41% Prometheus Airshow Skyrocket — A Giant scale copy of Skip Stewart’s amazing biplane

Every generation of aviation enthusiasts has their own superhero pilots that they set their own standards by and aspire to be like. Several years ago, pilots like Sammy Mason with his checkerboard Stearman and Art Scholl with his Super Chipmunk were the top dogs of the airshow circuit. Today, the list is of aerobatic supermen is impressive and at the top is Skip Stewart and his amazing Prometheus Biplane. A highly modified Pitts S2-S, the Prometheus is constantly being upgraded to give Skip the most performance possible. This 41% scale copy of Skip’s Prometheus is just as exciting and has scale construction all the way down to the fuselage frame and wing construction. Build by Patric Leis, this RC monster is powered by a DLE 222cc 4-cylinder engine and while flying, Patric uses all the horses this engine produces.
