This is a nice build, I'm curious how she'll do with no dihedral....

The Fok DRI has no dihedral, she'll fly on quite a way under calm conditions before requiring correction to stay straight on. I expect the Spirit will need constant attention in the air, flown to the ground, like most WWI models.
