I have been working on the kit version of this model for the past three months, just curious to know if most builders are using the single servo option for the elevator? Also thinking ahead to paint options, and was wondering if anyone has used latex paints on the Carf Corsair instead of automotive type paints?

I used a single JR 8711 servo for the elevator. I used Tamiya spray can paints for the 3 color scheme which I thought were a great match and faded the colors in well, followed by Klass Kote clear satin finish. Mine came in at under the LMA1 limit at 54 lbs wet. I think latex paints will work as well and much cheaper. War Birds colors would work as well as they are latex. If you decide to epoxy clear over them, the latex needs to cure for a month.

Single servo on the elevator works just fine. The extra servo in the tail requires about 16oz more in the nose to balance. I have used War Bird Colors with good results. Clean the surface well then rough it up. The challenge is on the outer wing panels where the simulated fabric is. Much sanding and you loose the effect. I use a poly clear.

Hi. You seem to have captured the colors for the big hog perfectly, it looks great, any chance you might share your color codes? I know they are called navy blue, intermediate blue and white but there are so many shades available.. thanks again and happy new year..

Thanks...do you have the length of the standoffs for the 250 as well on hand? Or are they the same as for the 215 that was mentioned earlier in this thread?

Thanks.

Thank you ram 3500, information you have provided has been extremely helpful.

.812"
.875"

Same for 215/250

These are actual numbers they are machined to. Shortest is the upper port side, middle one is the lower port side.

The CAD is done and they are going through the fabrication bidding process. We are getting closer. Once a prototype comes out of manufacture, we will test it on our own 250, and 215. If all is well, full speed ahead. At this point, this is all being done by our fabricating partner. This frees us to concentrate on out other ongoing projects and parts. Should only be a short time to that first test piece.
i would love a follow up on this comment. Did you finish up this project?

Thanks for stopping Franky. My brother is my "wing man". He builds all the parts and systems related to the wings. I'll check with him on the source of those hinges and post here.
