The Cessna L-19/O-1 Bird Dog is a liaison and observation aircraft. It was the first all-metal fixed-wing aircraft ordered for and by the United States Army following the Army Air Forces' separation from it in 1947. The Bird Dog had a lengthy career in the U.S. military, as well as in other countries.

The L-19 received the name Bird Dog as a result of a contest held with Cessna employees to name the aircraft. The winning entry, submitted by Jack A. Swayze, an industrial photographer, was selected by a U.S. Army board. The name was chosen because the role of the army's new aircraft was to find the enemy and orbit overhead until artillery (or attack aircraft) could be brought to bear on the enemy. While flying low and close to the battlefield, the pilot would observe the exploding shells and adjust the fire via his radios, in the manner of a bird dog (gun dog) used by game hunters.

Now, VQ are introducing the Cessna L-19 Bird Dog .55 size EP-GP as a super-scale series (S3). This L-19 Bird Dog comes with 2 scale flaps, 1 x 3D printed and painted pilots (Full Body), 2 x 3D printed and painted scale seats, scale cockpit and antenna. In addition, the pilot door can be opened and closed, making your L-19 look like the real thing. With a large battery hatch, you can use either an Electric motor or a Nitro motor.
