Guys,

We finally had some of the best weather conditions here in Central Florida and it was almost DEAD Calm and I wasted no time and came with my Beloved Hangar9 F4U-1A 50-size Electric.

This model is just an amazing flying model. Everyone just stood and watched and yes, I was the only one at the Pilot's station.

Flew it for two wonderful flights and flew it like I stole it!

The landings were picture perfect!

Here is my buddy Gerry (simano) with his Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) digital camera with a new zoom lens!

Camera: Pentax K-X DSLR
Lens: Promaster 70-300mm, f4-5.6/w Tele-Macro Zoom

This is how I feel when I am able to land my Corsair perfectly twice in one day!

Guys!


I just learned that after a few years you would need to clean connector harness between the main base receiver and that at the Satellite Receiver to avoid disaster.


My specific AR-7000 Receiver is one of the few Spektrum Receivers that work only when at least one Satellite Receiver is connected to it. It otherwise do NOT allow any movement of servos nor will it allow for motor to be in ARM mode. I tested it without Satellite and sure enough it just sits without any activity.


Disconnecting the cable harness between Main AR-7000 Receiver and Satellite and using CRC 2-26 spray (Electronic / Electrical Components) did the trick to make a SOLID connection once again and now all works as designed.

Guys,

Been a long time and took my beloved Hangar9 F4U-1A 50-size Electric to the RC Club field early this morning and had two wonderful flights with it and it flew like a speed demon with the Turnigy 5-Cell, 4,000mAH, 35C, Lithium Polymer Batteries (Had two packs total).

Dead Calm so the model over shot the Textile Runway and onto the freshly cut grass and it did so very majestically. I didn't want to take any chances as this is a heavy model compared to my other Park Flyers so, I wanted good amount of AIR SPEED on approach and it didn't disappoint. Touch down was performed by setting down the model on its mains and giving it a touch of down Elevator to avoid the bounce and it stayed on its mains like the full size and everyone there applauded!

One picture of it after first flight of the day.

Almost forgot!

The two flights taken on Saturday, July 30th, 2016 proves that the cleaning of the Spektrum AR-7000 connectors did the trick as I didn't see any strange issues with either the Satellite Receiver nor the Main.

The model flew like it was on rails.

One must be careful where one stores the model and its best to keep the model in a climate controlled location and NOT the HOT Garage with Humid conditions.

Guys!

Took out my beloved Hangar9 F4U-1D 50-size Electric Corsair and wow, it flew for two wonderful flights almost dead calm conditions!

My buddy Gerry was there and took some new High Resolution pictures with his Nikon DSLR camera and zoom lens.

































Going to say a prayer as my Rudder set screw got lose and noticed it on the table right after my first flight and right before the 2nd flight! I am so glad that careful per-flight checks has been drilled in me as I caught the Rudder not moving right before the 2nd flight on the table. My buddy Gerry assisted me and saw the Rudder Rod moving without the Rudder and it was the Set Screw that came lose! Gerry gave me his HEX tools and found the right size and tightened the Set Screw and all was okay!

Just an amazing display of formation flying between Joe's Carbon T-28 Trojan 78-inch wing span and my Hangar9 F4U-1D 50-size Corsair Electric!

Two large RC Electric models side by side!

We even looped on my mark of Three, Two, one and it was spectacular and provided a good show for those there.

Some ground pictures of my Hangar9 Corsair and my Park Zone F4U Corsair (Original Version) side -by-side.
