The top cowl is removed for engine starting and is then secured by a quick release fastener.  Mr Holder stated 'Flight performance of the model and engine is very good, with half throttle required to give a scale flight.  The large propeller coupled with the generous flaps give a controlled landing.  The reliable idle performance of the engine is such that the aircraft can be taxied back to the runway exit for shutdown' corsair1.jpg (24440 bytes)
