Got mine. Now I need to make the time to assemble it.
After a matte finish, of course.

Can you tell me if the decals are already applied to the ARF?

Progress will be painfully slow on mine. I'm not home enough!
I do keep looking for someone to post a build-thread, though.

I saw this plane on an AMA 2015 Trade Show video and became interested...

Maxford Nieuport 17

Flew this at the 2015 Arizona Electric Festival

Flys great - will really slow down

I use 100% aileron differential with rudder mix ( will also turn great using rudder alone)

Ground handling can be EXCITING with the tail skid (especially on pavement)

Wheels are weak - will replace with Williams Bros

Sprayed with Testors dullcote to cut the shine

Setup:

Exceed Rocket Motor - http://www.nitroplanes.com/86mc302-3520-1050kv.html

60amp esc with external BEC

3000mah 4s lipo - all the way forward

car1ce - looks like a great model I would like to pick one of these up later this year. How do you get the battery in/out? Is there a hatch somewhere?

Thanks for the post, car1ce.
I'm planning to brush on Liquitex Matte Varnish to get a somewhat fabric look, but I may use the Testor's dullcote on the cowel. I notice you opted not to use the headrest.

I see there's a review on this model in the February Model Aviation where he suggests some mods on the landing gear. I may try that.

kman24 - There is a hatch on the bottom of the fuse in front of the wing held in place with magnets.

I hope I can get this put together in time to fly it this summer. So far, I've ironed out some monokote wrinkles. Gotta get me one of them round Tuits

coolpins - thanks for the heads up on the battery hatch Nice review to check out there, as well...

I didn't see any video link in that article unfortunately. From what was reported, a sound system was installed on the plane that was reviewed. Would be nice to see/hear that setup in action.
