Retracts will be considered and thought out at a later date

BTW the budget for this project is £350

my flying buddies are going to do the the floor and cut out all the formers
and ill work on the 77 till its a complete airframe then ill join the an-225 bandwagon whilst the 777 fans batts and extra receiver are on there way from HK and during that time we'll finish the fuse and start the wings then when they arrive ill jump back on the 777 and finish that then whilst I'm waiting for some good weather ill continue work on the An-225 How does that sound ?? and BTW did i mention were building 2 ??

Dude - a 12' wingspan will need serious servos - Dag is using 50g metal gear servos for flaps etc... Those 12g servos will fry with that much load on them.

Hi Keenan,
That is quite a project you want to swing there. That will be forever in my lifetime. Are you sure. Tell us you are kidding. It can be done. But, all the time involved.. Would you rather be flying? Good luck on it. The components are real nice.

I'll agree that 12g servos are too small (unless you use like 6 per surface ) but I wouldn't compare this to that massive B-36, it's less than half the size (not that necessarily you are, but it kind of sounds like it.)

Have you looked into RC car servos? It seems like they're abit slower, but rated for much higher loads for the weight. You might want to look into something like a ~40g servo per surface.

Gonna take some serious engineering. Design before you build....Dag spent years doing CAD drawings and making sure everything would work perfectly before building the b-36....take some time to make it all work in advance.
Edit...phones autocorrect :/
