SE5a and Fokker DVII

These are three small biplanes I built last winter. The DVII I built twice in two different sizes, based on Comet FF plans which I redesigned for foam and cardstock.

The SE5A was slightly larger (20") but was actually to the same scale as the Fokker.

Took awhile to get comfortable flying these -- highly affected by wind and very sensitive to rudder. The DVIIs are no more, but the SE55a is still flying strong. I've already cut out parts for a new DVII, but haven't had time lately to complete. Probably will do it as a winter project.

I would like to see more, built the Sea5 in guillows kit converted to eflight, nice set up and flyer, can see why it was so popular. Foam built would be super cool to have as an option.
