    • These are nothing but giant RC planes. They act the same way, the pilots are simply forbidden to fly them that way with passengers. LOL

        • Ok, Airliner Friends, I couldn't resist, I ordered me a Windryder 737-700 kit. I was pondering ordering a few planes, I took a look at the FMS P-40, loved it, but honestly felt like something a little different. I ordered the air frame and retracts only. This isn't a scratch build, but it's far from a pnp. So I will be sourcing my fans & servos from Motion RC as usual, as well as most of the other stuff to complete.

          Yesterday I watched a You Tube of someone launching and flying a Slope Soaring version of one of these. Watching that was good enough for me to accept the aerodynamic viability of this model. All and all I'm dreading it a bit. But am now committed. LOL, "Alpha" yur off the hook mate. I got my 737. : )

          Best Regards

          • It’s not an airliner but it would be easy to make a DC-9 or 737 to a similar size.
            Made with the power system from the Freewing A-10 and sized for similar weight and wing loading.
            blue foam and light fiberglass,easy to do!

              Agreed easy to do and someone ought to do it. A dc9 or 737 would be great.
              i can appreciate modlers who go above and beyond
              to create their own designs, i know alot of “pilots” who brag about how much experience they have but have zero template build techniqiues.

                • I'm new on here and I like the ideas of having more airliners. I have the supreme hobbies a340-600 with the extensions on it. It back up and running but need to know where the CG is on it. It's been 4 years since it last flew (crashed) and I have no idea where the CG should be. Any ideas? I also read on hear about the windrider 737. I am on my second one of them. Madian it yesterday. Flew great! I have 3D printed planes that use 120mm edfs. I would love more from MotionRc in regards to airliners too. Something about the wing flex that just get me! Here are a couple of my planes.

                    one quarter the distance of the total wing root from the leading edge of the wing where the wing meets the fuse

                    • Welcome home, Sflcouch! A 120mm completely 3D printed L-39 is quite impressive, I haven't seen that before.

                      Your airliners look great, too. Tengarang's CG recommendation is a good enough range to get started, from which you can then make adjustments. On those Windriders make sure all your moving surfaces are level with the datum line of the wing.

                          Here you go. He has a build thread on RCGroups in the large EDF subforum.

                            Those are exactly the same files I used. Files are easy to print. Had a massive gear problem with the HK retracts that they recommended. Having to purchase JP retracts. Then finally I can have it maiden! I'll re-sand it all down and put a great paint job on it!

                              • I'm in for a 757 or a Connie, even a Lear Jet. Needs to come from Freewing. I tried the Citation, was not impressed.

                                • Convair 440 at 1/15 scale. The TWA is a display but the North Central will fly soon.
                                  Molded fuse and nacelles with foam and wood wings.

                                  One of the classic airliners that has been mostly overlooked.

                                        Talk about an overlooked airplane! The first North American commercial airliner, so overlooked as Avro wasn't supposed to have a 'first' anything. Howard Hughes purchased some of these, but like her military sister, The Avro Arrow, she got Lizzy Bordened.

                                        • I enjoy working around ORD. Get a lot of close ups as planes are coming in for landing. Best is when a 747 or 777 is right over head when im driving on 294 or mannheim
