    RE: CMP 160 sized Texan

    IMHO, if this is your first bigger model, that's all the more reason to spend a few bucks and get a good reliable motor. I understand where you're coming from though. The G26ie is quite a bit more...

    RE: 1/8 scale TopFlite Corsair Mods

    I've very successfully used the method of gluing strips of 1/64th ply to simulate ribs. It works quite well and is both strong and light.
    I have removed covering from the rudder of an ARF then did...

    Lookin' good Dax!
    It's pretty amazing what you can do with the photo-realistic images anymore.

    That's one thing I liked about the Miss Victoria T-6. There were no pre-applied decals.

    RE: 1/8 scale TopFlite Corsair Mods

    Just finished my oil coolers. Here's what I came up with. I did what corsairjock did and used a piece of screen and flipped the slats from right to left and squared up the inside edges. I gave it...

    RE: 1/8 scale TopFlite Corsair Mods

    Jock,

    Your oil coolers look awesome. I'm working on mine for the first time and have the same piece of screen for mine. I think it was for a faucet aerator.

    My Sierras moved a little too at first and then after one retightening they never moved again.

    Also for those of you with the Zenoah G26ei, be very careful to NOT OVERTIGHTEN the prop nut. There is a double threaded shaft in the end of the crank that is only 4mm on the...

    That's where mine is. Just try to keep it away from your receiver and radio battery especially if you're flying 72mhz.

    RE: 1/8 scale TopFlite Corsair Mods

    I took some time away from my Corsair to finish my 1/6 AT-6 and now I'm back on the Corsair. I just got my engine about a month ago. It's a Saito 100 twin. The exhaust will be 2 flex lines exiting in...

    Wow that's a big motor for that plane. With all that power I thought you were going to drag your car across the lawn.

    telejojo,

    Did you install the gear door covers? I had to trim mine a little before my Sierra gear would go down all the way.

    I did mine inverted (I think that's easier on a low wing aircraft) and close to the fuselage. If I remember right they give you a measurement from the leading edage of the wing and another from the...

    The hole I made for mine is like a rounded teardrop shape. You just need it big enough to put the round end of the plug boot straight in and then rotate it all the way through. I'll see if I can get...

    Thanks for the compliment on the video. I fly at half throttle most of the time and only go to full for takeoff climb, steep climbs, loops, etc.
