This monster B-17 is the handiwork of Peter Pfeffer of Austria and just completed its first flight. The 19-foot-span bomber is powered by four Armin DeVries 42cc gas 4-strokes and controlled by a Weatronic radio. It weighs in at 187 pounds. Our thanks to RCScaleAirplanes for posting this impressive video on YouTube. For photos of the build, check out Peter’s Flicker account here. He notes that he still needs to add nose art and scale details before this bird is ready for the summer show circuit; we can’t wait to see it all dressed up!
