This one was built from plans I found in RCGroups.
Quick build (1 week) and it flies like a charm.
I liked it so much that I sold my HK Reaktor...

I got enthusiastic about FPV recently. I started with my little J3 Cub and it was fun, but I realized it'd be better if I had a more docile and stable platform which can also give longer flight times.
I scratch built this plane from photos I found in Google, using the same wing profile as the original plane.
The wingspan is 1500mm and the weight is about 800grams, which makes it a plane you can literally fly hands-off (it would just float gently until it lands... A beauty of a glider).

I've always liked Corsairs. I used to have a Durafly Corsair but sold it as I didn't like how it flew very much. I was then ready to buy a bigger one but I though... Hey! I can actually build this thing!
The result was great and very rewarding. I love how this plane flies and I had a lot of fun building it.
Here is the build log if anyone wants to give it a go:
