Flying my Fokker DR1 at the spill way area at East Fork Park at the Loveland Prop-Busters airfield. Top Wingspan is 60"

The model is from http://www.flyboymodels.com - I did some calculation and ended up using a Saito 150 to avoid balancing with lead - it worked out perfect.
I added 2 self built loudspeakers, 1 for a RAM Machine gun Sound and the other with an amplified MP3 Players for the March Music.
I used 2 Spandau 1:4 scale Machine Gun Models (William Brothers) and a set of 7" Dubro Vintage Wheels to add some extra scale details.
It flies wonderful - Like the "RED BARON" Manfred von Richthofen 1918 after teh first flight with a DR1 said: "They climb like monkeys and maneuver like devils."
And it is true for that model as well - it's different to fly than any other airplane and VERY squirly on the ground (hence the wing tip after landing) - The Grass behind the pavement is very rough and too tough on the DR1 Landing Gear so I had to land on asphalt :( ... I might add some struts to it to avoid wing damage.
It is a great flying, scale looking airplane.

Thanks for watching
