Battle of Britain Fighter

Battle of Britain Fighter

This warbird has been flying for six years and has made 90 flights! Built by John Veasey, this 1/4.5-scale Hawker Hurricane was the prototype for the Tony Nijhuis line of Hurricane kits. Featuring all built-up construction with a fiberglass cowl and formed canopy, this 103-inch-span RC fighter weighs 38 pounds and is powered by a Zenoah G62 gas engine and controlled by a JR radio. Thanks to Dean and Pete Coxon for taking this video at the North Leeds Model Flying Club Large-Scale Day and sharing it with us. They note that the “bonus” clips at the end of the video were filmed at the Southern Headcorn RC Model Show in 2014 and 2016 and show some impressive one-wheel landings — one of which happened in a very strong crosswind!
