    I can't believe you didn't give it retracts [:'(]

    RE: guillows b-17 5ch E-conversion

    no flight report yet! still have to finish the motors and cover the wings, as far as the retracts! i had to draw the line somewhere, and thats where i drew it! my big concern was weight, pneumatic are to big and did'nt need extra weight of seros and linkage! maybe next time, keep in mind its a guillows!!!! never designed to fly r/c!! now the big royal will be full house!!! with functional gun turrets!!! no not real bullets!! moveable

    surely GWS, minis would have worked? and a 5.4g servo?

    RE: guillows b-17 5ch E-conversion

    I just recently started flying this multiplex cargo. I can stuff 10 bombs in the bombay.
    Someone gave me a Guillows B-17, my thought was 280 motors too. I had managed to find some white Tornado 3 blade props, which ones do you have on yours?

    Yeah really Basher, that is slick. What is your AUW ? What radio gear are you going with ? Can't wait to hear how it fly's.

    RE: guillows b-17 5ch E-conversion

    I have one of these kits, and this is exactly what I am attempting to do. I first have tested my building skills on a cheaper $80 B29 kit. Some area needs strengthening others need lightening.

    Have you flown the model.

    Looken good and good luck on first flight.
    The propeller is the pilots cooling fan, if it goes out the pilot starts to sweat.

    That looks great Basher, Hope it flies alright
    Be worried when the object you are assembling looks normal but there are a few screws and/or devices left in the box

    RE: guillows b-17 5ch E-conversion

    Ok, so I registered to this website because I got stuck DOING THE SAME MODEL. Things aren't fitting as perfectly as i'd like them to, and the left wing (first one i'm doing) seems to hate me with a passion. (BTW, this is my first balsa wood model ever).
    Can you help me with the leading edge of the left wing? I don't understand how it wants me to cut it and sand it...its intimidating
