Dynam B-26 Marauder 1500mm (59") Wingspan - PNP - DY8972PNP
The Martin B-26 Marauder was one of the most successful Allied bombers of World War II. After a challenging introduction, the B-26 eventually became beloved for its exceptional durability and excellent medium bomber capabilities. Nicknamed the “Flying Torpedo”, the B-26 Marauder ended the war with the lowest combat loss rate of any American aircraft, bringing thousands of aviators safely home.
Dynam’s 1500mm wingspan B-26 Marauder brings the familiar scale outline of this iconic aircraft to the skies again! The aircraft is Dynam’s most ambitious warbird to date, introducing redesigned tricycle retracts for improved reliability and all new counter rotating propellers for scale appearance. To maximize convenient assembly and transport, the B-26’s outer wings can be detached from the engine nacelles, or the entire wing can be removed as one single piece. Major assembly of the aircraft is completed with only ten screws! For a large aircraft its size, the Dynam B-26 can be made very portable to fit in a small car’s trunk in under three minutes.
The aircraft is optimized for a 4s 4000 battery for extended flight time and a good balance of thrust, wing loading, and flight duration. A large battery hatch provides plenty of space for a receiver or optional gyro. Flaps shorten takeoffs and reduce landing speeds, and the tall rudder has excellent authority. Power is provided by two Detrum 3512-650kV brushless motors for satisfying sport scale performance. The two Skylord 40A ESCs are mounted behind each motor for ideal cooling and the counter-rotating 10.5x8 propellers enhance the scale fidelity of the aircraft. Providing capable handling on short grass runways, in addition to the redesigned retracts the Dynam B-26 Marauder also features steel wire struts and soft scale sized foam rubber tires.
Model aircraft from Dynam make excellent cost effective platforms for personalization and detailing, and this B-26 continues that tradition. The canopy and nose covers are easily removed for detailing inside by ambitious modelers. There is even space in the belly if pilots want to add their own bomb bay door. We are also proud to partner with www.Callie-Graphics.com for a wide lineup of optional decal sets to help customize your Dynam B-26 with several other liveries representing aircraft from both the Pacific and European theaters of World War II. With Dynam and your imagination, the sky isn’t the limit, it’s just the beginning!

I got the elevator servoe installed yesterday. It works great! Now the issue is the deflection. It's uneven. I looked at the pushrod and saw what appears to be a wheel collar holding the 2 rods together. I'm going to resurgury the model and hopefully tighten the joint. We shall see.
Worst kid ever
just be 26 is the worst kid I've ever bought from Ocean I would recommend that they send me another one but I would not even want it I'd rather have the any two twin 70 mm version 2 would make me happy. I bought and several airplanes from this company denim and thousands of dollars. I would not recommend this airplane to anybody. Very under-powered couldn't even get it off the ground until I put two blade props on it and bigger esc's and then barely got off the ground. Flies very poorly very unresponsive all connections and servos for the cheapest things you could buy. it is now in the trash after my third flight what do you say Dedham how about that me-262 I bought one from you and it's great but I would like to version 2
Post surgery report.
I kinda did it. I replaced my faulty servoe on the elevator. It worked a whole 5 minutes. The nylon gears again stripped. I discovered that they stripped when down elevator is applied. I ordered new metal gear servoes for it and they will supposedly be here Wednesday. We shall see. I hope the metal gears don't strip. I'll keep you posted.
Here's my pseudo review
I took my 26 out today. It was a joy to build. I get it to the field and the elevator servoe strips during preflight. That ment NO-FLY until I replace it. It just needs 1/2 day of major surgery to get to the servoe. Ohh well, it will keep me busy.
Easy, fun, and worth it.
I will begin by saying that this plane was a blast. It went together fairly easy and is a beautiful aircraft. Of course it had its issues, but not as bad or as many as others have described. She looks good, and will hopefully be a joy in the air. More to come.
Dynam B-26 Marauder Review
Build was slightly difficult because some parts do not align well, canopy, middle wing cover, and middle wing section. I had to trim canopy and middle wing section for proper fit onto fuselage. I had to move magnets to get middle wing cover to sit flush. Flying on 4 blade propellers was quite unstable, so I cut off 2 blades and plane flies perfectly stable now. Water decals are terrible and eventually peel off in pieces. I would not recommend plane for beginner. Need to be an experienced builder to fix and/or adjust quirks. Overall a good plane, not a great plane. It is a good looking model though.
This model is a waste of money. Someone is doing quite well in this company. Model trashed definately not because of lack of experience 40 years.

I did not buy this airplane from MOTION RC but I had nothing but problems with mine. #1 wing panels does not line up right, Retracts stop working while I was putting the airplane together, There is damage to the entire airplane from shipping and water stickers are just junk. And tons other problems that I just do not have the time to write about. I have 4 DYNAM airplanes and WILL NEVER EVER PURCHASE AN OTHER DYNAM AGAIN. Motion RC would you please stop selling DYNAM products??
Looked decent, retracts will not deploy.
I was very excited to fly this plane. I got the last open box at a good price, so even if it needed a little work I was ok with that. Went together quickly, with no real issues, and everything was well laid out with plenty of room for the receiver and battery, and for tucking wires away. Unfortunately after complete assembly I found the retracts are locked in the gear up position. I removed them from the plane and get no response even with another receiver and plugging and unplugging. I can hear the motors binding in the servo, so I know theres power going to it. Im hoping Motion or Dynam can make this better, otherwise I just bought a $220 foam paperweight since you cant really belly land these planes. I dont want to have to pay for a set of landing gears on a supposedly "new" plane.
