Mark VII -> RC B29 (9/5/2007 5:37:33 AM)

Check out this giant flying B29 model!

Ian R -> RE: RC B29 (9/5/2007 5:50:08 AM)

Very cool. Can they do a mini turbo fan yet?




marky -> RE: RC B29 (9/5/2007 6:49:07 AM)

that is wild

too cool

have u guys seen RC combat warships? they use BBs!!




TAIL GUNNER -> RE: RC B29 (9/5/2007 8:35:21 AM)

That's freakin' awesome!

I noticed the landing gear retract too....[X(]




Terminus -> RE: RC B29 (9/5/2007 3:01:20 PM)

Damn![8D] Very smooth landing, considering the surface.




tocaff -> RE: RC B29 (9/5/2007 5:46:57 PM)

I love it,retractable gear and all.  I'll bet the the engines could turn more than a 2 bladed prop.




niceguy2005 -> RE: RC B29 (9/5/2007 6:12:53 PM)

So where does RC Modeling stop and UAVs start?[X(]




Dixie -> RE: RC B29 (9/5/2007 6:53:26 PM)

r/cturbo fan

I don't think they do, it's probably far too complicated to make a working one at that sort of scale. As for the 'plane, it is rather spiffy [:)]




Ian R -> RE: RC B29 (9/5/2007 7:52:27 PM)

They could probably pick up some cheap surplus titanium for the turbine blades (part of the "peace dividend") [:D]

I saw "jet" powered RC jet replica (Su-27 "Flanker"). The speed of this 2 meter "thingie" was about 350 km/h !!! [X(]

At the 1/5 scale Little Boy.

Check this out.

It weighs 300lbs, has a 23ft wingspan and is powered by 8 turbine engines.

And to prove it flies......

Ian R -> RE: RC B29 (9/6/2007 12:55:32 PM)

I always though jet engines were simpler in some ways than piston ones. They probably run on 2 stroke fuel. (kerosene?)

I want one of those  - before I get the Harley.[;)]




Terminus -> RE: RC B29 (9/6/2007 12:57:00 PM)

What country does that RC B-52 fly in, Reg?




Reg -> RE: RC B52 (9/6/2007 1:50:11 PM)


To be honest I don't know.

That's the trouble when people circulate interesting pictures and don't cite where they got them from. However, the statistics are in imperial units so that points towards the U.S. but that may not be the case.

Just because I can, another picture....
(there were a lot more in the set).

I like the Vulcan in the background [:D]

I'm sure that when I was a lad my granddad mentioned that you used to be able to get 'jet' motors for r/c aircraft although they were more like rockets IIRC. Even with modern production etc a gas turbine engine would surely be very expensive in that sort of size? I suppose though, that if they are going to spend a great deal of time and money then the cost of the engines is probably nothing to them.

I believe the B-52 above was worth $40,000. The engines are (were) definitely proper though miniature gas turbines and they aren't cheap. A web search will show you just how sophisticated they have become these days.

http://www.rc-airplane-world.com/model-jet-engine.html has info on these engines and prices start at US$2,500. The B-52 had eight of them. Ouch!!!

In 1968 a real Piper J3 (N92360) could be had for $1500 bucks.
Kinda puts a perspective on things.......
Rich men and their toys.......
Nice that these guys can share their toys with the rest of us.......

That was worth almost as much as an actual VC10 [X(][:D][;)]

How true... what a waste... [:(]

BTW, what exactly happened to the RC model?

Ian R -> RE: RC B52 (9/6/2007 4:42:08 PM)

It crashed [;)]




Ian R -> RE: RC B52 (9/6/2007 4:43:00 PM)

No... not minature SA-2s?

Apollo11 -> RE: RC B52 (9/6/2007 6:03:35 PM)

Hi all,

I think this is the video of the RC B-52 crash (simple "Google" & "YouTube" search)!!!
