Hi Graham,

mmmm i've noticed that too................I think i was a little hasty in uploading the link, it hadn't had chance to register itself on the account!

I have been uploading the other vids...............ALL BLOODY DAY lol lol, i'm on the last 2 now, but they are the biggest so may take the rest of the week lol lol

I'll link them as soon as they are sorted, or i think if people click on the links i have put on already they may be able to view the others that are on my putfile account (Sorry peeps i'm new to this and being blonde and from Essex it may take a while, lol).

I'll get them sorted as soon as i can, promise!!

Hi Eric,

Yes tiger is mine, and the XXL Corsair is a beauty, but it is the shipping to the US again that puts every one off.
I have our own one on the bench now ,and I'm just getting it all hinged up,so I will get some pics up for you,we will also have it down at the meeting we are going to this weekend,so If I ask Diane again she might take a vid of the Micro guns going off!!!!!
I might also use this thread as a follow on for the progress of the Corsair,can't wait to get that 3W 200i fired up on her!!!

That's strange about Alsa taking there time ,usually they are on the ball,give them a call.

Cheers Graham

A video of the guns would be great, that's a new one on me, working guns. Looks like a cap gun set up, SUPER idea! I can also relate to wanting to hear a 3W run, I have a 75us ti, waiting to run. It's my first gasser, so I hope for the best with it. I have it in a Hangar 9 33% Extra 330s, I'm told it will hover, and pull unlimited vertical, we'll see.

Hi Kentucky,

Yes the engines are nearly there just a bit of tweaking to do and the will be singing in harmony,It's a bit like tuning my old Kramer Beretta guitar as you can here them oscillating on the slightly different rpm's just like a guitar strings when they are slightly out of tune.

Hi Eric,

No these are not cap pistols they are Blank firing micro machine guns!!!!!! they hold 40 rounds of starting pistol blanks,and you can change the rate of fire through the on board speed control unit,so you can set it for all the 40 rounds to go off just like the A10 or have a good old RAT A DAT!!!!!.
I think Diane has got a vid of the gun going off,but I think it was from her old cam.

I was going to put the MOKI 215 Radial in the XXL Corsair but this was one of the first Mokis so it has seen a bit of use,but then I found the 3W200! this fits in the cowl like a glove and has no plug peaking out the sides like the DA150 would,the reason for this the twin plugs are on the angle,perfect,it's gona sound good with the scale exhaust too[)]
Cheers Graham.

How big are they?

How much do they weigh?

How much do they cost?

So many questions!

Howdy All, "GET OFF YOUR HORSE"

I thought you would like the Gun,yes they are very good,but rather£££££$$$$$$,I have sold a few through Tiger but not many so I will give you the link to Jetarrows, it's the same old story but I'm not sure if they will ship to the US,if not let me know and I will buy some more inn,only to order though.
Goose, i think you might only just have the one[)]

Thanks Diane for the Vid, I will do my best on the Southern C, that's if I don't crack it open!!!

Hi Eric, Jeff,

Yes thanks for the support guys,let's just hope the weather plays ball!!!!!!,just got to tweak with engines and a few small bits witch I can do on site,then I will be all of excuses,my only concern is, It's a grass strip and if wet it will stick like **** to a blanket,we will keep you all posted though.

We are also taking the big Corsa down, as one of the LMA inspectors wants to check the hinging and build,it will also be good to get some pics of them together to show you the size of the Corsair.

Cheers Graham.
