The steerable nose and worm drive retracts to make landing easy. Besides, the plane’s large servo command system, control horns, and ducted fans are pre-installed so that assembly and use is simple and fast.
Other key features of this RC plane include stiff wings, LED navigation lights, large hatch for the battery and receiver section, and steerable nose wheels.
The freewing B-17 Flying Fortress
This RC plane has stunned many people because of its sheer size that does not compromise its speed and maneuverability.
The attention to this RC also attracts attention because of the special landing system that calms its speed to a safe and enjoyable landing. It has large split flaps that help with short take off and smooth landing.
Landing is also assisted by servoless worm drive that absorbs shock and avoids damage when landing. It also features four 1350 motors that help to drive the 3 giant blade propellers. The plane has a length of 1170 millimeters with a flying weight of 2350 grams.
