    RE: ESM 50cc Corsair

    Yeah it does. I've purchased dozens of planes and this has never happened.

    VQ tells me that I'll get a plane or a refund, as soon as Fedex lets us know what happened. One thing people should remember, VQ ships the planes as indirect signature. Fedex says that anyone can sign for the plane, neighbors, anyone. You may want to consider requesting direct signature when you order a plane from them.

    But as to why Fedex would take the plane to the wrong address, is beyond me.

    Hill202,

    It happens with FedEx. I too, tracked my shipment only to find it was delivered and signed by someone somewhere. Luckily, the next day the driver remembered where he dropped off my boxes and they where retrieved. The plane ended up a mile away on a loading dock of a small factory and signed by someone inside. In my location I always use UPS if I have a choice mainly because the FedEx distribution center is an hour away whereas UPS is 15 minutes away. FedEx will most likely find you shipment today.

    I hate that it happened to you but thanks for sharing. It gives me some hope. The name that signed for the plane on the tracking info is an unusual name and I live in a fairly small town. There is only one person listed with that name. I called the number and got a voice mail. I googled the name and got an address. I went to the address, not to confront anyone, and the house is probably 3/4 million home, very nice neighborhood. This place was 6 miles from my house and the address did not resemble mine. There were no cars at the house and a newspaper in the driveway. I don't think that is where the plane was delivered.

    RE: ESM 50cc Corsair

    It happens to me about once a quarter. In my case, it happens with both carriers and USPS. Fortunately, it's delivered the next street over due to very similar street names, Grace Brook and Grace Branch. Same house number. You might look into that possibility if you've not already.

    RE: ESM 50cc Corsair

    Fedex contacted me and gave me the address to the place where it was delivered in error. I went there and the people were home but would not come to the door. This was not a big fancy house it was a dumpy looking place. I could hear people inside. Fedex says they are going to go there and attempt to retrieve it. I told them that at this point I feel the best thing for me to do is refuse the package, if its been opened.

    This is between VQ and FedEx now. I'm done with it.

    Smart thinking yes but I decided to heck with smart, I want my plane. I went back and banged until they answered. They had the plane and only opened the outer box so I picked the plane up and brought it home.

    I have not asked this but this is a good beginner plane right?

    RE: ESM 50cc Corsair

    Just trying to inject some humor , I'm just glad its here. The only damage that I can find is a dent in the fuse. Its not creased or torn and you can push it back out but it pops back in. I'll figure something out on that. I was hoping that with ordering the plane late like this, that I might would get one with out left thrust but this one has it also.

    But thanks to all the good information here, I'll be able to work through these issues.

    RE: ESM 50cc Corsair

    Good on ya going and demanding your plane! I would still be going after fedex with a big stick. What the hell is the point of indirect signature???????? Glad we dont have that over here!
    Its a pretty easy plane to assemble - throw a couple of tubes of epoxy and CA in the box, shake well, and VOILA! instant Corsair! Usual advise - read the forum and ask questions if your not sure. Thats what we are here for.
    As you have probably read, the plane flys really well. Smooth and controlable with good maners. You will love it!

    Boast time..... I'm off to watch the first public flight of the worlds only working Mosquito this weekend! Hopefully will be my next big model project! I cant wait!!!

    RE: ESM 50cc Corsair

    Tomas told me that he had some complaints about sending planes direct signature. Guys were not home to sign for it and the wives could'nt. I think Tomas thought that indirect allows only household family members to sign but FedEx says that anyone can sign indirect. Like you said Stoat, whats the point?

    Well, yes, that has happened to me. They deliver to the nearest neighbour in that case.

    But in general, I stay away from UPS, Fedex, DHL and all that ****. I allways select USPS or, if
    another country, the standard "local mail". Or don't order. It ends up in the post office.

    What the heck, its all air mail anyways.

    And I avoid all that paper stuff that comes via mail a week or two later, allways makes me wonder if
    the want more money from me. Difficult to say from the pile of papers I get.

    Try heating the fuse, pop it out and put something behind it until it cools..

    Thanks, I was planning something like that. Its not too bad but sometimes I tend to be a perfectionist. I'm not sure how well this pic shows it. The dent is where the star is.

    If heating doesn't work, try adding a former in there. Had the same problem an an ESM Spitfire, tried heating and pushing out on it unsuccessfully. A former did the trick.

    A former would do the trick but access is extremely limited. You have to get past one former to get to the area.

    I see they are still pairing the elevator cable guides with the rudder and the formers are as straight as ever.

    Looking at and handling this plane in person, will give you a deeper appreciation for the work you guys have done with your planes. Sliding canopys, pilots that turn their heads, weathering. Thats impressive stuff.

    I'm pretty sure my pilot will only be able to look straight ahead
