E-flite UMX B-17G Flying Fortress BNF

Not only is it the first ultra micro RC model of the famous WWII bomber, it includes innovative AS3X® technology that makes flying an advanced airplane in small spaces more fun. Built into the Spektrum™ DSMX® receiver, AS3X stabilization has been specially tuned to combat the effects of wind and turbulence so you get the kind of locked-in handling that’s comparable tan expertly tuned airplane that’s much larger.
