    RE: GWS F4U Corsair

    You are not going to like any of my suggestions....

    First, the good thing you have going for yourself is that the "GWS" Corsair is the RC model Warbird with the most Wing Area in the World War II RC Models and it will lift all that heavy stuff in your pictures.

    I have three mustangs and one Corsair. All of which fly with Brushless and Li-POLYs.

    Let me know when you are interested in making your Corsair light weight for much better performance and slow landing speeds.

    dont worried I do know that ! I think i will go with the 8cell 650 mah. they are not heavy as the other 2 . when I buy my helimax 450mx the guy that gave me the heli also gave me a brushless combo with ESC e-sky that I never use because in my LHS told was to small for that heli so i just put it away and got a new one bigger. i was thinking on that motor for my corsair. but since the corsair GWS arf kit came with the motor !! i first will give a try with the 650mah that weight less than stock HZ 7cell and that battery came with another GWS cessna so it have to work . the ARF version cost me only $56 so it worth burn out that motor first then move on to a better one..

    That GWS EPS-400C is very rugged but, on the heavy side as it is a Speed 400. Try to down size the Propeller diameter and place a good pitch speed plus using 3-Cell Li-POLYs and watch it zing with zest appeal.

    RE: GWS F4U Corsair

    My GWS Corsair was a great flyer stock, with the 350C brushed motor and NiMH's. That being said, think guapoman2000's suggestion of a on-size-smaller prop and 3-cell lipoly is good. Another suggestion is to consider two aileron servo's, one in each wing. This is much better than the stock setup with one servo and bending the torque rods per the instructions, which results in a lot of slop.

    RE: GWS F4U Corsair

    Here is Rick's Corsair that has been crashed and repaired numerous times. This is his very first War Bird and it happens to be the Corsair and I recorded Video footage middle of last year (2007).

    He installed a GWS Brushless outrunner and GWS brushless ESC to result the performance of what you will see the in following Video footage:

    RE: GWS F4U Corsair

    I second the two aileron method and don't bother with the rudder.
    Flew mine for a good 5 years with the stock 350C and 8cells of 730 mah NiMh batteries. I finally retired it last year after a less than perfect return. A great airplane![sm=thumbup.gif]

    Don't put a rudder servo in. Just bank and yank, save the weight.
    Elevator and Aileron is all you need to fly around with it. If I were to build another one it would be sans the rudder.
