I just found out that the Corsair has a version of the same engine as the P-47D, the R-2800 Double Wasp. That's great since it could help in getting the Corsair out of the hangar and into the air...hopefully.

In what way exactly ? Corsair is developed not by ED .

Another thing that engine used in corsair is not exactly the same as in P-47, corsair don't have turbo, it uses 2 stage 2 speed superchargers.

just my opinion.

i would think ED, though not the creator of the Corsair, would provide input on the engine. just for the simple reason there will be those that compare the P-47 and Corsair for differences not effected by the turbo/superchargers. imagine having to argue the main bearing in one behaving differently in a dive without damage? so i wouldn't think they'd be starting at 0. they'd probly have to start a forum just for the R-2800.
