Based on the size and weight I am thinking my Axi 4130-16 on 6s with a three blade prop would be about right.

well thats good news for HH. The first set of rotating retracts produced in the past few years. Since LADO went under then resurfaced

EDIT**--Robart retract ready-- So they didn't do an electric retract. That just doubled the price having to use Robart. arrrgggggggghhhhhh

looking at the weight on this thing I think a power 46 would be to little power I would think a power 60 on 6S would be much more of a fit.

Does E-Flite make electric rotating retracts? Or maybe we can expect some soon.


I'm guessing more photos are coming soon?

Lifted from the product discription....


*** Additionally, the Corsair 50 includes fixed gear; however, is E-flite electric retract-ready for the complete warbird look. ***

So it looks like standard retracts.

You're not reading it right. Yes, we will have 90-degree rotating electric retracts for the Corsair.

Is there any way to tell if this is a foam or balsa type plane?

Apparently not.

It's a traditional plywood and balsa ARF.
