A6M5 Zero big scale

Hello!
My name is Daniel
I was born, live, work and fly in Poland (:
I fly RC models recently (3 years)
about half a year ago I did something like this:

video of the test flight:

flies great and often serves as a platform for me to make films from the air:

I greet (:

Nice work Daniel! Your plane certainly has plenty of power. I like it.

Daniel,

Your Zero does appear to fly very well, the pilot is no slouch as well.
Was it made from a cyber fly kit? I've recently become aware of the popularity of WWII combat flying in Poland and continue to be impressed by the EPP planes I see videos of.
I recently obtained a PZL P11c kit from Marek Rokowski. It is being built and I have hopes that it will fly as well as those I've seen in videos.

That's very cool!

Do you have a set of drawings that you built it from?

I'd be very interested in building one myself.

Daniel will need to confirm, but I think he built it from this kit.

I am happy that you like it. This is exactly the set of Cyber ​​Fly, Steve (: I built one model alone, but according to the plans of wood. I can not cut EPP, do not have the right tools. Now I'm building a Spitfire from Mark Rokowski. A little more accurately mapped from Mitsubishi A6M5 of Cyber ​​Fly. I write with a translator, for possible errors, sorry.

I've been using Google translate to glean info from his website and the Polish forum about Mareks' planes, a bit tedious and sometimes incomplete, but way better than nothing.

For any who are interested, Marek Rokowski is active in rcgroups, his shop is set up for sale and delivery to the USA. http://www.napolskimniebie.pl/
Text is all in Polish, but copy and paste into Google translate and away you go. Marek is capable in English and responds quickly to e-mail inquiries.

Shipping for my kit was $7.15. It arrived 9 days after leaving his shop, the box was a bit roughed up, but the kit was in good shape. EPP's durability stands in good stead here as well at the flying field.

Cutting was excellent. My plane has a 5 piece, gull shape wing that required almost no shaping by me to glue together a nicely symmetrical wing. Fuselage is beautifully rounded in all the right places. Wing is a symmetrically shaped airfoil, tail feathers are flat plate.

Still building, but so far I'd recommend his wares. His planes are smaller than the Zero daniiel features here, and I don't think cyber fly is setup for sales to the USA.

Thanks guys, I'll look into that. I've got an 800mm Zero now and I'd like a bigger one and this looks the ticket.

daniiel,

Photos are quite good quality. I especially like the one that has the smokestacks, bridge and cross in the background.

Your Zero appears to be holding up quite well. The PZL P11c of Marek's I built flies very nicely after a couple of harrowing trimming flights.

It met terra firma with vigor twice and its' still being in good flying condition after minimal repairs reminds me of EPP's most endearing quality, the ability to withstand the rigors of being flown by a pilot who's "Nerve often exceeds his skill." Loosely quoted from Stirling Moss, old school British F1 driver.
