Hey, I've got an old Corsair kit I bought from a buddy a couple years ago that I never built. I had planned on using a c20 motor, but now I want to use a lighter setup. What are the recommended motor, esc, servos and batteries to use for this plane? Thanks

Well I got two kits one for me and one for my stepdad. He flys nitros but really enjoys building planes. Got him the Spitfire and I got the ME-109 so we can dogfight! Thanks everyone for the support and I might end up with many more if these turn out well!

Same to you Andy ! I know you already have two in the queue waiting authorization

Okay well I got as far as seeing that I will be using a 10G Outrunner, Orange Spectrum RX, and a Rhino 2s 360 mah battery. I want to add ailerons as well. I just need some suggestions on servos. This is my first build so I apologize for the newbness!

What about three of these:

Indy,

I think these 5g servos are ok.
About the esc, I use this one and is working very well in my Zero.

Hi Gklein,

I think I can use the undercamber on the outer wings for additional lift. The hollow center wing will allow me to hide nasty cables and stuff.

Hi IndyMatt,

Dogfighting is a blast. Trying to fly two of these in close proximity on high speed is very risky at times. I only flew these with another micro warbird once. We almost flew into one another at one point. The problem afterwards is figuring out which of the two black dots is yours and determining how it is flying.

I suggest you look for a smaller servo. I suggest these:

or these

Simple and clear canopy (well-known method)

Hello everyone,

Excuse my catastrophic English (thank you google translation)

I look at this forum since long (1.2 and 3) very nice on these small planes cox beautiful.

Thanks Rotatorus:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...postcount=2225

and

http://www.modelisme.com/forum/aero-...-pas-cher.html

In my turn I make a contribution to making simple and inexpensive with a canopy.

Ingredient

1 electric oven
1 shoe box
1 roll of Scotch Industrial
1 old wooden frame
4 screws
1 vacuum cleaner
Rhodoid sheets 200 micron

exemple: http://www.travaux-manuels.fr/produi...ype=9&id=00014

Recipe

Preheat the oven to 180 - 200 ° C

Attach A4 (21cm x 29.7cm) on the wooden frame with drawing pins (or other)

Prepare the oven near the shoe box with a vacuum cleaner and nozzle.
Place the canopy original mold on an elevated rack.

Place the frame and the sheet in the oven for about 30 seconds

Turn on the vacuum

Out quickly and apply on the shoe box. (attention to the shoe box gets tired very quickly)

Let stand for 1 minute.

The result guaranteed perfect. This method can be used to refit an engine hood, an air intake or radiator ect ...

Good tests and good flights at all. See you soon.

BEWARE: Maybe their QC is better and maybe this is a new batch. But I avoid this ESC like the plaque. Bad, Bad luck with it in the past, did nothing but stutter my motors.

Rotagen, thanks for the input, but actually I never had problems with this esc. Perhaps you got really a bad batch (or maybe I am lucky )

Hi FXB,

Thanks for your contribution. I think it is very usefull. I'll give it a try soon. I like your source for transparant sheets. I think I'll order a new batch of plastc sheeting from them. Your canopy came out very nice and fits the FW-190 perfectly.

The canopy on my FW-190 was also vacuum formed over the original. I however got that one from a fellow builder out of one of the former threads.
I didn't do that one myself.

Hi Murman,

He is probably using this one:

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbycity/s...idProduct=5358

and this is my favourite esc for these planes/motors

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbycity/s...idProduct=4318

Good luck!
