RE: CMPro F4u Corsair

I am finally working on my Corsair again. I sold my robart retracts I was going to use on this and bought the Century Jet retracts. They are definitely beefier that the robarts so I am glad I did. I...

RE: CMPro F4u Corsair

I'm not crazy about the look of the sierras. They don't look very scale. Maybe if the torque links were added, it would make them look better. Of course this makes them $60 more than the CJs. Has...

RE: CMPro F4u Corsair

That's what I bought for mine. It's either the 16X10 or the 16X8. I was going to run a gallon through mine and then put the 16X10 on and see what kind of RPMs I get. I am now having second thoughts...

RE: CMPro F4u Corsair

I ended up ordering the SPE26 as well. It should be here any day. I prefer gas to glow so this made it an easier decision. I am definitely interested to see how it is going to fit in person. Right...

Spektrum and Carbon Fiber

I don't want to sound repetitive if this question has been asked before. I tried searching and RCU wasn't cooperating...Is spektrum safe to use with a carbon fiber fuselage? I just got the module for...

RE: CMPro F4u Corsair

Cool, thanks. Did you use the 50mm standoffs sold by BCMA or did you use some other method of moving the engine forward? I was going to call them to see if I could get bigger standoffs instead of the...

RE: CMPro F4u Corsair

How does she fly with this engine. The fact that the only required holes are exhaust holes and cooling exit makes me interested. You can't beat the price for what you get. Are you happy with this...

RE: CMPro F4u Corsair

My buddy just told me about these props today. Much better than the solo as far as price. They look nice. The price is still a little on the steep side. Do you know the distance from the prop shaft...

RE: CMPro F4u Corsair

I was originally going to use the RCV120. The problem is that the three-blade props it requires are hard to come by in a scale shape. The only three options I know of are the APC (not scale...

I ordered a CMP corsair and expect to receive it this week. I am stuck away from home and trying to decide on my engine. Could someone give me the dimensions of the cowl? I really just need the width...

RE: ZeroGravity Pitts Python 42"

RE: ZeroGravity Pitts Python 42"

Great thread. I just ordered one myself. I opted for "local pickup" so hopefully that will help me get it sooner. I almost ordered the e-flite pitts but kept hearing about the great reviews of the...

I purchased a used corona from a guy on RCG. I am finally getting it ready to fly (crash) and have a few questions. When I first got it, I spun it up and noticed there...

RE: Fuel Line

Thanks for the help. I am holding out slight hope that the local hobby shop will have the hayes. I hate ordering from tower and paying $9 for shipping on a $30 order. Thanks again.

Hey guys,

RE: Pics of FLoats

Thanks for the quick reply Bud. Bondo came to mind but I hadn't heard frm anyone that did it. I might give it a shot. My floats are going on the Kangke Monocoupe, so too much scale detail one the...

Anyone know of a good source of pics that show the rivets and details (panel lines) of floats? I am in the process of finishing the floats for my monocoupe. I got the rivets and I'm ready to start,...

RE: A MonoCoupe Float Plane in the makeing. any others?

RE: Top Flite DC-3 Question

Thanks for the input. I'm not too worried about having enough power. It seems like as long as both engines are running, the plane will fly with just about anything. I was more interested in finding...

RE: Twinstar Flaperons

Aren't you running the huge risk of causing a tip stall by dropping the ailerons down out towards the wing tip? I've never flown a twin star but I wouldn't try dropping strip ailerons down as flaps...

RE: Top Flite DC-3 Question

Thanks for the info. It seems like the only engines that would fit would be way too much power and more additional weight than I'd like. Hopefully someone will hook me up. Thanks again.
