This is my most complex built so far.

Link to the video I made on this


This is a B-17 Flying Fortress World war 2 bomber. It can bomb and destroy any ship or convoy and also keep away air threats with all its turrets. About three days worth of work went into building this.


Controls:

  • Activate1= stabilize & activate turrets
    Note: Use pitch and roll to control the turrets.

  • Fire weapons\rockets= Engine smoke

  • Activate3= turn off engine smoke
    Note: It doesn't work very well.

  • Activate8= reverse propeller pitch

  • VTOL= flaps

  • Pitch, Roll, Yaw, Throttle= normal flight controls

Weapons:

One giant 50 lb. bomb, 4 25 lb. bombs, and 4 turrets

Notes:

What I modeled this plane after.



Enjoy!

    I have been inside a B-17 before and seen one in person, it is perfection.
