This aircraft has a wing span of nearly 8 feet which makes it very
stable and easy to fly. For transport to and from the flying field, both wing panel groups
can be removed, rigged and complete, with only the disconnection of a few rigging wires 4
locking screws and the servo connectors. All the settings and trims are preserved. As per
prototype, the elevator can be trimmed for angle of incidence. All the rigging wires are
functional and aid to the stability of the airplane. As additional feature, you can have a
functional exhaust and manifold, connected to your 4 stroke engine that displaces the
exhaust out of both sides.
There is ample room for radio equipment, servos and extras
that you would want to add. For ease of ground handling, the tailskid is stearable and
coupled to the rudder bar with wires.
The documentation refers to the aircraft, still today in flyable condition in the
Shuttlewort Collection in England. The scale propeller delivered with the model is
2-bladed but a 4-bladed can be supplied as extra item on request.
The finished model is painted in 1918 livery and further detailing can
be made as per documentation.
