vulkinite,
I've always wanted a b-36. Thought about a sp280 version, but this 100" plus is lookin better. What do you figure the AUW of this monster will be? I imagine this will HAVE to have landing gear (read retracts). I tried to handlaunch a telemaster jr. once, with predictable results.

Parts going fast

Hi All,

I have 3 new parts orders being mailed out tomorrow and 4 sets of plans. This leaves 4 sets of parts left. If you've been thinking about this model, act fast, because I don't know if I'll have more part made.

-Jim

Well I have all the various pieces (THANKS Jim and Dennis), and have the wood ordered; now a few questions:

How about geared motors? Any reason why not to try this? Has any one done it?

How is radio reception with the Crome Ultracote? Antenna inside?

Can some one post pics or explain how they mounted the landing gear. We have an asphalt runway, the poor foam/1/16" balsa won't last long.

How to sheet the fuse? I plan on using Dave Brown Southern Sorgum as this is all I have used to sheet foam in the past. Just roll it on?

What guage wire to use inborad/outboard?

Would this tolerate the weight of a 14 or 16 cell pack if I were to go series/parallel. As there is no cooling, I was thinking of this to keep the current down.

I'm sure I'll have more ?s as the building starts.
THANKS in advance.

rcav8r2,
Geared motors are NOT needed and the reason is that geared motors will use a much larger prop, therefore striking the ground and doing much damage. With the 6x4 Graupner props on my '29, there is a some ground strike but the props are very flexable and do not pose no harm to the motors or nacelles because they are so small. But there isn't anything saying that you can't use a gear drive so go for it.

The radio reception is stellar on my '29 and it IS covered totally in chrome Ultracote and Flitemetal in some areas. I have a Hitec 555 Rx in it and it has worked flawlessly for me for three years.

Sorry. Can't help you on the landing gear issue for I have none on mine. Maybe Steve will jump in.

Sorgum will work fine. I used 3M Spray 77 in some areas on my plane. My '29 was an original Titanic Model along with Steve and Randy's planes. They were already presheeted but very poorly. Use what works for you.

The wire I used for the inboard and outboard motors were all 13 guage Astoflight or Deans( can't remember exactly the brand name since it's been awhile) silicone wire. The reason is because in the parallel setup, you will be drawing around 40 to 50 amps max. so use the thicker wire to handle the load.

Personally on the 14 to 16 cell packs. I would probably not even consider it. This model like to fly light. And added weight would just hinder it's performance. Plus the cavity in the center of the fuse is pretty narrow.

Here are some constrcution pics of my '29. If you want to see more, search for my thread in the scale forums "And Another Titanic B-29" for more info.

Perry; thanks for the feedback. I'll stick with what is proven power wise. No use re-inventing the wheel.
Also glad to hear reception is no issue. I have a 555.

Another ?: Are the Shotkey Diodes necessary on the motors? I've used them on 05 cans, but not the speed 400s.

Hopefull Steve will chime in on the gear.

THANKS again
