BUSA Fokker D.vii Maiden


Another BUSA Fokker D.vii takes to the air. Zenoah G38 and 20x6 Falcon prop at 7000 rpm on a brand new motor.

Probably going with Xoar 22x6 for a little more thrust and climb.

Balsa USA 1/4 scale Fokker D.vii Maiden Flight (6 min 33 sec)



And 3rd flight elevator half failure - 4/40 Threaded rod pulled out of ball link at bellcrank

RobMason,
What field is that? Looks terrific, as wide open as the prairie. The dummy engine looks good, too.

Nice maiden, Rob! I agree with you: needs a pilot.
I'll bet Lothar would be happy to help: http://bestpilots.typepad.com/my_web...ichthofen.html

Pilot is in...

Think he is scale - exactly what a WWI pilot would look like nowadays

Absolutely love it . Definitely fun to fly. Could use a little more power, but that is just personal preference to let me power out of stupid stuff.

Also have a bashed Great Planes Dr.1 and a Funaero Albatros D.II. all very unique flyers.
