    B-47 RC plane?

    Hey Guys, does anyone make a RC B-47? I haven't seen or heard of one and would like to make one in the far future. Can someone explain how mutli engine RC planes work, how do you achieve the same RPM for both engines so it flies straight? I'd be guessing on most of it. Thanks Rick

    Here is the only RC B-47 that I have heard about.

    Here's some pics of Ray Cannon's B-47 that I flew at AZ Jet Rally. It won Best Electric and Best Boeing. Retracts, doors and 4 Wemotec fans. This is really a great flier!

    I just emailed you a link to a set of B47 plans on that website we are not allowed to mention (starts with an "e")

    BTW: I have a set of the plans of the B47 that I linked to you. It's a big plane. The plans show two Cox .15's on the inboard pylons with cut down props. The fuselage is big enough that if I get around to building it (lots of projects ahead of it) I will be sticking a .90 in the nose. If you go the designed route, I would recommend an electric conversion so you wouldn't have to worry about engine reliability as much.

    It's a cool looking plan.

    Actually the B-47D turboprop model planset from Air Age Publishing is available today for I believe $15.



    While this is not scale it could be enlarged to whatever size desired to serve as the basis for a scale B-47...project of either turboprop or otherwise jet B-47...

    To view the planset click the link I provided for your enlightenment.... [link]http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=52194[/link]

    Why do they call it "dead weight" if it keeps your airplane alive?

    RE: B-47 RC plane?

    Its interesting this thread rolled over and died...

    It would have been nice for more information to be shared about Ray Cannon's B-47.
    There are several people following my thread who would welcome information about
    something smaller. Dave in Seattle is in the middle of his built of a 1/16th which is in
    need of a helping hand these days. Ray's information may be helpful to him.
