    RE: E-Flite Super Airliner

    Hey - if you're happy, I'm happy

    In my case, I can look out my office window and do a direct comparison, wee bit more differences between a 747-400 and a 777 than the tail

    RE: E-Flite Super Airliner

    Yes, and the wingspan to overall length is completely different, the nose shape is different, the wing root is different, the landing gear are different, the motor diameter is different..........................[>:]

    LAX 95-96?

    Working for us (LAWA) or Barnett, Morrow Meadows, Comet?

    But you're right - they're not small

    RE: E-Flite Super Airliner

    I like the modification.
    Will it get off the ground when you're done? Sounding heavy.
    Would look cool taxiing around. Just kidding.

    Looking forward to hearing about the replacement 3800Kv motors. Whose are they?

    RE: E-Flite Super Airliner

    Flyfalcons,

    That's pretty cool that you lived here for a while...

    Yeah, It's become quite active as far as the RC airplane community is concerned ...a club and
    a HUUUUGE expanse of an outlaw field containing long roads in it's grid. It's a development gone sour
    and all that remains are the roads, it's better than the club as it attracts turbine traffic due to
    the improved runways. It's out in west Palm Bay, FL and it's called "The Compound".

    There's free-flight, u-control, rocketry, motorized paragliding as well as a practice area for
    lots of full scale aerobats albeit, high in the air. It's really paradise and all RC is conducted in
    one area, all the time.

    RE: E-Flite Super Airliner

    Jumbo,

    Obviously it's not going to be an exact 747 nor do I believe you intended
    to have an exact copy of a 747 so on that note, I really commend your vision here.
    Looks like it's going to be a whole heck of handful at first but real fun after the kinks (if any)
    have been worked out.

    Did you say 4-Li-Po's and ESC's? Where will you be placing the other 2 batts?

    Either way...NICE WORK and have fun!

    RE: E-Flite Super Airliner

    My suggestion to get the shape right, scan in a 747 side view, use a program called Tileprint to scale it up (just the nose back to the wing, print it out, then glue that paper onto some cardboard and cut out the inside so that you can fit it around the nose and wherever it hits the foam, take off more material.

    RE: E-Flite Super Airliner

    Very cool Jumbo!

    I'm going to keep mine as a 777, but I'm adding retracts & lights, along with a different color scheme. I had a not so good engine out experience today, so I have some repairs to do anyway. Power shouldn't be a problem - it's got plenty to spare, as long as it stays fairly light. Pics in my gallery. [8D]

    RE: E-Flite Super Airliner

    Nope. Servos and radio all fine, using BEC on both speed controls so the radio always has power. Just broke the fuselage and popped an engine nacelle loose, no biggie to repair. have some cracks in the wings too, but those are getting a major rebuild anyway to add retracts and lights, so the wing will get fixed in that process.

    Just stupidity on my part. I wasn't flying with a timer, so I let the batteries get too low after about a 10-15 minute flight with multiple touch & gos. I had just done a full stop landing to make an adjustment and had the engine cut out on takeoff/climbout (approx 10-15 ft.). Not good, especially when you try to turn into the good engine, with sagging power. I lost one engine instead of both because I'm using two seperate batteries/speed controls/motors. I may have to re-think that a bit, especially when I add all this weight with the modifications for lights and retracts, along with new paint/covering.

    I know better, really. I was just having too much fun.

    that 747 you built is going to look good in the air.
    looking forward to some flight photos and video.

    cwrr5: sorry to hear about your hard landing.
    I haven't had a chance to build mine yet, too many projects, too little time

    cwrr5,

    Really sorry about the mishap too, but it sounds like you
    have it under control.[8D]

    Thanks for the great pics!!!! Those ailerons aren't as outboard as I once thought.

    I noticed in your gallery you said you were using a flaperon mix?
    Is there any adverse yawing effect on slow approaches with flaperons?
    Just wonderinhg if your having to compensate with any rudder either manually or through
    a P-mix?

    Hi guys,
    im going to try to use retracts/ flaps in the airliner, so i was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on which brand of retract i should use, and i am going to use the existing landing gear, and fix them to the retract mechanics. Also if anyone has any tips on installing these in a plane like this, im a newbie to small retracts. thanks

    I haven't flown it enough yet to get all the trims & mixes fully worked out. The mishap happened on flight #4. [:'(]

    I normally switch over to rudder on the landing approach, only using ailerons to keep the wings level or to set the plane into a crosswind. As long as both flaps (or flaperons) are down and move equal amounts, they shouldn't create any problems. That being said, I do have a bit more "down" in the right aileron on this one than the left, something I'll have to fix during the repair also.

    Repairs going good so far, just wish I had more time. Fuselage is repaired and has been taken outside for the first sanding&filling before the fiberglass job. I started contruction of the nose wheel box, which contains the nose gear& retract, retract & steering servos, and all the linkages for the gear doors, along with the wiring and micro switch for the nose landing light. The box will be removeable for adjustments and repairs(if and when!)

    I'm using a set of small robart mechanical retracts, looks as though they should work perfectly. These will just screw into new ply mounting plates int the wing, and nose gear will screw into a mounting plate in the nose gear box I'm building. I'm planning to use the stock struts and wheels, they look good. [sm=thumbup.gif]
