Notes:

150% size simple fokker

It was a bit windy but I've waited long enough so off she went. She flew very well. I didn't use the rudder as my hands were full enough with the wind, but the rudder wasn't needed.

My landing gear is too thin, which I knew, so it will be rebuilt, but otherwise a great success.

41.5", 40% KF airfoil on the bottom of both wings, BP240918, GWS 10x43 prop, 1300 ma 3cell lazertoyz battery, and a second 1000 ma3cell on the other side for balance. Too windy to really tell if this is the prop/motor combo or not. About 22oz AUW.

I'm very happy, and will only get happier. I didn't get to chase around Taylorman's Sopwith Pup as he didn't bring it ( My point in building this was to chase him and the gaggle of SE-5s that appeared on our field).

Thanks to Dickeroo for the insignia. I think the pilot was created by Rusty-Gunn, but I'm not positive. It was from the Baby DR-1.
