Hi,
Good question,
Yes it does fly and very well, many times.
I do have a flying video of the prototype that was intended to be the second half of the video you saw.
when I get some time I would like to finish it.
There are about 5 of the production models being built as of today at several locations.
We will have a flying video soon of the production model.

I am an American here in Phoenix Arizona, I have an ARF factory in Wuhan China.
I lived at the factory for almost 2 years designing, making airplanes and training for quality.
I have been back since last July, boy it's good to be home!

Unpacking the Kit Box B-26

Double Box weight is: 23 pounds
Box size is: 38X24X15

Tonight I opened the box and took a few pictures along the way.
Parts are individually double wrapped and secured with tape inside the box.
Everything seams well thought out with it's placement to maximize the use of the space inside the box.
It looks like it will take a while to unwrap.
