FMS 1400mm Corsair Tailwheel Replacement

Posted by Motion RC on |

  • Category: Build Guides
  • The tail wheel assembly on the FMS 1400mm Corsair is removable by removing the four screws from the outside of the fuselage, then gently prying the entire assembly straight out of the fuselage. It is not easy, but it can be done. You'll also need to loosen the grub screw holding the rudder and steering wheel's control rods to the rudder servo. The armature is connected to the wheel internally and that often holds the assembly in despite pilots pulling on the assembly. For reference, look at the picture of the complete tail assembly in the Corsair's product page, in...

    Reversing Cowl Flaps on an FMS 1400mm T-28 or the Oil Cooler Door on an FMS 1700mm Corsair

  • Category: Build Guides
  • I have a better solution to the flap servo problem on the 1400mm T-28 (see pictures below).  The front cowl spoilers use 1 forward and 1 reverse servo. When the wing flaps and cowl spoilers do not operate in tandem, we can simply swap the right and left servos in the cowl. 1) Remove the door for each spoiler on the front of the cowl (see first picture). 2) Remove the single screw which holds the servo in the cowl area. (make sure you unplug the wires from the 4 way servo harness). 3) Simply swap the two servos, reinstall...
