    I just sent you some pics to your email id. No flaps for the racers. The servo install were of course all 400in oz JR servos. 1 for each elevator half and 1 for rudder. The wing had 2 servos per aileron. Worked out well. If you were to do flaps may help to slow down for landing. It gobbles up a lot of runway so that 600 to 800 ft may be iffy. Do not want to slow this baby down. My first Corsair was a stock 290 on gas. To take off it was at idle with full right rudder, full right aileron and about half up elevator. If you were to hammer it, it would torque over on its back. Been there done that. Once in the air slowly increase throttle and oh yeah retract gear asap. Flies well, really holds a good line. Landings are pretty soft, just hold some speed. The wing carries her pretty good. Most of all short linkages all the time. There is a hatch at the underside of the tail. That's where your servos go for elevator and rudder/tailwheel. All Titanium linkages with at least 4-40 ball type links that are fastened to the control horns via 4-40 hardware.

    Yes that is a DAVE BRIDI or Hound Dog Racing back in the day. Plane from his molds. Robart retracts fit. It is about 88" span. They fly great and are fast with a lot of power. Easy to land even at 45 to 55 lbs.

    I believe that is from the DAVE BRIDI molds. I have built 2 of these guys. The one I have now is still to be tested. It has an 290cc twin in it and will be a serious racer some day. 220 plus. It weighs about 48lbs with no fuel.
