Giant Foamie Home Depot Eindecker

Thought I should start a thread on this plane. The biggest I could build, fit in the car and power with my Scorpion 3026-10 (981kv).

Great build! You built one of my favorite era aircraft, larger than I ever imagined.

Thanx. I always wanted one and my favorite club has a Dawn Patrol soon. My Dad asked how large a plane I could design and still get in the car. The Eindecker became the result.

How best can I help? Is it dimensions you need? A verbal description? More detailed photos? Point me in a direction and I'll do my best.

Some rough fuse and wing dimensions would be great! Also what did you do for an airfoil? Is it an undercamber, flat, or just a hand shaped?

Thanks again!
