Kit: myself (1:10)
Yep, I did it. I have also changed a Fokker Dr.1 for FMS (great simulator) to a V.8 and it was so much fun to fly I had to start this. I'm building her from 4mm depron and balsa, the middle wing is reinforced with a kevlar longeron. On the second picture, you can see her ride pick-a-back on my battered Fokker Dr.1. The third picture features the UC
(w.o. tires yet), the fourth shows the upper part of the fuselage (made from Selitec(r) which is easier to bend than depron) and the motor (kontronik brushless). Since there are so little photos known of the V.8 I thought I should add a few showing her in flight (350g weight), since I just had to maiden her today in spite of the nasty wind. She will need several modifications, however: The wings must become more rigid, the CG must be moved forward and therefore the UC must be reconstructed. But hey, according to the number of flights accomplished this is not a model, this is the original!! I will add a nice finish (as I hope) when she flies well, hopefully during the next weeks.
