Take a look at this 1/2-scale RC Tiger Moth! The 58 kg model is done up in French WW I Armée de L’air colors, it has impressive performance in the air. Unfortunately we couldn’t find any information on the plane or the pilot.

The Tiger Moth remained in service with the RAF until it was succeeded and replaced by the de Havilland Chipmunk during the early 1950s. Many of the military surplus aircraft subsequently entered into civil operation.
