Hi all,

Those E-Flite Jenny and Se5a just go me hooked to WW1 bad and I don't know what will come after this. I suggest they put out these following as my wish list:

1. Fokker Triplane.
2. Camel.
3. Nieuport 17
4. Fokker DVII

What plane do you think they will put out next if they are planning at all? DP

If I had my pick it would be Nieuport 17 or camel. great planes already has a fokker DVII and DR.1 triplane. and lanier has a fokker DVII( though it was discontinued after hobbico aquired lanier and goldberg models)

SPAD VII or XIII
Albatros D.II, D.III or D.V

Gotta be something German. The Fokker Tri-plane is most recognizable, but might be difficult to pull off in 3 channels. The Fokker DVII would work. Cheat in a little dihedral and it would make a good dog fight companion to the Se5a :cool:

I second that motion!

Something around 45 inches for the wingspan.

The Fokker Dr1 should fly fine on 3 channels just add some dihedral. My Sopwith Tripe flys good on 3 channels. The Fokker Dr1 and D VII models are everywhere. How about a WW1 plane that is harder to find for sale ARF. Now I really think one of the Spad models would be nice. I think a Bristol F2, SVA, or a Breguet 14 would make great flying models because they have a longer nose then a lot of WW1 planes. I already have a Camel, it is hard to blance cause of the short nose, and I already have the Albatros, both bought ARF.

I would LOVE for them to put out a plane that will handle flying outside.

this indoor stuff just isn't cutting it.

I probably have 30 flights on my Jenny so far, all of them outside. Just because you can fly it indoors doesn't mean it can't fly outdoors (Capt. Obvious strikes again! :D)

I only fly outside. The Jenny will fly in a light breeze. Mine will even fly upside down. I have a 1300kv brushless, 7x6 prop, and 2s Lipo.

I am talking about something with a little more substance. Like their P-47, or the taylorcraft.

Hangar 9 has a 70-something inch Fokker DVII. Of course it will cost you close to $1000 to put it and a huge battery pack in the air :rolleyes:

Since their first two offerings are pretty scale, I like to see their subsequent products having good scale outline. I don't think triplane or Fokker with excessive dihedral would work for me. A few years ago, Simprop put out a medium size Pfalz (40ish span) and it was so beautiful with excellent scale outline. Unfortunatetly they discontinued it. I wish Eflite would pick up where Simprop left of. I also like to see Eflite putting a little bigger foam WW1 birds in the 40ish span range so they can handle the wind a little better. DP

There's plenty of nice scale WWI planes out there, if you want to buy the big batts and motors :D




in regards to E-Flite's next plane? We'll know in a couple days, they like to debut them at SEFF

Of all brands that Horrizon carries, I am most impressed with E-Flite stuff. Its quality is way above others. I do hope another WW1 plane (foam) comes out at SEFF! Any gosips? DP

Check out the new 1/6 scale planes from Balsa USA. (don't have the hyperlink)
Now available is the Neuport 17 and Sopwith Pup.
I made sure to stop by the BUSA booth at Toledo to get a good look at these two. Very nice planes for E-conversion and typical BUSA quality wood. One of the guys at the booth showed me some samples of some new balsa supplies they will be receiving soon and the samples looked very good. I almost bought the "Pup" when I was there , but decided I had enough goodies to tote back home. Anyway I'm headed over to their facility today with some of the other guys in my club. we are flying over in a BNC-2 islander piloted by another clubmember( charter pilot as well). he's very experienced and has flown private jets including the Cessna Citation 10. also went up with him in a Stearman!!!!
I may return with the Pup tucked under my arm if the temptation proves too great. I will try to resist. (yeah sure) LOL,
cheers.
