9x9E APC prop: 45 amps/686 watts
9x7E APC prop: 37 amps/580 watts
9x9 APC sport prop: 37 amps/570 watts
9.5x7.5 E-flite prop: 43 amps/658 watts

I don't believe this motor would last using the stock prop on 4s, however the performance w/the 9x7E APC prop and 9x9 APC sport prop has been phenomenal. Hold back for scale and when you want to rip with a close fly-by, the speed is impressive.
Check out the Extra 300 prop (PKZ) 9.5.x 9. It's what comes with the PKZ 15 and the 30 amp ESC.in the Extra. It is listed as an optional prop for the new Corsair. Haven't checked it on my meter but it rocks with a 3s 2200. Sounds good at throttle up but is whisper silent at 1/2 throttle. VERY efficient too.

I am sure the answer is in the 1219 pages of reading somewhere, but I was wondering if the wing from the new corsair could be dropped onto this corsair to give it retracts and flaps? Would the color match? With all of the problems of the retracts from the new corsair should I even consider adding the wing? Thanks for any information!

It will not fit. Like papabatman said, they are completely different and absolutely will not work without serious modifications. I have both planes, and the wing/fuselage mounting points are greatly improved on the new version vs the old one.

I haven't flown this plane for a few months, but had a great flight today on a snow-covered lake. Last fall it suffered a serious crash after I lost it in the sun. Eventually I managed to piece it together and it flew again but the Power 10 ended up with a bent motor shaft. I'm gonna get a new shaft for sure.

Today, I put the old stock motor back in, and it still flew like a dream. The 2 bolts I used to hold the wing on make it look rock solid in the air. I threw it and it took off nice and straight with no torque roll and no hassle. Great plane!

Thanks guys, it is a beautiful place for sure. Lakes are great because they are big, flat, soft, and have no obstacles. Plus, it's only 5 minutes from my house. In the summer the options are more limited for this plane. Although it is called a "park flyer", you can't really let it loose in a soccer field surrounded by houses and trees. Sometimes I fly there, but only if there are no people around.

I noticed a big change when I used the saddle foam. Nice and stiff and no torque roll too.

No lake landing here at all. No snow no ice. I love the flying weather in Florida but I would love to try snow some day.

You can have a look at what it does here

http://clevertangerine.com/RCLogbook/


It will log flights, locations, durations, lipo health by recording post flight voltage, mah put back in the lipo on charge and end voltage etc. It graphs the performance of the lipo to keep an eye on them all sorts.

Here is a screen shot of a models front page

I must admit that when I first got it I recorded every flight in all its detail but I am not so thorough now and sometimes only get the basics...............sometimes I just forget altogether.......lol

Its a paid app but there is another one called DG RC Pilot Logbook that is a free download.

Dave

Guys, I'm working on a web site / mobile app combination for doing this. I don't want to spam the forum, so if you'd like PM me and I'll give you the details and beta information.

Nice pic Jovanx!!

I too haven't flown her in awhile, but looking at your pic makes me want to take her up next!!

I can't seem to pull away from the Durafly Auto-G lately, LOL. Gyrocopters have ALWAYS fascinated me, different & unique type of flying, BUT....

My Corsair is itching to get out on a sortie!!!!

Will PZ Corsair Blow Me Away

It also has a nice wide U/C and the biggest wheels so can handle grass a bit better.
Dave
Well said Dave. I totally agree. Really love the P-47.

Thinking about buying a PZ Corsair.
I like my Thunderbolt more than my Spitfire for the reasons you stated.
Do i need a Corsair? Im running out of space to keep planes.

Will it blow me away or should i just spend the money on P-47 airframes?
Does the Corsair have any issues that i should know about,
(like nose-heavy or weird flying/ landing habits, etc)?
Cheers mate.

I have the old Corsair and love it, its so light it can be chucked around like mad. If you want fast there are a couple of speed demons over on its thread who have modded them way up, reinforcement is essential on this model.

I put flaps on mine and it will hover........lol

The new version looks great other than the dodgy retracts but some people are saying they got that sorted..........

They fly quite differnt to the Jug....almost like powered gliders they can go so slow but great fun.
