Hi guys
so I have this bird home, too. I have not yet flown. So far, it's cold and makes small adjustments.
Can you please tell me what it is to be used safely CG? Each gives a slightly different and I do not know what to choose.
Thanks a lot guys
sorry for my Google English

I think the build review that Rich did for Motion RC work well. I'd suggest you follow his recs. you can get the video off YouTube (1700 Corsair building tips) or from the MRC site ( I think).

The 1700mm P-47 actually comes with this new motor mount and motor board (firewall) installed at this point. The motor board (firewall) and motor mount for the 1700mm P-47 are the exact same updated parts used on the 1700mm corsair. The part numbers are the same. FMS has not updated the motor mount or firewall for the 1700mm P-51D. We have not seen any issues on the P-51D.

I would have like to have known before doing the scale mods
Dangaras, The Corsair in your picture has the new motor mount which means you have nothing to worry about. I know the horse is out of the barn already but I always recommend putting a few initial flights on a new plane before a major repaint/detail just in case there are potential issues. Again, you should be fine since you have the new mount. Your plane looks fantastic!

Actually that is LDM's corsair.... Amazing work.

Mine does not have the new mount as it is a bastardized plastic & basswood mess from 2014 season.

To be clear, mine cracked twice and has been fixed repeatedly. The problem is even if I wanted to go to the new mount the pain and destruction I would have to go through to dig the "fixes" out would make me very angry!!!!

So having to incur the cost of a mount plus shipping to Toronto would really be excessive.
