Build of a RC Avro Vulcan B2 Bomber
This is the build of Avro Vulcan B2 Bomber 36″ wingspan depron bomber with two brush-less pusher motors available from Green Air Designs.
Flies extremely well on a 1300mAH Lipo battery. Depron is usually used for floor insulation but is used as one of the main building materials for Radio Controlled planes these days
Its finished as the Vulcan that bombed the runway at Port Stanley in the Falklands – XM607 Which is on display at the RAF base Waddington in Lincolnshire. Highly recommended the book Vulcan 607 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Vulcan-607-Rowland-White/dp/0593053915. The operation was know as Black Buck and wouldn’t have been possible without the Handley Page Victor tankers, about a dozen were required. XM607 was actually the backup as XM598 had a problem with a window seal had had to turn back.
The raid at the time was the longest bombing raid ever – 8,000 miles.
The model is made from Depron . If you click on the first image a slide show will start.
Vulcan shows 175 Watts on the watts meter with a weight of 20 oz with battery it has 140Watt per pound so should be quite a lively performer. Battery is a 1300mAH 3s lipo.
Thanks for looking – Update I crashed her and she’s in the repair hanger waiting for a nose job.
