H9 F4U Corsair

The Saito 100 would be perfect.however the plane has to be respected. otherwise you will be picking up a lot of little pieces,as I On take of, build up flying speed and hold about 20-30 degrees of right ruder(the plane has a tendency to pull to the left on take-off). Do not fly it slow,especially close the ground, it tip stalls. Do loops and rolls at 3/4 to full throttle. Make your turns wide when going fast. I lost mine in a high speed stall. going fast and turned to tight. Otherwise the plane is awesome in flight.............good luck ,Karl

Once you've mastered your Corsair, go and get a H9 Ultrastick 40 and burn lots and lots of fuel with that. Going from a trainer to a full on warbird could have disaster all over the meantime, keep puttin that Corsair together with that Saito...would make a great combo. That's what i would do.

A word to the wise.

This particular model is known for having a weak firewall. There are suggestions for reinforcing alll over the net.
