RC 777 from RC Castle.

The rc 777 from RC Castle is for three of four channel control. The ARF foamy comes with motors turning ducted fan units.  It has a 55.16" wingspan, is 57.13" long, and weighs around 3.3 lbs.

The 777, produced by Boeing, is larger than all other two engine or three engine commercial aircraft.  It is the first ever jet passenger aircraft to be completely designed by computer.  Unlike other aircraft, a mock-up was never produced. This helped lower development costs.

You can find plans for the rc 777 pictured above from Joe Yap at hilbren.nl/rcplans. The rc 777 is a slope soarer for ailerons, rudder, and elevator controls.  Its wingspan is 72", length is 86", and weight about 4 lbs.

Its wing is said to be the world's most efficient used in a current airliner.  We are told that its turbojets are the most powerful, efficient, and quietest for the amount of power that they produce.
