The RC Mosquito from NitroPlanes has a wingspan of 73 in. and is 52 1/2 in. long. To power it you will need a pair of .25 to .32 two stroke or .26 to .30 four stroke engines. It is of all wood construction. Weight is about 11 1/2 lbs.

When first flown, the Mosquito, produced by de Havilland, had the speed and altitude to evade any enemy aircraft of the day. It was built from pressed wood veneer, and because of its speed, had no defensive armament.
