B-17 Flying Fortress 740mm RTF Warbird Airplane by EasySky Enterprise w/2.4GHz Radio
This product was added to our catalog on April 16, 2015.
This is the EasySky B-17 Flying Fortress 740mm RTF Warbird Airplane. Designed in the early 1930s, the B-17 developed a reputation for being a potent, high-flying, long-range bomber that was extremely effective at surviving battle damage. Unfortunately, throughout the many years past, of the over 12,000 B-17s made from 1936 through 1945, only around a dozen remain airworthy today. Luckily, EasySky presents this model R/C B-17 Flying Fortress to be enjoyed by fans, enthusiasts, and everyone in between.
Featuring an EPO design with an easy to fly on/off 3-Axis gyro, this fully assembled* realistic warbird is ready to fly out of the box, including all required items but the AA batteries for the 4-channel 2.4GHz transmitter. Simply unbox, charge the included 500mAh micro LiPo battery and go enjoy your own B-17 experience.

I can confirm that this plane and the other EasySky models are DSM2 compatible. I was able to bind my Spectrum DX9 with no problems. Also a bunch of friends all bought this plane and we are having a blast with it. There is a thread on RCGroups all about it. There are batteries as large as 1600mAh that will fit without mods. Lots of flight time.
I highly recommend this model. It's one of my favorites.)
I say this is a must own. You can easily get a lot of flights with this model and grow with it. Get it, get it!!)
