Get her up in the air and flying, and I bet she looks like the real deal! Hope you can get yours on the boat soon!

Put one of the pilots in it I sent you. I want one too. LOL

It is almost finished. Waiting on crystal for the receiver. I need to fly and make trim adj on servo then install pilot and other little trim items.

The Bristol Scout rebuild is almost finished so I am working on my next rebuild. Do some research and see if you can guess what model I am rebuilding to fly again now. Here is the finished tail. You will have to look hard, not much info on this plane.

You're rebuilding a model of Hans Grade's 1909 Grade II Libelle (dragon fly) Eindecker.
Do you have any more pics of your build?

Yes. The model is the 1913 Grade III.

One of the GWS IPS motor systems would probably be perfect for that plane, and actually look somewhat scale in appearance.

It had what looked to be a 300 motor and gear box. The fuselage(balsa square stick) was in pieces. I replaced it with a CF arrow shaft. Wattman sent me some motor mounts and one of them was a tube mount. It was a perfect fit on the arrow shaft and a 2410-09 840KV brushless motor I had. If that is too much power I will order a 2410-12Y which turns even slower.

I should have to plane finished in a couple more days and will post pictures. Video soon after that if I don't crash it.

I am now looking for a pilot. Need one with arms. I may try making paper arms using a paper WWII German soldier file I have and attaching to one of my vacuum formed pilots.

Here is a sales pictures of the model.

Looking forward to your finished plane!!!! I like it!!

The Grade Eindecker III is waiting to take its first flight after rebuild.

degreen60 10-02-2011 01:00 AM

After sun went down the wind dropped so I took the Grade Eindecker out for test flight right at dusk. Flew great but when I went to land almost too dark to see it so landing was a little ruff but no damage. At least this plane does not flip over in the grass when the wheels touch, it goes up on its nose then back down on the tail wheel.

MaxHeadspeed 10-02-2011 01:57 AM

Well done. It's quite a unique RC flying model.

Great job degreen! Love it! You might have to change your signature now.

And for my last stunt, a handstand.

LSSS 10-04-2011 03:48 PM

Here's a resource with lots of WWI rc scale models that may be worth checking out:

Amazing! It appears to fly beautifully.

However, I am beginning to suspect that your back yard is really a green screen and all your videos are cgi. The sun and temperature are always strangely perfect and the scenery is too good to be true!

wattman 10-06-2011 07:06 PM

What a really nice slow flyer , great old plane , and yes your patrol area is looking really good also . :)

7car7 10-06-2011 07:10 PM

Can't seem to watch the vid.

TM4197 10-06-2011 07:15 PM

VERY VERY nice!! I love it!! I have to agree with Hobbyjumper, I think you need to have someone walk accross the grass on the next video maybe holding a newspaper with that days date on it....seems to perfect!!
