b-29 - rudder control on a 2-channel?


Hi,

I was wondering if I could change a differential thrust plane to one with rudder control.

Basically, the plane would be controlled by thrust and rudder.

I would like to retain original parts and cheap 2-channel radio and use 1 servo. Is this possible if I solder a few things?

If you have one of the B-29s for sale on Ebay, they turn pretty good on just thrust differential.
I don't know if you could convert the thrust differential "channel" to operate an actuater or coil.
You don't want to get acused of flooding, but you might pose the same question in the Indoor Model forum. Some lightweight planes use pretty novel methods for control.

i don't know how the electronics are on that plane, but with only differential thrust you have no servo's installed. you may be able to install one into the electronics, but once again i dont know if they will accept a servo.

im going to go ahead and assume no. by the time you got it flying, you would have all new electronics.

Hello, I have the same plane waiting to be converted as well. I don't think you can do the conversion as you described easily. However I do have a set of one-channel rudder only receiver/esc combo with transmitter. I think you can combine the parts to do rudder control easier. If you are interested I can send them to you, you just pay the shipping. PM me if you are interested.
