After 6 years of Flite Test foamys, the Red Baron flies again! Now made with Master Foam the FT DR1 Triplane was designed to build fast, fly slow and look great both on the ground and in the air. We put a lot of effort into taking a design that is known for being a handful and making easy to both build and fly. The FT DR1 Triplane is a 3 channel slow fly aircraft that can turn on a dime and be flown in a very small location. Loops, barrel rolls, wing overs and many other classic maneuvers are all possible with this little warbird. The FT DR1 Triplane is also a perfect companion for its arch rival the FT SE5, an iconic British biplane that flew the skies and shared lead with its German nemesis. Our hope is that the DR1 will be the source of many happy memories as you take to the skies and recreate epic battles with your friends in your own backyard.
We want you to have an amazing experience both in building and flying, This kit comes with everything you need to complete the FT DR1. Push-rods, control horns, firewalls and all other items needed to make this airframe electronics ready are included in the kit. If you choose to purchase our power pack F and wheels, balance, flight performance and assembly will be quick and easy.

Flite Test DR1 Triplane "Maker Foam" Electric Airplane Kit (736mm)
This plane is fun to build and fly . I made some modifications such as the supports for the wheels and axle are foam board . I made mine from wood of the same thickness sometimes my landings are rough lol . I added a windshield made from a piece of clear plastic and added a pilot from the Dynam Albatros its perfect scale . I added ailerons on the bottom wing and made the rudder stationary I found the plane is a lot more stable and handles well . And I added machine guns using the wood pegs and some foam board from the kit . It is brush painted red using house paint from Lowe's to give it a weathered look and the German insignias are hand painted . This plane looks fantastic and is a joy to fly . The kits you folks sell are top notch and like I said in a post I did on the P 40 they fly better then my more expensive foamies and your kits are more affordable . I will be buying more of these planes in the future keep up the good work .
