One of the most amazing r/cs I have seen. I contacted the webmaster to see if he has any video of the a/c flying

Unfortunately Evan damaged this 109 badly on one of its early flights. He plans to rebuild it again though. BTW, it was not built from scratch - it was built from the Pat McCurry (PCM) kit. In R/C scale modeling, "building from scratch" usually means that you start with 3 view drawings and then draw up your own plans. Not that building such a complex kit such as this is that much easier than building from scratch and the finish of Evan's model is really incredible. Here is a pic of Pat McCurry with the prototype for the 109 kit:

He has won a whole bunch of awards with that kit. It truely is an awesome model although of course a bit pricey and definately not for the inexperienced modeler.

If you are interested in these types of build-along articles, have a look at the links below:

Or how about an awesome, scratch built Su-27:

Fiberglass kits with foam wings, and laser cut parts are about as easy as it gets in the kit market.
The hard part is adding all the little details in there.

I'm currently building a 1/9th scale Stuka. It's nothing but balsa, and ply with full built up wings, and fuselage. Sheeted, and then glassed.

That is a very nice looking 109 though.

Every take-off is optional, but every landing is mandatory!
