F4U Corsair 60 w/Retracts ARF by Hangar 9

Well, made the mistake of looking in the For Sale folders and now it looks like yet another one will be added to the hanger. Searching RCG turns up very little on this one.
So, how about a little show and tell. Who here has one? What power setup do you use? Probably the first question after looking at several people crash them on youtube. Where did you set the CG? Watched three crash vids in a row that all looked tail heavy as soon as they left the ground.

Fuelers are fine in this thread as far as I'm concerned. I just want to start soaking up info and ideas.
LDm: Your Corsair and Pete Nicholsons are the two that really got me wanting one of these. Are you using the Lado retracts?

Nice! Looks like a real sweet flyer. Even though my deal fell through I'm still very interested in this one. I'm going to do my best to wait and see what changes they make in the next release. That and the electric retracts to fit this one.

MIne is all electric with a set of LADO retracts. The manual says 5" for the CG and caused to eat it with a tail heavy plane. 3" was MUCH better. I'm useing a HK 50-55 on 5s and a 100amp ESC. However the plane is for sale at the LHS. I like my Mustang better

I will sell the LADO's if anyody is interested. $185
