Conceived in the mid-1930s by Boeing Aircraft Company, the B-17 aircraft not only demonstrated capabilities beyond expectations over Europe, around the globe it went on to deliver military service well into the 1960s. She was dubbed the “Flying Fortress” for her incredible defensive firepower and is credited with downing 23 enemy aircraft per 1,000 raids that devastated European targets in daylight raids with 640,036 tons of bombs. Now known as the most famous bomber of WWII, heroic crew members loved the B-17 for her ability to withstand extensive combat damage and still return home safely.
The E-flite® UMX™ B-17G Flying Fortress model is an ultra micro marvel. Not only is it the first ultra micro RC model of the famous WWII bomber, it includes innovative AS3X™ technology that makes flying more fun. Built into the Spektrum™ DSMX® receiver, AS3X technology has been specially tuned to combat the effects of wind and turbulence so you get the kind of locked-in handling that’s comparable to an expertly tuned airplane that’s much larger. With four motors, three-blade propellers and full four-channel control plus an abundant amount of scale detail, it’s a replica you can fly almost anywhere.
