80 inch wingspan Sopwith Triplane
I guess this post belongs in this thread. Finally, after 45 years of static display and living in a crate, it FLIES! When this was built and flown one time in 1967, they had no idea electric powered RC planes would be so popular. This 80 inch wingspan plane flies great on a Tacon 110 with 7 Lipo cells. ITS ALIVE!!!!
A buddy brought his 1/4 scale Fokker Triplane and after the maiden of the sopwith, we put them both into the air at the same time. When in close formation it looked like a flying staircase.

I took the Triplane and my Hanger 9 P-6E Hawk to a big bird fly-in. The Tripe flew but the P-6E didnt. They had some kind of judging and can you believe it, the Hawk beat out the Triplane in judging? Unreal....
