Default T F CORSAIR THROWS

can't find the manual.[sm=bananahead.gif] what are you guys using for throws on the .60 size plane. low and hi rates. i heard the elevator is sensitive and will cause a snap like a Cap if too much throw is used.

Unless I am mistaken, Top Flite manuals are available/ downloadable online. Try a Google search for Top Flite.
I only use dual rates for initial flights, to determine best range. Once satisfied, I set both rates the same to avoid using wrong one.
Mine fly pretty well: stable and controllable with about 1/2" throw on elevators. These aircraft are not intended for wild manuvers, thus elevator throws do not need much. Too much throw and they can become overly sensitive during landings.

thanks. i went and checked the manual out. only a 1/2 an inch?

i got a little bit of work done to the plane yesterday. i worked on the elevator control horn. later i'm going to work on sealing up the tail. has anyone ever made a removable hatch to get to the hidden rudder and elevator linkages?

Throws on the real plane are (degrees):

Ailerons: 19 up, 14 down
Elevator: 20 up, 16 down
Rudder: 25 left and right
Flaps: 50

If the plane is balanced at 25% MAC, those should work ok but since the model will be flying faster than scale speed, the roll rate will be proportionately higher. 50% low rate on the aileron will give a scale 4 second roll.

Not on a Top Flite one yet, but here are pics of my highly modified, electric powered Hanger 9 Corsair.

1/2" is plenty. The Corsair can be very pitch sensitive.

nice work on the mods.
finished the tail. going to sand and fill. then final sand this weekend. then cover.
i have the wing covered already. if i can get the fuse covered this weekend, then i start with the radio.
then the engine. ol'boy has this new in the box O.S. .61 SF. i'm worried that it won't fly it and other people have told me the same.
