Just put an order in for one myself! I went through my LHS and he said it may just be in on Friday...we'll see.

The downside is...there will be another delay on my Powerline Sopwith Camel build...

If I had not just scratch built one of these that video would have sold it to me. Wow!

The EFlite model looks nice. Has anyone seen the Lanier Se5a in person? I think that one looks good too.

Santa's bringing me the DynaFlite Se5a kit. It's made of this light brown stuff that comes in sheets and must be glued together. Seems vaguely familiar...

Dangit Dave, you are making me crazy......

As it is, my motor I cashed, a buddy cleaned out for me and works fine now. So, I have a motor that will fit it, and no plane to put it in.......hmmmmmm.

Now, when those tubes you made get here I can put them to good use.

I don't know if you guys know about this or not but you can get a foam Fokker triplane from Gary Villete at www.dvflightech.com to chase your SE5A's around. Steve

I am hoping with the popularity of these, E-Flite makes more similaryly priced airplanes in this vein. Fokker, Stearman, Sopwith Camel.....yanno, all sorts of fun times.
