This Czechoslovakian import is a Peanut Scale replica of an aerobatic aircraft that didn't get beyond the first prototype. As a model, it is a great flyer; 70-second flights indoors are possible.

The winners of the First World Aerobatic Championships all flew ZLlN-26 trainers; these planes were merely modified versions of the normal flying school trainers only. A new, special aerobatic plane, the Racek R-7, designed by Z. Rublic made its official roll-out on March 7, 1964. The experimental workshop of Brno-Melanky had made a very fine ship; Rublic used all wood construction and the same airfoil he used on his famous M-1D Sokol, powered by an in-line Waiter Minor 6-111 160 hp engine, and a constant-speed VSOOs propeller. The new plane was a better trainer in most respects from the Zlin, but there was no interest shown and the Racek never got beyond the first models.
BUILDING THE RACEK
Our system of building the peanut version of the Racek is very much like the full-scale plane, and isn't very complicated.
