I dunno , it could of been an unkown german type of camo , a one off experiment. It looks good, just add a white rudder and put crosses on, and fly on.

That's exactly what i thought after having added the design, but it was unintentionally. Darker "military" colours and it would be perfect camo.

Peace man.

Perfect flyer.
Thanks Thomas for this fine plane.
Looking forward to do some dogfight against Eddie/Otto at Inter-Ex 2015.

Superb decoration! Same for me, my decoration will be a "non war" scheme. I keep my own idea secret but suggest for others: Dick Dastardy, Bart Simpson, Adam's Family members, Batman, .... A lot of comics will do the trick!

Just curious...but will there be plans made of the Triplane? It is a very good looking plane. Thank you for sharing the wonderful biplanes.

Tripes


No plans needed for the triplane, it is nearly identical to the bipe.
Wing chord is reduced to 16cm, span is 60, 56, 52cm top to bottom. Trailing edge position of bottom wing is same as on the bipe, stagger is 5cm between each wing. Middle wing sits on fuselage top which is slightly modified so that middle wing has same angle of attack as bottom wing. distance between wings is approx. 8cm. All angles and CG are the same as on the bipes.

I managed to squeeze the parts for the Eddie onto half a sheet of Depron. Off to test cut on the laser now.

Thanks for posting, Michael.

Excellent flying and colour scheme, Manu!
If you want some combat - it`s just 150km to Cologne...

I am searching ennemies in my region sky and trying to convince friends to build Eddie but if I don't find, I could head to Cologne indeed ...
