Hi Down is up, up is down, Welcome to Wattflyer! I did a quick search of the usual suspects, seems Raidentech + Wonderhobby had a "nitro" Corsair, 58" W.S. for about $120.00 but they both say "Sold out". Next, a little smaller than you indicated, Great Planes (Tower Hobbies) Combat Corsair ARF .15-.25 glow, 43.25" wingspan, wing area 340 sq. in., flying weight 2.5-3.0 lbs, wing loading 17-20 oz/sq/ft. length 34". Balsa and ply construction, fiberglass cowl, Price $99.99 USD. http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXGJY8&P=ML
There's others, I'm sure but this may get you started!
Good Luck

Check out Nitroplanes.com. They've got 2 of them at 50". Great reports on their capabilities.

I fly the Sportsman Avaiton Corsair from Hobby People. Wait for the sale, then grab it. Great quality for the sale price.

Make that 2 votes for the Sportsman Aviation Corsair. An exact duplicate of the Hangar 9 Corsair, only slightly smaller. Like the Hangar 9 warbirds, it is built light, and is a natural for electric power. With mechanical rotating retracts already installed , it's a tough deal to beat at $200 or less.
My advice: buy one, and you wont be disappointed.
