With the evolution of composite materials, the advancement of electric gear motors and battery technology, the 126” Wing Span B-17 was a logical choice for the first on bomber aircraft to joint our fleet of WWII aircraft.
Be sure to view the UTube videos at the bottom of this page. You can see the combat packages in action! Flashing 360 degree rotating turret guns are now operational.
The CJM B-17 has successfully passed all test flight milestones. Test Flight #1 we had a grass takeoff on the right side of the runway due to a dragging wheel and on flight #2, the plane took off on the left side in the grass. We even had an engine failure on flight #1. We have clearly shown the plane is grass capable! If you can take off in 4” tall grass, surely you can takeoff on a runway. With that in mind, our goal for Flight 3 is hard surface runway and bomb drop operation. According to PJ Ash, the plane is very stable with no adverse flight characteristics, including gear and flap operation.
PJ Ash designed a wood transportation/maintenance stand for his B-17. The stand is pretty neat and allow for easy aircraft assembly, engine trim, and gear operation. I contracted for him to make 5 stands that will be included with the first 5 kits at no charge.
