Cool, I see you have a Simprop Fokker Dr.1. I have one myself, finding it
underpowered, too. Right now it has a broken tailplane and I find myself
flying my old Fokker EIII. There is also a Sopwith Triplane (Kavan) almost
ready to fly, but I don't like the idea of sending it up with almost 400g and
just a geared 280.
I started R/C flying around 1980, but then I had a big break until three years
ago. I restarted with the FMS simulator, and mostly flew a Light Stick and a
Fokker EIII then.
Pity you didn't put any pictures of your FG models up. What other sources for
WWI cardboard models do you have?
