    Item Description:

    This is a Claud Christ-Built DR1 Triplane (94 Top wing). Very rare pallett scheme modeled after Ernst Udet of the Famous Flying Circus JG 1 Squadron.

    Flight Characteristics: Very docile. It's a Triplane but it actually has decent tendencies. Massive rudder control. And surprisingly good roll rate. 37lbs. And with the motor set up, it climbs like a chimpanzee. Very fast at full throttle (For a WW1 bird). You will see in the video as I fly with Mike, he has the same set up on a 42lbs. D7 and I have to fly 40% throttle to slow down for him.

    You can view on Youtube here:

    Meticulously built the model includes:
    IFlyTallies Custom Machine guns with belts.
    Custom painted pilot.
    Solartex covering with fantastic paint job.
    G62 with a Toni Clark Custom 2.5:1 Geardrive.
    Swings a scale 34 Prop.
    Custom Can Exhaust. (With it all, it sounds wonderful)
    Hitec Hitec HS-5685MH High-Volt High-Torque Metal Gear Servos
    Independent Receivers. One for the Fuse and one for the top wing. No servo wires.
    Spektrum7000 receiver for Fuse and Wing.
    Pull pull scale elevator.
    Detailed and scale to show.

    I have flown it for a few months and it is amazing. Took to Eureka and flew about 10 times. without a hitch.

    Selling for $4,500
    Cannot ship. Willing to drive a decent distance.
