Fokker Eindecker RC Ziroli by:CoMIYC69

This is a very historic plane. The beginning is for the ultimate scale model masters history of the real plane. Below will be the tech on building the model. (Enjoy)

Fokker was a Dutch aircraft manufacturer named after its founder, Anthony Fokker. The company operated under several different names, starting out in 1912 in Schwerin, Germany, moving to the Netherlands in 1919. The Eindecker fighters themselves were designed by Martin Kreutzer and 10 upgraded models were buillt. By any standard these were some of the first planes built in history for war. Only two original planes remain and one was the re***embled Immelmann E.I, with IdFlieg-issued serial E.13/15 in a museum in Dresden where it was destroyed by Allied bombing.

During its most successful period in the 1920s and 1930s, it dominated the civil aviation market. Fokker went into bankruptcy in 1996, and its operations were sold to competitors.

The Nick Zeroli Fokker Eindecker 52" model

Definitely a well built semi-scale kit that beginners to well established builders will enjoy.

As with most WW1 planes don't expect too much performance out of this. See the original specs above, the original only flew 87 mph. :) This plan does not show a fourth channel and servo for ailerons however many builders have modified and added the extra channel and even converted to electric.
Watch a real beauty flying in the link to YouTube.

Other models may take considerable time and skill to build but this one was for the whole line of hobbiests. I would expect that only the most devoted aviation model builders will even attempt this. Obviously need a fairly nice day for a inexperienced pilot.

Either way a beautiful historic model.
Flying Models still carries the original plans for this model.

Sopwith Pup Triplane Airplane Radio-Control 31/08/15 11:35:31am

Sopwith Pup Triplane by:BBailey

The Sopwith Triplane was a British single seat fighter aircraft designed and manufactured by the Sopwith Aviation Company during the First World War. Pilots nicknamed it the Tripehound or simply the Tripe.[2] The Triplane became operational with the Royal Naval Air Service in early 1917 and was immediately successful. The Triplane was nevertheless built in comparatively small numbers (Product: 147) and was withdrawn from active service as Sopwith Camels arrived in the latter half of 1917. Surviving aircraft continued to serve as operational trainers until the end of the war.
The Model Scale is .75in to 1 ft. These plans are very complete to and show now wing Rib sections, that is because they are built up. This plan is for well educated users, the wiring alone is very tough. BBailey

Piper Vagabond 74in by:granddadr

Piper Vagabond 74in
The Piper "Vagabond" was the first airplane produced after World War II. Essentially, it is a "wide-body" Piper Cub with a slightly shorter wingspan. Instead of the "fore and aft" seating of the J-3 Cub, the Vagabond has the two seats arranged in a "side by side" fashion. Many of the parts are interchangeable between the cub and the vagabond.

It would be an interesting difference at a field where there are a lot of "cubs".
BOEING-XL-YL-15 Scout Airplane Radio-Control 28/08/15 06:00:53pm

BOEING-XL-YL-15 Scout by:granddadr

BOEING-XL-YL-15 Scout
The full size Boeing YL-15 Scout was a small liaison aircraft built at the end of World War II. It was a short take-off and landing (STOL) aircraft powered by a 125 hp Lycoming engine. Only twelve (12) were built and Boeing decided not to marketing it as a civilian general aviation aircraft. The twelve that were produced went to the United States Army and were transferred to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Alaska for various duties.

A true scale version would be a neat airplane that very few other modelers have. It should be a stable and fun airplane and depending upon the scale used, would be suitable for electric, glow or gas power.
