What light system are you using?

I've seen a [link=http://www.curtek.com/store/customer/product.php?productid=2]Curtek Systems[/link] Learjet
Combo kit on the Airliner and it looks just freakin' awesome! Strobes and everything!!! [8D]
Landing floods are controlled through an auxilliary channel on your radio.

Check out the video on that page of the Learjet, pretty impressive. The floods alone are worth the price of admission.

Just saw the new pics...guess they didn't come up last time I checked.

Great job, have you wound up the motors yet? Do they sound pretty synchronized or do the esc's
automatically do this anyway?

Please post a video if at all possible...I'd love to see it in the air and hear what 4
fans sound like!!!

My 2 cents, with adding the outboard motors you will have to be careful if you have not added strength to the wing as the additional motors will want to twist the wing which will give you wash-in vs wash-out.

Please re-read my post I started off by saying if you have not ...not you have not ... it was just a word of friendly advise from one airline guy to another ... I would not have expected such a vile reply ... so uncool. You should be ashamed of yourself.

And no this is not Tony

Take it Outside Girls....

Jumbo, un-bunch your panties, cause you DID come off a little harsh at that guy. He was only making friendly conversation, AND being helpful.

Don't know if you have realized that yet, but it is easy to see as on outsider.

I am also a newcomer. And I must say straight away that your plane is vulcan awesome dude!!!

Glad to see you have the cohones to go for the 747. That plane is sexy. I'll even say it has moxy. But Need more input... much more...

Do you have any more updates? More photos or videos? Flight characteristics? How are retracts working out?

We grew up under runway 9 here in IL, so I have a mild OCD for Jet Airliners. Especially the Electric RC type.

They turn me on. Is that so wrong?

Now, can we talk plane now?

Well late,

JD

I finally decided to take the plunge and try my hand at this airliner. Being an active duty KC-135 Boom Operator I decided to change it to a KC-777 (complete with working boom). I am powering it with the recommended 2 X 450 DF motors, 2X 35 amp speed controllers, and 2X 2100 MaH batteries. All I have left to do is wire up the motors and put the engine cowlings on. Sure hope it flies as good as it looks. Another hit for E-Flite!

Jumbo...

Great to hear she's in the air!!!

Sounds exciting, can't wait to see it in action!!!

If I can offer any advice with video conversions or uploads, please let me know. Also, others here may know more than I.


Anyone up for designing the stock superliner in the "RealFlight" Simulator?
I have thought of doing it myself, but others here may do it better and faster than I.
It needs to be done. If done right, the designer could gain much recognition.

509thBoomer...

Great job on your plane as well.

Operating the real boom Has to be one of the worlds most dangerous professions.

Keep us updated guys.

Got the maiden out of the way today and I must say that the airliner (or should I say "Tanker" ) is really cool! Granted it will not fly mach 1 like my F-16 but it is a blast to shoot touch and goes with it. I added the boom on the second flight and it still flew perfectly. Can't wait until the sun comes up tomorrow so I can get back out to the field.

Jumbo,

Send me a pm with your video setup and I will help you if I can.

Keep posting these nice pics guys.

I wonder if this plane could be turned into a DC-10 ?

No, its not a turbine (I do have one though, its a Violett with a P-80 (See pics)). The T-Bird is a .91 powered Cermerk F-16. It is a blast to fly but will not do the beautiful touch and go's as the airliner!
