I'd love too, but unfortunately that's too expensive to contemplate. I can get the slightly larger Dynam (for which parts can be sourced more easily too) for ~130 delivered from a UK source, whereas at current exchange rates the Unique Models version is ~125 plus international shipping, VAT @20% and Parcelforce's 9 charge to collect the VAT(!); by the time that's done we're nearly talking the same money as a UK sourced FMS 1400mm. Annoying!

I've sent 2 email inquiries to Applehobby via their website, no response.
I've sent a PM via RCG to Applehobby, no response.
I replied to one of their threads on RCG regarding the models they sell https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1779085 , no response.
Disappointing.

Looks like I won't be buying this plane, rather the Flyzone (or Durafly./HK or Tower Hobbies) instead

This looks like a great corsair-there are so many to chose from. I had a gws f4u way back and this looks a great upgrade from that one. So is easytiger reliable?

Great videos Rich-I like the little tips that make the build easier and better!

FWIW, I did some research on various RC forums and the NY BBB. Decide for yourself.

Very easy to work with, prompt communication, great service.

BTW, I emailed UniqueModels RC and requested a .pdf of the assembly instructions.
They replied with a zip file (5 individual .pdf files, one per page).

Now I've got something to read while I am waiting for the kit to arrive....and the snow to melt

Very sorry, there was a glitch on our website on the "ask a question" form. I need a webmaster to fix it. You can always email us at sales@applehobby.com.
We just saw and answered your PM.
The answer is we have the Corsair and props IN STOCK here in the USA, not drop shipped from China, and the cost is $225 with free shipping in the USA, and $15 for the prop. Same day shipping if you order before 12 Delaware time.

I have sent an email asking for clarification on the shipping. He is stating here Free Shipping but when I go to checkout, I am being charged $30?

I'll see what he has to say.
