FMS 1470mm (58") B-25 Mitchell Twin Engine Bomber Green - Receiver Ready (PNP) - FMS025GREEN

The North American B-25 Mitchell was an American twin-engined medium bomber manufactured by North American Aviation. It was used by many Allied air forces, in every theater of World War II, as well as many other air forces after the war ended, and saw service across four decades.

The B-25 was a safe and forgiving aircraft to fly. With an engine out, 60° banking turns into the dead engine were possible, and control could be easily maintained down to 145 mph (230 km/h). However, the pilot had to remember to maintain engine-out directional control at low speeds after takeoff with rudder; if this maneuver was attempted with ailerons, the aircraft would snap out of control. The tricycle landing gear made for excellent visibility while taxiing. The only significant complaint about the B-25 was the extremely high noise level produced by its engines; as a result, many pilots eventually suffered from varying degrees of hearing loss.

The high noise level was due to design and space restrictions in the engine cowlings which resulted in the exhaust "stacks" protruding directly from the cowling ring and partly covered by a small triangular fairing. This arrangement directed exhaust and noise directly at the pilot and crew compartments. Crew members and operators on the airshow circuit frequently comment that "the B-25 is the fastest way to turn aviation fuel directly into noise". Many B-25s now in civilian ownership have been modified with exhaust rings that direct the exhaust through the outboard bottom section of the cowling.

The Mitchell was an exceptionally sturdy aircraft that could withstand tremendous punishment. One well-known B-25C of the 321st Bomb Group was nicknamed "Patches" because its crew chief painted all the aircraft's flak hole patches with high-visibility zinc chromate primer. By the end of the war, this aircraft had completed over 300 missions, was belly-landed six times and sported over 400 patched holes. The airframe was so bent askew that straight-and-level flight required 8° of left aileron trim and 6° of right rudder, causing the aircraft to "crab" sideways across the sky.

The B-25 was named in honor of General Billy Mitchell, a pioneer of U.S. military aviation. By the end of its production, nearly 10,000 B-25s in numerous models had been built. One of the most iconic warbirds of World War II.

The FMS 1470mm B-25 is a true jewel to fly and with detachable main wings even easy to transport!  Take to the skies like one of Doolittle's Raiders!

  1. Motion is great to deal with

    Posted by Steve Elkins Kokomo Indiana on 17th Jul 2014

    I have bought several jets and prop planes from motion and I could not be happyer. That A6 Intruder is a great plane. I received it in 2 days and it fly's great. Thanks motion for great service. Steve


  2. B-25 Maiden

    Posted by Steve B. on 22nd May 2014

    I enjoyed my J-Power P-38 so much I wanted a second multi-engine plane so I chose the B-25 Mitchell. Build was fairly easy. Biggest task was stringing the wires into the fuselage so the mess wasn't quite a mess. This took a little while but I was able to keep all wires sorted. The engine hook-ups were the most difficult since they were the bulkiest. Was able to tuck receiver and all behind the cockpit.

    Took it to the airfield, got everything ready and taxied out. Got it up and trimmed out and it flew great. It flies faster than my P-38. Don't care if it will loop or roll, this one I just flew scale and it looked like the real thing. High speed, low passes were killer. Landing was a gentle floater. Very happy with this plane. Looking forward to a fun summer with it.


  3. Awesome Looks, Easy Build

    Posted by Byron E. on 21st Feb 2014

    Been wanting a B-25 for a while and the FMS "Tondelayo" met all of my expectations. This is a great looking plane, with tons of detail. The build is fairly simple, though the instructions are not that great, Wings are a little difficult to fully seat. The screws to secure the wings are built into the wing...the manual is not clear on this. No major issues at all though.

    Motion RC has the best service I have encountered ordering on-line. My B-25 came with a badly distorted prop. I sent an e-mail to Motion RC to let them know and they sent a replacement out the next day. I am completely satisfied with their service and will be ordering from them again!


  4. Great aiplanes model real scale

    Posted by Joe Gagliardi on 5th Jan 2014

    I was greatly surprised when received the B25, it was packed well no damage and everything look good. The plane went together so easily I thought I was missing a few steps. The instruction booklet was not much help but I had no trouble putting it together with a little help from Motion. Keep those Warbirds coming, I love them all.


  5. It looks like history in the air.

    Posted by Travis on 31st Dec 2013

    Nice plane , easy build, only 2 control horns to screw on the plane. However the servo wires were very short, Not an impossibility just short. (recommend extensions for less fighting) Easy take off from a paved runway. (not sure with grass, only less then an inch clearance from ground to prop, and the wheels are not that big) Looks very big in the air and flies great at half stick. I was very concerned that the recommended 3S batteries were not really going to be sufficient but I get about 6 mins , so its fine. Nice plane, looks great in the sky. go get one.


  6. MotionRC

    Posted by Ron Gray on 3rd Dec 2013

    That's what I like about MotionRC. Look at my last review and see the response.
    There is NO other RC shop on the web that cares about customer service like MotionRC.
    I am SO glad I found this place.
    It's places like MotionRC that makes the hobby as fun as it can be.
    Thank you


  7. Hard landings on a grass field

    Posted by Ron on 2nd Dec 2013

    This is a great looking plane.
    The landing gear is a bit unforgiving. The first few flights went great.
    The next one had a hard landing and broke the front strut. While on the bench, one of the main servos for the door started smoking. That was the end of all 3 doors working.
    I do like this one but I wish it had shock absorbing gear like the B-17. It would help a lot.
    This one is very hard to repair the gear and doors.

    Edit from Motion RC: gear door servos are located under the retracts. You must remove the 4 screws holding the retract in place. This allows easy access for servo replacement. This sounds like a bad sequencer fried all the servos. Please contact us for replacement.


  8. B-25 Mitchell

    Posted by Brent Vannes on 16th Sep 2013

    Had minor damage at the rear of the starboard engine nacelle and the cockpit needs foam removed to use some batteries. I had some difficulties getting the steering adjusted and broke the clevis and ended up having to completely disassemble the front landing gear assembly to fix it. I have not flown it yet but other than the minor inconveniences I mentioned it is a fine looking plane. I cannot wait to fly it!


  9. Nice Warbird

    Posted by Brian b on 14th Sep 2013

    Took my time to get her together, easy enough might have spent 2-3 hours. I bought a PNP version. A few leads, especially the motor esc to battery leads could have been longer. Her maiden today was sweet a little trim work and a grease landing. Couldn't have been better. FMS makes a quality product and MotionRC delivers.

    Posted by Ronald Dameron on 12th Sep 2013

    Received the plane in 3 days from ordering. That was great. The assembly took just a few hours and only complaint was the servo clevis. (weak). Replaced them which was minor. Took her to the field and she was beautiful. Grass field and the plane had no issues but to fly. And looking GOOD on flybys. First plane from MotionRC or FMS but there will be more. Tks Oh yea, THE PRICE IS RIGHT!!!!!!!!


  11. Very Nice B-25

    Posted by Lloyd Socky on 5th Sep 2013

    I have completed construction. I have to give my strongest recommendation for others who might be interested in a B-25. Generally, I have been impressed with the overall quality of all the FMS ARFs I have purchased.


  12. My Hot Looking B-25

    Posted by myvety2k@aol.com on 19th Jul 2013

    I received my B-25 with no broken items in the box. I had a problem with one of the servo's that worked one of the landing doors. I contacted MotionRC that night by email and that next morning thay sent me and email telling me that they were very sorry this happened and that they would send a new one out ASAP. They did and I received it right away. Now that's service. To bad all of the companys out their that sell planes would do the same.


  13. Great plane

    Posted by Gilman Hawxhurst on 13th Jun 2013

    As a beginner to RC I found this model fun and easy to assemble. Some of the leads could be a little longer, but thats minor
