Face­book Best in Show

Electric Flight - - AIRMAIL -

We re­cently posted Joe Le­wan­doski’s im­pres­sive e-pow­ered Dornier Do 335 “Ar­row,” which ended up earn­ing Joe the Best in Show award at the AMA Expo East. Joe’s WW II Luft­waffe fighter was beau­ti­fully de­tailed, and it im­pressed ev­ery­one. It was pow­ered with a pair of E-flite Power 160 brush­less mo­tors, with two 10S 5000mah Lipo packs for each mo­tor. We re­ceived a lot of com­ments about this 35-pound beauty, and here’s what some of you had to say.

JR: One of my fa­vorites from WW II. I al­ways love see­ing the one at the Ud­var-hazy Cen­ter out­side of Wash­ing­ton, D.C.

PS: And it is HUGE! The pilot fig­ure looks like it’s the wrong scale, but it’s not.

RV: Ex­cel­lent model. The owner was very hos­pitable and shared a lot on the model and its his­tory when I spoke with him at the show. JB: But does it fly? JT: The in-line twin lay­out was a very ad­vanced de­sign for its time dur­ing WW II.

We love hear­ing from our read­ers. Your emails, tweets, and com­ments let us know what you’d like to see more (or less!) of in our up­com­ing is­sues and on­line. Here’s what some of you are say­ing about Elec­tric Flight mag­a­zine.
