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 gull wing 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.
