If you fly gasoline, yes it's fuel proof.

I agree it’s a sweetheart but still a warbird. Don’t exceed the recommended elevator throws to avoid snapping out of loops, etc (except for ground handling). Land with some throttle til you cross the threshold and are close to the runway - better to come in a little hot than stall 2’ high and break a prop and bend a gear strut. Turns left a little on takeoff but manageable - not as bad as a foamie Corsair I have.

And so it begins
many years ago, i think around 2003 i bought a top flite gold edition kit of the P-47 but i never finished it.
A year later i lost interest in rc. anyway a few years ago i found my interest again and i had a P-47 itch needed to be scratched.

Im using the stock retracts they seem sturdy enough. I bought a pair of futaba 3170g retract servos they seem plenty for this bird.

Easy to setup and endpoint adjustable.

Easier to just slide the servo plate out
