Default alfa models corsair

i will try to get some pics soon.i have had this plane for long time flown with many different e motors from 100watt to 400 watts. was about to give away when seen my wasp .061's on the shelf.

i am using the motor all stock. not a stong engine but enough for this plane for sure. Spins APC 6x4 gas prop at 15,400. i have a 3" rubber hose connected to the muffler then to a large light weight carbon tue running to back of plane exiting near the elevator. this had to be done since the cowl is so short on this plane and engine would get enough airflow if didnt have this set up this way. cooling air will blow over head and muffler into fus and out bottom of the plane behind the wing like the stock set up.

it is running about 240 sq" and on the scale with no fuel in the 1 ounce tank it was 12.83 ounces. i am guessing i should have about 13 ounces of thust on this plane so should fly ok slow but this plane flys great at 20mph or 120 mph

i have some micro retracts and thinking of getting the alfa mustang with 200 sq" and add retracts to it with a .074.
