I put this together for a friend of mine who was having a blast with this airplane. This is the Quest Electric Sailplane from Hobby People. This sure looks like a great way to spend an afternoon! The airplane is available at http://bit.ly/1Su9w8V

This P-47 started life as a Top Flight ARF and was completely refinished into what is featured in this video. Owner/builder/pilot is Don Rice. Don finished 2nd at the US Scale Master's Championships in the ProAm class with the airplane. Unfortunately, the airplane is in a state of repair now as Don tied the world's record for the lowest inverted pass...hitting the tail and dragging it across the runway on it's back.
