Capt. Midnight: I posted the picture of your bomber in another thread a coupla' weeks ago. It's gorgeous. How did you resist pushing the throttle lever all the way forward when you were taxiing it?

[quote=Capt. Midnight;28485]Hi WaterBugs!

sure hope yours flys better than the original P6M. I spent many hours on the oringinal design and build of the rotating bomb bay door. sure was unique. it at rattled the buildings for a block everytime we drop tested the 2000 pound dummy bomb. itsure would be unique on a RC model. will be glad to help, would stretch the old brain. the rotating bomb door sure was unique. dick stamm

Interesting info, Dick...

So sad about that aircraft, it was/is gorgeous. I understand the problem was an elevator jack or something, destroying a couple of prototypes.

No we did the design and full scale mock up and test fixtures, drop test in Detroit,Mich., Hudson Motors. then the actual flight items also. did spend a lot of time in Baltimore in prep for flight tests.

That's just the problem- It doesn't go....

He has been posting pictures of this plane for years on R/C Groups. It has never flown ( to the best of my knowledge ).
