WTB Plans for a 38" Dumas Corsair
« on: November 23, 2022, 03:34:19 PM »
Anyone have a set of plans for a Dumas Corsair?  It's a 38" undercambered profile that can be used for carrier, if I recall.

I'm looking to purchase a set, or a photocopy, or even a scan.  If you have a set, please let me know what it would take to make this happen.

thanks,

Peter

There are two kits, the A7 Corsair and the F8 Crusader. Both are I-Beam construction. The Corsair was marketed as a 2 line sport model. It had a flat (no dihedral) wing and a conventional stab and elevator. The Crusader was marketed as a carrier model with a J-Roberts 3 line system. It had anhedral in the wing, and a full flying stabilator with dihedral. I did a build of the Crusader in the carrier section in 2011. It's worth a look.

Neither kit had full size plans, and the wing isn't built over the plans anyway. I think the fuselage side view is shown 1/2 scale, so with a bit of determination and a little fudging, you could probably recreate a decent approximation. I just looked, but I don't have the plans anymore.

I've built three Crusaders. My first one was my very first carrier plane, built in 1986. The one in the build log was a 25th anniversary tribute to the first one, and somewhere in between, I built one as a 2 line sport model. I like the unique appearance, and they were fun to fly. Good luck with yours.

 I remember Bill's Crusader build, exceptionally well done and one of my all time favorites on the forum. Enough so that I purchased a NIB kit on Ebay shortly after seeing it. That kit still sits on my shelf, waiting...

That is a beauty, Mr. Bischoff!  Gotta love Navy aircraft colors too!

I have a scan of the Corsair plan.  PM your mailing address, Peter ...

It is the Corsair, for sure.  And thanks for clearing up the "carrier" confusion.

  I was confused about the "under cambered" wing description. Like Bill mentions, it's a beamer. I don't know if I have a kit or not but will look.
  HAPPY THANKS GIVING!

I have one that has been started. Got side tracked during a move. The leading edge is a round dowel, symetrical airfoil I beam wing.

Dan,

Sorry the "under cambered" and "carrier" comments were confused.  The ribs didn't look like anything I'd actually built, so I thought it was an under camber.

thanks,

Peter

Here's a picture of the Crusader kit. If I build another carrier plane, this is likely first in line....

I have a friend who had a penchant for showing up the night before the contest and burning an all nighter to get his models ready. He showed up one year with an almost ready Crusader and got it together for the contest. The motor ran strong and all the bells and whistles worked, so we fired it up and launched it at which point the flaps released and it performed an abrupt roll. Very exciting and his well tuned combat reflexes ensured the model recovered and it lasted several years, with some success.
