Beautifully side-stepping the CAA’s Drone and Model Aircraft Registration and Education scheme Sonik RC’s new 4-function F4U Corsair looks and flies every bit as well as a far (far) larger model, yet only carries a fraction of the weight. In fact, at 58g all-up it comes in almost 200g under the CAA’s benchmark 250g registration requirement. In isolation that particular advantage isn’t overly impressive however what makes this Corsair rather special is the fact that it’s so solid in the air, even in a breeze. Equipped with a finely tuned, switchable, 6-axis gyro stabilisation system this little model laughs in the face of turbulence, providing a flying experience that never fails to astound. Offered at a pocket money price, ready to fly, with everything included in the box, the versatility of this warbird for both indoor (large sports hall) and outdoor (small field) flying is almost limitless. Put one on your prezzie list, get a group of friends together and get flying the best looking, best performing little foamie you’ve ever experienced.
Spanning a suitcase-friendly 400mm, supplied with a four-channel 2.4GHz transmitter, single cell LiPo battery, USB charger, demountable undercarriage and spare propeller, all you’ll need to buy is 4AA batteries for the transmitter. Get one, fly from home, and never be far from your R/C fix.
