Our model of the B-17 offers excellent performance in a relatively small and simple package. The model is specifically designed to use four of our 10gm brushless motors with scale-size 5″ 3-bladed props, but could also be used with the brushed GWS IPS motor. With the recommended brushless motor and 2-cell LiPo battery pack, the model flies realistically with plenty of power in reserve. It is stable and very responsive to the controls. We recommend it for indoor R/C flying, or outdoors in calm conditions.
The kit includes the foam parts necessary to construct the model, a fully detailed construction manual and some accessories such as carbon fiber and the pull-pull control system. The model is not assembled or painted, so the customer needs to supply glue, paint, and other hobby tools, servos, motors, battery and electronics in order to put it together. Landing gear is not included but may be added easily (you’ll need a smooth landing surface and it won’t be able to land in grass.) Note: this model uses “pudding cups” as cowls!
