I agree with it after I started looking at my other corsair. I have an ESM 74" corsair with a g38 in it and it flys great. That plane with seirra gear and a retractable tailwheel comes in at just over 19 pounds and flys and lands great. So this one is not much heavier wing loading. Might have to pull the trigger but I want to use the saito 84 gas radial and while it might not fit this corsair it will fit the ESM corsair. Decisions, decisions... Lol. Either way the wifey might not like it.

On the list as well, Slightly confused on an issue. I have used air and mechanical retracts in the past but not electric. I have read several people in various places have suggested the electrics are not as good as the air for larger planes? I don't understand why they say this when the struts are the same just a different mechanism for actuation. BTW, I to want to use the Saito 84, has anyone tried the after market cowl?

Electric retracts are just the same as air, they just have an electric motor where the air cylinder would be. I have replaced all mine for ease of use. I have an ESM Corsair, and FW190 and a H9 30cc size mustang and p47. The ESM planes have Sierra gear that was converted and the H9 have robarts that were bought electric. I will never buy air again. Electrics are to easy to use. I will say that for this one I am going to try and see if Sierra has a set for it over the robarts. Sierras are a beefier gear.

Well I just talked to Horizon and mine is on it's way.....

It's just the model as the other stuff is yet to arrive (I do already have the electric main gear and wheels/tires but no tailwheel) but according to the CS rep I talked to, the rest of the items are supposed to arrive by the end of August or maybe the first part of September.

I was upstairs in my office having a meeting with 2 co workers ,when I heard the UPS door bell ring, we scrambled... Everyone working today knew all the airplane guys have been waiting for this bird for months - we are working with a 15 day build window to be ready for an upcoming event . We about jumped the UPS man and finally we ripped off the packaging to review this beauty. Impressed and then some.

1st thing i noticed is the immense center section - it is beefy thick wood tieing into the landing gear plates and thick fiberglass painted with thick glossy paint

Fuse seems to be fatter and have a bit more "shape" to it than a topflite and although the wingspan is close it just seems a bit bigger , maybe I was overcome with new airplane fever though.

Cowl mounts internally so you see no screws - it looks slick , Paint is as good as it gets appears to be automotive or equivalent -- I will definitely add some epoxy or aeropoxy to the inside cowl mounts ... just because

We are working with robart electric retracts and tires - they came in a week or 2 ago and we tested them today . They are very pleasing to the eye- the operation is nice and scale very slow the way we had it set up and it just looked really neat

aluminum spar is very thick- double what i was imagining - that is a good thing wing test fitted very well

I have never had a plane in 30 years of modeling that had pre drilled servo mount screw holes ... wow

Front wing dowels socket/support is a plastic of some sort which will avoid wearing of the typical plywood socket in this type of design nice touch

so many other things but ill stop there for now.

Mine arrived Friday. I peeked in the box but not much else. I have to get a BUSA cub off the table first. I went with the 777 and the electric retracts.

I'll be watching the early adopters for tips.. :-)

Scott.

How bout the new DLE 85 with isolastic mount? You can then run a decent size 3 blade, Good price too compared to the Evo 77 or DA 85.

I was thinking a Dle 85 and understand they are new - but the numbers i saw for prop size and rpm werent as good as EVO but MAINLY ...I had an EVO sitting around

I think that it would be a great choice if you want to have a fast bird- and I imagine once the DLE 85 gets circulated its performance will rival others in its class.

Ill try to get more pics soon

Are you considering a 4 blade prop for the DLE 85?

The color of the blue on the plane in Bucky's photos doesn't look as dark as the color of the plane promoted on the Horizon Website (Below).

The photos from the shop more accurately portray what your eyes will see. For some reason the photos on our website make the Corsair look darker than it does in person.

Im going with a 26 x 10 -2 blade prop Menz with the tips rounded and Scale paint job ..... I am going for speed
***For those of you thinking of using the Evolution 80 - the EVO wraparound pitts muffler HH offers will not fit without cutting a big chunk out of firewall for clearance . I am looking for a typical box with 2 down pipes style which will be no problem Jtec has them for sure and others.
Overall installation of this engine went smooth - you do have make a hole in firewall for carburetor clearance as expected. (pics coming Wednesday)
I will try to keep you guys updated

100 off is a good deal but it won't make or break this plane. There is still another 1200 at least to go for all the gear, probably more. This will be one of my more pricey models, but I got to see them in person at joe nall and They look nice. Now if I can just find a way o fit the fg84 in it I will be in heaven!! Lol.
