Please feel free to post some pics of your model BHOFM

I found this interesting from Wikipedia .. The Taube was designed in 1909 by Igo Etrich of Austria-Hungary, and first flew in 1910. It was licensed for serial production by Lohner-Werke in Austria and by Edmund Rumpler in Germany, now called the Etrich-Rumpler-Taube. Rumpler soon changed the name to Rumpler-Taube, and stopped paying royalties to Etrich, who subsequently abandoned his patent.

And the first bomb dropped from an aircraft, was dropped from a Taube.

Mine is a bit simpler, designed and built in a day. Run to the bike shop tomorrow and pick up
some tubing and it will be flight ready in ten minutes.

38", 10oz, Emax CL2805, 1300kv, 9X4.7, 12a esc, 5g servos. 2s 800 X2. about 65w.

Need to pick a pilot, Grand daughter does that for me.



Between the landing gear are the tanks for the flame thrower.

Get over the flu and get some decent weather and I'll give it a go.

Ten miles north of me a couple days ago they have wind over 150mph,

Sports Taube anyone ? .. doesn't look very sporty to me

The Etrich Sport-Taube was a one off, single engine, one seat monoplane, built in Czechoslovakia in 1929

When cows fly!
Is that a "Every now and then a pig finds a truffle!" comment?

Looks great to me! I think you can still keep all the formers rounded and use poster board (FT style) to get the curves. Since the central plate runs the length I think I can hook my power pod to that. May just have to fiddle with dimensions to make sure the battery fits under the pod.

Let me know when available please.

The trim looks smashing!

I decided to push the boat out and get the plans printed so I don't have to sit there for hours sticking bits of paper together.

They look far too nice to cut into bits!

Hi jpot, I am sure it would fit OK, would just need the front making a bit bigger and still plenty of room for the battery on the underside

Yes but look at the lovely colours!

I just checked it's half the price! 2.37 instead of 5.50. Oh well I know for next time
