We re­cently posted a video from way back in 2012. It was from our Novem­ber is­sue, where we re­viewed the then-new Gi­ant-Scale F4U Cor­sair ARF war­bird from Top Flite. The video was shot dur­ing ed­i­tor Gerry Yar­rish’s first test flight, and with the help of fly­ing buddy Kevin Siemon­sen, the day was a big suc­cess. Here’s what some of you had to say.

Mark Wil­lis: I bought one of those and still have it to­day, pow­ered by a DLE-55. It flies great.

John Thomas: I had one for a while but made the mis­take of sell­ing it. Wish I still had it.

Sarge Wil­son: Sweet—love it.

Mark Paget: No gear doors. I’ll pass.

Ed­ward Karl: My fa­vorite TV show was Black Sheep Squadron, with Robert Con­rad play­ing “Pappy” Boy­ing­ton. Love the Cor­sair!

Tom Wheeler: Love the high-speed in­verted pass!
