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.. .
