    RE: CARF F4U-1 Corsair build thread

    Well guys, we have a shot. Static was I think 93.3, but Dino posted a 96.75 on the second flight. The first was a throw away. Had to abort due to a couple problems. A twitch in the controls that flipped the plane inverted on the down wind (a flap wire was chaffing on the wing fold arm inside the port wing, causing the outboard port flap to deploy acting like an aileron), and then the port steering wire to the tail wheel came loose. Both problems were masterfully handled by Dino, but he decided to abort the flight. Got a score of 66 or so on what he completed. Mostly 10s and high 9s, a real shame. That will be the throw away.

    The second flight was mechanically flawless.

    Thanks guys. Dino got a 10 on realism from both judges on his last flight. She really does look great in the air, as we knew she would.

    RE: CARF F4U-1 Corsair build thread

    Here is a few That I took. Congrats to the whole team on the victory. I was also given permission to use another persons pictures that he gave me on a big mistake from the flight line crew.
    On the third round Dino was scoring 10's on the flight, also in the air was a 1/4 scale Hawk. I'm guessing that both the hawk and Dino called for landing and both were given permission to land. Because of the sun shades the judges were using it was almost impossible to see the final turn to landing. So guess what..........The hawk was turning final and lined up with the runway as Dino is completing his second 180 degree turn to final. The Hawk comes over the threshold with Dino hot on his tail. Dino finally spots (It was in everybody's blind spot) the hawk and yells to the judges and flight line crew that he is deviating from the runway. As masterfully as he could Dino slips a little rudder in and settles on the runway right beside the hawk.
    To say it was close would be an understatement.
    Just to tell you how crazy all of this was, it happened again on the fourth round. Although it was caught early and Dino orbited a few times and landed

    RE: CARF F4U-1 Corsair build thread

    I am sorry I have not had time to reply to all the comments posted on the thread. Thank you to all of you who have been watching the progress on how this all came together. Also thank you for the great personal remarks as well. Its greatly appreciated!
    Dom, Gary, Brian, Wayne, John and my girl Kim really made the "Team" I cant thank them enough. The odds were against us from the beginning. The first time I ever saw Big Hog had been on Monday night in the hotel room. The first flight had been on Tuesday. We had some major bumps that would have prevented us from finishing the competition but I am very glad that we worked through them.
    David Hays's team did a great job with their model resulting in a 97+ static. I might add that David had some very good flight scores as well locking them in 1st place. Our static came to a 93+ and my flight scores were just not high enough to catch up. I am VERY satisfied with our team's efforts to get us on the top. They all did their jobs more than I could ever expect or ask for. Thanks guys, you are all FIRST CLASS!
    Big Hog, thanks for the experience.

    I am not sure about the video this year as Propwash and SKS did not interview us after Static.
    Thought that was a little strange after all the press that it received. I figured that with all the features it would add to their collection but as far as I know it wont be on the tape.

    The difference between 1st and 2nd..............1.157 points

    Dinos flight score were much higher but it was lost in static.
    none the less a great showing.
    Congrats guys.
