Here’s a great photo of Scott Davis and his award winning 1/3 scale Balsa USA Stearman showcased next to the full size subject that he and his son Ryan modeled it after. Scott’s Stearman is powered by a Moki 250cc 5-cylinder radial with a 50oz smoke tank and 40oz gas tank. This beautiful bi-plane has proudly taken to the air several hundred times sporting a Futaba radio and nothing less than a Duralite on-board flight system. “We only trust Duralite in our scale birds” Scott says. “It was a sad lesson we had to learn the hard way.” Ryan added.
