LX Models big B-25

I just got back from the AMA show and stop by Banana Hobbys booth and he has this new big B-25 from LX Models. This is a full house model, Flaps, Lights, scale wheels and struts and scale doors. Plug in wing panels. Very nice looking model. Couldnt get anymore info as Pete was busy. Got a few pics. I think he said something like around 72-78in WS.

I love the trend of manufacturer's going to scale struts. Nice touch.

At the beginning of Pete's latest video, we can see the B-25.
Love the nav lights, scale wheels and overall scale looking

edit : looking at the pics of the first post, I guess the half wings seem to be removable from the motor pods. That would be cool for tansport.

Nice but if it's from LX I would be concerned about the retracts. Beautiful airframe. Also I wonder if they stuck 9 gram servos in it. LOL

if its a lx hobbyking may carry it. i think this because the 1875mm b-17 is a lx but its a mystery to me what scott gets his hands on.

Same paint scheme (Pacific Princess) but a whole different and much larger model. I'm guessing 80" span or better.

Edit : Ahh, "Apache Princess", thanks Beltpilot.

Looking for LX F4U flight videos in Youtube and you'll see only few. Other are ground video. As the folding wings should be the main problem on such plane, it seems that users cannot fly it due to major troubles with retracts and propeller ( broken on static run ).
That doesn't sounds good for this B-25 : two motors = problems² ?
