Description

The Mighty Mini Corsair is a plane you have to get your hands on.  The plane is one you have to see for yourself to believe and we couldn't be happier with it!  

This little Warbird park flyer is the perfect size to always keep with you in the back seat of your car and is small enough to fly at most medium sized parks. Though this little Corsair doesn't have the 2,000 HP Pratt & Whitney R-2800 radial engine that the original full-scale warbird had, it does use a 2204 sized brushless motor that is commonly found on mini race quads. This gives this little 4 channel plane enough power to climb vertically endlessly and pull off most basic aerobatic maneuvers with ease. 

This includes the airframe only (no electronics).

May need a redesign.

This was my 12th FT design built, 5th from a kit, and it was built using the recommended power pack from FT. First off, the build process is a breeze. No problems there. And of course, it looks awesome, because...CORSAIR! But like many others, I couldn't get it to fly very well. I set the CG at 1.5", because I'm still a pretty new pilot. I had to add 18 grams of lead in the cowl to get it balanced with a 2 cell. It felt really heavy, and flew the same. I wasn't able to climb at full throttle, and initiating a turn caused it to spin into the ground. I switched to a 3 cell and was able to take 4 grams off the front end, while moving the CG forward a quarter inch. With the extra juice, I could do a slow climb, but it was still really hard to control, and I spent more time walking to the crash sites than actually flying. One good this about it is that it is very durable! I angered it in over a dozen times, and only needed prop changes to try again. I may try to build a bigger version in the future to get a bigger power train in, but probably won't do this in kit or scratch again when there are so many other great FT designs that are easier to fly. This one is cool looking, but either needs a redesign, or a follow up video after figuring out why so many of us are having the same problems.
