Here are a few photos [more pics 006-011]. I'm using a Turnigy 32 electric for power instead of gas. Hope it has enough power.

Attached some shots of my own Crusader, built from Mercury kit plans and converted to R/C [more pics 004-006].
RFJ : Crusader (oz11902) : 20/01/2020

Doh. My mistake. I was reading the continental style figure '1' as a '7', so the correct wingspan is 2100 mm. That's 82.6 inches. Thanks to Harry Kirkland for checking this.

Relay in vertical fin so like early R/C pulse control.

Nothing wrong with the model, it has all the looks for a great flyer. Thank you to Pikpak for his bringing this, and thank you to...
Miguel : Zeus (oz11896) : 17/01/2020

Thank you to PikPak for this really most substantial donation to OZ (for me at least). Such a nice pack which really made my day. And a 100% thumbs up for the lines about this most anoying ebay problem!
Hubert : Zeus (oz11896) : 17/01/2020

There was indeed a Yak-25 in 1947 with straight wings but the prototype died an early death - It's type designation was sponged off, to be resurrected a few years later with the two-engine Yak-25 family which did enjoy long service. Still...
