Antonov AN-2 Colt

I've been busy on the last days...
I resized and tiled one plan I found here on the forum from Pres Bruning/1982.
I saw one thread about the AN-2 here in Rcgroups and did not resist.
Here is my scratchbuild Antonov AN-2, not so scale like but close.
Equipment is: brusheless motor, 25a esc, 2.4ghz rx and fly on 2s.
Used depron 3mm for wing structure and fuselage and depron 1mm for covering the plane.

Here is some pictures of my first prototype.
Hope you enjoy!

Very nice looking AN-2. So how does it fly?

Thanks Gary!
I've tested this plane before the painting and it flew very nice, (a little bit tail heavy, already fixed).
Now I'm just waiting a less windy day to test the An-2 again, I will make some videos and post here.

Oh man, don't you just hate it when that happens?

Happy to hear you have it back together though, it looked like was going to be a good flier.

Yeap I hate when it happens... But it is part of our hobby, she is a good flier indeed and as per my previous experiences with other models, she will be better after the third crash LOL
