12-Engine Flying Boat!

A loyal scratch-built project, this 1/10-scale Dornier DO X1a was designed, built and piloted by Michael Bräuer. This considerable built-up craft has a 16-foot wingspan and weighs in during 132 pounds, and it’s powered by twelve (12!) O.S. .62 4-strokes. Michael records that he spent one year building this hulk craft and that it has Futaba servos, fiberglass engine cowls and retracts and that a tip speed is 59mph. The sound those 12 powerplants make is incredible, and a video shows how good a indication handles in really complicated wind, even on landing. Thanks to RCScaleAirplanes for holding and posting this good video!
