, balsa blocks. There are many kit cutters such as Precision Cut Kits that make a very fine full wood kit that contains all the sheet, stick wood and balsa, hard wood blocks and laser cut parts to build the complete model from our plans. The plans have a separate instruction guide and building notes on the plans. If you choose gear or an engine not shown on the plans you should have them on hand when you start construction to make any changes needed for mounting. Nick Ziroli Plans recommends covering the airframe with1oz fiberglass cloth and ZAP Z-poxy finishing resin and elevator and rudder with iron on cloth covering such as solartex.. Nick Ziroli designs are equally at home at the local sport flying field or the winner’s circle at prestigious scale events such as Top Gun and the Scale Master’s; you can add as much detail as you like. Nick Ziroli Plans has building and scale accessories available for the F4U-1 Corsair. Over the years, Nick’s designs have gained the enviable reputation for being among the most “flyable” giant scale models available.

Here are the pic's I promised. I know, why am I taking pic's of a plane on the ground? Well. I have had carpal tunnel surgery and cant lift this plane. I am the only one home and wanted to get some pic's out.

Nice looking plane. Looks like a really clean build and the price is more than fair.
I assume the wings are plug-in?
The damage looks to be an easy fix.
Good luck with the sale.

Thanks Randyman. I look forward to getting this plane in the air. But if it sells first even better. The wings are plug in. For the picture I wanted to show the finished product (wing). As for the price I just went with what I have in it.
