Has anyone here flown the new Green RC Sopwith? I saw one today and the only assembly was installing the prebuilt landing gear, your receiver, and battery. the servos, motor, and ESC are already installed. I noticed both wings have ailerons (Coupled) and the cowling with dummy cylinders looked good. I don't usually go for ARFs and RTFs but I was tempted.

The 37" wingspan has been out for a while and requires more asembly this on is around a 27" wingspan and its pretty much a RTF.

It is a classic design isn't? I have lways loved to old rotary and radial aircraft and the Camel has a special place in that love.

I think I like the larger one better.

Well, why wouldn't you?

Bigger is often better, and easier to fly as well.

Cute little plane but VERY expensive!! I know, I know, it comes with everything but an RX but still. I hope it flies as well as my 23"ws Fokker tripe I built. If it does, you're really gonna like it!! Steve

Looks like the cowl is too long, probably made that way for balance. My Camel needs a lot of weight forward so I use 1800ma Nimhs installed under the cowl. Also I installed the servo against the backside of the firewall and use pull-pull to keep the tail light.
