Was the same as B-29 except for the Allison V-3420 engines, only one was build as an experiment.

I had not seen the B-10... very nice and I especially love the Peashooter color scheme, a favorite of mine!

During the past year I have given the B-29 some diehedral...it was like teaching it manners. I don't like the look as well but it sure flys fantastic now and that makes up for the neg in the looks dept..it is still one that not everyone has when you show up....

I have, and dearly love, my Roadkill B-17 too.......... not an ar6400 plane but close and great fun to fly. It is like the grand dad leading into this fabulous future, so it deserves mention. Randy

Now that is very nice! Refreshing to see stick and tissue builds, plus a home built design to boot! Great job. Have you flown it? If not please report how she did!

Its just some left over tissue from a 500 series Guillows kit (I'm pretty sure its just the cheap stuff you can find at any Target). I used 50/50 white glue and water to attach it to the frame, and 1 coat of 50/50 Sig Supercoat to combat morning humidity.

I got a chance to fly for a few seconds before work today. She was a bit anemic and had a pretty pronounced pendulum effect. I'm going to mount an ar6400 and add a mustang motor. That should take care of the power.

As far as the pendulum problem, I'll try mounting the battery higher up in the fuselage. If that does not cut it, I'll shorten the landing gear and use lighter wheels. I'm not too familiar with this problem, if there is some easy fix, I would appreciate being enlightened.

twin hybrid.

i built 'the twins', scaled down to 35%. it crashed, but i save all of my crashes on my celing.
so i built a wing, 24 inch ws and mounted it to the dead fuse. this is the result. and yes, i have one alieron on a AS2000 and the other on a HK 2.2g servo. flew last night, badly. but hopefully will get to fly again to day.
twin UMp51 motors, GWS4040, AR6400T
