An Early Christmas Gift


Today, one of the guys at work gave me another crashed model aeroplane. It's an1100mm Park Zone F4U corsair.
I brought it home and fixed up the tail, then put in a receiver. Once I'd bound it, I ran it up. The Electronic Speed controller burned out straight away. The model filled with very dense, white smoke. I quickly disconnected the battery and pulled it out. Luckily, I had a spare 40 amp ESC, which I quickly tested and then installed.
I called my friend Kyla, who I am teaching to fly RC, and asked her to come over.
You see, Kyla's favorite war bird is the corsair, and I told her I had a surprise for her.

Once she turned up, we went to the park for the test flight. I fully expected the model to be twitchy and difficult to fly. Boy, how wrong I was.
This model is just an absolute JOY to fly.
It was gentle to fly, and performed all of the usual loops, rolls and inverted flight.

Once I'd landed the model, I handed it to Kyla and said, " Merry Christmas, it's yours".
