  • Thank you Hugh.

    I had Callie create the gauges (Graphics) on a clear background from the set that she currently makes, specifically for doing this. I built a back plate and sides from balsa for the dashboard. The sides are 1/4 inch between the dashboard and the backing plate. I have 3 hole drilled into the balsa for the LEDs. I also filled the in between space with a "poly fill" like is used when making stuffed animals. By putting the "poly fill" in between the LEDs and and the dashboard it reduces and eliminates the "hot spots" that the LEDs normally produce. The "poly fill" acts like a defuser to spread the light over a broader area. Since the LEDs don't get hot there is no fear of burning. I soldered the LEDs to the wiring and put connectors on the ends that fix right into the connectors on the blue Motion RC Blue colored E1712 controller, which the Corsair comes with.

      Very ingenious. I assumed you used Callie's gauges, as did I on my Corsair cockpit, but having her print them on a clear background was the step I would have never thought of, yet seems so simple. Thanks for "clearing" that up and illuminating my curiosity, pun intended!

The entire cockpit is from the Motion RC 3D printer files that are available on the Flightline Corsair page. The dashboard also features the gun site and reflective glass. The dashboard is lighted up by 3, 5mm white LEDs. I had started with the Red LEDs, however they were not bright enough to light everything up and would have required a total of 5 LEDs. The pilot is the original one that came with the plane, just weathered a little.
        Beautifully done!

              Looks great, but is that plane going over 700mph? That's asking for a mid-air disintegration.

                  • My Freewing Yak 130 70mm with fms pro 70mm in-runner. Freewing did not do an in-runner version when I bought the model as an arf plus and I have recently upgraded my fms in-runner to the 30 60 1900kv version.

                              Thanks, great flying airplane. It is grounded for the time being due to a strange flap deployment problem on the right wing, but new parts are coming from Motion that will hopefully fix the issue. A solid choice for a WWII warbird for anyone loving the bent wing bird!

                                        • I came up with a new innovation in RC - a transmitter grip that gives you the advantages of both pinch and thumb style at the same time:
