"Draco" bush plane (full-scale)

I really enjoyed this vid. The aircraft is a highly modified Wilga PZL-104. At approx. 00.06.00 there's some very interesting info on the fuel system. This aircraft would be interesting to model. A simple-small C/L "profile" for Cox 1/2A power could be a lot of fun.

I got to fly a Wilga once.  One day about 20 years ago, I was at the local airport and scammed a ride in a Stearman I saw warming up.  The owner was a local businessman who liked to buy and sell planes like a used car salesman.  For some reason, he took a liking to me and liked to show off his plane acquisitions.  One day I saw an ad for a Breezy for sale, and went to the airport to look at it.  Turns out it belonged to the businessman, and after we flew the Breezy, he showed me the Wilga he just bought.  We went up in it, and it IS an impressive short field plane.  Looked like we were pointing straight down when we came in for landing.  But, as impressive as the short field handling is, that thing was a truck!  Heaviest controls I've ever had my hands on.  Those Soviet block pilots must have had Popeye arms after flying those things for a while.
