There is a video on you tube of one flying, looks ok. Lots of bad reports on their Corsair though. I'll probably pass. Lots of other projects in the works right now anyway.

Looking at it at the Toledo Show, and having the Saito. I don't think it's going to fit. They had the T/F Hellcat sitting by the Horizon 60cc Corsair, and the Corsair's cowl is bigger.
