A stock propeller aircraft called F4U Korsair. Built with 73 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark2Cockpit.

The Korsair is an all stock propeller plane (see bellow for startup procedure and gears) but once you get the propeller started up and the plane off the ground, it flies much like a normal plane. That being said when going into a steep climb you might want to switch back into 2nd Gear. The R-400 is not quite as stable as the R-404, but its still stable enough to reload in flight quick saves. I would not recommend physics warping (time warp is fine when landed).

Engine: K&K R-400-b Cyclone

[Start up procedure]:
-Turn on brakes
-Stage to decouple propeller
-Enable SAS
-Switch to propeller using the ] or [ key
-Hold down alt+E until the plane starts moving forward (In the bottom right hand corner of the screen you will see a bar called Roll the further to the right the indicator is the faster the prop will spin).
-Once you start moving forward, quickly switch back to the main craft and disable brakes.
-Use your pitch control to keep the back gear on the ground, if the gear starts to rise before you lift off the propeller will hit the ground. You should lift off at around 25m/s

[1st Gear]: The plane starts off with the propeller elevons not deployed but angled to give the maximum static thrust this is 1st gear and is best from 0-35m/s

[2nd Gear]: When you get up to around 35m/s switch to the propeller and right click on one of the elevons, (If your having trouble, try looking at the plane perpendicularly) and click on deploy this will angle the elevons to work best from 30-55m/s.

[3rd Gear]: Once at 55m/s right click on the elevon again and set the Authority Limiter to 150. This angle works best at 55-80 m/s.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.1.3.
