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.

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.

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

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

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 weighthttp://i1143.photobucket.com/albums/n636/widdog/Mobile%20Uploads/20160501_102508.jpg.

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.

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.

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 Corsairhttp://i1143.photobucket.com/albums/n636/widdog/Mobile%20Uploads/20160712_124143.jpg.

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.
