Grumman TBM-3 Avenger, 1/8 Scale

Unfortunately this airplane is no longer around; an engine flame out on the downwind leg of a landing approach resulted in an off-field landing in some very rough terrain....but it was a great plane while it lasted (about 3 years)! Flew well, but a little on the heavy side at 26 pounds (58 oz/sq ft loading!!!). Features included folding wings, operable bomb bay doors with bomb/torpedo release, operable gun turret (slew and elevate). Built from Bob Holman plans; highly modified to include folding wings, etc. Wing span: 81 inches. Power: O.S. 1.60 FX with custom in-cowl muffler/exhaust system.

Here is a video taken at our local flying field:
