I have just bought this without seeing it, and I pick it up later on this week. AI have no idea of what model it is, or size or what engine is in it.

Can anybody identify them please?

Den it looks like a Vmar Apache

Here's an example from a quick google search.

Yes Chris and thanks, thats the one. I have been looking round all night trying to find

Not quite 100% sure, but one website lists it as a 68" wingspan

Hello Den . hard to tell which engine it is . Looks like an OS copy such as ASP,OrSC . You might be lucky and have a propper OS !

Thanks Engine Doctor, but I have actually picked it up now, and the engine is in fact an OS 46 FX.

Well Den you've got an excellent engine. We were given an Apache as a club trainer some time ago. I've never flown it myself but others claim that it flies well.

Superb plane, one of the group of fliers I fly with passed his old loft held Apache on to my son for him to fly instead of his HiBoy (which he was also given) because the HiBoy came in rather too quick for him.

This has always been my criticism of the Hi-Boy.
