Just putting it together now..

Thanks Matt.
Now that i looked closer I also have a bit of wing damage as well. I guess it is something that happens at the factory or with the way it is packed.

I was thinking of getting this one or the FMS 4S one that is larger. Is there anything that needs upgrading on this bird? I know the props are always out of stock however it looks like a very detailed plane.

I think it boils down to do you want a 1100MM Corsair or a 1430MM one. The Big one needs some simple mods but is 5.5 LBS. Of course being a Corsair I have to have them all LOL.

Sold!!

After a couple of flights one of my fellow pilots got so eager that made me an offer "I couldn't refuse"

So another blue devil on the way!

Seems like a pretty strong recommendation on its own!

Going to Boil the Stock Prop

Okay, I'm going to experiment on boiling the stock props.

Used to do that with Heli and RC car parts in the past, when you had brittle plastic parts, putting them in boiling water for a couple of minutes changed the plastic to be more flexible.

Example, boiling Blade CX2 skids made them really durable. People worried about it changing the shape, but it doesn't.

So I have 2 replacement props that came in, I'm going to boil 1 set and do a bend by hand test to see if it's more flexible. On my original prop the bend by hand test broke a prop, I tried to maiden in grass and a tip over broke 2 blades and I broke the others by hand.

Let us know how it works out. This will be a lifesaver instead of hunting or waiting for 'out of stock' king....

Thanx.. I also have 3 on the way. Well 1 is shipped and I dont remember the purchase , while the other 2 are in backorder limbo...

If the plastic hardening process works I will be looking for a big pot.
