SBD Dauntless Dive Bombing Runs


The first five minutes is the cool part (last five is some slo mo to help me sort out a few remaining trim issues).

This was a blast to build and not something you see everyday:

The airframe is an ESM ARF but highly modified with a new paint job, scale cockpit and gun package, airworthy dive brake system, and my own bomb release design.

The ARF kit is going to get even more "customized" as you can see the poor covering they used is wrinkling in the pictures and it won't stay down. So a new covering job will happen.

Power plant is a Monster 1.60 with 9s 5000mAh pack turning an 18x12 MAS two blade (soon to be 16x10 three blade and eventually a scale Vario prop).

Oh wow i didnt realize it was so big. You should set up some dumby tanks like a panzer or a tiger in the same scale and do some target practice
