After the recent success with my conversion of the TF P-47 ARF to electric power and refinishing it with some added details and new colors I thought I'd do the same for the Corsair. Having always wanted to get one it seemed like the ideal time.
I didn't see much in the way of build conversion here for this model so I figured I'd start a new thread.
The model as marketed is: 58" Long, has a 74" wingspan, 6.7 sq ft wing area, and claims to weigh 15 lbs ready to fly. After reading of other's experiences with this model its safer to put it in the 19-22lb range, with gas or 4-stroke IC power being the popular choices.
I'm going to go with a Hacker A60-14L on 10S in mine, starting with a 22x12 APC e-prop. If clearance looks to be an issue, I should be able to swing a 20x12 3-blade prop without too much difficulty.
I have a number of modifications in mind and as I progress I'll share them, but in the meantime, if anyone has any constructive experience to share about the model please don't hesitate to share.
