Just an amazing display of formation flying between Joe's Carbon T-28 Trojan 78-inch wing span and my Hangar9 F4U-1D 50-size Corsair Electric!

Two large RC Electric models side by side!

We even looped on my mark of Three, Two, one and it was spectacular and provided a good show for those there.

Some ground pictures of my Hangar9 Corsair and my Park Zone F4U Corsair (Original Version) side -by-side.

Hello good people!

One year ago my beloved Hangar9 F4U-1D Corsair 50 size hit the tree on the North side of the field where most of the trees are located. Fortunately the model landed after spinning for several rotations on its mains without any further damage except the right 1/4 end wing section.

Got too close on approach! This is a super strong model. The right tip wing section got ripped clean off. I have finally repaired it nice and slowly. Ribs that are cracked first and glued in re-enforcement ribs (custom cut from scratch) and repaired (reconstructed) the twin spars etc...etc... yes, sheeting was replaced last.

If I would have taken off the crushed / cracked balsa sheeting first, I would have never would been able to repair as the remaining Ribs were cracked and fragile. Had to maintain the stock / remaining Ribs in order to reconstruct this Right wing section.

Another TIP "is" make sure you get whatever Rib section to allow for future Sheeting to be able to sit flush with the remaining undamaged sheeting!

I used Gorilla Wood Glue (White) and Elmer's Wood Filler (Natural) for filling small holes and slight imperfections.

That is a difficult repair to make, but it looks like you have it in hand. I am sure I don't need to remind you but it will now be right wing heavy, but you probably can take care of it with trim or counter weight on the other side. Just the nature of repairs.

With the exception of some nicks on the edge of Right Wing Aileron and other small imperfections, I truly believe that this is way better than what I anticipated. She looks great and at least I will still have the brand new in-the-box ARF for that complete disaster crash and not a minor clean break of the right wing tip section.

These pictures don't do justice on how nice and shiny she looks and all sectional rib covering are tight and the sheeting covering came out way better than I had thought considering minor depth imperfections on where the sheeting met at the breakage points.

Now,again the covering came out better than I expected considering all the work that was done!
