This is the eighth in the series of large scale classic piston powered WW2 warbirds, this one is 30’ span and designed to reproduce the full size aircraft characteristics and to be flown in a true scale manner.
Pilots, including the present day pilots of the Commemorative Air Force’s Fifi, the last-remaining flying B-29, describe flight after takeoff as being an urgent struggle for speed, B-29s lacked boosted controls and as a consequence they required considerable physical strength to operate, and generally, flight after takeoff should consist of striving for altitude !!!
Once up to height the B29 could achieve the astonishing top speed of 350mph and cruse at 220mph, a climb rate of 900’ per minute was also possible, this performance was bestowed by the four Wright 18 cylinder double row radials.
Hold the plane on brakes, wind up to half throttle, release brakes, start the roll out, throttle up to full power and watch the roll out to lift off speed, notice the slight tail down sit at cruise speed replicating the real plane, engine mixture is set rich giving some smoke, you may notice the slight out of synch’ engine noise also.
Have fun pilot!!
Many thanks to Ricky Delton for the fantastic EA.
