Looks cool Wayne. I'd like one of those that's a little bigger for fpv someday.

I hope it's the 14th. Fridays are nice because my morning's are clear. Try and give me as much lead time as you can cuz I'll take the day off from work or something if you have time to fly for a few hours.

I would not recommend this plane. I am going to replace the motor and prop. Hopefully it will liven up the plane. There is a Sky Surfer V3, perhaps it is better. I still think the Easy Star beats it.

The Corsair is ready for the field again. I will take it out this weekend hopefully. Then I want to focus on the Icon A5.

Looks like the gas company built us a float fly pond.

morris hobbies So ku do 40 profile

Just got one of these new in the box. Ready to mount the fuel tank. iDirections call out mounting the tank in the forward area of the wing. I think I would prefer to mount it on the fuselage. Also rudder and elevator are set up for pull pull with servos mounted in the wing as well. I'm thinking of course it would be easier to mount them on the fuse near the tail. However pull pull wires are already installed and routed through the fuse. What would you all do? still flying the 60. Traveling alot for work these days though.

My new profile I am building has the servos all mounted on the CG, but the fuel tank is still up front. It may be a case if you put the servos in the tail, it will go tail heavy on you. Do like I do when building foamies, wait until nearly completed to have it on a CG stand and place the tank and servo last.

Very odd for a profile. Maybe they put tank rearway to have it on cg, then had to move servos forward? Can motor suck fuel from wing mounted tank in a hover?. Probably a pain to add servo wire extensions now. Try it as it is and see how it works?

I have one of those Nitro Planes Extra 330 and the tank is located very far from the motor compared to most planes. Some thought it would not run well like that, to be honest, it runs great. I am not sure what the distance limit is, I am not as glow trained as most are. I would say it would need a motor with good compression and such for good tank pressure.

I would try it their way first. You can modify it if it doesn't work out.
