I like the Topflite Gold Edition kits. They are well engineered and offer extensive instructions...

I have the T/F Corsair with a YS-140L up front, great flying model.

I also have the big brother T/F Corsair with a 3.7 Taurus gasser upfront...

The Pica kit is good as is the Great Planes kit. Hard to go wrong with any of these. I prefer the T/F kits.

Hang on and turn left...

Default PICA!!!

The Pica kit is all laser-cut (1/8 and the 1/12th scale).

Default Corsair options

I have a GP Corsair that I finished last year and
I am totaly happy with it. It does nos not have
the scale oportunities that the Pica or TF kits
offer however. Retracts could be made to work
but would take some engineering on your part.
Bottom line is if you just want a good flying
40 size stand off scale Corsair that you can fly
day in and day out then the GP kit is a good
choice. If you want a kit that offers alot more
scale opportunity then I would go with the TF or
Pica. Depends on what you are after.....

Default Pica

Last I checked, the Pica kit was only $119 at Quantummodels.

Default corsair kit

I am currently building the top-flite kit 60 size and this was my first kit to build.It has very good instruction and very scale.It ,in my opinion ,was a better choice to me over the pica kit.After looking at the pica in the bones and built the tf,I would have to say this is a much stronger plane.It also is probably heavier too though.If you buy the tf you definitely want to use two aileron servos instead of one like they show.Just my opinions.Tivey
