Anybody up for one heck of a huge plane?? FRCFoamies Avro Lancaster WW2 Heavy Bomber 1409329960168_wps_26_Action_Station_images_of_.jpg  4-1.png

Visit FRCFoamies HERE

The Avro Lancaster came into service in 1942 and was responsible for over 60% of the bombs by Britain during the WW2! It was fitted with 4 Rolls Royce Merlin engines, had a 102 foot wingspan and 272 max cruising speed and carried a crew of seven. Eight machine guns provided it's defense. They primarily flew night time bombing raids, some daytime raids, but were given the name "Dam Busters" due to the famous missions they flew over Germany where they used bouncing 9000 lb bombs dropped with a back spin.

They bounced over nets and barriers in order to avoid getting snagged. Once they hit the dam, the back spin allowed them to roll down the dam and detonate at the bottom. Despite their large size, the Lancaster's stable flight characteristics and excellent maneuverability made them perfect for this roll as they could fly low while following the twists and turns of the river banks leading to the dam. Below is a short video which includes such a dam busting flight...
This is a plane that Jay has been working on for some time in between our other projects, but it's time has come. With a 60 inch wingspan, 40 inch length, 4 engines and split tail, it is one heck of a plane to get right and it looks like Jay has done his Jay thing with it [smile] It is based off of 8 inch props with Blue Wonder 1300kv type motors to keep things nice and light. As has been the case with most of our recent planes, this is a scale score and fold design complete with airfoil wings with internal stiffening structure! Building and testing has commenced and we will keep you up to date with our progress. All the best! Jay and Greg

Better get me a matching set of 4 motors and esc's.

@F1wananbe , rough placement or span between motors so we know what the limits are for props?

I would hold off on ordering motor just yet. This is still under development and intended for 8" props.

Ideally I'd like to see a similar setup as the FRCmig-29 Fulcrum twin using uber light weight quad motors. Very affordable and efficient running on a 2s battery.

There is more to come on this craft as testing has only begun at this stage. Release information and suggested equipment is yet to be announced.

Pretty cool plane and already I'm thinking... printing some gun turrets and other accessories
Fly like your mad at it.

I have had really good success with these guys in the 1400kv model spinning a 10X5 prop which is over what they recommend but still ticking.

Looking forward to this one guys. My 150% Mosquito flew great at a similar size.
Slowly working my way through the RCPowers and FRC Foamies plans list

Darn British planes, you'd think he's partial to them or something.

i'm a power and speed junkie so i always go for more KV...any 1300-1400 i've had has disappointed me..so i always go higher kv...hence my use of the 1500-1600 ones for my slower flyers.
