Dynam Albatros D.Va

Seen in the latest copy of RCM&E...

E-Flite, Parkzone and now Dynam - are the Alby's breeding?!!

Seems to be 1270mm span with the standard Dynam 4S/2200 powertrain; other than the extended nose and a slightly out of scale pilot I like it! Weight has crept up to 57oz; that's ~6oz up on their Tiger Moth.

Update - full specs...
Wingspan:1270mm(50in)
Overall Length:1055mm(41.5in)
Servo:9gx4pcs
Speed Controller:40A Brushless
Motor Size:BM3720A-KV600 Brushless Outrunner
Flying Weight:1600g(56.5oz)

The Dynam Albatros is a beautiful EPO foam representation of an aircraft that battled the skies almost 100 years ago. Re-live history and enjoy the unique silhouette of the Albatross soaring the sky. Detailed features even include an engine and machine guns to enhance that war bird effect. The plane may look funny to some, but it packs some serious hardware. A 40amp brushless speed controller feeds current to the BM3720A 600KV Brushless motor. A recommended 14.8v 2200mah Lithium battery provides power to the servos and power plant. At a wingspan of almost 50 inches this bird will impress everyone at your field especially when your pulling crazy spins!

This almost ready to fly Albatros is equipped with most of the essential electronics installed. You will need to acquire a 14.8v 2200mah Li-Po battery, Li-Po battery charger capable of charging 14.8v Li-Po batteries, a minimum 4 channel radio system, and possess basic building materials and knowledge to complete the plane and ready it for flight.

Forgot the Alfa - available 4 years before the E-Flight and PZ. The Maxford possibly around even longer.

Fair enough - I agree a few areas look a bit off - but this version is meaningfully larger than all of those, and will be cheaper too. Dynam quality seems to be improving all the time, and with some care I think this could be modded into a great scale aircraft.

It is brand spanking new; I don't think any of the distributors have any production units yet (though CML never advertise until they are imminent, so my guess would be 3-4 weeks until they are in the UK; YMMV).

I hope that its a good flying plane , but , good grief , the cheaper brands sure are copy cats At least Maxford sells planes that almost nobody else makes .

Like I said though , I hope it flys really well .

Subscribed! I already have both the PZ Albatros and the E-Flite, but I have Dynam's Waco and Tiger Moth and love them both.

Why? One company has success with one model....so everyone else makes the same darn thing.....there are a few WWI planes out there pick something different....bunch of lemmings.

Looks like Germany Uber Alles all over again

This has been a banner year or two for german warbirds, both first and second world war, even the hs 123 god modelled, It is really good to see these planes gettign their due, BUT..... this looks like a foam copy of the Powerline rc albatros thats sitting in my basement, and as such the nose is way out of scale, but it will probably be a good flyer. That being said, will somebody please do a Fokker DVIII

4S is the new 3S haven't you heard. I really like 4S in these slightly larger than parkflier models. Keeps the dead lead weight out of the nose and the voltage increase with a slower motor is more efficient.
Like has been said just unfortunate it wasn't a model which hasn't been done before.
