RE: GSP Zero

'Dragon' action figure pilot released 2 years ago, pretty rare nowadays. Stands a foot tall, but undersized for the GSP Zero!

RE: C160 transall build

I've just become another C-160'er !

RE: 40 Size Corsair Kits

Yup, just got a new one from 'Phoenix Models' ... ARF made in Vietnam, full-balsa, covered in Oracover. Dunno if that's available in your part of the world though... definitely not expensive.

Mode 1

Hey, guys...

I would really love to use more rudder in flight, but in my part of the world, we fly mode 1 ... (elevator/rudder + throttle/ailerons) and that makes it a little more difficult for us...

Canopy Tinting

Try the clear-color spray cans for polycarbonates from Tamiya. I believe they come in the primary red/blue/green... but check out 'smoke' grey. - make sure you're buying the CLEAR colors though!

Jamara 65 inch 1/8 scale Corsair ARF -Comments anyone?

Jamara 65 inch 1/8 scale Corsair ARF -Comments anyone?

Hey, John
I've got one, and I must say, it's been flying very well. It's made of full balsa, which gives it low wing-loading. It's a real floater as far as warbirds go! - a long, shallow approach...
