Turbines are cool but I still like the sound of a radial.

Umm...got plenty, thanks, like a green, low-mileage army ambulance. Dirt cheap.

Top that.


A question about an R/C airplane fantasy I've harbored for years: has anyone ever been crazy/ambitious enough to build a flying R/C B-36? Is such a thing within the bounds of reason?

I'm discovering that what I consider the bounds of reason in RC planes is.... somewhat flexible.

The Electric Scale forum never ceases to amaze me. I've seen a build thread on a 104" WS Zeppelin Straken R-7 running six motors, and there was Martin Hunter's big Russian monstrosity, I think it was the 1930's 10 motored Tupolev ANT 20..

Here's the thread.. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...hlight=Tupolev

Incredible scratchbuild by Martin, I'm totally in awe, and he and his wife lived in a tiny house.

I can not imagine the balls needed to to put that on a runway and fire it up. All that time and work.
Wow is right...

Probably last video highlights of the big Cheesy Poof.
It's slow, boring, self indulgent, and unless you've built something from scratch and launched it; waaaay too long.

But it was very fun, very rewarding, and has given me the confidence to move on to bigger and better things.
