Zmonster , It's OK, the whole weight thing is a non issue for many modelers.
The performance guys might cringe at the thought of adding weight for looks while the scale guys cringe at flying a "ghost ship".
I have the other micro upgrades on the site and felt I had to keep the set complete.

As for the servo covers looking like a weapon. .. . . ..I tried a bomb shape and the pushrod exit ruins the shape. Attaching it would have been a pain as well.
Rockets would have had to be extend beyond the leading edge and the part would have been fairly flat. The last thing I need is for the cover to ruin servos if installed wrong.
I went with a cover made for the servo to reduce drag and weight and still have enough clearance for it to work as designed.

Ya there isn't a lot of room to play with the way they are setup. That's why I just went with a similar simple cover as well for now anyway.

Sorry, I don't have a scale that small.
The whole thing (untrimmed) weighes 1/4 ounce but when trimmed and assembled it don't regester so I supose it's less that 1/8 ounce.

Hi. here is a link to a video by horizon that shows how to replace a wing on an ultra micro.

http://www.horizonhobby.com/Articles...ArticleID=2237

I know this is a champ but it should be the same with the corsair. It's just held on by some tape or glue. You would just need to cut through that, then change your servos and then glue the new wing back on. You will need to open the top so you can unplug the aileron servos to put them on the new wing.

Hope this helps!

Help with Corsair motor alignment needed

Can some of you check out your Corsair and see if the motor is pointing down and right as is typical with T28 and most um planes? I have to replace the gearbox on mine and lost enough foam getting the old out to be unsure of where it was. I actually thought mine was almost perfectly straight as far as up/down thrust was concerned.
I know the T28 and my mosquito has visible down thrust and am sure my corsair never had as much down thrust as they do. My Sukhoi is essentially level.

Help please

Yes, they all have the down and the right orientation.

Speaking of chargers....I've had the stock charger go tango uniform on me. Lights come on but it doesn't charge cells. New, verified condition batteries didn't help. Cells charge fine on my Mosquito charger. I've got a note into Horizon but they aren't being as prompt in reply as I'd hoped for. I like the stock charger's portability. Anyone want to part with one? PM me if you can help.

Elevator gave too much up, it just did loops in the air until it crashed and took off a wing. Hooray.

Champ has a sticky rudder servo. So they're both down.

Just glue the wing back on. That's not enough to stop the Corsair. Champ straight to the Corsair - that's quite a jump. Put a um T28 in the middle. Warm up on the Champ, step up on the T28, then fly the Corsair.

I went from a J-3 Cub straight to the Corsair. Had no difficulty in the transition. The Corsair did take a fair bit of trim to stop it from just doing circles to the right though, but after I had her trimmed for level flight at about 75% throttle she flew very nicely.
