The motor is a Himax 2812-0850, and the battery was a Apogee 3S 1500 mAh. I was 1/2 to 2/3 throttle most of the time, with bursts of full throttle here and there. Prop was a GWS 9x7.

This seems DAMN long to me. What kind of flight times are you getting out of your GWS warbirds, and what power system are you using?

Hi Jeremy, got the Corsair flying, eh? Glad to hear it! I'm flying a (slope kit, painted) GWS " Zero" with a Himax 2025-4200, 5.56:1 ratio, 9 x 6 APC "Slo" prop, CC 25A ESC and Gen 2 2100mAh 3S TP's. I flew it for about 6-8 minutes, land, fly another plane, fly the " Zero" again, another 6-8 minutes. Last flight 5 minutes, power was down a bit but never hit LV cut-off, battery is OK, not hot or "puffed up", I've used same battery since. Guess it's 20+ minutes, mostly 1/2 throttle, and a little 3/4 for verticals. LiPos RULE!

Hi Jeremy,
I typically fly my GWS Spitfire 20 t0 22 minutes on Polyquest 1500 and 1800 3s's with throttle management

When it won't loop from level flight I know it is time to land!

I am running a Razor 400, 4.4 gb and a 9/6 prop AUW 16 TO 18 OZ

Yes, it was. One more crash and she's getting retired. She's looking pretty tatty, hehehe.
