Small light foam wheels are the best for the bipe.

If your local model shop can't supply something suitable you could try hobbyking.com. Look under Parts and acc's and then Wheels and Landing gear for plenty of choice of light foam wheels.

Do you guys think this would be a good plane to add a kfm2 airfoil to it??I am not going to try it till i have build the origional first.
BPHohhies has a good selection of landing gear wheels

I would not do a KF wing with a bipe. you would not notice any difference and would add unnecessary weight to the air frame.

The bipe will grow in size once you start to put it together and it becomes 3 dimensional. There is a fair amount of drag with 2 wings and the cabane struts, hence the motor size and I also wanted fairly spirited performance rather than something which staggers around the sky.

Welcome to the forums.
Yours is a very beautiful plane! I have often heard/read "If it looks good it will fly."... Your Depronker should be a perfect lady!

Best wishes for a fantastic maiden flight.

Alan, welcome to RCG. Superb build and paint job on your DB.

I like the rounded windtips which really suit the old US Army colour scheme.

Good luck with the maiden flight, like TonyS, I think it will fly as good as looks. Its just a shame that the winds look a little on the high side for the next few days, but hey the weather forecast is never that accuarte in Britain.

Looks great! It would be hard to pick between a Steerman or a jenny version now.

Did you add wing joiners or dihedral braces to the wings?

Yes dihedral braces were fitted although I am not too sure if Depronker needs them or not. I have always been a bit belt and braces plus of course I like using the fret saw.
