Mike Booth scratch-built this 1/3.2-scale Russian Yak-3 and notes that the 59.5-pound warbird uses a “mix of traditional materials and composite parts, i.e, cowling and canopy, carbon fiber fuselage doublers and a +/- 12G main spar joiner for the two piece wing.” The Yak is powered by a 3W 150cc inline twin motor spinning a 10-inch propeller. He adds, “She’s on rails and after ten years of flying my Spitfires I’m feeling that the full-size Yak could probably outmaneuver a MK9.” Thanks to Pete and Dean Coxon for taking this great video and sharing it with us.
