The new Saito FG-19R3 might be a great engine for this airframe.

Man I don't get it.... For years it was nearly impossible to find a decent Corsair kit let alone an ARF, now they are starting to show up in all different sizes.....

It's cute, but I'll stick with my 60cc version....

Agree - 20cc class requires improved runway, IMHO.

cheers

If it's anything like the old 60-size version, it will be a great flyer.

I wonder if the wing on the new model will work on the .60 size H9 Corsair. That would give me instant flaps.

Cool

How about this to with a DLE 20ra or a roto 25
14x8" Biela 4-blade carbon semi scale propellor
(Hamilton Logo)

Engines between 15 - 20 cc

Would this look nice on that Corsair.

It would look great, but the Beila props tend to reduce top rpm's by about 20 percent. If you are looking for maximum flight performance and a scale looking prop for a 20cc gas engine, try a 3-blade 16x8. For flight performance only, a 16x8 2 blade offers the most.

Just my opinion after several years of trying props on DLE 20's.

The 4 blade would be also good as static display and that would make the model look very realistic.

And yes you are right the 16X8 will make the DLE20 a better performance engine,i fly my 120 Seagull Models Ultimate on a 17X6
and flies great.

I suppose it's a mutter of taste and the model you go for fast or power.

Just FYI, F4U-1A Corsairs , such as is represented by this new H9 ARF, were equipped with 3 bladed propellers rather than four. This may or may not be important to some folks.

The .50 size Corsair ARF HH had on the market a couple of years ago was a great flyer, but unfortunately as many of us know Horizon discontinued it for numerous reasons I'm sure. So, we'll see how far this new version stays in production before they come up with something else! But I am on the bandwagon with the rest of you, that would've like to see a 30cc size instead.

I just saw one at Toledo, I am convinced the wing is a modified version of the old one: it has 'the step' at the root, and outer panels are not fully sheeted. Also has identical 65" span. I had (STILL have 1) several of the original versions, so I know what they look like. I would be willing to bet you could bolt one of these new ones right up to the old style fuselage.
