Here's photos of the 1875mm B-17 "Liberty Belle" which has been on the market for a few years now. The model comes as either the Memphis Bell or Liberty Belle. Though referred as the "Hobby King" 1875mm B-17, it's carried by several other distributors.

This is a wonderful flying model and excellent value for the money. They range in price from $250 to $330, depending who you purchase it from and if it's on sale. We have many pilots flying them in the Apollo B-17 Squadron and they absolutely love them. Our Squadron CO has more than 1300 flights on his aircraft and it has suffered several serious crashes and still flies today!

I'm flying mine on two 3S 3000mah batteries with flight times running between 7-9 minutes. The CG was right on the money with these batteries. The props from the FMS B-25. I repainted the top of the engine nacelles, detailed the engines, landing gear, wheels, exhaust, turbochargers, bombardier's seat and repainted the yellow markings.

Pick one up and start your own Squadron or join us in SoCal.
