Photos of Flaps, wing hinge and retracts


Hi,

I was in Duxford UK this summer and lucky enough that the owner of the Corsair let me hop the rope and get some close-up shots of the flaps.

He also told me that the Oleo retracts up 14" to make the it shorter as it retracts into the wing!

Hope the pics are of some use to you.

Cheers
Nicholas

Thanks a lot, Nicholas.
Do you have full view photos of that Corsair?
I guess I wish to use this painting.

And do you know about removed part of the hood - is it all yellow?

Gluing the frame of wooden rulers and bamboo sticks. Reinforcing key places: battery mount, engine mount, wing mount, rear wheel, tailplane, fin.
Use hot water to shape the ruler.

Interesting build.

Have you considered the box type internal fuselage, it gives you somewhere to put all the radio gear, battery, ESC etc.

Pictures of my Dauntless below to show how I do it.

I will cut out the extra foam to make room for the battery etc. Although your option is also interesting.
