Hey guys,
Here's my first official RC Today build thread. I'm going to update as I build, so fair warning the next possible update will be next week.

And no, you didn't read the title wrong I'm building exactly what it says. Here's the plan. I want to fly scale FPV, and I love B-17's SO it made perfect since build an FPV bomber. Once I figured out how big it would have to be to do a nice scale cockpit I realized it would be a big powerful mother. SO why not tow gliders up with it? lol

design points go as so...
110" wing,
4 electric motors
Large battery capacity for longer flights
retractable landing gear
tow release
scale cockpit with fpv camera on a 3 axis gimbal
camera in the nose cone (bombardier position) for take off and landing
channel splitter so I can swap between cameras
simple KF wing.

The outside will be a little sparse, I'm not going to go crazy on detail because I'll be flying from inside.
okay, that's all I can think of, if you have any questions throw them my way.

Holy cow that's huge.

The pink panther should be the copilot

A scalish cockpit for your camera with analog compass, voltmeter, etc would be epic!

Well not much to report. Camera's on order, I have the pan tilt camera mount, and a three way camera switcher. But the plane itself is sitting in pieces in the garage until my Mustang project car sells. I need the space to start this project.

Light weight? thats the plan. I want a nice slow scale flyer. After SEFF week, I'm going to come home and start work on it? I've got a lot of servo's and wires to order! lol
