Don't have a top flite corsair...

It's powered with a DA 85. She is a hoot to fly. I bought it second hand and plan to re-finish it when I get a little more time on it.

Sign me up to the brotherhood I have a .60 size TF Gold Series partially built I want to rework. I traded a Goldberg Cub kit and a ST .40 (made in Italy) for this airplane. The wing is built with Robart retracts and 4 3004 Futaba servos installed. The Robart air chuck was mounted through the fuselage side with a plywood cutout glued to the outside. Its as ugly as you just imagined. The balsa skin of the wing in the inboard area needs a little rework too. I traded figuring I would at least get a good set of retracts and 4 servos out of the deal. The Corsair is an added bonus. I got the trade because they guy that had it was liquidating an R/C Estate and he hadn't been able to sell it for a year and a half. The kit and engine he sold in a week so he was happy with me getting the better value. Besides who doesn't like a Corsair?! It's a beautiful airplane in my book! I have a TF 182 I'm still working on and I will probably power the Corsair with a Super Tigre .75 with an in cowling muffler like I am on the 182. I want to add a retractable tail wheel and hook as well. I haven't decided if I want to go blue or something a little lass common as in post # 53 above.

Just picked up a pair of Corsairs, an Old Top Flight 60 Corsair that I am converting to Eflight Power 90, and a CY 93" Corsair that had been crashed, both need lots of work, but I am happy as can be, as I have always wanted a corsair or two.... Every Corsair needs a good pilot no? He is 3d printed and his head moves with rudder.

LOL I love the Snoopy in the one plane! The TF looks like it has been practicing scale gear failure landings.

Yes that 1/7 scale Corsair looks like it survived WW2. Lots of work to be done there, and the landing gear is the major focus at the moment.

What brand of retracts does your Top Flite Corsair have? Mine has the Robart setup with large air tank.

It currently has century Jet retracts, but they are faulty and need to be rebuild...and now Century Jet is no longer operating, so I am sourcing electric replacements.

The one thing I do like about Robart they do offer a conversion for their pneumatic gear if I ever want to upgrade.

Do this at your own risk... I changed mine over to electric because I was developing an air leak. This was the worst decision I could have made. My gear spend most of a year at Robart, on several different trips. They never did get them to function correctly. I went back to air, and no more problems.

I doubt I would ever convert to electric I do prefer air myself. But you know what they say never say never or you may eat your words at some point.

This is my new Corsair. 75" span and 12 lbs; flying on 8S 5000mah batt, Castle 100 amp esc, and Turnigy SK3 with an 18x8 prop. Flys really well. Kind of fragile as it's 3d printed.
