Vaguely, but then again the Earth was still flat and Santa Clause wore a blue coat.

This one made it's maiden flight just over a year ago. Still flying good.
(Now if I could just find a good AG kit and actually learn to take off)

Thanks, it's my second Quaker since 1989, (not counting the flyline 020 version)

It's a PennStation Quaker kit, no longer available, I bought the OS FS-60 back in 1981 for my Nosen Cub.
I really overestimated the torque of the cutting edge power plants for scale.
The cub never got higher than 20'.
But with an O&R 14/4 prop it hauls the Quaker nicely.
It free flights from takeoff until I'm forced by drift to bring it back.
Search Nick Santovito on youtube and you'll see it.
