    Just finished this. I noticed someone else doing an A-7.

    This is Rich Uravitch's design. It was in the January 1995 MAN. Has removable landing gear, which I may use on paved runways, otherwise on grass, it may need a hand-launch.

    E-Flite Power 32 in the nose.

    Will use a 3 or 4 cell Lipo, thinking around 3000 mah

    11x7 prop.

    She should be quite fast!


    Nice looking Corsair II. Had the House of Balsa version with an OS .28 heli engine and it flew like it was on rails when the speed was up but could be a handful if you stalled it. Mine eventually suffered a flame out and wasn't able to make it back to the field...the tail still decorates the work bench area though.

    RE: It's Building Season, Whats on your bench?

    Well, so far this winter I built a 60 sized Davey Systems Stampe SV4 in cream and blue solar tex. A Flyline models Great Lakes Trainer in orange, a SIG 1/6 scale cub, and now I'm building a Little Angle from Model Airplane World Jan 2013. If winter persists and I have time, I will finally get started on my Carl Goldberg BU 133, Bucker Jungmeister. It will be a busy spring with all kinds of maiden flights.

    Five months into my vintage Sig Ryan STA build. Just recently finished up with installing rivets for scale effect.

    RE: It's Building Season, Whats on your bench?

    Thanks goirish. These rivets are made from aluminum soda cans. I punched them out with some 2-56 rod, larger rivetscan also be made from 4-40 rod. I ground oneend of the rod convex toduplicate the shape ofthe rivet. Each rivet is then put in placethen touchedwith the tip of a hot soldering iron.If your interested I do have a build thread and it shows in depth the process along with photos: http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_11..._1/key_/tm.htm .

    If I built like that, I'd need to crash a lot more often to avoid running out of space!
