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
3 HXT-900 servos
Covered with Coverite Microlite
No landing gear
I'll cover the more interesting aspects of the build.
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)
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)
