Description:

We're breaking all the rules yet again with our new Crack Camel! Twisted Hobbys has taken the feel and concept of WWI flying machines and daredevil pilots to fantastic new places. Our customers have asked for us to create a worthy adversary to the well known Crack Fokker so they can duel it out in 3D flying and WWI dog-fighting. With a wide speed range and silly aerobatics at your fingertips, she is more fun than you can imagine. The Crack Camel will not disappoint! Streamer combat anyone?

We have two looks to choose from. The paint on these birds has been inspired by classic schemes; keeping true to the Sopwith Camel's roots.

Like all Twisted Hobbys models, fitment and quality is superior. Building is really a pleasure with the latest 3d printed hardware. The new hardware eliminates excess weight, increases durability and removes unwanted play from all the control surface connections. Depending on how long your build sessions are, this model can be in the air in anywhere from 1-3 nights.

As usual, Twisted Hobbys has taken it's time selecting the correctly matched electronics for the Crack Camel. You will find the appropriate electronics available as a convenient power combo right on the Twisted Hobbys website




Recommended stock setup is 2s 600-800mah w/ 9x4.7 or 3s 450-600mah w/ 8x4DD for advanced pilots.


Enjoy the look of a classic Sopwith Camel with flight characteristics you have only dreamed of coming from a WW1 bipe.

Now its time to take on all your buddies that have Twisted's Fokker Dr.1!


Model Spec’s:
Wing Span = 35”
Length = 28.5”
AUW = 8.2 oz (depending on lipo size)
Recommended Required Electronics:
25-30g 1400-1500kv Out Runner Brush-less Motor
10-20A ESC
(4) 7-9g Servos
2s 600mah Lipo Battery
9x4.7 Slow Fly Prop
Adhesive Glue (Beacon or Welders)


And, here is some video of her in flight which will hopefully peak your interests. Seeing the thing fly always helps, right? In this video I am flying a 3S 600 mAh pack from Twisted and the 30g 1500 kv motor. I love the setup. I have 7g DMG servos all around and it's just a 12a ESC. This Crack Camel is a blast.

CRACK CAMEL RELEASE VID 1 (2 min 51 sec)


I put one pack on the plane, flew her around the yard in 5-10 mph winds, gusting maybe 15, and began video on the second pack. I didn't even trim the plane up yet. Control surface throws are great and she really performs well. The wheels roll right over all the grass in my yard. She never even tries to nose over and she lands light as a feather.


The entire team will be here shortly to help support the model. If you have any questions or issues, don't hesitate. We are here to support our fellow modelers and to make sure you have a great experience.

Crack Camel Build
.
Well.... the wait is over, and I am looking forward to all the potential for aerial dog fight video that will come out of the Twisted Hobbys' Fokker and Camel. There are quite a few pictures above already and a great video by Rolling Circle posted, have a look if you have not already.
.
My build is still in process, but I wanted to share a couple things along the way... and this is the first installment of that;
.
  1. Twisted Hobbys and RCFactory are continually improving their designs, kits and included hardware.
  2. Pre-Cut servo mounting holes as with all TH/RCF Models.... use the recommended power combo or similar sized servos for a super easy radio install.
  3. There is lots of carbon in this kit... several different sized rounds and rectangle strips. Be sure and measure the size before cutting them up.
  4. This model does have carbon bracing like the Fokker and other Lite/SuperLite models, but (again) TH/RCF has knocked it out of the park in this area as well.
  5. If you cut the brace rods to the called for lengths, they all fit right into pre cut slots and once you adjust for squareness and straightness, just hit the buried ends with some CA and Kicker and you are done! Could not be simplier or better designed/engineered... great job..!
  6. The Cowling and Radial Engine Detail... .super cool.
.
Pictures below are just some that I thought you all would find interesting, not intended to be the full build sequence, for that you can check the manual.
.
More to follow in the coming days, always a pleasure to build a Twisted Hobbys Plane.

Awesome news, JR.

This one is a looker and sure flies great. Being made of the super-lite EPP, and kinda like the Fokker, it snaps really big and clean. I can vouch for really nice power on the 1500kv motor. My setup gives you that ability to fly real slow and then just launch vertical like a rocket on a whim.... floats nice too. I'm at about 9oz AUW with a 3S 600mAh on board...

Did a little work on the Camel before taking off for work this morning. Looks like the weather should be nice for a maiden on Friday or Saturday.
