The Bristol Bomber RC Plane

November 18, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Thanks to seeing that wondering B25 today on FliteTest I have come back to building a WWII bomber.

Working from the concepts used for the AJR-48 the  Bristol Bomber RC Plane will have a 60″ wing span vs the previous 48″, the fuselage length is 30″ + 3″ nose section vs the previous 36″,  fuselage width is 3″ vs the previous 5″ and the  fuselage height is 5″ vs 4″ to aid in props clearing since I won’t be installing landing gear.

I’m very happy to making another attempt on this plane.

– Again using the FT Spitfire planes but with slight mods based off my own build and the B-25 designs.

– Tall and skinny. Just wide enough for the gopro.

– My putting the batteries upright on the sides I was able to keep the fuselage narrow.

– My Chief Weapons Officer was not impressed when I said we might not be able to drop 4 eggs.

– BTW the bomb pod is 80 grams with 6 servos and one receiver.
