Early Aces Pack

#23
I was fixing a broken Carbon/Balsa wing for a friend, but now my workbench is clear again.

All rudder connections are done. Still turtledeck and landing gear to do and I'm ready to go.

Very nice builds so far what else have you got planed
You got me.

Depending of spare time, I could do 3 planes from 1916 next year and so on.

1916: Albatros D.II, SPAD S.VII and Sopwith Pup
1917: Fokker Dr. I, SPAD S.XIII, S.E. 5a
1918: Fokker D. VII, Sopwith Dolphin, ....

Is this insane?

Good News,

FB Kite is waiting for its maiden flight

Sadly I had to add some weight to the front, it's now 850 gr.

But look at the tincan wheels ...

Maiden flight FB Kite done.

It was a little bit too windy to be comfortable, but I did it and it was successful. This plane is definitely nothing for the Beginner. There are no dangerous habits, but away from straight and level this plane likes to overact. Trim was okay, just a little right aileron and a little down elevator was needed. Landing is a challenge, with the prop turning slowly the plane tends to yaw.

Time for decoration
