Here are a pair of combat planes. They fly well on FT "B" and "C" power packs. 3S 1300-2200mah.

The Zero has a "C" pack radial in these photos and the Corsair has a generic motor equivalent to a "B" pack motor.

Flight video will come later. Need to be at the field when a camera man is available.

Here are the plans.

I updated the first post. Different plans version. This plans version is a little nicer and includes the power pod.

If you build these, I recommend building the power pod upside down. This will leave the open side to the bottom of the plane and get the air flowing through the fuselage. It will also make trimming the pod to fit the wing saddle a lot easier.

Enjoy.

Here is a video of the Combat Corsair and Combat Zero flying. The Zero has an FT "C" radial and the Corsair has a "B" pack near equivalent. So they have a wide power selection and flying envelopes to match. Both planes carried 3S 2200mah batteries. The Zero had a 9x6 prop and the Corsair an 8x4.

They are battle ready.

On another note, the C pack radial and ESC are a great fit for these planes. Had a 9x6 prop, and a 1300mah 4s battery. Awesome power and speed with 8-12 minutes flight time.

9x6 prop with a 4S. 1300mah works great, makes the plane pretty floaty at low speed and very fast at WOT. About 8 min flight times with 1300mah.

The same prop and a 2200mah battery is still just as fast, but a bit less floaty. Tracks well and makes for nice smooth lines. 12+ minute flight times are the real benefit to the 2200mah.
