  1. May 29, 2013 #1
    Building a RC Lancaster 1/10 Scale
    Planning on putting in 4 x 4stroke glow fuel enjins on it
    Expected weight is 10-20 kg - but have no real idea yet
    Any sugestions?

    Real Lanc is as follows - from Wikipedia of coarse

    Wingspan: 102*ft 0 in (31.09*m)
    Height: 20*ft 6 in (6.25*m)
    Wing area: 1,297 sq ft (120.5*m²)
    Empty weight: 36,457*lb (16,571*kg)
    Loaded weight: 68,000*lb (30,909*kg) [42]
    Max. takeoff weight: 72,000*lb (32,727*kg) with 22,000 (10,000*kg) bomb
    Powerplant: 4 × Rolls-Royce Merlin XX liquid-cooled V12 engines, 1,280*hp (954*kW) each
