FMS F4U Corsair 1700mm
 
Well, some of us have noticed the 2 first planes to introduced the 1.7m FMS warbird fleet : the P-51D and the P-47. http://www.osmot.net/monster-warbird...417_495-2.html

Thanks to HLC Shop, we now know a F4U will join it.

According to HLC, the current specs are :
- 270KV motor
- 5S Lipo
- 85A ESC

I hope FMS will make the wing foldable, even manually and with a lock system, to help transport in a car.

any better pics and is that the one there selling

I will have to buy one. I'm glad I passed on the 1400mm Corsair...

I pre-order some pcs of each new model in 1700mm, and P-38 also.
About the "kit" ready to paint, it will be only the frame, but I will suggest to FMS that they can provide a kit, with all electronics parts and the frame.
I will receive 1st pcs end of october.
Keep in touch!

i hope they did something better than the plastic POS gears on the 1400mm

I'll get one of these for sure. Their 1700 series looks pretty nice.

I'd like to see other photos & I REALLY hope it ends up being 6s. I only have one 5s battery but tones of 6s batteries that I use in my 90mm jets. I bought a bunch of used 6s 5000mah batteries in prep for the LX Corsair. Now this is coming out & it's bigger. I would think it should be 6s also.

270kv motor is really, really low for a 5s battery setup. A 270kv would be right for an 8s, but not 5s unless the pitch of the prop is way above 10

Sorry, i told you 5S....It is 6S....
Motor should be same size that is installed in the F4U 1600mm from BH/LX and P-40 from ARC/HK. Works very well with 6S. It is not a racer, it is a warbird. ;)

Subscribed. Is that an actual pic of the 1700? If so, any way to get one that's not so pixelated?

That photo looks to be of a static display model. No real visible clues that it's an R.C model such as exposed control linkages.

My French dealer confirms : http://www.hlcshop.fr/fr/nouveaux-pr...&orderway=desc

Still no official visuals ... :(

I know FMS/BeltPilot are listenning to fans some please, put a f***** 3-blade prop on it, 4-blade are less efficient and a 3-blade fits better to the gull wing !

Maybe they'll do what LX is doing with their 1600mm Corsair from what I heard. They'll throw both a 3 blade & a four blade in the box.

Sorry buddy, I am not FMS and actually this is the first time I hear about a 1700mm Corsair.
No one but HLC has confirmed that so far. I already inquired with FMS... might be a misunderstanding, not sure if there will really be such a big F4U...

By the way, both 3- and 4-blader props fit good to the F4U. It just depends on what version the model does represent ;)

Cheers,
Bernhard
