The B-17 Flying Fortress was one of the most famous bombers of WW2, although it served in every theatre, it was the ETO in particular that this sturdy and well armed heavy bomber made its name, operating with the USAF 8th Bomber Group from UK airfields.
The Flying Fortress name came from its heavy defensive capability, the B-17 was bristling with defensive 0.50 caliber machine guns, and it won much affection from its crews due to its ability to soak up heavy battle damage and still get crews home.
Despite its size, this is a practical scale model, construction is from tough EPO, the pre-fitted retracts are electric and feature wide, chunky wheels that can handle any surface, flaps are included for ultra slow landings and the one piece wing makes transportation really easy. There is plenty of power from the pre-fitted brushless motors and good quality servos are pre-fitted for reliability and ease of build.
There are really cool features like the scale props & spinners and the replica guns but top of the list is the operating bomb bay door, complete with a set of bombs! Easy to fly, packed with features and practical, the only way you could improve a day cruising around the sky with this model is to have one of your flying buddies provide escort with a Hobbyking Mini P-51!
