WW1 Park Flyers?

I lost the original threads that discussed several WW1 parkflyers, biplanes. I' partuclallry interested in the SE5, but any biplane that era. Can anyone put me on to links for any products or threads. Teh Wattage is the only one I"m familiar with .
Thanks all

Lots of Choices

Be forewarned on the EAM kits. If you expect to shake the box, and have a S.E.5a fall out, your going to be very disappointed. From what I see itís a similar build to the Flight tech Dr I. However the DRI has MUCH better instructions and a better flight reputation.

Other WWI Birds to consider are:

Sig brand Fokker DVII and Scout
Wattage Sopwith Camel and Fokker Eindecker.
Scorpio Nieuport, SE5a and Albatross
Simprop DRI, Spad, and Pfalz.
Kavan Albatross and Fokker DRI and DVIII
D V Flight tech Fokker DRI

There are just 2 many to list individually so I listed the ones I own.

If you do searches on here on each model Iím sure you will find a wealth of information.

Best of luck on your build/choice

Tommy

Suggest you look on web at the Kavan site. In addition to those mentioned they have quite a range of WWI biplanes and Triplanes. Have just completed a test review on the Sopwith Triplane for a magazine here in Australia. Very nice to build and flies well but in my opinion this is not a beginners model. It requires reasonable flight skills to get the best from it and not have problems. It also needs plenty of power so ensure good battery set up. Good Luck.
