I just remembered... awhile back I had a couple retract failures which resulted in my ordinance getting pretty much shredded

don't see that I can order it from HK so what are people using?

I've read in the thread previously that ppl like the 12x8x3 on 3S. Worth considering the 12x7x3 too.

For a while I used a 12x8x3 and switched to a 12x8x2 because it was faster and the 2 bladed prop won't cause the propeller shafts to bend when I belly land.
I think a 12x7x3 would suit a 3S better.
I'll have a watt meter in a couple weeks and would me happy to
measure it then to verify what my flight impressions are.

I'm getting used to a 2 blade but really prefer the 3 blades props.
Damn grass!

Here is something different and it is accurate for this plane!

They are glued to the base and two have been repaired but they are in good condition. Send me your mailing info and I'll send them to you sometime next week. It might take a day or two to dig up decent packing material.

My Corsair went down yet again.
So do I repair a plane that I repaired three or four times already or just let it go?
Just can't bring myself to salvage it yet. But I know I need to. It was flying great just before the beeping started.

ooooh man, I feel ya on the crash and the "do I rebuild or not" dilemma. I have rebuilt some of my fav airfames a number of times and then ultimately after repairing multiple times there's so many battle scars I break down and get a new fuse or wing and transplant the electronics.... I don't have the skills like a lot of people do for airbrushing and spackling to hide all the damage.

do you happen to have any pics of the rockets?

I appreciate the offer and would like to take you up on it

Danpos just pile the carcass in a corner and eventually you will find the time and energy to repair it. Every time i crash one I usually am too disgusted to fool with it right off. After a week or so I repair it after the disgust has worn off.

Good luck,
Alan

Sorry about your crash.
I need to ask what beeping? Are you using a Orange RX?

Now to find a propeller and see how it flys after the new remote arrives.
Who knows, maybe it will fly better now?
The fuzzy picture isn't intentional. But it should be. ha ha
It looks bad. If it flys decent I'll work on the cosmetics.
