hi from uk, ive got the bell imel ho229 plan and co ordinates package(ace people to deal with) has any one built one? as my kit of bits is here soon and too many people know for me to weagle out of building it. here one of the lipo gods is chris golds( her majesties flying club retired) chris did a ho229 for edf in the days of rheostat speed control and lead acid batteries. it flew well off a bungee launch but used drag rudders and elevon control as per reimars original. im using 75mm fans with outrunners 1.2kg @ 37a ( allegedly). so has anyone else trod this path or am i a pilgrim? which is odd as i am originally from plymouth! answers on a stuck down envelope. ciao:confused:

hi thanks for the thread , the gas turbine ho 229 looks fantastic and the pics of the fan intakes has made more sense of the plan. as a training mission ive got a baby ho229 for gws 40mm fans on its way from those splendid chaps at robotbirds (www.robotbirds.com (http://www.robotbirds.com)) this should provide some usefull info on a) if it flies and b) if i can fly it! has anyone come across some sort of therapy or ointment to help with my lipocondria? this morning it was-4c but ihad to get my pre work fix ,me 262 with the rising sun behind it life is good! ciao;) :)
