hstew,

they look great ....BUT....how about some full fuse versions?

then i'd be interested for sure...i love building with depron.

and, (horses for courses), i hate profile planes...

any plans on doing fuse types?

Tim.

Just my two cents worth, but aren't they a little expensive for profile planes?

Well guys, they are semi-profiles. The fuselage is made from three laminations of 6 mm Depron which allows all the wiring and ESC to be concealed within the fuselage and the receiver, servos, and battery to be partially concealed. The kits include everything necessary to complete the airframes. Carbon tube spars, formed aluminum landing gears, aluminum motor mounts, wheels, hinges, pushrods, EZ connectors, al the nuts, bolts, and screws necessary, The various ply and wood blocks for gear and servo mounting, even the velcro for attaching the battery. Plus, the fuselage is pre assembled in a jig to assure accurace and has the pushrod tubes already installed. So all in all they are not quite your ordinary profile.

Models in order are...1/3 size DR1....1/3 size DR1...1/4 size D V1 and 1/5 size D V11, and a 1/5 sized E 111...I am currently building a 1/4 sized D V111 to add to the " Jasta" all are electric powered, and all fly on 20 cells or less....D V1...10 cells....E 111 ...10 cells...to give you some idea of size....the funny looking guy leaning over the DR1 is over 6 ft. tall

Great pictures Ron!!! How about a little more info on the power system in the big tripe. That is one good looking plane!!! I have two of the little tripes in one of those pictures. That picture makes it look like a RC plane sitting on the tailplane of the 1:1 plane!!! Man, if I only had the money to build something with that kind of size!!! Steve.

Ron builds nice planes doesn't he Martin!! Hey Martin, I got a email from National Balsa. My wood should be here on Tuesday according to the tracking. Guess I'd better get ready to start building!! It has been so windy around here that I haven't been able to fly anyway. Think I'll make a pink plane that way you guys can't say, "Why don't you do something besides red fokkers!" What do you think? Maybe pink with purple maltese crosses trimmed in orange. Sounds good, huh? Steve.

I don't know if this has been mentiioned but the English publications Aviation Modeler International and Flying Scale Modeler have had a number of full-sized plans for WW1 planes for motors in the geared 400 range. Both mags will often carry a free full size plan with a very basic construction article.

That is one thing I miss about my LHS changing hands. They no longer carry the British magazines with all those great plans.

Hey 50+airyears!! Do you have any of these plans and would you be willing to sell copies or trade them? Martin and I are always looking for plans of that size. Especially German aircraft. Steve.
