Crackstyle F4U

Hey,

time for me to start my own scratchdesign-thing

I like the x-fuse concept of the crack turbo beaver.
Twisted Hobbys: Crack Turbo Beaver 3D (3 min 51 sec)


so why not taking that concept to other planes!?

Im now trying to build an epp-crack-stile-x-fuse-f4u-corsair

the plan is still growing and will show up here if it is no longer a waste of your ink and paper.

Here are some pics of what I did the last evenings:

I have been waiting for someone to design a airplane like the Crack Beaver with plans. The videos sure make it look like a great 3D airplane.\

My favorite WW2 airplane is the Corsair (whispering death).

It looks like you are going to combine both together.....I am eagerly waiting for a flight report or better yet a video!

I will try to get a first feeling for it tomorrow (if the weather is with me) to test the plywoodspar, the cg, the powersetup (atm a Horizon Hobby Park 370 / 1360kv on 3s and a 7x3.5x3).
I try to add a KFstep and maybe i have to scale up the ruddersurface a bit.
We will see :P

Maybe i can grab a little video from that.

No wit is time for bed ... here the status today:

I went out for Testflight today.
The 7x3.5x3 is not enough power.
I wanted to switch to the prepared 8x4 but the spinner had an error, so I have to give it an other try on an other day. ((

What a good idea, incorporating the gull wing into the bottom of the X of the fuzz..
I like the corsair
