Skylake Models Nieuport 11 #12 Free Flight to RC Flight Kit Bash Contest >> Droptank


The Skylake Models Nieuport 11 is my entry in the free flight to RC contest.

Here is the link to the original thread.
https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1755366

This is my first free flight to RC conversion. I will be using the brick from a Champ for elevator and rudder control. I'll either use the brick from the Champ I have or buy one. I don't really want to hack up my Champ.

I'm a big fan of everything biplane - so this build will be definitely watched!
The cool thing about these old planes is that even the originals were basically stick and tissue builds. Sometimes much more fragile than our builds.

This is too big to upload... and too pretty to downsize.
Provided for your inspiration... and my hope to see you duplicate the photo with your build.

Thats a nice looking Nieuport. Thanks for the pic! When you order a kit, they will email you a file so you can print your own tissue. I have never covered anything with tissue. It shouldn't be too hard. My concern is will my printer print it and will the the color run. I'll send Skylake an email to see if they can tell me if my printer will work.

Ideally you want to use a printer with water proof ink. The Epson C88 can be had cheap and uses water proof Durabright ink.

This kit looks like a great candidate for conversion.

I have a Canon MX410. It's an inkjet printer. Seems I read laser printers are best for printing tissue.

No time to build so I'm going to close the thread. I may put it in the classifieds.
