The 72” electric B17 was designed to compliment the successful Lancaster of the same size and again is a real builders model.
Fully built up construction using balsa and plywood. The fuselage is built over the plan using formers and stringers and rolled balsa sheeted finish. The wings are a built-up structure of ribs over a main spar and balsa sheeted. The tailplane built up in a similar fashion to the wings.
Originally designed for four 400-6V geared motors and 16-cells but we now recommend a brushless setup with lithium polymer batteries for the best flight performance and duration.
The model is designed for retractable undercarriage.
Plan, canopy, turrets, and cowls are available as is a CNC pack and wood pack.
The CNC pack includes, ply fuselage formers, spines and doublers, ply wing ribs and the nacelle structure, tailplane and fin ribs.
