Holy cow...Thanks for the link. If I had the money I would snag that in a heartbeat.

FMS, the bar has been raised!

I'm anxious to see one of those big boxes at my door! I think tho I'm going to wait till I know I'll get the right wing first.(Hopefully, the left will be there too!)

I received a pleasant surprise today!

She arrived and I got right to work on her. Everything went together great, no issues. Put the Castle Ice 100A ESC and 20A Pro BEC in her...Retracts cycle great. Taxi test went great, and that DIHEDRAL IS PERFECT!

It's been too windy to fly lately so hopefully I can maiden tomorrow. I may even have my buddy take video. This came with the plastic FMS retracts, so it will be good to test them out.

Hey man don't be pulling our legs, caught red handed that's the photo shopped pic you did with the correct dihedral...same houses, cars, trees, & road in the backdrop. Lol! Jk man that is so awesome! I don't think a tornado could keep me from flying her. I bet you fly her before the nights over, i know ya! Happy maiden and keep us informed.

Oh ya, can you take a picture of the cockpit area as best as you can? I know you prolly don't wanna pull the canopy off, so just the best you can get. I thinking bout adding BM's Elite Ace of Iron (sport pilot) to the corsair if there is room. Thanks!

That wheel wont leave any discernable marks in this sort of foam.

@ Malibu - I'll be happy to list the pros and cons after her maiden. So far, the build was cake, everything worked the first time (although the port-side outboard flap servo seemed a little sluggish the first few cycles but it's getting better) and she's a beauty. I can't wait to paint her up!

@ GodofT... Oh mamma!!!!

@ v8...The canopy is pretty limited. I tried transfering Brandon's awesome full body Aces pilot from my P-51 into the Corsair but there's no room. Even if you cut out the floor, the pushrods for the elevator and rudder are directly under the floor. So I had to use my torso Aces pilot.

I'm sure I'll have to get one and do a custom fit of one of my pilots to fit that paticular cockpit

Brandon clearly there's no choice for you. Obviously you need to buy this bird. All in the name of Research and Development of course!
