Nice start on the B-17.
I'm just wiring my Paper/Depron Lancaster (68" Wingspan) , so I'll be interested how your B-17 turns out.

What a great project, John's B-17E.
Please keep us updated on your fine progress.
Also would you let us know what electronics you plan to use - motors, esc's and other goodies.
Thanks

Very nice Lancaster, Ivor. It will fly great.
Here is a video with my B24 which flies very good with all four motors:
RC B-24 aircraft - maiden - Man design (3 min 57 sec)
and also with two of them
B 24 2 (1 min 40 sec)


In both situation I use only one 3S -4000mA pack

Hi Teo,
Thanks for the thought that mine will fly well. It's getting heavier as I add bits and pieces onto the frame.
I'm busy hooking up servos right now and gluing in the blocks for the retracts.
I think I overdid the structure inside the depron/paper skins. What did you use for the spars on the B-24? and a second question , did you rely on the strength of the paper/depron skins in the fuselage or did you add balsa or ply structure?

Hi Teo,
Thanks for the link. I think my structure is too heavy compared to yours.
If I understand, you use sheet plywood for the spars with depron as a stiffener/ gluing area onto the depron/paper skin.
I think I will try to simplify my structure on the next model.
My Lancaster is going to be about 2 kilo ready to fly. I still have to add a few details like the canopies and turrets before it's ready to fly, but she stands on her own wheels now, and all the motors turn.
Maybe a taxi this week.

My B24 weight is 3.2kg and it seems to be light enough to perform basic aerobatics with only one 3S pack. To synchronise the motors I use finally one 4 x 30 A quad ESC. But the first flight was with 4 independent ESC .
