Go see the thread in "Foamies" on the Cargo, under "Multiplex B-17". It is a great flyer with the 400's stock. My son flew his for 12+ minutes at half throttle on an 8 cell 2000maH. It will ROG in 25 ft and do loops and rolls. Easy to land and control on the ground. He used a Castle Creations Pegasus control with the motors in parallel as recommended.

If you have trouble finding one for sale, try Stefan at Hollein in Germany. I bought 2 for approx. $145 ea, including shipping. Got it in 10 days.

My flying buddy, Paul Siegal, has TWO of them! His are done up like B-17s and look quite realistic in the air. They are powered with the stock motors, but Paul used Mini-Olympus gearboxes and three blade props (8x6?) for a more scale effect.

I have not flown them, but Paul says they have a better roll rate than a Twinstar, and will ROG from smooth surfaces with a lot of right rudder to counteract prop torque.

Here's a link to a couple of pictures and a short QuickTime video of one of Paul's Cargos:

Scroll down until you find the "B-17"s.

Nice web. site. I wish it was more in english.
I think I`m going to get the Multiplex Cargo now.

The B-17 by 'Dorme" looks like the way to go.
Thanks!!
