Albatros DV and Fokker Dr 1 from Robbe

It seems that there is a bit of a competition in WWI warbirds:

Yes, you are right, specs are matching for Albatross. I guess it is another re-release..

They are Green Models RC

I have that albatros DV, in the USA it was distributed by powerline hobbies. It is a great plane, BUT the spinner design was rubbish, my ability to fly and enjoy it was severly limited by that flaw. That being said in the air it is a wonderful plane, flies very nicely, scale speed, looks very scale, just buy some dull-cote or flat water based poly urethane and take the shiny off it

I'm having trouble finding a 50" tripe. Anyone know a valid, updated site that sells a 50" DR1 ARF?

as posted above there is the link direct for Powerline hobbies http://www.powerlinehobbies.com/singleoutput.php?id=325. Appears to be the only place to get it (other than than Robbe I guess)

Hobby Horse used to have them but I checked now and they don't appear to carry PLH at all anymore.

I got my DR1 from PM Hobbycraft (Alberta) but they now only have the Alby listed and it's out of stock.

Thanks Brent.

I checked them out. Long discontinued. in fact though the site is still up, they don't sell/deal with any rc stuff anymore.

Spoke with the owner several weeks ago.

Keep me in mind guys please!

No..you are confused. You mean you want to sell your DR1 to me even more, Brent.

In Europe those 2 are also distributed via BMI Models from Belgium. I have the Albatross in red and yellow. The spinner is really crap. Mine exploded on the first motor test at half throttle. BMI does not offer any spare parts but Robbe will do as far as I could see.

difficult

Holy smokws...trying to find a decent DR1..not easy. I cannot find a supplier anywhere that seems to stock the DR1.

And BMI does not even offer contact option to try to get in touch with them.

If anyone is able to get in touch with a supplier who will ship stateside please let me know..I emailed dozens of European retailers...

As far as I could see Robbe is going to ship to the retailers soon. I guess some online shops in the US are also going to put them on stock.

Forgot to mention.... Robbe is going to offer pre weathered kits of the two planes. Those weatherings are made with an airbrush.

Thank you.

I'll try to keep an eye out for this plane, if you see a retailer stocking it feel free to let me know.

Thanks guys,

David
