The B-17 Flying Fortress remains one of the most famous allied bombers of WW2.  Although it served in every theatre of the war, it was in the European Theatre of Operations (ETO) with the renowned 8th Air Force in particular, that this sturdy and well-armed heavy bomber flew its way into the history books.

Building on the success of our original HobbyKing "Memphis Belle" model we have redesigned this huge 1875mm wingspan warbird and now bring to you the best flying and best-looking rendition of this iconic heavy bomber available anywhere in this size. 

Our fantastic model is simple and fast to assemble right out of the box with all of the servos and ESCs pre-installed.  It is made from EPO foam, so it's as tough as you would expect and as the one-piece wing is removable, it is also very practical to transport.

The pre-fitted electric scale wheels retract forward like the real aircraft and are large enough to tackle almost any surface.  There is also plenty of power on tap from the four upgraded 850kv brushless motors. Counter-rotating props make zero torque, smooth take off's, the order of the day and with pre-fitted split flaps, landings are also stress-free.

But it's the attention to detail on this version that is impressive.  Panel lines have been reduced and two new accurate scale color schemes are now available.  Olive drab/grey and overall silver. These two schemes represent the vast majority of B-17's that went into action and as an additional feature, we've also included a choice of two 8th Air Force decal sets for each color scheme as well as an optional chin turret so that you can create either an early "F" or later "G" variant. 

As a Flying Fortress, our model also bristles with guns, with top and ball turrets as well as tail, nose, and waist gun positions.  Dummy Wright Cyclone engines are finished with three-blade counter-rotating scale props and hubs and finally, working navigation & landing lights add to the overall realism level of this impressive model.

Beneath the surface, our B-17 has been beefed up with additional wing bracing and of course, she has been test flown extensively and it's in the air that this model really comes into its own.

You will be struck at how easy it is to fly, almost like a powered glider at times and even though it's more than capable of performing non-scale aerobatics including loops and rolls, it is at slower speeds that it looks every bit the heavy bomber.

With its impressive wingspan, low passes translate into a real presence in the air and the sound of those four props driving it forward just adds to the experience.

Our B-17 is a scale pilot's dream model. It's a big airplane that looks great, flies beautifully, and definitely has the "wow" factor that will have heads turning wherever and whenever you fly it.

Great buy

Jan 20, 2023

The plane looks fantastic in the air. Building it is tricky if you don’t follow the right steps. I only have two “but” the center of gravity is not well explained. And it does take time to reassemble after transport. Too many wires, it would be great if there was a single plug. Other than that it’s a fabulous looking bird.

CG is Wrong!

Jan 09, 2023

The recommended CG is show on the top view in the manual as being at the back of the outer engine nacelles. That would be at 138 -145mm. But the figures shown there and on the website are 38-45. The model flies nose-heavy even at 140mm. (Lots of up trim to fly level and as it slows down to land it takes more and more up elevator to keep the nose from dropping.) I had to add 3 ounces of lead to the tail to get the B-17 to fly normally. This error needs to be corrected!

The airplane is a great design and construction, but attention to detail assembling is lacking. I had missing parts that should have been assembled. Also no instruction manual included and very poor english translations throughout it. Someone fluent in english should re write the manual. No instruction where to plug channel 7 into the 6 channel transmitter.

Great B17

Mar 27, 2022

Nice detail, placed receiver on center wing with wires. Flys easy and stable. Only need to put wing and fuselage together with 2 bolts and connect 2 servos. Flies great. Plenty of power with two 2200ma batteries

Could have been better

Mar 09, 2022

This plane was a pain to build, and a motor broke after the second flight, almost destroying the entire thing, but I was able to do an emergency landing. Their support was horrible and didn't do a thing, just sent an automated message. This plane could have been much better in pretty much every sector, but didn't achieve anything apart from the looks of it. I would never buy from Hobbyking again.

B17 F/Gb

Jun 19, 2021

over all is good purchase, for the scale buff it falls a little short, there is little to no addon parts to bring this fine model to a more scale look for a B17G the gun turrets the upper turret was way wrong and not even round in shape. I replaced it with a upper turret from the new RC B24 Foam model. the lower turret is good but not to correct size.(too small in size) the nose cheek windows no longer available as the spare part kit for the Flight-line B17 kit is no longer in production production also there no replacement parts for the tail gun position to proper correct to late model B17G
