Wondering because I just checked out the wire supplied with my ESM 72.5 Spitfire and the cable looks way too thin for this weight aircraft.
It was the stock wire. I replaced it with Dubro's heavy duty pull pull system wire and connectors. Fortunately it was the rudder cable that failed on landing. I just didn't have steering on the ground.

thx, good to know. I wouldn't trust the supplied wire in anything bigger than a .46 sized plane, and even then...

Decided to put the F4U up for sale. It should be snarling and flying rather than sitting in my shop while I fly other models.

Hi Stoneke,
Your pilot & cockpit look great!
Would it be possible for you to post some shots of the cockpit so I can see where some of the parts are loctaed. Tys video is good but a little short on showing both sides of the completed & painted one he uses in the video.
Many thanks,
Phil

I assume you mean mine Phil? I didn't add anything on the sides, just the plastic walls folded up. If you look back at post #86 you can see them. My pilot is larger than scale so he filled the space well enough that it would block the detail on the sides. I used the dash, cover, and seat back as well.
Enjoy your corsair.

Hi Sean,
No, the one I was refering to was post 304.
I can see a little more detail from the ones LDM post in 87 in response to your cockpit colour question but they don't come up larger unfortunately
I was hoping that Stoneke had taken a few more of his obviously Tys cockpit that he would post for me
Anybodies photos of a completed Tys cockpit would be grately appreciated!

Hi Lou,
Thanks for the info.
Unfortunately most of the links to any reference section seem to be broken
In the end after going around in circles I gave up.
Great pity Ty doesn't post photos of the completed cockpits he produces as it would, I'm sure, help a lot of his customers.
I'll keep searching & no doubt will get there in the end

StrictlyScale, I need help with the ESM Corsair flaps. According to the manual, the flap control rod should be a total length of 155mm ( 30mm back from flap horn at 155 deg. and another 125mm to servo horn).
I made a mock rod and noted that the control rod is at least 65mm to long. Is this a typo in the manual?
Also, how do you attach that rod to flap horn and servo horn with it inside the wing?
Appreciate any help you can offer, thanks. RevGQ.

Sorry for this a being the first post here.
