    RE: Top Flite Giant Corsair ARF Disappeared.

    It is a shame but I talked to Roy at TOP GUN and he told me that the fellow that was making them for him stoped . I also had Vallencourt pilot in my last Corsair.

    thanks Bob

    RE: Top Flite Giant Corsair ARF Disappeared.

    Thanks for the leads guys at least now I've got some options. Just ordered the new Robart Electrics the other day, should be picking them up early next week, can't wait to see how they work. As far as the gear doors go, I saw a technique on another thread, looks pretty fool proof, here's the link. http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_84...16/key_/tm.htm

    Anybody tried this before?

    Thanks,

    John

    RE: Top Flite Giant Corsair ARF Disappeared.

    Yes you can. I am not a mind reader. Is there a manufacturing problem our was this human error? It would be nice if you can tell all of us what happened so we do not make the same mistake.

    Sure you can. What good does it do to warn someone about something if they don't know what you are warning them about?

    RE: Top Flite Giant Corsair ARF Disappeared.

    There are (4) 4-40 bolts that hold each wing panel on. I do not see how the wing can come off if all four bolts are secured correctly. Why don"t you ask your friend what happened? Did the aft carbon tube come loose or did the aluminum spar fail somehow? I feel at this point and time it has to be a human error on his part, like forgetting to secure the wing with the bolts or not tightening them correctly.

    RE: Top Flite Giant Corsair ARF Disappeared.

    Just finishing up the Top-Flite Corsair. I have the special muffler on order and should be here this weekend. Plane went together really well as most Top-Flite products do. Will post the final weight when ther muffler is installed. With the older and heavier muffler installed, 10 ounces of nose made the plane heavy. The old and bigger Jtech muffler weighed 9 ounces.

    Mine is from BestPilots.com *

    *
    Let me give you a "heads-up" on that Bob Sweeny pilot we both have.
    Great looking pilot.....but after about twenty fights in my GS TF P-51 he broke off his head by the shoulders and bounced around at a warbird show I was attending.
    This did not make me very happy when I paid this much for a pilot.
    The pilot is light weight and very thin in the neck area.
    Had to take off my glued and screwed nice canopy and unscrew him from the seat back.
    I took a dowel and stuck up in his head and sillconed that in overnight while upside down in my little vice.
    Next day I used that expandable foam and about filled his body (light weight) with this and stuck the dowel down into that stuff.
    Looks and feels solid now.
    IF....... I get another new pilot I will cut a hole in his bottom and fill with foam, hopeing to enforce the neck area.
    My plane uses a DA 50 with a well balanced carbon prop so that is not the problem.
    Good luck.
