FlightLine RC B-24 Liberator Olive Drab 2000mm (78") Wingspan - PNP - FLW401P

The famed B-24 Liberator is one of the most recognizable WWII aircraft of all time.  Serving in every theater of that global conflict, the B-24 fought to bring its brave crews home through unimaginable danger.  With humility and reverence, Motion RC is proud to introduce the world’s first foam electric PNP B-24 Liberator, in remembrance of the crews who gave the ultimate sacrifice and those who carry on its memory.  The FlightLine RC B-24 Liberator is approximately 1/16.7 scale, with a 2000mm wingspan and 1230mm length, and is constructed from EPO foam and reinforced with integrated aluminum, carbon fiber, plywood, and plastic structures.  Designed with input from the Collings Foundation, which operates the only flying B-24-J, “Witchcraft”, our flying electric RC model delivers the ultimate experience for pilots seeking a worthy homage to the historic Liberator.

Due to the many configurations of the real B-24, the model features modular design to allow each modeler to customize his/her model further.  A magnetic nose section allows owners to quickly swap between B-24 variants, the -D (“Greenhouse” nose), and the -J (“Emerson turret” nose), and the Upper Turret on both variants and the Nose Turret on the -J variant can be panned with an optional 9g servo.  Steerable tillers are pre-installed, including special provisions to fit FPV cameras in the nose with minimal modification.  Waist gunner windows are left uninstalled, giving pilots the option to detail the interior and/or depict a variant with or without the windows installed.  An internal wooden spine reinforces the bomb bay area, if a modeler chooses to install operating doors.  An all new pilot figure sculpt depicts period accurate A-2 crew jacket, radio headset, and iconic “crusher” cap and insignia.  Also for the first time at Motion RC, an optional 3D-Printed Cockpit with complete instrument panel, controls, and seats is also available as a separately purchasable upgrade.  This B-24 is the perfect platform for customization and personalization!

Despite its very large size, primary assembly of the entire aircraft is completed with only 12 screws; glue is only required for cosmetic details such as antennas and windows.  A quick disconnect ribbon wire harness consolidates wiring into a central circuit board inside the fuselage.  Each wing is removable with two screws, making this large aircraft extremely easy to transport in the front passenger seat of a standard sized car.

The FlightLine RC B-24 uses four 3530-860kv brushless outrunner motors, 30A ESCs, counter-rotating propellers, and a separate 5A UBEC.  The recommended pair of 4s 14.8v 3000-4000mAh lipo batteries, common with most of the other FlightLine RC aircraft series, can power the aircraft in excess of 110kph/70mph, for 5-10 minutes based on a pilot’s throttle management.  We prefer mid-throttle cruising for 7+ minutes of scale-style flying, appropriate for a bomber of this size.  The outboard motor pair and inboard motor pair are powered by separate flight batteries, allowing for powered landings in the event of one battery losing a cell.  A 70mm tall nose wheel and 85mm tall main wheels provide stable operation on grass runways, with split flaps aiding controlled low speed flight and landing approaches.

Available in both green and silver paint schemes, each model includes both the -D and -J nose in the box, and includes two decal sets comprising both waterslide and matte vinyl decals.  Additional decal sets are available for purchase from our partner, Callie Graphics, at www.callie-graphics.com.  A main strut suspension strut is available as an upgrade for rough runways, and a nose door upgrade is also available, although only recommended for paved runways due to the B-24’s characteristically low ground clearance.

With near endless personalization possibilities, the pinnacle of your warbird hangar has arrived -- The FlightLine RC 2000mm B-24 Liberator!
