Martin 167 Maryland design and build.

Edit 9/6/08 I'm just editing the thread title to include the build off designation since this will be my entry.

It's time to start the next project or start thinking about it anywhere. I'm going to make my second swing at designing a plane on this and started on the plans tonight.

I'm going to make a Martin167 Maryland which was a US pre-WWII bomber. It is going to be 1/9th scale which gives it a wingspan of about 81.3 inches. Power is going to be something cheap such as 2 speed600's or cheap brushless. Around 600 watts should be good for scale like performance. Construction is going to be as much stick as I can with minimal sheeting to come out as light as possible. It will have retracts and probably flaps too. Wing area will be around 980in^2. I'm thinking of a final weight around 7 to 8 lbs. That will give a wingloading somewhere between 16-18 oz/ft^2
