Any body see any new info on the Fokker tripe? It's supposed to be available in red or black. I think the wingspan is 50"!!! It's a little expensive but I think it comes with ESC, brushless outrunner, and servos already in place. You can only see a picture of the boxart at www.powerlinehobbies.com (http://www.powerlinehobbies.com) if you go there. Steve.

50" Tripe with powertrain and sevos for $200 sounds pretty darn good.:)


I hope someone posts a flight report on one of their planes.....

Enough off topic. That would be a sweet plane, I bet. Can't wait to hear more about her.....

The only part of the tripe that I don't like is the see-through covering on the wheels. Easily fixed though!! I can't wait to see a review or something!! Steve

If it comes with all of that it would be awesome...

I am guessing it isn't 50" since the sopwith is only 37.8" and is the same price.

the trouble is, lots of people have asked about it, but there's been no reviews

I know!! You would think that they would be more than willing to get some kind of information released. I would like to at least see pics of the actual plane! Steve

well, what I was getting at, is this plane has been on the market for a while.

I have seen posts asking about it, for months at least.

yet no one has bought it? tried it out? written about it? good or bad?


I think I sent them an email about the lack of info, and that maybe they should donate one to Wattflyer as a prize...

then they would have good publicity as everyone read what the prize was, who donated it, then someone would win it, and would write about it...

I've sent them emails just asking them about the plane and never was contacted. I don't get it! Steve
