FW190 Engine startup, fly and taxing at Breitscheid Airshow 2010.
This FW190 is a 1:1 new build replica (very close to the the original aircraft, exept the engine). The parts came from "Flugwerk" as a kit and "Meier Motors" put it together and made it airworthy. These new FW190 replicas were sold with a Russian/Chinese ASh-82 14 cyl. 2000 Horsepower radial engine, which was a good match for the rare BMW801 14 cyl. radial engines at a much lower cost. The replicas were designed with a new 3-blade prop, but one of the first examples crashed from a failure in the electric prop control. The 4-blade was a matched prop from the Tu-2 that was substituted while the problem with the new 3-blade was fixed. The 3-blade prop is now back in use. This aircraft is now flying in the USA.
