I have always been on the look out for any indoor or micro WW1 subject as they always seem so graceful in the air and are slow flyers as a general rule. The kit materials and manual were first class. Anyone looking to add one to the fleet should take a very good look at this one. As the winds are running about 25 knots today I will be holding off the maiden flight. The attached jpg's show the completed kit and the rest of the fleet at the present time.
The paint was Model Master water based and the electronics were from a micro P-51. Wing span of 13 inches with 28 grams with out the battery.
Looks fantastic!! I really like the paint job...What motor ?
The motor came from PZ P51 kit that had run it's course. The way the kit is designed this was a no brainer to drop in. Thanks for the kind words on the finished product, now if it will fly as good as it looks....
Looks very nice.
Interesting wing bracing - in flight its under compression.
Given its small span that's a huge prop. Without ailerons will it be able to handle the torque?
Do let us know how you get on.
That looks really sweet. I've been thinking about scratch-building a Sopwith tripe out of blue FFF.
p.s. which kit, exactly, is this?
I ran across this kit on the RcGroups board. They seem to have a large following on the plane and the kit construction. This is a lazer cut kit done very clean and easy to build. Below is the link to the thread with contact info. I do not know the person selling the kits but everyone is pleased with the outfit.
