Quick Overview

 

This model was designed at 1:22 scale with a wingspan of 60" & features stick & tissue style construction with 4 channel RC to keep it light. Since the high aspect ratio wing doesn't offer much in the way of area, keeping the weight down is a must. Don't let that scare you. Even at 37 oz. flying weight and a wing loading in the 16 oz./sq. ft. range the B-24 flies and handles beautifully.

Power is provided by (4) 400-class outrunner motors and controlled by (4) sub-micro servos and (4) 12A ESC's. Construction is primarily of balsa and lite ply. The battery is accessed through a hatch on top of the wing and the wing is removable for easy transport.

Specifications

Wing Span: 60 in. Plane Length: 38 in. Wing Area: 327 sq. in. Engine: Electric/RC
