|The He-111 has a wingspan of 150" powered by Zenoah G-45's. Has scratch built gear. The plane is probably the best flying twin I have. It has had 4 different paint schemes over its 7 seasons. Not only does it drop bombs but it has successfuly launched a rocket powered r/c version of the V-1 Buzz bomb. This latest version is a "J" model which was an earlier model with a standard nose. It was used extensively during the Spanish civil war about 1935.
The picture above right was the crash site of the first HE-111 that I built. It had a wingspan of 105" and was powered by Webra .90's. The plane lasted 6 flights. On flight 6 it lost the right engine on takeoff. I recovered and flew for about 1/2 mile and then had an attack of stupidity. Letting the rudder and aileron go to neutral was not smart. The plane snapped and spun in before I could blink. Results above.
|August 2008 Jeff Quesenberry from MN took the plane off my hands and I'll be darned he brought it to FDL in August of 2009. Thanks to Jeff, I had a chance to fly it again.|
