One of my all-time fa­vorite war movies is Tora! Tora! Tora!, about the Ja­panese at­tack on Pearl Har­bor. I first saw it with my par­ents at a drive-in movie, so that tells you how long ago that was. I have al­ways wanted to build a sorta-scale RC Zero, but all the kits I see in the hobby shop are too big. Would you, by chance, know of a source for an elec­tric-pow­ered Zero that would be easy to build? Thanks for a great magazine.—paul Mcdaniel, Dear­born, MI

Paul, thanks for be­ing a reader. Tora! Tora! Tora! was a great wartime avi­a­tion movie, fol­lowed by Mid­way. I think these two movies re­ally left their mark with avi­a­tion lovers and RC mod­el­ers alike. You are in luck as we do have a set of plans for a Zero on our web­site, Ai­rage­store.com. Our good friend and elec­tric scale

mas­ter de­signer Mark Rit­tinger came up with this im­pres­sive Zero a while ago, and it is one of our best sell­ers. Look for plan num­ber X0314A. This ris­ing-sun World War II war­bird has a 49-inch span, is 38 inches long, uses con­ven­tional balsa-and-ply con­struc­tion, and fea­tures foam wing cores. The model can be built with or with­out re­tractable land­ing gear, and it fea­tures a quick-re­lease wing at­tach­ment for fast bat­tery changes. Rud­der and retracts are op­tional. It was de­signed for an E-flite Power 25 brush­less mo­tor.—gy
