I agree with vic. Lets stick to the subject matter

This thread should be about info on the KMP Corsair NOT a wishing well...

Just my opinion, V.

I would say go and open a new KMP big bird wish tread and keep this one off this so later on if anyone wants to reed it he don´t need to go trough houndreds of replies not to the topic
BTW guys from KMP/YT needs to sell the planes. If it will be some minor type with not to big interest they will loose money. That is why there are so many mustangs for example
btw the late 109 (G-14 or K) or Mk.IX spit would be nice

The folding wings on the Bearcat were manually operated. You could have them but operating them mechanically would not be a scale function if that is of any concern.

Back on the Corsair , can anyone tell from the pics if the cowl has the cowl flap lines ? Any rudder details ? It was easy to see the extensive details on the cowl and tail area on the FW190 , but cant seem to see if the details are on the Corsair

Pretty much all of KMP's planes have panel line and details on the composite parts. The only parts that don't are the built up parts.

Thanks , I have no problem adding details and this plane will be no exception , I simply cant tell from the pics if the cowl has the vent lines or if they do it was modeled with them shut , but they are still apparent on the real plane even when completely closed

LDM, I've got two larger pictures of the KMP Corsair prototype. What I can make out from them is that there is a line for the "row" of cowl flaps but not for the individual flap itself.

Hope this helps,
V.

Hi Andrew,

I just ordered mine throught the european dealer (Lindinger).

What about engine choice?

Which is the best between Brillelli 26 gas and a MVVS 26 gas??

the first one is a lot cheaper then the second one.

Thanks

Alessandro

Silly question, and i would only ask this since the corsair is a gullwing aircraft, but is the measured wingspan of 74.2 inches measured in a straight line from wingtip to wingtip, or is that measurement taken by following the contours of the gull wing. Silly it may seem to ask this but i am interested and just curious to get a better idea of its scale and size etc.
Thanks.
Louie

Looking for opinions on a motor choice. Would a Zenoah G-38 swinging a 3 blade prop be too much motor for this plane?

cowl is 7inch diameter, the 38 would stick out everywhere, mine will be having either the MVVS 160, or a Zenoah 23, both will be ample

Wow, only 7 inches. I thought it would be larger for a plane that size. Oh well, I guess the G-38 will have to find another home.

I called today , there in but not out of the warehouse yet , cant wait to get mine , fully paid [X(]
As far as the cowl , the lack of scale lines for the cowl flaps usually seen on the Corsair seem to make the cowl appear closed vs slighty open as seen on many models of the corsair . I wonder if this makes the cowl more narrow in appearance ?

Thanks for checking on the size of the cowl. I'll check back.

Just as a point of reference, I have a Midwest AT-6 and YA zero, both slightly larger @ 82" and 80" wingspans, and the cowl diameter is 9 inches slightly tapering toward the front. The G-38 easilty fits in that diameter.

Default RE: KMP Corsair

The KMP site states the flying weight is 16 Pounds, and 17 Pounds with retracts, and I should hope that means all up flying weight, I know for a fact that a 26cc Gas engine would be pushing it for any plane of that weight class, since this is a warbird and honestly dont believe anyone here plans to limit their flying a corsair to just lazy circles , i believe this plane will need something bigger, perhaps 35 cc and Up. Scale flying is nice, but being underpowered on takeoff is a no no. So the big question is what kind of bigger gas motor than a 26cc be installed into this corsair, without cutting out this cowling too much. Also there seems to be varying opinions of what the cowling diameter of this plane actually is, some say 7 inches, some say bigger, I have even called kmp myself, and it seems the rep i had spoken with had to guess but said to me its "probably more like 8 inches". Anyhow i hope this can help gather facts, i'd like it to be a succesful model, because i want one.
Just my .02 cents

I hate to do this to you guys , but I just cant post pics over the next few days , (hockey Tourney ) .Hope to do so on Sunday !!!
Took delivery , nothing but first class . Seems light , the weight is in the middle gull wing , very nice surprise , while the adds say "all balsa wing the middle gull appear to be very well reinforced fiberglass sheeted wood . Strong gear rails and tons of visable good glue joints .
Panal lines on the center gull , fuse and cowl .
I took the retract option and I am very happy with the light weight appearance and the struts . The wheels are incredible but I may opt for the lighter ones that are included in the kit .The fuse is sweet , but there is still some tin canning in certain spots (nothing out of normal)
I am going with a Saito 180 , I want the sound of the 4 stroke . The early instructions called for a 120 and I know that Andrew and Paul have all said while it is desegned light and very strong a good 180 is ample power
I do think a G26 ei would work , I will try to weight the parts and see what they reveal .
