at this place (in the video) 450m of runway should be enough, even if it is easy to land the 737...

skyfun from hobbycity (1 min 55 sec)

My setup is the setup recommended by Ming, and that comes with the kit (if you select that option.

Oh! I really don't know, but in the comments on Youtube the setup is mentioned.
KLM is nice! I have a KLM 777 hope that the 737 flies just as nice

That 777 looks way cool in the air!

I am finishing now a Baron 58 using the colors of the KLM flight academy. The setup includes also a real sound system to simulate engine startup/shutdown at a whopping 40W!

When done, the 737 will be next

Does anyone have a simple wiring diagram they could post showing the layout with two motors, two escs, two lipos and a BEC for the 737 all connected to the RX? I am in this case, assuming a BEC would be recommended as a fail safe for the RX.

Thanks.

Also, I have decided finally (with my airplane enroute from Ming), that I am going to build the RAAF E-737 "Wedgetail." As much of a pure airliner and winglet fan as I am, this bird has been at the "local" airport for the past 5 years and I just have to make it. I have been experimenting with the dual aft strakes on the existing foamie EDF I have and they are quite nice actually- very stable.

Working on my motor installation. I have given this some thought. In most of my planes I have had the possibility of changing motors and fans, and I would like to have it the same way on my 737 as well.

I will mount the EDF as you see in the pictures and glue the lower part of the engine pod at 3 points with epoxy. I will also use the self adhesive vinyl to cover the gap between the two pieces. This will allow me to change fan, housing and motor without too much hazzle.

That's a Great Idea Ben, I was thinking about that on another plane. But it still seems like a lot of work removing the EDF.
