I got the FMS B25 in 'kit' form. I had to add my own power system and electronics. I eliminated the gear doors and saved three servos in the process. I read that there were issues with the wing joining/locking. So, I cut the carbon fiber rods and glued them into the wings and used aluminium tubes for wing joiners that slide over the carbon fiber tubes.

I decided on a Canadian scheme, 'City of Edmonton' so I had to remove all the guns and turrets.

Re: B25

Nice job! That is the first B-25 model I've seen in the RCAF scheme. A flock of them operated out of Stn Winnipeg training RIOs back in the day. Quite a sight and sound when the details launched.

Re: B25

This is the 57in ws. The motors are from HK and use 10x7 props drawing 20amps each.
I moded the wing joiners by cuting them in two and glueing the carbon fiber rods into the wings. I then use aluminuim tubes that slide over the carbon rods in the fuse. This is more secure than the orignal method.
I also added a hatch in the belly for access to all the wires and receiver.

I found four paint schemes for Canadian B25s. There is another 'City of Edmonton' scheme on display in Alberta. The other one I considered was a black and yellow scheme training scheme.
