Airfield F4U Corsair - 1440MM

My modifications for this plane:

1. Hatch mod as described in Sandacer's Blog. Makes battery removal and placement for proper CG easier.

2. Stripped and repainted with three color scheme.

3. Added vinyl graphics from Callie Graphics

4. Added Harry Higley (8x1.25mm- NIN008) Aluminum Spinner. The stock spinner threw my prop out of balance. Plus, the added weight helped with CG problems.

5. Added Nav lights. Formed my own lens covers. Added reflective paper so lights can be seen better from the side and the front.

6. Gun mod. - created guns from nylon spacers.

7. Added Castle Creations 10A UBEC.

8. Replaced both gear door servos because of excessive chatter.


Possible future mods are a new pilot and the flaps mod.


Thanks to Sandancer for the inspiration to do the Marines Dream scheme and for all of the help along the way.

Also a lot of thanks goes out to the many contributors at this thread:
