Flying shots of Peanut models are very, very difficult so this one of the Polikarpov climbing away is truly remarkable and extremely realistic mine has a great performance, being capable of remaining airborne at low speed and low power, making it possible to use a long length of rubber motor.
This is a very easy model to build with all aspects of construction being relatively conventional.
