My two most favorite US World War II Aircraft were the Douglas SBD Dauntless And the F4U Corsair.. I look forward to Josh finally putting up the plans to the Corsair, but I'm sure it's gonna be a little while while they hope all the people who just can't wait, buy the speed build Kit.. I have to admit, this is my most favorite Flite Test Build so far! So kudos to John Overstreet and the guys at Flitetest... Boy wouldn't it be cool if they released the SBD Dauntless including it's working iconic five piece dive flap?
OMG I would die. I also LOVE the Dauntless, it has always been one of my favorite planes and I talk about it at length whenever the subject of warplanes comes up. My very first model airplane was a balsa former and stringer model of the Dauntless. I knew that plane backwards and forwards. It seems to me that with this Master technique, it would be possible to make the dive brakes. What a brilliant idea!
Not a lot done as far as assembly but did finish a lot of details.
i designed and printed control horns to accept a little larger gauge wire since we are using monster, metal geared servos. i also designed a new firewall to accept my bigger 28-36 motor. the rest of the time i spent getting the aileron servo's set and ready.
need to solder up leads on ESC but 3D printed firewall is perfect. the x-mount would not fit on the FT firewall so i used the inner mounts to bolt up. this eliminated x-mount. i am the using the longest, 3mm bolts that come with the F-pack motor to mount.
i think it should have plenty of get up and go... .
can't wait to see the paint job/decals Rasterize comes up with.
