    RE: CMP F4U Corsair 50 Build Log

    How did you guys set the thrust angle in the plane. Also how do you measure it??? Not with a angle finder I hope it seems it would be hard to read such a small angle. One more thing, how do align the motor so it lines up axactly with the center of the cowl. I know these sound like and are newby questions, but for the 2 years I have been in the hobby I have never had to do these procedures. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    There should be 2 ply rings that fit into the recesses in the fuse - see post #7

    Long tube for tailwheel - see post #14

    There is a preset thrust angle on the firewall, and some guide lines for aligning the engine mounts - these worked OK for me with both 55 AX and 91 FS 4-stroke

    To measure the thrust line is quite hard - I did it once using a old 45 rpm vinyl record instead of prop (that's the prop plane), and a string along the fuse centre line. I have seen also posts where ppl measure it using lasers!

    RE: CMP F4U Corsair 50 Build Log

    Thanks Nick for the reply. My firewall has about a 1" hole in the center and 4 lines, striaght up and down and side to side. It appears that the vertical lines look offset a little. Is this correct for linning it up? Thanks for your advise. Monte

    RE: CMP F4U Corsair 50 Build Log

    My experience with CMP says yes the refrence lines you mention are accurate and yes suppose to be offset, once you set the engine to these marks it will make more sense to you because you'll be able to see it, rather then visualize it

    RE: CMP F4U Corsair 50 Build Log

    Monte,
    Which engine do you plan to use? if its a 50-60 2-stroke or a 70 4-stroke then place it as far forward as you can on the mounts.

    To dry fit the engine before drilling: First highlight the lines on the firewall using a white or silver felt pen. Attach the engine on the mounts using strong clamps and then hold the fuse nose-up and place the mount on the firewall. Align it on the guide lines, then you can eyeball the prop shaft relative to the fuse centreline to make sure all is correct.

    You might have to change the mount position relative to the firewall guidelines if you plan to install the engine at a different angle than intended in the plans (e.g. inverted instead of 90 deg.)

    Measure twice, cut once!

    I have a new os 61 2 stroke with a pitts muffler for it. I think it should pull it along well.

    RE: CMP F4U Corsair 50 Build Log

    I guess a Magnum 52 4-stroke will pull it but not very excitingly, if you see what I mean

    A fiberglass fuse is much heavier than balsa, AUW would be around 3kg

    4-strokes in a radial-type cowl are usually mounted inverted (exhaust will be at 4 o'clock) or engine mounted at 8 o'clock and exhaust will be at the bottom of the cowl

    Please be sure to tell us how the Lander electric landing gear performs for you. A friend of mine had robart air retracts on his and they were terrible. They kept bending the mechanism that made them rotate. The landers look better to me!!!! Cheaper, easy to install, and shock absorbing. What could be better!!!!!!! Good luck with them!!!!

    RE: CMP F4U Corsair 50 Build Log

    Use a hinge to attach the plates on the wing in front of the retract bay and wrap a wire around the strut at the other end of the plate, this way the strut will be able to rotate as it pulls the plate open

    Probably too much trouble for what's it worth, you can maiden the plane and do this add-on later

    I've used MAS 12x8x3 on a Kyosho FW-190 that's similar size and weight. I got 9,000 RPM with plenty of thrust and 10 min flight time using 1/2 tank only

    Did I mention the realistic sound

    RE: CMP F4U Corsair 50 Build Log

    .Still waiting on retracts should be here in a couple days. had a question on the FA-80 Saito , I screwed the muffler arm tight and was wanting it to exit on bottom right but it stopped to where it is exiting crossway on the bottom .My question is can this be adjusted. and another problem is my throttle linkage is up against the motor mont bolt where it bolts into firewall.The linkage moves but where i need to run the wire the mount bolt is right in behind it.Stuck on these 2 things.Any help would be appreatched.

    1: move the engine forward on the mount (this will help with CG - trust me)

    2: use an EZ link on the throttle lever, this should move the pushrod away from the engine mount
