Hi, Just thought I would show off my recently completed Nieuport 11 built from the free plan in QFI mag - flown once in a gusty wind but still looked good. Thanks to Peter Rake for an excellent design!!

Your build looks really good , is there such a thing as a bad P Rake plan ?

Nice! What's the wingspan?

If there is a bad one it would still be a good one!

Its the 42" wingspan one

Just waiting for a relatively calm day/evening to get some proper flights in

Have since had many flights in all calm to gentle wind conditions and it's perfect, will loop and do scale type rolls will even fly inverted (just!). Has two 1600mah 3 cell lipo's in parallel under the cowl to get the balance right and get 20 minute flights!. Going to sort a dummy engine etc now to make it look even better in the air and on the ground.

Sweet plane. Love the size too - I need one in that scale.

Kenl40009,
Nice work, great looking plane. I'm not familiar with the designer but will check him out on his other stuff.
