    Help! I done goofed up...bought the wrong Mini Corsair and now I need help

    Hi Guys, First time building Flite Test Speed build kits. Also first time dabbling in RC flight. I bought a Mighty Mini Corsair and a power pack A, as I was led to believe this could be a good beginner, particularly with an aura 5 board in it. So that's what I went for. Only now that I have...

    Help! FT Mini Corsair/Foam board

    So I'm going to buy/build a mini Corsair, but I can't buy a power pack right now. Is it possible to build the model, paint it, etc, then open it up later and put all the electronics in?

    Mini Corsair mods - The Frankenstein

    Some “upscale” experimenting with leftover foamboard. 1. Full bottom airfoil (inspired by NerdNic) 2. Rounded cowling 3. Fully rounded bottom of the fuse I call it the Frankenstein haha If anyone has any ideas what else is doable to scale her up, let me know! (:

    FT mini Corsair or mini Guinea any good on windy days????

    After two months of flying, I do see that pilot skill has a great affect on any plane's ability to fly in the wind. However, my little stock engine HZ Champ can still become a kite in a strong breeze and my flying area is often windy even at dawn or sunset. I'd like to build the FT Mini Corsair...

    Scaling up plans (ft mini corsair)

    Hey, does anyone of you have any good experience with scaling up ft plans? I´m a big fan of the ft mini corsair, but I would like to experiment with scaling it up. The mini had some issues with tail weight, so I bet the problem would only scale with the size. Maybe shift the wing placement a...
