    Why Selling: Too big for my flying field.
     
    Willing to Trade: Yes

    Item Description:

    For sale / trade fully built and ready to fly Wingspan Models 1/9 scale 138 B-17G bomber. Model was built in 2009 by an experienced builder who successfully built and flew several very similar 1/9 scale Don Smith B-17s prior to completing this model. I bought it 2015. It has not yet flown.

    The plane weighs 68lbs and is very scale. It has four 20cc electronic ignition G20ei gasoline engines, Robart Retracts, brakes, rotating turrets, panel lines, functioning bomb bay doors and bomb drop system, detailed cockpit, painted crew, lights and gyro on rudder. The plane comes with a Futaba T9 Cap TX and RX (already programmed), full plans, spare paint and custom storage / transport / assembly cradle that was designed to have the whole plane fit into a minivan. New fuel tanks and fuel tubing, electronic ignition modules, ignition batteries and switches were installed in Summer 2017. The stab and tail are removable.

    Model is balanced with easily accessible weight in the nose (but obviously should be re-checked prior to maiden by buyer).

    Open to trades for comparable scale warbird / twin.

    Thanks for looking.

    Let me first say your bomber is awesome, just curious, are those four 20cc Zenoah's putting out enough power to properly fly a 68lb plane like that, In no way do I ask this as a negative but for information for a future project in which I was thinking of the G26 or DLE 30s.

    Hi - Although I don't know for certain if the four 20cc Zenoahs are strong enough as it hasn't been maidened yet, many experienced builders have told me that they think they should be sufficient, even with the scale 3-blade props. I can tell you that they do pull it very nicely when I taxi the plane.

    Good luck with your future project.

    Regards
