VERTIGO B-26 "Widow Maker" Official Build Thread AirShowRC.com
Coming very soon, the Build thread for the VERTIGO B-26.
This is a very new model, we are very proud of.
The prototype was shown and flown many times in many RC air shows
throughout the southwest with great interest.

Thanks, And stay tuned!

Yes it does fly and very well, many times.
I do have a flying video of the prototype that was intended to be the second half of the video you saw.
when I get some time I would like to finish it.
There are about 5 of the production models being built as of today at several locations.
We will have a flying video soon of the production model.

Unpacking the Kit Box B-26
Double Box weight is: 23 pounds
Box size is: 38X24X15
Tonight I opened the box and took a few pictures along the way.
Parts are individually double wrapped and secured with tape inside the box.
Everything seams well thought out with it's placement to maximize the use of the space inside the box.
It looks like it will take a while to unwrap.

I got this from the airshowrc website.
The stock wingspan is actually 78 inches.
I am going to make a couple 1 inch wing extenders to each side
to get the total 80 inches, to be giant legal.
