Would the Saito 170 R3 fit inside the cowl of the Corsair??

I am really excited about this warbird and thought the Saito would add that extra weight that is needed to get the CG in the right place.

First off , I dont know that there will be CG issues , the center section of the wing is beefy , if you choose to use the delux wheels that come with the retracts , then like with any plane that has aft rotatiing gear , you need to balance the plane with the gear up .
I think the Saito 180 will be more then enought power , the plane was tested with a OS 120 ( if I can recall the video ) , the plans in the kit call for a 120 , yes that will be substandard . I am going with the Saito 180 , I dont think I need a 225 4 stroke .
As far as in cowl fit , I onlt predict the heads sticking out slightly from the bottom , I will be purchaseing either a macs 90 degree bend of pitts style muffler with minimum scale disruption to the cowl .
THe one challenge will be putting in a full interior based on one of the fuse supporters inside . Easy to fix but added work .
The wing center is very detailed , allowing only the outside wing panel needing some panel lines . Cant wait to get started , this should be a really nive plane!!!!

Ok , when I get home tonight I will post come pics if its before 10:00 , the cowl is aprox 8 & 1/2" at the rear .
Opening is aprox 5 & 1/2 inches .
Length is aprox 6&3/4 at all edges with the exception of the top center of the cowl where there is a cowl flap extension aprox 7.5" .
Good details , supported by circular ply incert for attachment to the fuse in a scale manner .
Cowl has panel lines , recessed rivit detail
Cowl is 5oz , adding the circular ply incert makes it 6oz

ok lets hope this works , g26 ei in the cowl for comparison , very very happy with the quality !!!!
For those of you chooseing gas , you can get most of the engine (G26-ei in the cowl) if that is the engine of your choice , I will probably go with a saito 180

Bob , I dont think you will be happy with a 120 , I sincerly thing you need a saito 180 or , if you prefer YS , you can use a 140 , I dont know enought about the ST2300 . While plane is built light , the center section is beefy and you will want the extra power

Thanks LDM: I saw the big box you sent us!! I have been on holidays this past week and popped in to the office briefly only to see a giganto box on Kat's desk! I hope there is something left for me on Monday when I go back in.

RE the 1.20: When I flew the Corsair with 1.20 I found the plane to be somewhat sluggish in the air and had to fly mostly with 3/4 to full power. Climbing required full power and resulted in a steady but shallow rate of climb. Only about 6 oz was needed to balance the plane (fixed gear). A 1.50 fourstroke would be ideal or anything in that range. The 3cyl Saito 170 would fit as well.

HY Andrew how about a G-38 Corsair I would rather go gas then a 4 stroke. I think the gas is more reliable and also less maintenance. Do you think it would fit inside the cowl without having to cut it up t much?

thanks Bob

A 38 is quite a lot of power and be a tight fit. A G26 would power it very nicely and fit with ease.

I would agree with Andrew , I used the G26ei for comparison and you would virtuallu only have some of the plug sticking out , the cowl should swallow the rest

Hi AKondor

I already ordered the KMP Corsair. What would be the right 4stroke Motor. Would a Saito 170 radial be possible for the Corsair and completely fit under the cowling ?

Thanks!

Daniel

Just got my KMP Corsair in, and the details on this ARF warbird is incredible. I know there will be nay sayers on this but, i have a Brison 2.4 on the way. Something about that 74.2 inch gull wing is telling me to give her a 19x10 prop or an 18x10 three blade, if a suitable one can be found.
Yes indeed!

Awesome looking model.
Is there an Australian distributor for KMP? I had a look through some of the online shops I use, but none mentioned this brand.
Thanks

To my knowledge the 1.70 will fit (tightly). Its plenty of power and no nose weight will be required at all. You may infact need to move the battery toward the rear of the fuse.

Hey VeeAte,

Distributor in Oz for ESM (KMP) models is Austars Model in Sydney.

Their website is http://www.austars-model.com/

Really good to deal with, I bought my Typhoon from them.

I don't think they have the Corsair yet but it may be coming.

Check with them, Glen is the guy to talk to. Nice guy to deal with.

Cheers Tim
