Dynam 1270mm F4U Corsair (50") Wingspan - PNP | Factory Installed LED | V2

Grayson Hobby is proud to present another legend in its lineup of Warbirds, the Dynam RC Corsair. The F4U Corsair, made famous for its ability to out climb, outrun or outfight any enemy in its day, is an exciting addition to the Dynam 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.

The Corsair features a superb scale outline with sport-like flying characteristics that make it easier for everyday pilots to fly. It comes with several scale features out of the box, such as factor installed rotating retracts, steerable tail wheel, large 3-bladed prop, aluminum spinner nut.

The Dynam Corsair is for the sport scale enthusiast who loves scale warbirds. The Dynam Corsair is the sport-flying airplane that accurately replicates the beloved fighter plane of WWII—all at an insane low price.

Tech Notes

Please Do NOT use lock tite on this airplane the locktite will weaken the integrity of the plastic and eventually will crack

This is a flying model.  This is NOT a toy....Before assembling any airplane and especially BEFORE assembling and gluing any parts together, take about 15 minutes to go over all the electronics. Make sure they are all working because in some circumstances, once the parts are glued, its very difficult to swap out components.  15 minutes in pre-assemble can save hours and hours of headaches after assemble.

Retracts failures Review by Steve Y
Have been flying this plane for 4 years, the first set of retracts worked for a few flights, then stopped halfway up (or down), Worked with them to get them to work with limited success, once the rotation peg slipped out and one wheel turned sideways. Finally gave up on them last year and ordered a new set, and they functioned properly for a dozen flights. A few days ago I took it to our field for some flying, and the retracts failed to come up after takeoff. I cycled the switch numerous times ans they still refused to operate, so I landed and tried to make them work. Finally, one came up, the other stayed down and both refused all attempts to make them work, so one is up, one is down, no more flying, and I won't order another set that probably work either. Dynam needs to address this problem.
The plane flies great - when it flies. (Posted on 12/15/2017)
Nice looking plane - great for intermediate fliers. Review by Chris
This plane looks good! If you have no experience building a foam ARF, you might want to look elsewhere, as the instructions are poor. The screws used to hold the wings down are extremely difficult to get positioned exactly where they need to be. I ended up running wood screws up through it to hold the wings on. Aside from that the plane looks fantastic and flies well. The recommended battery (2200 mAh 4S) is too small in my view. I went with a 3300mAh 4S battery. The foam surrounding the battery makes it a snug fit (which is good), I basically just pushed the battery as far forward as I could and got the CG dead on according to the manual's recommendation. Landings are a challenge (it is a Corsair, so this is expected), you have to almost make a three-point landing to keep from tipping over on the nose. With practice, good landings can be had. Be forewarned, the retracts work great, but they are not rigid at all - a hard landing and you will likely have trouble with bending/breakage. Plenty of power and maneuverability. I can easily do rolls and loops with it. It becomes slightly more aerobatic when the retracts are up. Strongly suggest setting conservative low - medium and high rates with this plane. I have 14 flights on mine so far and it is becoming one of my favorite planes. I would definitely recommend it to intermediate/advanced fliers. (Posted on 4/19/2017)
