The C-47 Skytrain has always been a plane that I admired. Perhaps more so, the thousands of men that signed up to jump out of them behind enemy lines to free Europe from the Nazi occupation of World War Two. Often flying at night and under heavy barrages of flak and tracer fire, the pilots would take this fragile, unarmed plane and its squad of up to 27 men into harm’s way.
I’m a sucker for a good micro RC vehicle. As a kid, I always dreamed of making a small free flight stick built plane controllable by RC. Now we can do that or we can just buy any one of the many micro RC aircraft that are ready to fly out of the box! Now Flyzone is bringing out a Micro C-47 Skytrain that we can enjoy indoors or at a local ball field.
I’m looking forward to seeing this one in person! Check it out at Tower Hobbies at the link below.
