    RE: KMP Corsair

    Hi Gents,

    I have had couple of folks who have this corsair recommend a dle-20, I was going to go with a 30 but I think that would be better suited for the P-39 I just got. Anyone who has flown the model have any constructive thoughts on a DLE-20 in this bird?

    TIA

    RE: KMP Corsair

    Rate1 I was wondering if you had got you tail wheel in? I got my bulkhead built and am getting ready to install mine. I ran into one problem. The tail hook linkage is running into the bar for the tail. I am thinking of taking it off. I have the rudder installed and pull pull set up on it. Getting the bulkhead in and all the controls connected is going to to be fun. Lol. If I can get some pics to upload I will post them.

    RE: KMP Corsair

    I just got my Aune tail gear and was wondering if your shock absorber binds? Mine only moves about 1/8" and binds even in that short distance.

    RE: KMP Corsair

    Skillet, I haven't installed the tail wheel permanently yet as I have been too busy. However I have mounted the new bulkhead and test fitted the wheel and it fits perfect. I dont plan on using the tail hook but would like to see a picture of yours. I will install it perm when I get the gear doors on.

    tevans, Yes there is not too much action in the spring/shock absorber. Just enough to not make the tail wheel gear static and possibly damage the bulkhead as I see it. I belive it will do fine as it's. Also Aune's instructions call for fiberglass on the bulkhead to make it strong/fuel prof. I am very happy with my bulkhead.

    My build will be a little on and off as I have kids at home taking most of my free time. Then again there is no rush as there is pretty much off season for rc here.

    Finished mine with a RCGF 26cc up front, plenty of power. I did not add any right thrust at all and it flies perfect.

    RE: KMP Corsair

    I just finished my ESM Corsair. It has a DLE 35 and Sierra retracts with an Earl Aune tail wheel. I changed the paint scheme slightly using Porter Paint exterior latex. I installed a Tys cockpit. The pilot is a Aces of Iron bust and a Century Jet bottom to create a full pilot. I put two 3000 mAh nicads under the cowl for weight and they are a dual setup throught a Smartfly Batshare. Also used a Tech-Aero Ultra BEC to run the ignition off the receiver batteries.

    Beautiful! That's just about exactly how I hope to build one someday. Very nice plane.

    Thanks, Flight21

    This is my fourth ESM/KMP plane. I really enjoy their planes. They are not exactly ARFs and they leave a lot of room for innovating in your own ideas (and the ones I copy from others here on RCU).

    RE: KMP Corsair

    Tevens55 I have the same tail wheel and love mine. Have you flown yours yet? I have not flown mine yet and used a G-38 converted to EI for power. Seems like enough. How much did yours come out weighing and where have you balanced yours.

    RE: KMP Corsair

    I have not flown it yet as I am still doing some engine adjustments and vibration testing. Mine weighs 18.75 lbs. and I believe I balanced it at either 4.25 or 4.5 inches. Weather here is a little cold and damp...will probably wait till Spring for maiden flight.

    RE: KMP Corsair

    Thank you. Mine came in around 19.3 and is balanced right at 4 1/2. My first was balanced there but I had no retractable tailwheel. It came in in the 18.5 range. Flew like a baby. I lost it when the engines ignition crapped out and locked out the radio. Had plenty of power with the G-38 turning a 18x8 xoar. With about half flaps it just floated in. Just like you I am waiting to get some good weather to maiden this one. Love the look of the corsair. I have an ESM P-51 with a dle 30 and have an ESM FW-190 on the bench for a winter project. Good luck on your maiden.

    Why do they call it "dead weight" if it keeps your airplane alive?

    I was thinking of maybe doing the ESM P-51B next. Is it a good flyer? I also have the Spitfire which I have really enjoyed and the B-25 which only has one flight so far.

    Just nerves, and not paying attention to where the flap lever was.
    The little I used added lift but no braking. The plane didn't want to settle in.

    At 16.5 lbs with over two lbs of lead on the firewall flaps were still not a necessity , but look really good deployed on final.

    Why do they call it "dead weight" if it keeps your airplane alive?

    RE: KMP Corsair

    Drifter. My first one I used about half flaps to get it to brake. Now mine was about 2 pounds heavier than yours. So that could be some of your flap tendencies. Looks like plenty of power.

    RE: KMP Corsair

    With the Earl Aune tail wheel/tail hook I could see it was going to take a lot of nose weight so I put 2 3000mAh NiCds in the cowl. You can see one of them in the photos above. It still required some additional lead to balance.
