Ok..my friends bomber (approx 36" wingspan) a year in the making.
Power by 4 electrics. First flight was short as the elevator did not have enough control..but he was able to land sucessfully.
Here are a couple of shots.

How cool is that!!! I love B-17s. I would also like to know what kit or ARF it is.

I do believe this is the plastic model..he converted..lots of work over the year.

That would be a first. A plastic model converted to RC. The link you provided points to a 25" wingspan die-cast (metal?) static model.

Kinda old thread, I know. But I have been away somewhat lately. My guess is that it's a Guillows kit. I am currently building one myself, and those are the exact markings in that kit.
