GCARP, here we go bud. If your Corsair fits a 1300mah it is very close to fitting a 2200mah. Its all in the thinning of the hatch to fit a 2200mah. I use pointed dowels to secure the front of the hatch and magnets or Velcro to secure the back. I also included a pic of a 2650mah 3s in the same bay. As you see I can fit two 2200mah into my newest Corsair. A 3300mah 5s is smaller so I may end up fooling with two 2650mah 3s to make a 2650 6s for the new Corsair. If the motor can handle the volts and heat it will push me over 1400 watts
I hope I have included enough pics to give you an idea of what to carve out of the Fuselage. As far as weakening the nose, well it hasn't effected mine yet and I beat the crap out of mine. After all its a GWS and it can take it.
I like the ESC's on the side of the fuse because they are out of the way and the battery wires route better IMHO. In one pic you see a 80 amp ESC and it is out of the way even with a 2200mah 4s or even a 2100mah 5s. The new Corsair has the aileron servos in the wings so I can use the wing top inside of the fuse for batteries, big batteries

Got a new toy today in the mail. I ordered a EPO P51 and got a EPS P51 To bad its not EPO because I planned on over powering this little bird. The EPS is very frail on this one, even more so than the Spitfire. I will just suck it up and build it as light as possible and keep it around for slow, scale poking around the ball field. I will not touch this one till I am finished with my GWS P38 and A4.

I can't imagine how distraught you must about the EPS P51. I think the best remedy would be to purge it from your mind and cast it out. Straight to me. I'll send my address

Well my EPO Corsair is just about finished. Just a few tweaks to control surface throws and final balancing left to do. I'm surprised at how light it came in. With a 3s 1300 mah battery, 22 amp ESC, Power up 450 Sport, and a bunch of carbon fiber rods, it weighs in at 19 oz. My EPS version weighs 16 oz. I guess EPO isn't the weight penalty I heard it was. I can't wait to fly this thing.

Rick, you are so going to love the EPO version. I have never flown the EPS version but I can tell you the EPO version likes to be just a tad nose heavy. Or I like it to be nose heavy anyways

Semperfi, Thanks for posting the photos. I now have a better idea of how much foam I can remove.
It appears that you have removed all of the foam nerve between wing and battery compartment and also most the foam fire wall and replaced the wall with ply. Is this so?
I stopped quite a bit short compared to what you have done.
I was leary of removing to much. I now have more work to do. Luckily the work I have done so far has been on a fuse with broken tail end that I am using for mock up and practice run.
Now I will be able to remove foam from the good fuse with not many worries now.

GCARP, I removed the fire wall foam on the Orange Corsair only. All other Corsairs are using the stick mount including the yellow and orange 1000 watt one. On the stick mount Corsairs I only go as deep towards the fire wall as the stock battery would have been deep. If you need other pics let me know, I am more than happy to help.
