I like the Corsair a lot, too. They're pretty neat! I've heard that they had the biggest propeller of any piston-engined fighter.

Unfortunately that big prop also made them very difficult to handle on the ground. You have to keep the tail on the ground as long as possible, and stay on top of the rudder, just the slightest loss in directional control could have you turning a high speed ground loop. Not good.
