E-flite UMX B-25 Mitchell Unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Review
E-flite UMX B-25 Mitchell Unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Review

Default E-flite UMX B-25 Mitchell Unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Review

This is what I have to say about the new E-flite UMX B-25 Mitchell BNF Basic RC Plane WWII Bomber.

Pros
- It looks really good
- Faster than I expected for a 1S plane
- Landing gear stays on in the box
- Semi symmetrical airfoil
- Reinforced wing and control surfaces

Cons
- Pre-order issues
- Landing gear held up fine on the rough landing but I may upgrade the gear anyway
- Elevator asymmetry and too much upflection out of the box
- Slightly tail heavy out of the box

Very nice. Have considered one of these as I have the B-17 and like it pretty well.

Great take-off, nice rise of off ground, not the usual jump to a high alpha position.

My friend just got this on Friday but was hesitant to maiden it in the wind.

Great look and performance for a fair price.
