AN EVEN MORE CAPABLE CORSAIR

Due to its unique inverted gull wing design, the F4U Corsair is one of the most recognizable and iconic U.S. Navy and Marine fighter aircraft of World War II. This updated and upgraded version of the E-flite® F4U-4 Corsair 1.2m features a factory-installed 3S and 4S compatible power system with an exclusive 70A Smart Lite ESC to deliver more capabilities and performance. The BNF® Basic version also includes a telemetry-capable AR631 receiver with both AS3X® and optional-use SAFE® Select technologies that make it easier to fly than ever before. The airframe is now finished in the iconic "all blue" trim scheme and includes separate decal sheets to customize it with MARINES, NAVY, and other markings. Factory-installed rotating retracts with strut covers, plus operational flaps, take your scale warbird experience to another level!

The Smartest, most powerful, and easiest to fly "full-house" Corsair yet!

This updated and upgraded version of the E-flite® F4U-4 Corsair 1.2m is the Smartest, most powerful, and easiest to fly "full-house" model of the iconic warbird yet! It's better equipped for scale-like flying and sport flying, PLUS offers higher speed and aerobatic capabilities than before — and includes optional-use SAFE® Select technology that makes it easier to fly (BNF® Basic version only). The factory-installed brushless power system features a 70-amp Spektrum Avian Smart Lite ESC plus a specially-tuned motor and 4-blade prop. This combination delivers an abundance of thrust with a 3S LiPo battery, or more speed and nearly unlimited vertical performance with a 4S battery. The ESC can provide a variety of real-time power system related telemetry data including motor RPM, current, battery voltage and more – with Smart and non-Smart batteries – via compatible receivers (including the AR631) and Spektrum AirWare equipped transmitters while you fly. Its lightweight yet durable, composite-reinforced and fully-molded EPO airframe has an abundance of scale detail including panel lines and a pilot figure. Functional scale features include factory-installed rotating retracts with strut covers plus operational flaps. Decal sheets with MARINES, NAVY and other markings are provided for customizing the factory-applied paint finish. No glue is required for final assembly — which means you can have the F4U-4 Corsair 1.2m ready to fly in less time than it takes to charge a battery!

Exclusive Technologies
Exclusive Technologies

The BNF® Basic version is equipped with exclusive Spektrum AS3X® and SAFE® Select technologies. AS3X works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence to deliver a locked-in feel that makes it seem like you're flying a much larger airplane. Optional-use SAFE Select offers pitch and bank angle limits along with automatic self-leveling that can be turned on and off at the flip of a switch! And if you don't want to enable the SAFE Select features, simply bind the receiver normally and only AS3X will be active.

FAQ

It's approximately 1/12 scale.

Yes

Yes, they absolutely will. What you won't have a separate channel for is SAFE Select. If you choose to use that feature (it's optional), you will need to combine it with either the flaps or the landing gear.

Generally I would say yes, that sounds ok. However thicker grass may cause it to nose over and possibly cost you a prop. Also, the steerable tail wheel is less effective on grass.

Yes, it is a 7 channel transmitter. However, E-Flite recommends a computerized transmitter.
The E-flite® F4U-4 Corsair 1.2m has been updated and upgraded into the Smartest, most powerful, and easiest-to-fly scale model of the popular WWII warbird yet — now even more capable of scale-like PLUS higher speed flying and higher energy aerobatics!
