Overview

Of all of the warbirds ever manufactured, none has risen to the level of the Corsair. The Corsair may be the most recognized airplane of WWII and is certainly one of the most unusual looking airplanes to come off the production line. Top Flite is proud to release this classic warbird in an easy to assemble ARF.

  • Top Flite flat finish MonoKote covering

Product Information

Over 12,000 Corsairs were built during its eleven-year history — a number which ranks it as one of the most popular and recognizable fighters of WWII. It was instrumental in breaking the Zero’s air superiority in the Pacific theatre and earned the nickname “Whistling Death” for its fighting effectiveness. Despite the Corsair’s popularity, the work required to build the gullwing prevented many R/C pilots from flying one — until now. Gold Edition ARF engineering has reduced months of building work to just hours of simple assembly and created a convenient way to enjoy the “bent-wing” bird on a giant scale.
