Corsair: 115" ws D W Models?
Recently I pick up a "project" Corsair. The airframe is complete, but in dis-repair - no major damage. It can be saved with some work! The plane is decently detailed, but needs TLC. It is the early version of the Corsair. Let's say, the "price was right" !
It has a 115" wingspan.. fiberglass fuse, with a foam wing. Obviously, it has been sitting for a long tine as the servos and hardware are WAY outdated. It has a Q 100 with Robart retracts.
So - anybody ever hear of "D W Giant Scale Models" ? Google shows 1 hit for a Dwight Warner models?
I am looking for anyone who may have a little info on this plane, and how it will fly. Any concerns ??
My plan is to update the hardware and servos, fire up the old school Q 100, then fly it.
Will have to guess the balance point.. what? 25% of wing cord??
Hope to try it within a month.
Also, need a canopy as the included one is cracked? not a problem for the test flight, but if I like it, will need a replacement.... anybody have one? I suspect not. My friends and I have been building for 30 years, and none of us were faimiliar with D W models.
Maybe a Comp Arf canopy could be adapted?
If I really like it, maybe I'll put the DLE 111 I have sitting around in it over the winter. Hmmmm, or maybe an old 150 with a 3 blade prop ? Needs nose weight anyway!
