Alan Randall  |  Jul 01, 2011

Strengths:
Goes together very easily. Uses a common 3 cell 1800 - 2200 Lipo like many other aircraft Flies very nicely, stable and moderately aerobatic. Can be had at a good price as a PNP which suits lots of people with spare RXs and 3cell lipos. .
Weaknesses:
Foam marks quite easily. Control surfaces needed some adjustment, but once done, flew with little or no further trim changes. Would look brilliant with retracts. .
Overall:
A great buy and a fine flier. Two flights last night in quite breezy conditions. The more I fly it the more I like it. With more flights it is rapidly becoming a firm favorite.

Strengths:
Durable, fleis very well, decent quality gear, well priced. . . .
Weaknesses:
Paint comes off easily. Spins have to be positivly recoverd from. . .
Overall:
Just a superb aeroplane for the money. I bought the PnP version and used 35Mhz radio without issue. I have had alot of stick time on this model including using it as 'gun camera 'video capture. Flies well on an 1800mah giving about 10 mins i also use a 2200 on windy day that gives 13+mins.

Strengths:
I bought the plug n play version. good choice if you want the RTF or Bind N Fly versions. Straight out of the box very easy to assemble, motor is well matched for the plane. like the idea of undercarrige or not.
Weaknesses:
Once marked the white foam is very visible underneath. . . .
Overall:
Great fun to fly, looks good in the air. Easy to assemble. Plenty of room in the fuselage for battery and radio gear. .

Strengths:
Ease of build, scale looks, parkzone quality. . . .
Weaknesses:
foam scratches easily, exposing white foam. . . .
Overall:
I always loved the look of Corsairs so thought long and hard which one to buy. In the end i decided on the Parkzone after checking out lots of videos on Youtube. The bind-n-fly version was very quick to get from the box into the air using the DX6i i owned already. .

Strengths:
It does what it says on the tin. Everything (except rx & batt) preinstalled. 3S 2200 battery just fits and gives in excess of 10 minutes. Flies really well.
Weaknesses:
Can't really think of any for a model in this class. I was worried about the u/c as it clips into place but it is fine and copes with grass and heavy landings well. . .
Overall:
Bought the plug & play version (ie not 2. 4Ghz). Extremely pleased with it. Having just got my 'A' cert I was a bit apprehensive but a bit of rudder on the ground and a couple of clicks of elevator and she flew very well.
