Road to Top Gun — Richard Feroldi — Ansaldo SVA-5

Road to Top Gun — Richard Feroldi — Ansaldo SVA-5

Our good friend and regular Top Gun and Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome attendee, Rich Feroldi is again heading to the Tog Gun event with his beautiful WW1 Italian 1/3-scale Ansaldo SVA-5. With a wingspan of 119 inches and a length of 106 inches, the 50 pound scratch built model is powered with a Quadra 100cc gas engine turning a Xoar 28×10 propeller.

Outfitted with the Futaba 9FG radio system, the impressive looking seldom modeled aircraft is outfitted as a bomber and reconnaissance plane. Originally intended as a fighter airplane with a 140mph airspeed, it was demoted to dropping surrender leaflets on Vienna, which also just happens to be one of the scale functions Rich incorporated into his impressive model.

Rich has flown several times at Top Gun and is a regular at Rhinebeck making the trip every year to NY state from his home in Florida.
