Default Esm skyraider

Successful maiden flight of my ESM Skyraider today

Assembled from the kit but with extensive mods to the control linkages.
I bought it s/h NIB and was also given the air retracts for it but I scrapped those, they were simply not worth any discussion, or use in flight for that matter.
Substituted for fixed gear with shock absorbing struts, for a scale look and trouble free flights. Also modified the gear mounts from the kit (this also resulted in significantly lower weight vs. using the retracts).

Powered with a Chinese 1.20 four stroke with APC 15-8, the model flies extremely well, as relaxed and predictable as a low wing trainer!

Flaps-down low pass


Easy engine installation


A different look from the popular P-51/47 models
