Congrats Cogs on your choice of attractive livery.

What concerns previous posts, it's nice to have an idea about how much weight she can get off the ground, but has anybody an idea of wing surface figures so I can put that in relation and calculate the all important wing load in kg/cm2. It's the latter figure I prefer to predict aircraft behavior and choice of battery capacity.

Great workmanship Cocg, simply beautiful! "No lights Too much brain power.. I am lacking .. resistors, watts, leds.. !!" I used this kit from Aerodyne http://www.scaleflying.com/Scale-LED...anes_p_17.html

Worked great for me.

Cheers

It is not clear to me if motor, esc and retracts are included or not? Love the 747... great job in making this you rnext project. But please plan on having spare parts available. I currently own the 737 (not built yet) and worry about the lack of spares.... we all crash and need to be able to repair body parts - especially for the price for these planes.

For me it is clear:

"Kits included 4 pcs 70mm EDF, flap and retractable landing gear system but motor, ESC and battery".

As I understand this, included is:
-4x 70mm EDF
-Retracts

Not included is:
-Motors
-ESCs
-Batteries

I'm waiting for details as well.

Gear doors? With sequencer?
Wing reinforcement?
How are the flaps cut?
Winglet things?
