Default Qrome/Jtechlaser Fokker Dr.1

I have always loved the Red Fokker Dr.1 and have built a couple over the years. Jtechlaser cut the files for BlueSkyRC but has not produced this kit in couple of years. I was offered the opportunity to build a prototype and of course I jumped all over that. The wood and cutting is excellent quality, remember this is a short kit. Like most of these short kits the plans leave a lot to the builder, such as mounting motors and hatches. I made all my hatches on the bottom, the battery hatch is magnet but the fuselage hatch is screwed into the bottom of the wing. She is powered with Rimfire 400, Silver Series 35 ESC, 11.1 1000mah battery, Electrifly Nano servos X 4 and Futaba FASST rx. Built traditional with wood glue and covered with Monokote, I hate painting. Hopefully Blueskyrc starts selling this as a kit again.

ID:	174163 Plans don't call for how to make the bottom. I added a hatch up front and this 1/8 balsa sheeting to the rear of the wing saddle.
