Ace Simple F4U- Corsair??? (building question)

Hello guys,

Anyone build the Ace series Corsair? I really need your help .

1) Aileron linkage, the kit came with plastic linkage. Did you guys cut yours to get it in a right lenght?

2) The manual called for a spar in the bottom of the wing, did you guys installed it, and did the it cost you any in terms of weight?

3) Back to the ailerons, this I am having a problem in understanding the plans

*Can somebody run me down to the aileron linkage... please

yours,
genovia

F4U :)

I've been wanting to do this kit, but have no experience with Ace kits. Keep us (me) informed on overall build/flying of it.

Hi Bill,

I finally got it. What I did was, I took time out, had dinner, went to Starbucks, relaxed w/ friends and got back trying to figure out the ailo. The stock did not cut it for me, so I decided to replace it with something close to it...

I'll post pic I'm about 75% done
