AWESOME!
by: Matt

That is completely awesome Jim, thanks for sharing!

You got 6 more flights on her than the original one. How long did it take to build her?


How do you have your radio set up where you use the side motors to turn when taxiing?

It took 8 months to build and 2 months to design I started with laddies plans I redesigned for the larger version.the steering with motors is a mix with 3 channels to couple rudder'throttle and a togle switch to turn the system on and off by a friend jayson turner he is a heli pilot an it took 3 hours to get working properly. jim

"There is one differance though, yours actually fly's."

Minor correction- so did the original.

Fantastic work I am in awe.

Inside the Spruce Goose
by: Joella

Two days ago I had the privilege of entering the cockpit of the real Spruce Goose with my husband and a tour guide. I sat in the Howard Hughes chair and imagined the thrill it must have been to fly such an extraordinarily beautiful plane. I congratulate you on making such a terrific copy of Mr. Hughes dream plane. Thank you for letting us see how it looks in the air and on the water.

Breathtaking
by: Tom

Hi is the scale also to that of weight? What materials did you use for the construction?
I'm just amazed at how well your replica flies, and makes me wonder how much better the original would have flown if Mr. Hughes had the aluminum he wanted to build it with.
