6 turning, 4 burning during NMAD fun fly


Canít help but to post pictures of my B-36 Peacemaker. Scratchbuilt using 6 Power 370s, and 4 30mm EDFs, using 2 3s 2200s for the pushers, 1 3s 1600 for the EDFs, and 1 3s 1100 for the receiver and servos via the BEC. Wingspan is 86 inches (about 1/9th scale) with AUW about 8 lbs. Flys fantastic for a first time large scratch build!!!

Majestic! You might want to rethink stated scale? Years ago, I helped a fellow with a 1/16 scale plan. Span was 14'-5"! According to my poor math skills/calcs, a 1/9 scale B-36 would work out to be about 25' wingspan!!!
