can anyone help me please? I am looking for plans or a kit to build a vulcan for 4x edf units and if possible retracts as well. I know that a modeller in the uk called Cyril Carr had sucess with this design does any one know of him? Thanks The Electricfan

Traplet has a pusher that could be converted easily to electric (they have a bunch of molded parts, too, making the build easier):

Here's a guy who built a depron microfan Vulcan over on rcgroups:

I think the last one was by Chris Golds of "Quiet & Electric Flight"... you might also want to take a look at their plans listing.


.... I was lucky to see a real Vulcan fly at the Dayton Air Fair back in the '70s. Magnificent plane and spectacular flybys. Sadly it crashed out in the midwest 2 weeks later, killing all the crew....

For all those Vulcan Bomber fans out there I'm pleased to direct you to the following site which is dedicated to the restoration to full capability of XH558. To quote their CEO The return of XH558 is now not a question of if, but when. By all accounts she will fly again in 2007.

The site certainly provides lots of info on this fascinating project
