Hi Manfred, The short andwer is Yes it will. It won't have unlimted vertical if you know what I mean but it will fly the plane with scale-performance.

I like your flat paint. Shinny war birds just don't look right (are you reading this H9). What is the all up weight going to be? Will it be shipped with the retracts?

Hi: The all up weight is around 22 lbs (ish) with the retracts. Retracts are now optional but but for 349.95 you get Air up -Air-down retracts with oleo struts and also aluminum wheels with rubber tires. The retracts we are offering with this kit and alll new planes in 2008 are coming with all new generation of retracts. If you buy the airplanes with the retarcts at the time of the original aircraft purchase we offer a combo special. Please ask your LHS to bring one in for you or if there is none in your area we can ship you direct.

Hi Andrew,

GREAT looking Mitchell!

Another flying buddy, and I, are each planning to get one of these. We'll fly them alongside two Gen 1 KMP B-25's already owned by fellow club members! That four-plane squadron will sound pretty sweet going by! (four Saito 82's and four Saito 100's)

Thanks for the info about its weight, but in addition to that, it would be GREAT to know what the wing area is so we can compute wing loading.

If you have that number handy, please post it for us.

Keep up the terrific work!

Rip

That squadron plan sounds very cool. Hope to see some video of that in the future.

Latest pics on the new KMP B-25 (posted in the UK)!

Awesome flat, DARK green paint shows well in these recently released photos.

Wingspan is supposedly 96", instead of the estimated 95".

A flying buddy and I each have one on order, now. Deliveries hopefully by late April...

Just Braggin':

This picture of MY heavily modified "old" KMP-25 is the feature of the SNAPSHOT page (34) of this month's Fly RC magazine. By pure coincidence, I'm sure, right next to an ad for the new KMP-25.
