RE: Balsa USA 1/4 scale Dehavilland DH-4 Build
Thanks for the images R8893, my response is a bit delayed, but your help is appreciated none the less. Well, this project has been on-again and off-again. I actually sold the kit I had when I converted my fleet to electric power only. After gaining some experience with electric power, I have some 1/4 scale electric powered aircraft. I took my 1/4 scale SE-5 and flew it at the Blue Max event here in Florida. One of the sponsors of the event is Balsa USA. Well, it turns out, I won the kit of my choice from Balsa USA, you guessed it, a 1/4 scale DH-4, it was just meant to be. I have it here and plan on an electric power system. At least one of the aircrew will be heading hold goggle controlled with an video camera installed in him for a "pilots-eye" view of the flights by someone on the ground. I can also feed the video image to a large screen monitor on the ground. I had started a thread on another site, but decided to post here also, much easier to post pictures here. I have done a lot of research lately and will be able to much more accurately replicate the plane I am interested in. My project is modeled after a DH-4M2P, the "M" stands for "Modernized" and means it is the metal fuselage frame aircraft, the "2" indicates it was built by the Atlantic Fokker aircraft company. The "P" indicates it is a photographic aircraft. The DH-4 built by several different companies in the U.S. and there are slight differences between them.
