The Corsair build continues on, here are some construction pictures from yesterday's work

I installed my tank and my throttle servo, now all that remains is to button up the front and install the cowling.

The Cowl only required one cut a hole for the exhaust. The Evolution 77cc radial engine is a perfect fit and looks way better than the dummy engine. But those looks do come at a price :-) . I can’t wait to fire up this engine.

Today’s project is to install the scale cockpit in the corsair. All of the parts are included in the kit. Along with two canopies, a two piece one that can open and a single piece canopy that is closed.

This is the empty cockpit that will soon have all that stuff inside.

Here is my finished cockpit with my WWII pilot. If one was inclined they could really detail this thing out, which I will do at a future time. One of the reasons I went with a sliding canopy.

Attaching the front part of the sliding canopy. Not only does the rear part of the canopy move but it can also come off for any future work I may do inside the cockpit.

Now it is onto installing the bomb drops. There is a full proof way of laying out the pylon attachment holes outlined in the manual.

    GREAT LOOKING BIRD!

  2. Ron says:

    Is that the end of the reveiw? Finished photos, flight reveiw?

  3. Russ says:

    What battery did you use for the Robart electric retracts? Did you use a sequencer for the gear doors?

    • John Reid says:

      For now I am using the flight batteries (they are rather large) but I will be adding a separate one for the gears soon. The DX18QQ has a sequencing program that I will use for the gear doors when I install them.
