Another Corsair Build Question-OK Two.

I noticed that my Corsair kit did not come with a Bamboo Spar like all the rest of the kits I have built, Do I need one?

Also, When hooking up the ailerons, should I use Full Throws? How about the Elevator, a little less than full throw?

The Corsair doesn't come with a spar, the wing is thicker and strong enough with out it.

My Ailerons are at full throw.

My Corsair is at 65% EPA elevator which is at the medium throw.

I would set them to maximum throws and use dual rates to tame them until you're comfortable with the plane. Watch the elevator throw, though, I had some snap rolling.
