Probably the most recognised US Navy aircraft of WWII, due to its distinctive folding cranked-wing design, this Corsair has been built over the most accurate plans available, including original factory plans and drawings. The 'Birdcage' nickname is due to the copious cockpit glazing framing which was replaced in other versions of the Corsair with a single-piece blown canopy.

This highly detailed model features a fully functioning virtual cockpit, intricate cowl flap mechanisms, oil cooler and intercooler doors, wing folding mechanics, tail hook, animated bomb and drop tank release and more. An additional external model depicts the F4U-1B clipped-wing variant of the Corsair which was flown by the Royal Navy, who clipped the wings for easier storage in its cramped hangar decks and for better stall behaviour.

  • Accurately modelled F4U-1 Corsair, designed using real-world aircraft plans
  • Additional clipped wing F4U-1B Royal Navy external model included
  • Six authentic paint schemes:
     - No. 15 ‘Daphne C’, flown by Capt. James N. Cupp of VMF-213, Munda, September 1943
     - 17-F-13 in the tri-colour scheme as it appeared aboard the USS Bunker Hill with the US Navy VF-17 units in 1943
     - No. 576 ‘Marine’s Dream’, flown by Major Gordon of the ‘Flying Aces’ VMF-222, December 1943
     - No. 18 ‘Bubbles’ of VMF-124, flown by Lt. Bill Crowe
     - 5A British Royal Navy F4U-1B with clipped wings
     - RNZAF NZ5201, recently restored and resident in New Zealand
  • Numerous animations including canopy, cowl flap mechanisms, oil cooler and intercooler doors, wing folding mechanics, tail hook, animated bomb and drop tank release
  • High definition textures are used to produce the highest possible texture clarity, and bump and specular mapping are used throughout the aircraft to produce a truly 3D feel
  • Beautifully detailed Pratt & Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp radial engine
  • Realistic radial stereo sound set
  • Authentic animated virtual cockpit
  • Accurate flight dynamics
  • Detailed and animated cockpit in exterior model
  • Cockpit sounds such as switches, knobs and levers
  • In-game options - special configuration panel allows for seat height adjustment and view angles in the VC and the removal of the pilot when on the ground
  • PDF manual including flight guide
  • PSD paint kit

In 1938 the US Navy Bureau of Aeronautics issued request for proposals for a ship-borne fighter aircraft. Vought-Sikorsky answered the call with a proposed design powered by a 2,000hp twin-row, 18-cylinder radial from Pratt & Whitney known as the ‘Twin Wasp’, one of the most powerful aero engines of the period.

In the first year of production, 1942, Vought produced 178 F4U-1s. These aircraft soon found their way to front line duty in the Pacific Theatre, immediately flying combat missions in 1943 with the US Marine Corps based in the islands. The first combat mission was carried out by VMF-124 on February 11th, 1943. The Corsair served with great distinction throughout the remainder of WWII and later in the Korean conflict. Later variants of the Corsair were employed by other international forces such as the French and Argentine navies, flying on into the 1950s and 1960s. Over 12,000 were eventually built and many airworthy examples still exist in private ownership.

KINGS SCENERIES - CANCUN MEXICO MEGA SCENERY P3D
Carlos Buenrostro
Wont give it half a star because store won´t allow it. Terrible terrible terrible perfonrmance. With my current rig I run a very new A320 addon that has some reputation for being extra hard on FPS, and still get 30-40 FPS on more complex and detailed sceneries like KSFO with dynamic lights enabled. With the default F22 on P3D v4.1 I got around 6-8.2 FPS when I loaded this one. Besides, you have to add it manually, not worth even 2 bucks. I´m asking for a refund... Don´t recommend it at all...
A1R DESIGN BUREAU - A1R YAK-55M FSX P3D
Ákos Bohus
Magnificent plane with detailed textures and accurate model. I give 5/5 stars for the working wing fuel gauges and they look great! You must be an ace on the RPM lever to fly this bird properly, though experience is the best teacher. It produces a little more hardware usage than the A1R Blanik does. Recommended as well!

Just purchased this scenery and I have to say I am very impressed. The night lighting is amazing. Both at airport and the full island street lighting is amazing. Runway texture is amazing also, along with the harbour scenery. Very happy with this purchase. Well done too MK-STUDIOS on a fantastic scenery. ;)

TOPS - TAKEOFF PERFORMANCE SYSTEM FSX P3D
Svetlin Andonov
Great small application. First, the developer already confirmed that V-Speeds will be added, so I am looking forward to that. Second, for a first release the app does what it says and it's stable looks like. I could see this being improved much more in the future. I am not owner of TopCat due to the small amount of aircraft support and have been waiting for somebody to create a new app for take-off performance. Well, it is finally here. Job well done.
