Thanks for the info. Question: Would a sponsor, or scale flyer, be able to have him construct a plane of this caliber, with ability to fly, then enter in Tiano's big shoot out ? Wouldn't this put someone in the winners circle ?

Not an airplane http://www.craftsmanshipmuseum.com/Scerri.htm He made everything and it works just like the real thing. I think in the 90's he was offered $1M for it.

All this needs is RC gear. http://www.flickr.com/photos/1579423...th/5815486799/ This is what you get if you follow the Replicraft plans exclusively.

"a plane of this caliber, with ability to fly,"

A contradiction in terms. By the time you got that level of detail in, the plane would be WAY too heavy to fly with the power plants that would fit.

What is great about WWI RC models is that you COULD potentially have this level of scale accuracy and still have a flying model.

Abu.

Yes, in WWI, but not in WWII, "heavy metal" as they were called, for a reason.

You guys are right. Lets see, the glide ratio of a P-51, vs. an SE-5. Each at altitude of 5K'. If the P-51's engine quit at 400+ mph, and the SE-5's quit at 90 mph, I would think they would both travel the same distance, to the ground. Only the silver one would get there first and fastest.

I wonder what the percentage of full scale WW2 would need to be to make a VERY stock build work.. I think 1/2 scale planes could be built that way possibly, as long as all possible weight saving techniques were used.

it would be a thing of beauty to see....

I still get chills being close to a full scale at an air show ! A half scale in the SHED would keep me awake at night thinking of it ! hahahah

But ultimately these are all static scale models. What's the most amazingly scale (inside and out) flying RC model you've ever seen?

Vitaly Robertus' Yak-130 is beyond eye watering.

I certainly agree with the "outside" part! But it's going going to take some impressive internals (folding wings, actual riveting on wing interiors, etc.) to impressive me with a jet according to the "inside and out" criteria.
