Default Parkzone F4U-1A Corsair, Retract and Flap Ready (BNF & PNP)

Few World War II fighters inspired awe in both friend and foe like the F4U-1A Corsair. Capable of speeds in excess of 400 mph, it left a ghostly howl in its wake that earned it the name "Whistiling Death" among enemy troops. For those under its protection, however, there was no sweeter sound on earth.
The ParkZone® F4U-1A Corsair is a remarkably scale tribute to this warbird icon that's a blast to fly. Most of its details, including the paint scheme, are already applied for you. A set of bolt-on drop tanks and two sets of decals are included. In the air, its potent 15-size, 950Kv brushless motor will deliver all the power you need for high-speed strafing runs and spirited sport aerobatics.
For a truly spectacular Corsair experience, add the optional flaps and E-flite® electric retracts.* The model has been designed to make installing these options quick and easy, and its Spektrum™ AR600 receiver has all the channels you’ll need.

*Requires two ParkZone SV80 Servos (PKZ1081) and E-flite 10- to 15-size 90-Deg Rotating Electric Retracts (EFLG120), all sold separately.

I'm really looking forward to this plane for several reasons. First, is the rotating retracts. That only means there is a number of planes that WILL come out! (P-40, Skyraider, Hellcat). Second, the flaps are the 3 sectioned pieces rather than one piece as on other Corsair models. There is optional grass gear that can be purchased. The gear has a significant forward rake and also appears to have larger wheels. Couple that with flaps and grass landings will be a breeze with no nose overs!

Did you end up getting one of these? I'm wondering how well it will hand-launch and belly-land, since my field is mostly dirt with large cracks and little clumps of grass, making it mostly incompatible with retracts on a plane this small. Does it include any sort of skid plates for the wings?

Experience is something you gain only after you need it.
I wouldn't mind social media so much if it didn't involve people.

the stock landing gear sucks to land on anything other than paved runway. you hit a bump, it noses over, and you brake off your rudder. ive done it a hundred times. you can buy rough field landing gear, but i haven't tried them out
I'd rather build 'em than fly 'em
