Goodyear F2G-1D Super Corsair

80.4k Hedero  1.2 years ago

The Goodyear F2G, often referred to as the "Super Corsair", is a development by the Goodyear Aircraft Company of the Vought F4U Corsair fighter aircraft. The F2G was intended as a low-altitude interceptor and was equipped with a 28-cylinder, four-row Pratt & Whitney R-4360 air-cooled radial engine. Yes, that's right, an actual airfoil! I was inspired to do it after some failed attempts, and somehow I actually pulled it off. I'm so impressed with it. Everything is almost perfect except for the non-folding wings. I'm sorry but it's still a ton of fun to fly and fight with! For some reason the F2G wasn't well-known back in World War 2. You would think that this would be a mean, fighting machine. But I only heard of the aircraft while watching some rc airplane videos. So overall this aircraft was a huge success. And so I hope you enjoy this aircraft as much as I do. 1=Nav Lights 2=Arresting Hook 3=Landing Lights VTOL=Flaps.

    @Hedero the sad thing is the Super Corsair was a victim of the times she was everything they wanted but by the time it was ready when VD day had come but America was more focused in the future with jets so they cancelled the project

    @Hedero yep the reason why we reached out to Goodyear for the super corsair was because Vought was maxed out producing normal ones so the US government reached out to Goodyear gave them the specifications which were lighter faster and overall just better and goodyear was prefect for this because well as most probably don't know Goodyear has experience in aluminum after building airships in the early nineteen hundreds so they were prefect for the job and they did a magnificent job and my grandpa remembered the Super Corsiar got 1st place in both the Thompson and Tinnerman trophy races in 1947 and 1949 my grandpa being a WW2 Vet watching these made him proud lol

    I attempted to rip off the main wing to put a few rotators in there, but I then realized that you really need to do that while you're building.....

    No one. Snoopy had a terrible aim, and you are right, it's not too manuverable. @Hedero
