Half-Scale Masterpiece

Would you believe that Dean Copeland designed and built this beauty in just 4 months? A masters class entry this year’s Top Gun, the 50%-scale Cri-Cri Columban MC-15 is a work of art, with a fully detailed cockpit and moving controls. Dean powers it with twin Axi 4120-18 motors. It won Outstanding Craftsmanship and Best Civilian runner up. Check out these detail photos, and don’t miss our interview with Dean below.
