GIANT but SUPER LIGHT INDOOR FLIGHT 1:4 SCALE RC F4U CORSAIR (FOLDING WINGS / TWIST & TURN RETRACTS)
Jürgen Schönle, a member of the DMFV Indoor Team performing at the Leipzig Modell-Hobby-Spiel Trade Fair, amazes the crowd at Modell-Hobby-Speil Trade Fair with an indoor flight of his 1:4 scale F4U Corsair. This model is built from extremely light depron foam and is powered by a motor with a gearbox which powers a balsa prop. The battery powering the model is a 3S2200 pack ! Wingspan of this model is 3.1 metres and total weight is 4KG. Jurgen is not only a master builder but an ace pilot and it was a pleasure to film this magnificent model in action.

IMPORTANT: Contrary to wide belief these models are not filled with helium. They are built with extremely light materials so the result is a model aircraft that has a very light wing loading that enables them to fly in tight spaces such as the exhibition hall at this event.

A video showing some of the building techniques in this model can be found here:
