You probably will not see an electric 9lb. Corsair in the 1/4 scale size ever fly like this. Loaded with working options.

GIANT but SUPER LIGHT INDOOR FLIGHT 1:4 SCALE RC F4U CORSAIR (FOLDING WINGS / TWIST & TURN RETRACTS) Jürgen Schönle, a member of the DMFV Indoor Team performing at the Leipzig Modell-Hobby-Spiel Trade Fair, amazes the crowd at Modell-Hobby-Speil Trade Fair with an indoor flight of his 1:4 scale F4U Corsair. This model is built from extremely light depron foam and is powered by a motor with a gearbox which powers a scale 4 blade 22 inch balsa prop. The battery powering the model is a 3S2200 pack ! Wingspan of this model is 3.1 metres and total weight is 4KG. Jurgen is not only a master builder but an ace pilot and it was a pleasure to film this magnificent model in action. IMPORTANT: Contrary to wide belief these models are not filled with helium. They are built with extremely light materials so the result is a model aircraft that has a very light wing loading that enables them to fly in tight spaces such as the exhibition hall at this event at Leipzig Modell-Hobby-Spiel Trade Fair for the 'Essential RC'

The build link also shows ingenious parts he made and another flight video also. A video showing some of the building techniques in this model can be found here:
