19-foot RC Caproni Bomber

19-foot RC Caproni Bomber

The hit of the Dayton 2018 WW I Dawn Patrol Rendezvous was the amazing RC 1/4-scale Italian Caproni Bomber built and flown by Greg Hahn of New Castle Indiana. The recent WWI Dawn Patrol Rendezvous drew dozens of impressive giant scale WW I aircraft both full size and RC, and the star of the radio control show was the Caproni.

Designed and scratch built by Greg over a two year period, his model was inspired by the full-size aircraft on display at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force just across the field at Wright Patterson AFB where the event was held. With a wingspan of over 220 inches, Greg’s gigantic biplane bomber is powered by three gasoline engines. Video by Ken LaRock in NMUSAF Public Affairs-Public Domain

  1. More aircrews were lost in training for the Caproni than in combat!

  2. Would not want to be the rear gunner! GREAT JOB on it, Love the inflight shots.

  3. Two or three engines? I only see two….
