E-flite Fokker DVII

I bought a used ARF and will be making some modifications, including adding ailerons.

I removed the lower wing from the aircraft and proceeded with the addition of wing spars to the bottom of the bottom wing. (3/16" poplar wood dowels)

Build pictures below.

I bought a used E-flite Nieuport 17 ARF and made some modifications, including adding ailerons.

Aileron Servos: 3.7g Servo GH-S37D Mini Digital Servo

The original motor that was installed was an E-flite Park 280 brushless motor and I replaced with the original motor that was installed in the used E-flite Fokker DVII ARF that I bought together with this E-flite Nieuport 17. The motor is an Emax CF2805, 2840kv brushless motor. I also used the old and bulky Common Sense RC (CSRC) 20amp ESC from the Fokker D7.
