YACBL - yet another Corsair build log

I successfully (as in, back in one piece) maidened my GWS Corsair today.

LittleScreamers DeNovo motor
CC Thunderbird 9
GWS 8040x3 prop
E-Tec 1200
3 HXT-900 servos
Covered with Coverite Microlite
No landing gear
15oz AUW

I'll cover the more interesting aspects of the build.

(Update)

I ended up trying two more power systems:
Castle Creations Thunderbird-18
KD-20-22L, APS SF11x7, GWS 1060x3 (3 blade)

HXT-28-30B, GWS 1060x3 (3 blade)
https://www.unitedhobbies.com/UNITED...idProduct=2112

AUW is about 17.5 oz with either motor. It looks like this plane needs at least a 50g motor to balance properly (may be 40g + battery in the cowl)
