Actually the Mossie did carry a cannon.....

RAF Coastal Command version, preceeding the FB.Mk VI. It was armed with the four 0.303 inch (7,7 mm) nose mounted guns, and one adopted 6-pounder anti tank cannon (57 mm) in stead of the four 20 mm cannons. The 6-pounder had 25 rounds, and could fire it's entire magazine in 20 seconds (more than 1 round per second). This was done for anti-shipping and anti-submarine purposes, but also for attacking shore installations. It proved very successfull, and this version was nicknamed "TseTse". It was powered by 2 Rolls Royce Merlin 25's optimized for low level. It's dimension were equal to the FB.Mk IV, but empty and max weights were 14,598 lb and 23,274 lb (6622 and 10557 kg) respectively.
Number built: 27

The receiver has two seperate ESC's. They are "linked" if you will so when you get to low voltage cutoff, both motors stop at the same time so you do not have an engine out situation.

Hope that helps.

Have to check on the cannon but wouldn't be surprised if it carried that as well!

cheers

Thanks for the info.

That's scary. Since they only did it for less than a year, I'd hate to see what kind of shape those planes were in when the experiment was over.

I wonder how many they pulled the tail off on landing.

Thanks Matt.

Do you know if the motors are the equivalent of the Sukhoi XP or the original Sukhoi for Power?

UNGN, the motors are P-51 motors.

Here is a photo of the AR6400T receiver. The Receiver shouid be live on HH.com today or tomorrow.

Thanks for the Link.

My friend Roland Bushner, flew Mosquitos on un armed weather Recon sorties with the 653rd Bomb Squadron, even over flying Berlin @ 30,000 ft in early 1945.



I'm going to put a glass nose on mine and paint it like this one. I think he'll get a kick out of it.

I may have to get one of these with its Canadian connections and get a good RCAF scheme.
