Can You Name That Plane?

Apr 16, 2014 38 Comments by

Powered by a Moki 250cc 5-cylinder radial gas engine with a 32×12 Biela 3-blade prop, this 1/4-scale model weighs in at 74 pounds and has a 115-inch wingspan. Can you identify this plane before you watch the video? Thanks to our friend across the pond, Tbobborap1 for taking and this video of this gorgeous warbird at an RC fly-in at the RAF Barkston Heath airfield and posting it on YouTube.
