unrauv,

We're glad to have you contributing to RCGroups. Any one of your planes is sweet; the whole collection is amazing.

Suggestion: Start a blog in RCG which points to your website. Then put a reference to your blog/website/plans in the first post of each plane.

Thanks for sharing.

Scott

Very nice.

The B18 Bolo version was a bit boxier (based on the DC2 I believe) and might lend itself well to this build.

I tend to use higher Kv's and small props on twins. Plus differential throttle linked to rudder helps even things out when needed.

Some of my models are not for beginners, they can be complicated. I just don't have time to do an instruction manual with my work schedule. But I will do my best with answering questions. I have started a build thread for my DH-88. I will have to start my blog this weekend.

Hey if you want to use a different motor, just give me the dimensions from the front of the nacelle to the firewall. I could post addendums for different motor sizes.

Sorry I never took video of it flying. I had some issues with unmatched motors and ESC's. I was going to do a rebuild but never go around to it. I may build my He-111 instead. I also have a Me-210 in the works. Just too many models for one person to build!!

Yes, you are a prolific plan creater! I was thinking the same thing re. DC-3 and the HE-11 for a little down the road. Both have classic profiles in my mind. One of my first builds was Gene Bond's C-47. Even though it was profile it had a great presence in the air and that's something I'd like to have again.

I also think I use the wrong propellers. Should have gone with Master Airscew 8 x 6 triples.
