Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Boggs Good Hunter fan
I bought this online and Home Depot shipped this UPS in a short time.
This is an F4U Corsair. We have made a few changes to make it our own. The fins on the cylinders were painted silver for a little depth. Prop blades are painted black with yellow tips. Real Corsairs had a 4 bladed prop, I wish this did. The prop cone is red n white but does not spin.
This is the quality you expect from a Hunter fan. Instructions are pretty good. Assembly is clear cut.
The aircraft silhouette parts are put up before putting up the fan. They are held in place by 3M double-sided tape (ours did not stick well, probably the high Hawaii humidity) and some toothed metal disks hammered into the ceiling. These disks work well and are hidden by the silhouette but permanently mark the ceiling.
You'll need a lot of clear floor space to layout and put this fan up as the wingspan is around 8 feet and you need access to most of that during assembly.
Unlike most ceiling fans where you attach the blades one by one to the motor, these three fan blades are assembled to a ring that is then screwed to the motor.
The description says that the fan is suitable for ceilings as low as 7 feet but that cannot be correct as the instructions warn against any parts being nearer the floor than 7 feet. On an 8 foot ceiling, the nose cone will be at 7 feet.
There is no light kit with this fan, but that would detract greatly from its appearance.

Looking for new fan for daughters room and see that this is still offered. Just want to say my boys love this fan, we bought it 15 years ago and it is working non stop. Works just as it did the day we bought it. The decals stayed on ceiling all these years, color looks same. Definitely recommend.
