I read earlier 250mm. The new saito radial 84cc will just fit but not if add right thrust.

Well, $1713.91 later and she's all on order... I have an adopted grandfather figure that helped raise me that flew one of these, I'll be modeling it after his Corsair in his honor. For years, I wanted the TF version but it just didn't look right so thank you Horizon/ Hanger9 for this one.

Ram, I have just the right guy for you. Lyle from Bestpilots will fix you right up.. If you have a front and side view of the man Lyle can have the head made for you and put it on his Pappy Boyington body along with the helmet, goggles etc.

I got a similar guy but I used Robert Conrad's face! lol.. Looks great by the way!

Ram what did you buy for $1713.91?
Plane, retracts, shipping?
Will you do a build thread on this one?

I got the Robart 5" Alum Wheels & Tires, White: F4U-1D Corsair 60cc, Robart Tail Wheel Electric Actuator: F4U-1D Corsair 60cc, Robart Main Gear (Air): F4U-1D Corsair 60cc, F4U-1D Corsair 60cc ARF , .
Retractable Tail wheel: F4U-1D Corsair 60cc, Shipping is free on this one, I don't know why and I didn't ask.. It's all on back order but they have my card so as it all comes available, it'll ship.


As you know, I only do FW190's so I have no experience with this one so I won't be doing a build thread. Customer service told me not to expect the airframe until early to mid august, just when we're moving but by then, I should have everything else for the plane so it'll be after we get situated that I even start this..[&o]

LOL, I was waiting for this response. Yeah, we'll, I'm not doing this one because I've gone to the dark side ( Luftwaffe aircraft for life), but as a thank you to the person that at an early age of my life, introduced me to aviation. This one will have it's place, not among the Luftwaffe....

Any Thoughts on the Evolution gx80 or Zenoah gt 80 I have the plane ordered, and these 2 engines sitting in my workshop .
I'm leaning toward the EVO 80 and Im pretty sure the Zenoah would be a squeeze fit if at all possible . I'm guessing the Horizon crew didn't choose these for a reason, being they have access to them .

Anyone ever run a EVO 80 vs a Da 85 from what I found it seems like the 80 is a powerful engine .

I have a friend running a DA85 on the TF P47 kit. He has a lot of vibration problems. Something is always coming loose in spite of heavy loctite use.Last week he had a one of his elevator servo horns come loose causing him to pancake the landing(severe landing gear damage) Other items coming loose include aileron servo horn,retract servo,several cowl screws and the throttle servo. He is now building a Zeroli Corsair and has decided to use a 70or80cc twin.

Lets see.. 56lbs of static thrust, max. The Corsair may weigh 30lbs or so.. maybe if you want to do 3D warbird flying.. otherwise. I wouldn't.

It won't fit without some clearance holes cut in cowl, from what people have been saying . But if it fits I would use it - Once I get a cowling in my hand I will try it

From the info I have seen the DLE 60 twin won't fit unless the cowl is cut a little for the plug caps. And to me that would be perfect as It has right at 33 pounds static thrust. That will probably be my engine of choice if I can figure away to modify the cowl. Maybe form little humps like blisters over the caps.

I do have one question on the retracts. Are they 90 or 100 degree?

Cool! Thank you. I believe this is going to be my winter project for next spring. I have the 30cc P-47 that I want to do first as soon as I get home. That one is going to be my fall project.

I had a Da 85 in a 1/4 P40 and it vibrated, but checking with DA and I found mine was an early model that could be sent in for free update to minimize vibration. I did and it worked to reduce vibration and now does not vibrate any more then any single producing close to 10 hp, I would check if you have an early model, good luck.

Are they 148 or 150?
