Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress is the famous bomber, which was used in the War II and demonstrated superb abilities. The EasySky B-17 re-creates this fighter with a sport scale outline, molded entirely of EPO foam and something typically not seen in micro models, making the B-17 quite durable with the smooth surface finish, which is much more realistic looking than other EPS foam micros on the market. And I believe, it can continue the legends.
EasySky B-17 is 540mm long with a 740mm wingspan. It has already integrated motor, servo and battery, and requires a DSM2 receiver that features integrated flight stabilization system. When using a 5+ channel transmitter, you can choose to turn the stabilization on or off while in flight according to actual flying needs. If using a simple 4 channel transmitter, the flight stabilization defaults to the On position.
Removable plug-in landing gear lets you choose between taking off from the ground, or simply hand launching the model. The battery hatch is quick and easy to access through the removable nose dome.
Flying the EasySky B-17 is a real enjoy. Even in breezier conditions, it handles quite well and without stabilization turned on. The light weight, and ample power on tap means you can fly at low throttle settings, getting long flight times. With differential thrust on the counter rotating propellers, smooth, scale turns and easy ground handling make this one sweet little mini plane.
