Any idea of what the total amp draw would be (how it would affect it, I mean,) if the two outboard motors were wired together in series, the two inboard motors wired together in series, and then those two circuts wired together in parallel?

I just ordered 4 Speed400/7,2V with the Graupner prop adapters, I'll have to try what props are the best when using 3S Lipo packs.

BTW, where can I buy this chrome Ultrakote covering?? -They don't sell it here in the Netherlands

I normally don't like the film look but this stuff looks great.

Are the foam and vacuum formed parts still available? If they are, what is the price list.

Plastic Parts

Yup, Plenty of parts in stock. US$35 shipped, Extra Noses are US$10. My Foam cutter has gone AWOL, so I'm referring people to FlyingFoam.com or any of the other foam cutters out there.

B-29 Air Warrior Upgrade

I have just finished converting the B29 Air Warrior to a very flyable scale model for a purchase price of $39 on the internet. Basically the modifications are these: reduce the dihederal with a wing brace, replace the control sytstem with a standard system and 3 servos, relocate the landing gear, and replace the battery with a lipo and relocate it to the forward fuselage. Install nosewheel stearing. It is now fully capable for all normal ground and flight maneuvers. Check my posts in Article Discussio for details.

Hi Bill,

No problem. Here is shot of the nose. It is covered with aluminum duct tape from the local home improvement store.

B=29 Plans still available

Hi All,

With the appearent demise of RCM Magazine, I will once again be able to supply plans along with the vacuum formed parts for the B-29. Also, I have 3 sets of foam parts for the B-29, which can save you a lot of work. Please contact me if you are interested.

that doesn't sound good. I called them a week ago and they told me that they were retooling their line or something like that and that it was taking a few months... I hope it comes back

Rcm

I called them to talk about an new construction article (Hughes H-1), and the lady told me that Jim Pearson (technical editor) had retired, and that they were getting ready to sell the magazine. I asked if they were accepting any new stuff, and she said not at this time. There is nothing on the their website, there is no new issues in the LHS, and the guy at the LHS said they were gone.

So, I figured while they are reorganizing, it should be okay to pick up the slack and keep the B-29 production rolling.

Sammy - you didnt mention which kit. If its the one I modified, it wouldent be practical and to no advantage at all to put little .o2 engines on it even if you could find them. See all my posts on the B-29, it is a very successful flyer and it has landing gear.

Glow conversion?

Hi Sammy,

There are several reasons why you don't see a lot of multi-engine planes out there, but there over 30 of these electric B-29's out there. I know of at least 2 people who have outfitted this model with retracts, so it can be done. I would encourage you to try an electric version.

Some reasons why you shouldn't try glow:

1.) Trying to start four .020 before the first one runs out of gas.
2.) You had better make sure you guess right when the first engine quits and get the correct rudder correction in.
3.) Do you know how annoying four .020's would be? It would probably be four times as annoying as one .020!

I hope you come to your senses.

-Jim

P.S. This post is all in fun, so don't take it too seriously, except the part about staying with electric power.
