Title: Supreme Model's Corsair Peanut Scale
Post by: Widdog on September 05, 2015, 03:03:43 PM
I won this kit from Ebay. When it arrives I will scan the instructions and post them to the plans Gallery. I have built the Supreme FW 190. https://youtu.be/HU0Anhid4gA. I think I would have had a good flight the last one if I went with less nose weight and more down thrust.

While I'm waiting for the Corsair kit to arrive in the mail. I decided to post about my current build. It's a Guillow's Cessna 150 reduced from 24" ws to 17" ws. I did build this model before. https://youtu.be/-YxHGtp470E.

Making progress on my current build. Hopefully I'll be able to start the Corsair soon.

I have made some more progress with the Cessna. It seems like it may make a nice model. I think that unfortunately it will turn out kind of heavy. Even if it does turn out heavy I will still try to fly it.

The Guillow's method requires that the trust button not be glued into place. I am making a removable nose block for this model. I will glue my thrust bearing into   place.

Finished my current project. Will start the Corsair soon.

Thanks H. Bob. I decided to post the trim video. Maybe I can drum up some help to improve my trim flights. my max winds where 300 hand cranked.

Hi Widdog. It looks like your glide with no power is good, but you are getting power stalls. Perhaps more down thrust would help?

A second for the downthrust....

Thanks much I will sure give it a try.

Well not the best video. I think it does show the modified reduced to 17 inch ws Guillow's model flying.

I pulled up this old thread because I have an interesting update. AerowreksDPCmodels.com is letting me be a Test Pilot for their reproduction of the Supreme Model's Peanut Corsair. They sent me a pre production kit to build. Wow is it ever a nice kit. The laser cut parts are a thing of beauty.(http://i1143.photobucket.com/albums/n636/widdog/20160428_140636.jpg) (http://s1143.photobucket.com/user/widdog/media/20160428_140636.jpg.html)

I understand that the plans for this kit are in the Plans Gallery. I also understand how nice it is to have laser cut parts especially for a Peanut build. The wood that this kit came with is perfect for small laser cut parts. I plan to fly this kit electrical FF so I am really not concerned with wood weight(http://i1143.photobucket.com/albums/n636/widdog/Mobile%20Uploads/20160501_102508.jpg) (http://s1143.photobucket.com/user/widdog/media/Mobile%20Uploads/20160501_102508.jpg.html).

Coolio!  Dave's peanuts are great.  I still fly my Dr1 and it's very light even after rekitting itself.   This is gonna be great.

Hey Wid,
could you re-scan the printwood from the kit for the Corsair and upload it?  Your scanner cropped about 1/4" (or more) from the bottom.

Post by: Widdog on July 13, 2016, 12:37:46 PM
Hi Pit,

I have the complete original kit. The print wood originally was printed like that on my kit. Also in my humble opinion the parts are kind of small to be hand cutting.

Good news is that AerowreksDPCmodels.com redid the parts and laser cuts them in their reproduction Kit. Also they added a clear plastic canopy. The best part is that they put my name on the instruction sheet.(Test Pilot).  Oh BTW the parts fit perfectly they did a miraculous job redoing them. 
They told me the original parts sheet was way out.


Title: Re: Supreme Model's Corsair Peanut Scale
Post by: Widdog on July 13, 2016, 06:40:55 PM
The way I got to be AerowreksDPCmodels.com Test Pilot... well basically I lucked out. I had been taking Guillow's 900 series kits and reduced their size to Peanut sized models. I had written to Guillow's about the Peanut sized models and how well they flew. Guillow's replied they had no interest in Peanuts. I tried other companies but got no replies. AerowreksDPCmodels.com was the only company to reply.

I told AerowreksDPCmodels.com about Nick's website. Microflierradio.com. Nick has the Electric Free Flight Timers, Motors/props and Batteries. I am using one of my Guillow's 900 series Peanut as a test plane. The prototype plane has a AUW of 20 grams. Here is video with an underpowered Hobby King motor. BTW the timer has a throtle control as well as timer shut off. The video is with Max throttle.   https://youtu.be/RZ3ii-x_dRM

My next test will be with a 10 gram of thrust motor.

That and having the original kit is how I got to be Test Pilot.

I have the fuselage rough framed. One thing I over looked on the experimental prototype was a removable nose block. I will make one for the Corsair(http://i1143.photobucket.com/albums/n636/widdog/Mobile%20Uploads/20160712_124143.jpg) (http://s1143.photobucket.com/user/widdog/media/Mobile%20Uploads/20160712_124143.jpg.html).

I have started covering the Corsair wings. I thought it might be a difficult wing to cover. However, it is starting to look like the best covering job I ever done.

I am having problems with the throttle control on my Timer. However, I can't blame that on the Corsair Kit. IMHO. The kit did better than expected. I think when I get the underpowered issue straightened out. This kit will be an excellent flyer. It is a very solid model and crash resistant

Flight looks pretty good, Keith.  A tab bit underpowered as it
appears but looks nice and stable in your video. Keep up the
great work and hope you get your timer working properly.

Thanks Skyraider,

When electric gear works it's the greatest. When it doesn't it's the worst. One bad component can take out one or all the other components.

Anyway Nick from microflierradio.com is going to check out all my gear and figure out what's happening. I think the motor is knocking out my Timers.

I still like EFF and am convinced if they had tiny Lipo batteries back in the day EFF would be even more popular today.

I just finished emailing AerowreksDPCmodels.com congratulating them on doing such a super job with the Peanut Corsair kit. I had great fun building the Corsair. I could not find anything that would improve this kit. I made this kit for EFF. I would like to purchase another kit and make it rubber power. BTW the kit had the parts to make it rubber power. I don't remember if my kit came with a prop. I don't think it's been determined what size prop it would take for rubber power.


Title: Re: Supreme Model's Corsair Peanut Scale
Post by: Widdog on July 18, 2016, 12:12:41 PM
More good news from AerowreksDPCmodels.com. They said soon, maybe as short as a few days I can Purchase a Peanut Hawker Typhoon. A reproduction of the Supreme Model's kit.

I don't know how AerowreksDPCmodels.com is going to do this. Remember I have the original kits and posted the plans in the photo gallery. That was how I got involved in the Corsair project. They wanted me to build the kit and see if I had any problems. I didn't. 

Anyway what I do know is the parts have been corrected. They will be laser cut. The kit will be made by AerowreksDPCmodels.com so you know it will be good.



Title: Re: Supreme Model's Corsair Peanut Scale
Post by: Widdog on July 19, 2016, 12:10:56 AM
I am surprised I didn't get any replies to my post about the Peanut Hawker Typhoon. The plans are in the Plans Gallery. The print wood is there as well. I even built one from scratch. It didn't turn out well and it didn't fly so well.
https://youtu.be/IBMLII_GzbI

Now why am I so excited about the AerowreksDPCmodels.com Peanut Hawker Typhoon?
Well first of all the parts are corrected so they fit together properly. This makes a huge difference. The parts are laser cut. This time I will make the model electric free flight. The good thing about this hobby is its always fun

Skyraider, are Aerowerkes moving into repro's of WW2 kit subjects as well as your own existing excellent WW1 range? Very exciting news if so, for those of us always looking to extend our range of potential Kit Scale subjects even more.

Yes, I've been doing this for some time now starting with the Comets. Keith's peanut project caught my fancy and wanted
to help him out. Its been a blast ever since. I'm looking into reviving some of the old Joe OTT designs. Mainly the B-17 and B-25
have caught my eye to begin with but OTT has a whole range of subjects to choose from. For me, the plans are great by themselves.
But to have an updated kit go along with it is something else. Just my way of preserving the past with proven designs.

Keith,
     Nice Video.  I'm really amazed the Corsair flies that well. Just wait until the Typhoon arrives. There'll be some fun then!

The Corsair is an excellent Laser Cut Peanut kit. All the kits I have purchased from AerowreksDPCmodels.com have been excellent kits.

Reproduction Laser Cut Peanut Kits. This is Yuge. They are excellent too. I can hardly believe that Monday I will be starting the Hawker Typhoon!

This is the video that had gotten me interested in Electric Free Flight.  https://youtu.be/YRcklHQKaTk 
Now all one has  to do is call microflierradio.com. To get the Timer, Motor/prop and battery.

These ole kits take to EFF great.

I think the Horizon Hobby Champ motor with gear box is the right motor for these Peanuts. Even though the model is not trimmed in, the motor has plenty of power.

Now that I am confident on what electric gear to use on Peanut models. I am going to start building my AerowreksDPCmodels.com Hawker Typhoon Peanut Model.

Even though I'm just learning EFF. I am having a lot of fun.
Here is video of my C130 EFF hitting a tree.

Today was a very calm windless day. I decided to set my EFF timer to allow more time. The Aerowrekes Corsair flew wonderfully. I'm not sure i know what pattern to fly with EFF. I think the model should fly high an than land close to where it took off from. The photography is terrible but i believe it does verify that this kit is an excellent flyer.
