1/72 Corsair

well I found another one I drew it up when I was working on the P51 decided to just go ahead and put it togeather and get it flying. I got the actuator installed and will put the motor and RX on tonight But wont get time to Maiden it till maybe Friday I want to get a few other planed trimmed up first. This one looks like it may come out to 2.9 grams AUW will have to wait and see what the glue adds to the total weight.
WS is 6 3/4"
will get the Plantraco RX and 4mm motor with PicooZ prop Trimmed up

Niiiice Joe!! Those dihedrals are going to make that a trimming nightmare. But then again we're taking about you so I'd say after 2 tosses you'll have it figured out.

I agree this one is gonna be a challenge But thats what I love most about this tiny stuff. I promise you it will take more than 2 tosses tho, unless I get lucky and everything is rite from the git go. I have been lucky lately and IMO I'd much rather be lucky then good.

Not wanting to criticise, but is the h-stab on straight? In the first photo it looks like it isn't at 90 to the v-stab.

And do you do anything other than build amazing, tiny planes? You're on a real mission at the moment...

The H stab is part of the fusalage this is .018 durabatics so its a bit flimsy the H stab can be bent tho to align it perfectly the Glue I use will alow me to move the Vstab also to adjust it to a more level position I can also adjust motor thrust on the fly with no need to reglue the motor back on. When it's time to fly this bird everything will be perfectly aligned
