Huffdaddy, if you haven't done it already, try a 5043 prop. Will change the plane.

How is it with the UM T-28 prop compared to stock 3 blade?

that's what I'm hearing... by chance do you (or anyone else) have a pic of the 5043 mounted on the UM Corsair they could post for me?

HuffDaddy,

Here's a couple pictures of my Corsair with GWS 5043 painted prop and GWS prop adapter. I hate orange props. The tape is on there to hold a piece of clay when locating the CG. As you can see the clay located in this area is well forward of the stock battery slot. I opened the slot so Hyperion 240's 1S would fit. The battery all the way forward in the modified stock slot tucked up against the cowling corrected the CG to 27mm. My Corsair flies great and the Hyperion 240 1S is a very nice battery for the Corsair.

There you go, do you need to see how it looks or how to mount it ?

Guess I got beaten to it
Just came back from flying it again and it is as fun and easy as the T-28 now, but it flies better inverted. It rolls not as good tough.
Swimmer, where did you get the spinner ?

GW/SPN001- This has multiple prop adapters. Two are 1.5mm for the Corsair. I got mine at HobbyTown.

Allan & Mespert... excellent, thanks for the pics

Mespert, so now that ya mentioned it, is there a special mounting process or adapter needed? I just assumed that it screwed on in place of the stock 3 blader...no?

Answer: Yes. The GWS 1.5mm prop adapter screws on like the original three blade prop.

My next mod is installing a Bravo SX motor.

Moved way in on control horns. It flies! The rolls are a lot less ugly now.

But it flies.

This kit GWSPN001 has the spinner attached to the adapter. The one you show will work but you won't have a spinner.

Watch going all the way in on linear servos set to 100%. You can get a lockup which isn't fun. Don't push linears beyond 95% if you're on the inner hole. I use 90%.
