Savoia Marchetti SM 91


Hi,
this is my last creation for electric combat: Savoia Marchetti SM 91, very similar to Lookeed P-38. I'm unsure if it will match game rules, because it was a prototype: the real thing flew once, then when Italy surrended in '42, the project was taken by German Luftwaffe, but a few days after an allied bombing destroyed the plane and the development has been stopped.

At hte moment our rules does not allows prototypes, but a revision is pending... let's hope to give a second chance to this beautiful airframe.

The model wingspan is 118 cm (roughly 45"), weights 570 grams with 1500 LiPOly 2s1p 2xSpeed 400 7,2v. Still waiting for maiden; maybe next weekend (weather permitting; now it's pretty warm for being December, 10 deg. Celsius, but windy). the second pic shows a detail of the nose with battery - esc - receiver bay.
