Guillows Corsair....what to expect Empty Guillows Corsair....what to expect

Post  FLEET AIR ARM on Sat Jun 04, 2016 11:41 am

Im in the process of completing the Guillows giant Corsair, equipped with an .049 and set up for rc with aileron/ elevator controls and 6x4 3 blade prop from master airscrew.

Anyone out there mess around with these kits like this? Anything to watch out for and expect? I know.. don't roll a plane with a 3 blade prop.

I don't think im going to mount that prop backwards, will have sufficient down thrust and right deflection to offset torque.

I have zeroed out the incidence and added washout. Just hoping to accomplish some quick sport flights with it.

any input, thanx

Cheers

What type of .049? Reed, medallion, Tee Dee? That sounds like a little to much prop but I know nothing of Rc. Sounds like a cool project, would love to see photos.

Probably just going to use a teedee, not looking for long duration flights. Im going to post some pics as soon as I can. im really excited about it. It builds well with micro servos in the wings. Substituted basswood stringers throughout. Tissue and supercoat dope finish with humbrol enamel overcoat for scale, overcoated with top flite clear flat for fuelproofing, ive had a lot of success with this type finish with these guillows planes in past, its light and pretty durable.

Maybe I should mount that prop backwards. cant decide yet for sure

WELCOME BACK !! Hell I am excited just hearing about it ...... don't know why you would want to mount the prop backwards for R/C though?? A TD .049 I would go with less pitch they like to turn up and will perform better with out the load , for a 2 blade a 6x3P for sport should work good. If you just have to have the 3 bld. for the looks I do understand. Eric Very Happy

I'm with Eric on this . Don't know why you would want to turn the prop around. Good to see another Guillows fan on here.Can't wait to see some pics.

This will be quite a build

I saw these too videos on Youtube - albeit employing the dark side.

I understand the 6x3 use for a scale application. All it has to do is get it in the air. No 6" prop in the world except an APC 6x2 will get the TD up into the SPI range, but APC looks about as scale as a turd. I also know nothing of the thrust-needs of an RC plane, or RC scale flight capabilities.

I do admire these stick and tissue builds. Good luck... sounds like we're giving you a lot of nothing for information.

Yes, now I get forgetting that idea of mounting that prop backwards to reduce thrust.. no need...that's that "free flight" mentality still kicking in.

Ive been reading the "not wired for rc " thread, and for this being a fighter, its going to be very responsive to the ailerons I think.


I cant decide whether to hand launch or ROG it. I guess ROG would be "safer' if that's possible. As soon as I figure out how to post pics here, ill get some on.

Hand launch over tall grass is the safest. Tall grass will entangle and stop a motor with relative gentleness, and also cushion the air frame from the ground.

Mowed grass on soft damp earth is probably around 3rd or 4th with grass needing a mow ahead of it.
