Default parkzone f4u corsair micro

Hello all!
Just wanted to post about my new f4u corsair from parkzone! I have been putting it off and putting it off buying an electric plane because I could never really seem to get into it, but I must say I am completely impressed with this little guy.
My box didn't seem to come with an instruction manual but I really didn't need one as it was all relatively self explanatory. The charger works well that is supplied with the kit, the plane is assembled nicely, I didn't have to do a thing to it other than I moved the pushrod for the elevator in 2 holes to give it a little more throw, stock it came with very very little throw and I was not comfortable trying it with such little throw, I am glad I did this because the way it is now is just about perfect in my eyes, and I think any less and it would probably be quite uncomfortable. The one area of disappointment for me was the transmitter, I opted to get the model with the transmitter included because I have no spectrum or spectrum compatible transmitters in my arsenal, I have HiTec and Futaba. I guess I shouldn't be surprised for what I paid for the whole setup but the transmitter included is really really flimsy, awkward, and not what I am used to at all. I am going to probably buy a spectrum compatible radio that I can use for this little guy and probably get some others too..

A couple ?'s. Does anyone here know of any of the off brand transmitters like from turnigy or hobbyking that will bind to the parkzone stuff? Also, has anyone experimented with using slightly larger batteries in the planes to produce a bit more power? Not that this was underpowered, but it didn't have unlimited vertical, and I don't know if I could have looped it or not, might be fun to have a little more power..

Happy flying everyone!
Steve

If it's new, the instruction manual is taped to the bottom of the foam carrier. Glad you like the plane. HobbyKing just debuted a new Spektrum DX6i clone, but it is backordered. It is less than $70.00 and is fully Spektrum compatible.
