Amazing first flight: 20-foot-span B-25!

Just when you think you’ve seen a really giant, giant-scale plane, here comes a 1/3.3-scale B-25 Mitchell! Weighing in at 326 pounds, with a wingspan of 20 feet, this behemoth is powered by two 400cc Moki 5-cylinder radials and 35×13 carbon-fiber propellers. The big bomber has wood construction with fiberglass reinforcements and uses handmade retracts and 30 servos. Three Emcotec Power Cube SBus units, each with two Futaba R 7003 receivers and two 5300mAh batteries, means that no cable connections are needed between the fuselage and the wings. It is the handiwork of Roland Sabatschus, Michael Sabatschus and Daniel Sabatschus, who spent 5 years designing and building it. Congratulations, gentlemen, and our thanks to Rcgiantscaleairplanes for posting this unforgettable video to YouTube!
