Yes I am back home in PE. Sounds like I haven't missed any SW's.

I will post the A-10 plans after the successful maiden, mainly just to make sure the CG is Ok

Spinner Mold

the MIG mold here in PE is a bit too small for the CorroScales that I have been building, and I wasnt all that crazy with the look of the prop spinners I was using from the LHS

so Johann helped me with my first foray into the world of molds.....

I guess it wasnt too difficult, but the process getting there, does take quite a bit of time

Just to say "thanks" to flying beagle for the Corro Fury design. Build went well - I made the formers in 1/8 ply and changed the ailerons and formers for IC flight. flying beagle is too modest - I found the "trim to fit" lines are all spot on if you don't add anything!

All up 4lb 11 oz which gives a wingloading of 20oz/sqft and 10 for the cubic wing loading. It flies buitifully, neat stall, slow speed and very controllable.

First flight was with FS (non-supass) 40 (about .5hp) and take off was a bit long for our (bumpy) field. Now with an OS 52 FS (12x6 @9.5k) and it is fantastic. Gear are on a separate panel held on by elastic bands.

thanks for all the posts with advice and pics, made the build much easier

hey rob, your seafury looks great....there's something just right about having a big engine in the nose of a round fuselage warbird

did you reinforce the formers to mount the 52 on the nose ?....I would think the power of that prop would just twist the motor mount, if you only had correx between the formers in front of the wing...... and what did you use for the cowl ?

There's a 1/8 former right at the front with a 4 inch hole (so its more a ring) with the engine behind it (with hindsight I don't think this ring is necessary) then a 1/4 ply former with the engine on. After that there's the formers you set out but all in 1/8 ply with large holes in. There are some addtional longitudenal stiffeners between the formers. Canopy is a coke bottle and cowl is a gourmet rice tub from Costco - they have a 4 inch opening and are 5 1/2 round so I cut 1/2 out and overlapped. With a 3 inch spinner there's 1/2 annulus for cooling which looks really scale. Cost 4 inc 1 1/2 kg of Goumet rice. I'm not a big fan of rice so its an incentive not to crash!! There are some extra kebab stick reinforcers in the ailerons and rudder (to support tail wheel) and I've stiffened up the centre section and added 1/8 wire to stop the bands crushing the LE/TE. Real suprise is how well it flies - When I weighed it I knew it could be good, but I suspected a sharp stall due to the corro wing - wrong -it is a really great flyer. Paint is Rustoleum plastic primer and colour coat. I'll try and get some video. Thanks again for the great plans!!

Looks like you've beefed it up in all the right places. That Correx wing sure is "adaptable" to any flying conditions.
