SALE INTO SUMMER WITH FLIGHTLINE!*Sale will run while supplies last.
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 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”.
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. 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.
If you have your own 3D printer, or have access to one, you can download the STL files directly at this link. (There are 20 total STL files, formatted for 3D printing included in this .ZIP file). We now offer STL files for the nose gear doors. For the left gear door STL file click here. For the right gear door STL file click here.
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.
The FlightLine B-24 uses four 3530-860kv brushless outrunner motors, 30A ESCs, 9.5 x 7 counter-rotating propellers, and a separate 5A UBEC. The recommended pair of 4s 14.8v 3000-4000mAh lipo batteries 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. 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 and split flaps aid in low speed flight and landings.
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 suspension strut is available as an upgrade for rough runways. With near endless personalization possibilities, the pinnacle of your warbird hangar has arrived -- The FlightLine 2000mm B-24 Liberator!

I ordered this airplane, it was well packaged (with one exception) and arrived quickly. There are many scale features, panel lines, antennas, gun barrels, which make this a very real looking model. I am very impressed with the fit and finish, the ease of assembly and the identification decals. The only exception to perfect packaging being the left rudder was jammed into it’s plastic bag in a way that bent it into a curve. I ordered the optional shock absorbing main gear struts which installed easily. The wiring control board makes breakdown and assembly simple and quick. Gently advancing the throttle brings the craft to takeoff speed smoothly and the plane lifts nicely with or without flaps. The bent rudder does not seem to affect the flight, but I will get with Motion RC about replacement for proper looks. The only problem that I have had is landing the plane without breaking a prop (3 flights- 4 broken props). With flaps it rolls left as the craft settles into ground plane, bouncing on left gear and breaking the right outboard prop. Landing without flaps it settles down hard, breaking both outer props. So have ordered extra props till I get this right. Flying with 2 4S 4000mah admiral batteries and by using the J series front nose the plane balanced properly with no added weight. All in all, very pleased with this model. Flys great and is very realistic and scale looking in the air.
I have taken months to put together some of the bigger composite and balsa planes I got this for ease and looks. Very easy set up and flys great. One suggestion is to start with a neutral elevator with takeoff flaps first and then trim in what you need. This plane is a little pitchy on fast throttle so don't over do it. Great plane though.

One of the best planes I have worked on yet! I made ( male call) Jimmy stewart's B 24 Am trying to get the nose gear doors on . I am going to use a P 38 gear door. I have an extra boom . battle damage *** zero cobbed his engine into my 38. Really a very nice airplane . nose guns top turret move with the flaps.
This model turned out to be better than I had hoped although I have yet to assemble and fly it because an important objective was to finish it as a B-24 my uncle served in as waist gunner on 1 Aug 1943, the famous Ploesti oil fields raid. This is made difficult because parts of the model have been painted with 1944 schemes aka "Witchcraft" so I have to find out how to over-paint the red and white vertical stab and engine cowls back to the olive drab matching the remainder of the plane.
The plane flys very well on the recommended CG and batteries. On half throttle which is a nice comfortable speed I fly easily 7 minutes. Only be aware the rear belly is very close to the ground so if you over rotate on takeoff or more likely you bounce on landing the rear belly will hit.
Really nice model, only gripe is that Motion Rc is very expensive compared to other outlets.
Very nice from the start, well laid out, flys great, and nice on the eye! Tha battery harness is a great bright spot that is pretty fool proof! If not totally so! The only two weak points were, one rudder assembly’s seemed less than totally secured with only the screws, but a bit of epoxy and it was. #2 was the olive drab tape on the bottom of the wings was curled up beyond use. Both small issues and overall a I have to give it 4.998 out of 5 stars! Nicely done! Steve

Excellent, This Bomber completes my WWII Bomber collection.
Love this plane, I have both and Callie naturally helped me with some custom graphics. Installed the 3D cockpit, new pilots, nose & top turret gunners and servos for each. Grabs a lot of attention from the crowd.
