more progress, I think I've had enough, too lazy to make rockets and bombs. Next preparing for assembly instructions and plans, and video after painted.

i like a lot the work you are doing to carve "Papy boyingFOAM" (sorry, the joke was easy )

anyway, i thing the real "29" was flown by the Lt Ira Cassius "Ike" Kepford from the Us Navy - VF-17

Boyington was flying, in alia, the "89" called Lulubelle from the US Marine Corps VMF-214

No, not so ugly foam pilot, it just needs some more sanding, carving and a bit of painting.
You done the most difficult.

This is how was born my german pilot (i can call him "Hans Foam Hahn"... ) :

Very cool gentlemen. Pappy's photo op bird was "86" I believe. Outstanding work. Very Motivating.

When you said scale I didn't realize you really meant "scale" scale and not just stand-off scale. Really well done. Especially the scale flaps.

If I ever decide to visit Jakarta I need to look you up.

My latest video, it was good and not good. The good, the plane fly well, need some trimming. Bad landing, crash landing. It happened not only on the video alone but three times, two more crash landing after each reparations.

I need to re-evaluate my landing skill : The first time I cut throttle too soon and approach too slow. Second crash because of the loose battery cable, and lost power during take off, and the left landing gear smashed onto the concrete and broke its axle. Now it doesn't have retract anymore, I have to make it fixed to be able to fly it again. The third crash also on landing, the right landing gear twisted 90 degree when stumbled upon a bump on take off, so the landing was not good, this time all landing gear were fine but the left wing broke, still repair-able, now it's already glued and fixed and ready to fly again.

Now I am making its assembly instructions for the plans

Jules,
On the real F4u the landing gear was also used as airbrake.
Now your Corsair landing gear are fitted with doors and so.. are acting as airbrakes.
It also seems that you use the same channel to extand the landing gear and to down the flaps that are now "full efficient" too => the corsair now needs more throttle to land and fight against the drag created by the flaps and the landing gear's doors.

Nice work anyway, that Corsair is very nice :-)

I hope she will back in the sky very soon !!

Dreamcatcher is right on the money.
Scale warbirds in general will need to have very low wing loading or one of those SAFE systems (in beginner mode, it takes care of not letting the plane get too slow) to avoid nasty behavior at/near stall.
Also, while those rockets under the wing are very cool, getting rid of them will make things better.

Thanks all for the input

I use ESC setting without brake, but I use brake when maiden flight. Does that esc settings add drag?
