looks good. i wonder if the main gear retracts go into the nacelles or fold sideways into the wing.

It looks to me like the retracts swing forward into the nacelle, not really scale, but still a nice looking plane none the less.

Agreed! I'd buy it now if I had the skill not to crash it on the first flight (and if I could justify the cost).

Here is another place.

One of my flying buds bought one before they were available, as pre-order. It came with free retract system with the pre-order.

I must say, it looked sooo nice sitting in his living room, even though it was only just a shell.

What I don't get are the wheels

An easy replacement though. If I had the room I'd be picking one of these up. Now we need vids!

Edit: NM, just saw the video on PW-RC. WOW! It sounds like a baby B-17 should sound, A very scale drone to the engines when they get spooled up. I'm thinking I'm gonna MAKE room for one of these babys...
