RE: GROUP BUILD - Top Flite Giant Scale F4U Corsair

I've never owned one of the Evolution engines, but the ones I've seen around here seem to have issues. There's been a number of the 116's which just siezed up in mid air with bearing problems, the...

RE: GROUP BUILD - Top Flite Giant Scale F4U Corsair

Well I don't usually chime in much as I'm kind of a lurker.... :)

Got all, or most of the parts for my Corsair but no real place to build the thing and so I tend to play mostly with GS IMAC...

Hmm.....

Sounds like a perfect time to make the move to A123 batteries.....;)

Hey George,

Yeah I check out all the new posts that come in but not much I can add to the questions at hand so I usually just lurk....:)

Umm....

While it is technically correct that Great Planes and TopFlite might be considered one in the same as they are both owned by Hobbico (as is Tower Hobbies), you might find it difficult to...

RE: GROUP BUILD - Top Flite Giant Scale F4U Corsair

Well first off, I'm a bit suspicious of the numbers posted in the article and that's why I mentioned it and wondered if the numbers were accurate. They may not be, but buying recently released...

RE: GROUP BUILD - Top Flite Giant Scale F4U Corsair

RE: GROUP BUILD - Top Flite Giant Scale F4U Corsair

"both 6 volt batteries"?

Do you have dual flight packs for redundancy, or are you talking about one rx pack and one ignition pack?

IF it's dual rx batteries and you were trying to charge...

RE: GROUP BUILD - Top Flite Giant Scale F4U Corsair

Since this thread pertains to the TopFlite 1/5 scale Corsair which is not only a different manufacturer but quite a bit larger than your H9 model, you may not find what you're looking for here. There...

RE: GROUP BUILD - Top Flite Giant Scale F4U Corsair

Well guess I wasn't too far off..... :(
