Imagine the exciting feeling of flying a big giant scale RC bomber at a warbird event. Now super size that feeling with a 1/3-scale, 270 inch span Mitchell B-25! That’s more than 22 feet and powered by a pair of big 400cc 5-cylinder radial gas engines.
This amazing RC monster took 6 years to build and is valued at 20,000 Euro. Flown with a pair of Messerschmitt Me 109s at the Weston Park Model Airshow the Mitchell was the stare of the show.
The American B-25 Mitchell is an American twin-engine, medium bomber manufactured by North American Aviation.It was named in honor of Major General William “Billy” Mitchell, a pioneer of U.S. military aviation.
Used by many Allied air forces, the B-25 served in every theater of World War II and after the war ended many remained in service, operating across four decades.
