Giant RC Aichi Takes Flight

Giant RC Aichi Takes Flight

You don’t often see an RC version of the Japanese Aichi D3A (called “Val” by the Allies), and this one is a stunner. Jörg Albrecht’s 1/3.2-scale, 147-pound, model has a 14.5-foot wingspan and is powered by a Valach VM R420cc, four-stroke, five-cylinder radial. Thanks to RCGiantScalePlanes for taking this video at the Icare Airmeet.

  1. That’s a moose! 420cc radial. 147 pounds. Wow. Great job to Jorg!

  2. Very nice plane, and looks so smooth when flying.

  3. Awesome video. Awesome plane! Wonderfully scale ground-handling and aerobatics. And nothing beats the sound of a radial engine. Weathering looks like the plane’s been riding a carrier for awhile or parked in the jungle under a cammo net!

  4. where do i get the kit? thanks Craig Bradshaw
