This YouTube video was uploaded on June 9, 2015. It says it is rare. I have no idea if it was seen before this.. If not, it was a great find.

Go advanced (under the quick reply) and there's an upload manager for the pictures.

Picture size is limited... This is the #1 cause of upload fail. Load the picture in your favorite graphics editor and reduce size 50% at a time until it works. (save as a new file name to not overwrite the original)

Another option is to load the pictures to imgur.com or another sharing service and then link the picture from there.

Thank you. Appreciate it. Adam;-)

Building season is still here so my friend Neons put me on to this build and its time. I will use a airfoil on the wings as Freddy B showed us how to sand one in . http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=425387 I like this one because its a good size plane and a dollar tree store a couple blocks from my home .:D joe

Not enough posts yet i dont think to load pictures and links. joe

Adamich31 03-14-2016 08:59 PM

Not sure what you mean? Are you saying not active enough to post pics? Where are those rules posted, I thought I gave them a good look. Well, if that's the case and you want to see them, email me directly if that's allowable. I'm not looking to ruffle any feathers here. Just thought they may help a fellow R/C nut! Adam

fhhuber 03-14-2016 09:17 PM

Actually, I think the link wasn't quite posted right to be clickable.

But it copy-pasted fine.

You can also link the individual pictures and make them show in your post.

Link worked fine, just pasted into my browser and there they were. Very nice work. I really like what you did with the I beam motor mount and hanging the batteries on same. Is there an anchor pin in there to secure them?

Good work!!

Don

Thanks Don. :)

This thread is for WWI aircraft and related issues. Not for pig shirt ads and problems with linkages on later model aircraft. Wake up moderaters! I don't want to see this stuff on the threads.

Here's where we're at so far today...taking it slow, so not a lot of progress...drawing up the plans took a bit, started building last week.
wingspan 120" wing area 2520 sq. in. full flying tail feathers, and it's going to use wing warping instead of ailerons. ....next project is to make the pillar, and LG.

BUSA Fokker DR.1 1/6 scale

Hi fellow WWI enthusiasts!

Just finished my Balsa USA kit of a Fokker DR.1 triplane in 1/6 scale. It is powered by a 4S setup on a Hacker motor. Thought I would share a couple of pics:

Here is the setup and kit:

Nice looking build, how does it fly?

quorneng 02-12-2021 09:10 PM

A very nice neat build but like all 'modern' Triplanes that nose is too long.
The full size Oberusel U II rotary used in the Triplane was a heavy engine.
With a true scale nose it is hard to to get enough weight forward, or build the tail end light enough, without a lot of lead up front.;)
Do let us know how it flies.. .
