Quote: "Introduction: Thank you for the purchase of our new 'Fun Scale Corsair'. The CHANCE VOUGHT F4U CORSAIR was one of our all time premiere WWII Naval Fighters. It was the first naval fighter to go past 400 mph, a record set on October 1st, 1940. Using a Pratt & Whitney R-2800-8 Double Wasp 18 cylinder radial air-cooled engine with a two-stage two-speed supercharger, with 2000 hp.

The Corsair was fast, hard to shoot down and a very good looking aircraft, making for a very popular modelers project, but until now a very difficult one indeed. So Dynaflite creates an easy to build, fun to fly, sport model of the famous fighter of yesteryear. We hope you enjoy the Corsair as mush as we have, it is one fun airplane.

This Fun Scale Corsair adds to our already extremely popular line of Fun Scale Kits which include our Cessna Trainer and our P-51 Mustangs. Check out our complete line of sailplanes, powerplanes, trainers and all the Fun Scales, field boxes, launch systems and accessories at a hobby shop near you, or just call for a catalog.

The Fun Scale Corsair was designed for the intermediate to advanced builder/flyer. Although it looks like a Corsair it flies like a sport plane, sweet, easy and safe. Its advanced wing design with just the right combination of flat-bottom airfoil, thick leading edge, built in wash-out and light wing loading allow for rapid takeoffs, very slow landings, incredibly gentle stalls, and some of the most playful flying characteristics you have ever seen. It turns on a dime and gives cents change, unlike a heavy scale model it won't tip stall and fall out of the sky. Its short landing gear, long tail moment and large stabilizer gives our Fun Scale Corsair excellent ground handling with out the normal nose overs of other scale models.

The plans and instructions are aimed at the builder with previous building and flying experience. If you haven't built a model before, do yourself a BIG favor and build a trainer first. There are many excellent trainers on the market such as Dynaflite's Cessna, Butterfly or Piece o' Cake... "

Update 11/4/2023: Added parts sheet, thanks to Pilgrim. This has been scaled up from the low-res parts ID drawing in the instructions (page 5). Caution advised.

    ScaleType: This (oz14496) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.


    Notes:
    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vought_F4U_Corsair
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

Notes

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.

Scaling

This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
