Giant 3.1m super light indoor flight of F4U Corsair

Recommended Posts

16 servos, retractables & lights on a small 2600 mAH liPo battery giving a total flight time of 10 minutes. Total weight 4KGs. Absolutely amazing.

The flying speed appeared to be scale, with a lot of models the speed is too fast to be true scale speed but the Corsar looked right.

Here's the full size machine, a big brute with a loud whistle at high speed which demoralised the enemy on the ground:

Power output: 2000 horsepower

Hamilton prop: 13 feet 4" diameter

Top speed:     391 knots/ 450 MPH/725 km/hr

 

 

Corsair start up and flight
