"Got an inflight shot of my Corsair. It took the "k" in the contest at Pinkham Field today. Best flight was 108 seconds in the third round- but that wouldn't have been good enough to beat the up and coming kid- William Skelly who did 10 seconds more with a nice flying Jug. Note- both of these airplanes are flying on 15% motors. The last round though (yes, we flew 4 rounds) we launched in downer air, and I trounced William with a flight of 69 seconds. Better watch out for this kid..." - Sam Brauer[photos by Tom Nallen]
"Corsair with dummy and flying props. The Corsair landing gear is held on with magnets." - Matthew Payne
