Top Flite Corsair .60 Gold Edition Kit electric


Hi, i just finished my Corsair .60 kit. i used Eflite 60 size Electric rotating retracts, Turnigy 400 Kv motor, 6500 mAh 6 cel 40C Battery, 16x10x3 Master airscrew prop, Cockpit Kit, Dummy radial engine.
I modify the way the ailerons work, the plan called for a single servo in the center of the wing I added two servo trays at the aileron area like the ARF model I felt more comfortable with this system than the single servo one it had to many moving parts.

Sorry to dig up an old thread. What was your final weight? I’ve had the kit for years just trying to get the determination to build.

Your model turned out nice.

That’s fine. No need to buy something. Hope you’re still flying and enjoying it. I’ll get to mind some day.

I bought the Luggage scale, my Top Flite P-47 ARF electric conversion is 11.2 LBS...

The Corsair and most of my planes are parked in the guest room of my other house at Fort Myers Florida, I will probably go there the 10th and 11th and I will measure the corsair.
