    Very nice job! I’ve never seen a Corsair in this livery before... Also the funky tree codes are magical, it really enhances the experience

    How does the deck manuvering work because with the wings folded the engine is off

    It’s a must have plane(Sadly I can’t upvote as I don’t have enough points. But when I do I will definitely upvote)

    Yeah I read about that, it’s a real interesting story. I used the same flag technique on my P-51, I hope you don’t mind ;) @BogdanX

    I remember the story involving a P-51 shooting down a C-47, not an F4U-4

    I just noticed a minor detail, and I'm curious about it. This is a U.S. Navy fighter plane, no? Why does it have an American Flag on the kill tally under the canopy? It has 4 Japanese flags and one American, indicating that the pilot has shot down four Japanese planes and also shot down an American plane. Can you explain?

    If this was the jinx, well, it's a great jinx for me. It outperformed every aircraft I put against it. The BF-110 by QZ, the Brewster Buffalo by Tang0Five, and the (slightly modified) stock P-51 Mustang. Landing, however, is a bit difficult. I ended up having to get down to 75kn and have the nose about 14* up and pretty much stalling onto the runway. (I think that was what made it the jinx, it was hard to see where you were landing from the cockpit)

    i have been playing this game for 4.5 years..which is a lonng time.. (this is a new acct) and i must say...(not trying to kiss @$$ here because its true) but out of the many thousands of planes i have downloaded this is the most detailed airplane that i have EVER seen. most airplanes with this much detail has thousands of parts yet yours is under 700. very good job!
