It's a WWI German A7V. Fits right in with the fleet.

Have you tried a larger battery?

It doesn't have any sparks. You will need flint/wheel. You might need a flashing light too.

When you have that covered, wind up the drive spring tight before leaving for the field. Wind it again when you get there (don't break it!) If you are unsure about your flying abilities, see if there is a field nearby with a tank commander to yell in your ear.

This is all the advice I have for now. Good luck!
