Yes your triplane flys really nice and slow , its bad , because it makes me think that I could actually fly one myself
I really enjoy your videos with the period music , I watch your Fokker DVII videos , OFTEN and your Albatros videos also .
As I slowly assemble my EFlite Fokker DVII ..........I often turn my chair from my work table to the computer and watch your D7 videos , and hope that I can fly mine like in your videos .
Wow, thanks Wattman and 7Car7! That's very nice of you guys. Hey, if I can build and fly this DR.I, it can't be that difficult! You will be so happy with the Eflite DVII, it does fly very nice. I have the Eflite N17 and it is the total opposite for me. The DVII restored my confidence in myself as well as Eflite. As for the DR.I, I've always read/heard that the triplane is a handful, but I've found it to not be bad at all. I hope that I will be able to get used to ailerons soon and have better videos to post. Steve's free DR.I plan from the rcgroups forum has been a very good experience for me. I recommend that everyone try it!
Wow, what a great plane! Love the slow flying, it looks perfect in the air.
What wheels did you use? Wing Span?
Hi 7car7, the wheels were a gift from my friend who owns Williams Brothers and they can be found here: http://www.williamsbrothersmodelproducts.com/rc.html
They are the Vintage II Wheels, I used specifically # 13148 (3.75" diameter) with white tire.
They look like this:
I built Steve Shumate's plan at 100% and the wing span for the top wing is 36.5".
