Bi Planes

I was on two or three threads on the PZ Albatross and there was talk about other brands of Bipes so I thought I would start one for discussion all Biplanes.
So Have at it guys.
I have two, the Hobby Lobby WACO which is discontinued and the PZ Albi which I am still assembling.[ATTACH]Name: 101_2247.jpg

I like the scale stuff personally. I got my Cutie Bipie out of mothballs for some flight time again. Better known as the Beastie Bipie. Otherwise...this most of what I have/had...

I like the moth in the rear of your last picture. I'm also a fan of the neiuport. I'm glad that kidagain started this thread as it hopefully will attract a few good bipe enthusiasts to post what they have and give me more ways to shovel money out the door.

The moth looks like it might be twitchy.. Is it?

I love the look and feel of a biplane in the air. I have the PZ Albatros & SE5a as well as the FZ Micro SE5a & Tiger Moth....all are a blast to fly.

A biplane thread is a good idea. Will post some pictures soon.

The biplane in my avatar us my 1/5 scale Pica Waco YMF-3: 72" wingspan, 14 lbs, Dualsky outrunner that is a 1.8-2.4 equivalent, 8s 5000 power.

Larger picture attached. I also attached one of my small original design semi scale Curtiss flying boat, taken at an indoor float fly in years back.

Plus two pictures of my 1/8 scale Hobby Lobby Pilot 1 Waco YKS-6.

All great flying models!

Let's get the term correct though....biplane, not bi plane or bi-plane...

I'm rockin the albatros, S.E.5a, peaks, umx beast, and waiting on the tigermoth. Could you post a picture of the micro S.E.5a and make a few comments on it?

Hey, exit 168 here....just up the road from you. The FZ SE5a is a fun plane but it is fragile. I fly it at an indoor club armory however I did fly it at the NEAT Fair's Dawn Patrol and it was a blast...great range using the RTF Tactic transmitter.

Most Moths are very docile and easy to fly, some say to docile.
