The F4U-4 is the last of the legendary Corsairs to serve in WWII. Delivered to the United States Navy in early 1945, the F4U-4 is powered by a Pratt and Whitney R2800-18W supercharged Twin Wasp engine- pushing 2100 horsepower. Retaining the six 12.7mm guns and load carrying capabilities of the F4U-1D, the F4U-4 achieved an unbelievable 11:1 kill ratio during its service life.

All of the internals are stock. Powered by an Admiral 3S 2600mAh 30C lipo, the weight of this 3-cell battery (211 grams) with an additional 28 grams of ballast affixed to the underside of the removable battery tray was enough to meet the manual's recommended 60mm CG. Flown with a Spektrum DX8 G2 Transmitter and using a Lemon RX "LM033" DSMX 7-Channel Stabilizer / Receiver.
With excellent stock 3S performance, quality materials, manufacturing, as well as having flaps, retracts, and lights right out of the box, the Arrows RC F4U-4 Corsair is a great value and hard to pass up for $169. I also felt right at home piloting this one - just a very solid warbird with no bad habits, and a real sweetheart to fly.

This appears to be the same with minor changes as the Durafly 1100mm Corsair which is one of the reasons I purchased this one. The quality is top notch and it flies awesome! I am flying mine with a 2200 mah 4S 60C battery. To get this in I had to leave out the handy little slide in battery tray. I placed a block of foam behind the battery to block it in instead. This planes C.G. is right on with this battery and no additional nose weight required. I am using an Approx. 250 gram battery. I wasn't a fan of the snakes so I did remove them and color matched and painted the cowl blue. This plane flies really well and with the addition of 4S it really hauls. I also changed out the esc with a 50 amp unit. The flaps are relatively small so you can really hang them out and they are only moderately effective. No elevator mixing required. The lights are super bright which is great! The landing gear work well but I did already have some minor issues after a semi hard bounce. Probably a good idea to keep an extra set on hand as well as a few spare props. The blades break easily. This is an excellent rendition of an iconic warbird that everyone recognizes. Every model pilot should have one!
I got this as my first plane even though it's not really a good idea to start with a warbird, this plane flies really stable and responsive with a 2600 3s. Has all the power it needs with just the stock setup and can also fly reasonably slow. The looks are amazing as well and really easy to put together. Just make sure your controls are set up right before you fly and always do a preflight check.
honestly I'm very impressed with this plane, it flys so scale and the retracts work beautifully. The rudder can break pretty easily but the rest of the plane is pretty tough. It lawn darted after i lost the elevator ( due to a poor connection which was my fault) and i assumed that I was going to be picking up pieces but no. All it did was break the prop. I could not believe how nothing was damaged after lawndarting from 50 feet. Dive bombing this plane is so fun and if you do the full flap mod you can fly this plane unbelievably slow. Awesome plane especially for the price.
Beautiful bird and assembles easy enough. If your landings aren't perfect or runway gets rough the rotating gear don't like it. Flies well but cost me $40.00 every time i fly. I will have to rig static gear if there is to be a third.
