McDonnell Douglas MD-80 Super-80 & DC-9 EDF Foamie






















The Next DemonDriver RC Airliner Video build is. . . . . . (14 min 55 sec)



Well here we go again! Seven. . Yes seven MD-80's to be built during the next 3-6 months! this will be my most challenging build to date!
the Frontier and SAS MD-80's will be sold on bay when completed.

I want to give a shout ot to Silenthunter, Ben-E, Mike Neff, Chochmah, Keenan smith and all other Builders who have tackled this Thin woman of an airliner!

I have a confession to make the first airliner build I was gonna start was supposed to be a MD-80 Frontier airliners but I discovered Mike Neff-AKA Neffwaffe built one a year earlier so instead I built the North central DC-9-51. Now the time has come! When I saw SilentHunter's MD-80 thread My Jaw dropped off! what a builder Rick is! what a master model maker.

You guys have inspired me to do my best! I get as much pleasure wachting & learning from you guys as I do building.

I will start actual construction of the MD-80's in 14-20 Days. . . .I'm waiting for more depron & carbon fiber to arrive, in the mean-time I will finailize the hand drawn plans and work on the thrust reversers & leading edge slats.

Buying a small plastic model will always be a BIG Help in building any RC aircraft!

You put me to shame... The fact that you unmeritedly put me into this list of names really made my day

I wish you the very best with this newest installment of the DaemonDriver T-Tail Series. And If I may be so insolently to advice you on something: Make it light. My MD80 is 2.45 meters long and weights 1.7Kg. that's seems to be already quite the upper limit weightwise to make those beautiful scale NeffWaffe landings. So, KEEP IT LIGHTWEIGHT

cheers chochmah
