In 1942, sixteen fresh B-25 aircraft and 80 eager crew members carried out one of the most daring missions of World War II: the Doolittle Raid. It was a massive effort including months of training, and the coordination of both the Army and Navy, all in complete secrecy against virtually impossible odds. The result of their commitment and triumph rewarded a nation with an incalculable level of inspiration.
The E-flite® UMX™ B-25 Mitchell is an ultra micro tribute to their heroic spirit in a model that can be flown just about anywhere. Its realistic outline boasts the muscular appearance of twin radial engines that turn three-blade propellers while critical details such as simulated gun positions and an authentic color scheme mark this model as a fitting tribute to the Doolittle Raiders. You can make your UMX B-25 even more special with the provided decals that allow you to replicate the markings of any Doolittle Raider. Proportional four-channel control includes the twin-rudders on the distinctive H-tail. The nose gear is steerable for outstanding ground handling. You can unplug all the wheels and simulate flight with the landing gear retracted. But no matter how you fly, innovative AS3X® technology makes this warbird perform as if you're at the controls of a giant scale machine that's been expertly tuned.Advanced AS3X® Technology
The AS3X system built into the Spektrum™ 6-channel ultra micro receiver is what helps give the E-flite® UMX™ B-25 Mitchell an incredibly smooth feel in the air.
