We recently discovered this book full of over 200 photos of the restoration of a B-17 Flying Fortress named City of Savannah. To say we were impressed and enjoyed this book is an understatement! Airplane restoration and military aviation enthusiasts alike can follow the airplane’s journey from the storage hangers of the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum to the Combat Gallery of the Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force where it arrived in pieces on the backs of four tractor-trailers. The City of Savannah volunteers brought a wide range of skills to the task—they were airframe and power plant mechanics, painters, aeronautical engineers, electrical engineers, business people and administrators, even a former physics professor with a Ph.D. and 30 years of flying experience. Many were drawn to the project after their day jobs at Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation, LMI Aerospace, Inc., and the 165th Airlift Wing of the Georgia Air National Guard. Others were retired and eager to make a long-term commitment to restoring a vintage warbird. Read More Details and Buy the B-17 Flying Fortress Restoration Book Here
Did you hear the news? MrRCSound has upgraded the TT-25 Transducers! Here is the nitty gritty: Some of you may remember the supply problem MrRCSound had last year with introduction of the speaker-less transducer RC sound system and at the beginning of this year. This improvement to the MrRCSound system, of moving to sound transducers instead of traditional speakers, was so popular that we sold out before subsequent production runs could be completed. This issue has been resolved! Part of the solution was switching to a different manufacturer. An added benefit is this transition allowed for improvements to the design and craftsmanship of the units due to improvements of the new manufacturer’s technology. With this comes: More volume Better bass tones Internal testing and independent third party testing indicate 2-4db improvements depending on the sound profile and module configuration (quantity of transducers). Additionally there are significant gains at peak volume. You won’t notice much difference, if any, in the appearance of the transducers. But rest assured, under the hood, as they say; the new TT-25 Transducers are a one of a kind beast made to exacting specifications of MrRCSound. These new transducers simply want to let some engines roar! What does this mean to you? If you already own a Version 4.1 MrRCSound system then you can upgrade your transducers by clicking the Add to Cart button below. If you don’t yet own an rc sound system for your airplanes; then now is the time to buy a MrRCSound System. Visit our MrRCSound sales page by clicking here.

Today marks a revolution in RC Sound! Previously, with some rc sound kits you would of had to match speakers, ohms, impedences, wattage; practically engineering your entire system. With the MrRCSound system for planes we changed all of that over the past few years… But wait there’s more 😎 You used to have to cut holes in your planes for the speakers. BUT NOT ANYMORE!!! All Mr. RC Sound systems now ship with the TT-25 Sound Transducers instead of the Max2-SPL speakers thus eliminating the need to cut holes in your plane. On top of all the other benefits that the MrRCSound systems currently provide, such as being plug-n-play, portable between planes, having interchangeable sound profile chips, and capable of synchronized lights with the gun sounds; the move away from speakers and towards the TT-25 Sound Transducer is hailed as a revolutionary advancement in the RC Sound world. 8 Benefits of the TT-25 in the Mr. RC Sound Systems Weight: The new TT-25 weighs a paltry 2.5oz. A full 2oz. (plus some) less than the Max2-SPL speakers that the MrRCSound kits previously shipped with The Max2-SPL speaker used to be the smallest speaker for RC sound systems! The TT-25 makes the MrRCSound by far the lightest sound system available. Size: The new TT-25 is about 2″ round x 1″ thick. This requires significantly less space in your fuselage over speaker based rc sound systems. It will fit in most any aircraft down to a wingspan of 1100mm, as well as nearly any ground vehicle down to about +1/12 scale. Did we mention? NO MORE HOLES!!! Simply locate a flat spot of foam inside your foam plane to mount the TT-25, approximately 1″ square (25mm). The revolution is this: the airframe becomes your rc sound speaker! There is no need to cut holes in your plane, mount speakers, or even fabricate covers over them. The TT-25 is literally, peel, stick and play! Ease of install: What used to take around an hour’s worth of install time (for the whole unit to cut holes and mount the speakers) just dropped to less than 10 minutes for the whole system to be mounted and ready to go. This is truly plug-n-play sound for your plane! The MrRCSound is simply the fastest and easiest RC sound system to install and use for your R/C sound needs. No sound dead spots: Speakers are typically directional in the production of their sound waves. Even with 2 speakers or 4 speakers in the Ultra system, some flight orientations would lead to dead spots in the hearing of the emitted sound. Additionally the pilot and spectators may have experienced diminished volume due to the direction of sound. With the TT-25, the airframe is the speaker, so these dead spots have been significantly reduced and the only cause of diminished sound is the flight distance and environmental conditions. Improved Bass response: The TT-25 has a deeper tone to them, while at the same time keeping the nuances and clarity of the sound profile and auxiliary sounds. They are also adjustable to a degree. The thicker […]

Since I was a young boy, one of the things I enjoyed the most when building a model was detailing the model and putting my own personal touch on it. Whether it was a model boat, a train layout or an airplane; I spent hours thinking about different ways that I could detail and personalize them. One of the things I love about FMS Planes is that their models are 90% complete with super details which means there's very little build time. So adding your own personal touch to these models is Read more [...] Continue Reading
