Attn: PKZ F4U pilots
Thanks again for purchasing the ParkZone F4U. We are certain this beautiful aircraft will bring you a lot of fun and flying excitement.
It has come to our attention that under rare circumstances one of the motor mount screws may come in contact with the 3S flight battery. To prevent any possible damage to the battery pack , especially from a hard nose-first crash, we suggest that you remove the screw and replace it with a shorter one (2.5 x 6mm) or cut some of the excess length off with a cut-off tool or wire cutters. It will be necessary to first remove the propeller and cowl to access this screw. If you have any further questions, please contact the Horizon Hobby Product Support group at 1-877- 504-0233.
ParkZone is proud to present another legend in its lineup of Warbirds. Along with the North American P-51, the Corsair is arguably the most popular fighter plane of World War II. The F4U Corsair, made famous for its ability to outclimb, outrun or outfight any enemy in its day, is an exciting addition to the ParkZone family. Referred to as “whistling death” by the Japanese in World War II, and the "Sweetheart of Okinawa" by American troops, the inverted gull wing allowed for the huge propeller to clear the deck with its short, stout landing gear. Designed as a carrier-based fighter, it was also the first Naval aircraft to have landing gear retract flush into the wing behind panels for improved aerodynamics, and it was the first fighter to exceed speeds of 400 mph. Its successful reputation and unique flying characteristics have earned the F4U Corsair its place in American military history!
ParkZone’s version of the Corsair features Spektrum's DX5e radio technology, a 480 Brushless outrunner motor and Li-Po battery for ultimate control, exceptional performance and increased flight time. The fixed landing gear and steerable tail wheel allow for smooth takeoffs and landings. The attention to scale detail in this plane is amazing, from its historically representative 3-color trim scheme to the pilot figure inside the cockpit.
The Corsair delivers incredible looks and the immediate gratification ParkZone plane owners have grown to love, while its Spektrum DX5e radio technology and Z-Foam™ construction provide pilots with the durability and reliability they require in a park flyer.
