Diamond Hobby/FMS F4U Corsair

We were propitious adequate to get this great-looking scale warbird for examination from Dymond Hobby. Here is a small hide demeanour of a examination by Jason Benson that seemed in this month Model Airplane News.

 

Diamond Hobby is a North American importer and distributor of FMS Model RC Aircraft. They import a really far-reaching operation of ready-to-fly, EPO froth models. Their models range from scale to sport, and from EDF jets to gliders. They seem to have something for everyone. In this review, we will be holding a demeanour during their new warbird offering, the 1700-millimeter (66.9-inch) F4U-Blue Corsair. This really detailed, scale indication is constructed wholly of EPO foam. It comes pre-painted with molded row lines and scale details. From atmosphere inlets to cooling louvers, it’s all there, molded into a foam.

The initial thing we beheld when unboxing this indication was a completeness. The part that stranded out a many was a hinging. All surfaces have molded hinge lines. This seems to be really clever and keeps all control surfaces aligned with their stationary counterpart.

This craft performs unusually good for any category of warbird. we was very relaxed and gentle drifting this model. If we are looking for a first warbird, we would rarely suggest contacting Diamond Hobby.
