flying B-17 formation with Laine


Got to do some flying with Laine (lmopar69) recently. I got him to fly "formation" b-17's with us. Laine was being laine hence the inverted part and the sneak attacks. It was a lot of fun, and the only thing that sucked was we can't do this more often. We are hoping to have 10 in the air at the next event we go to.
enjoy

Is there a set of plans somewhere for those B-17's?

Reading a book about a Luftwaffe pilot’s experience in WWII, and he always talks about the highly feared “Four Motors” (B-17)and “Fork Tailed Devils” (P-38)

Hello,

There is more full scales flying now for many years. You may have seen this site but just in case;

Great concept profile warbirds. Not really noticeable when flying.

Not knocking the model, but watching the flying, haven't you guys heard about 'rates' and 'exponential' on transmitters
