After 6 years of Flite Test foamys, the Red Baron flies again! 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.

The DR1 is my fifth build and it went together well. The build experience was fun with the usual high quality of FT kits. I am new to the hobby but the maiden flight was a success even in a steady breeze. The DR1 flies beautifully at low speed and had no bad tendencies. I also have the SE5 which I found difficult to control, tail heavy and sensitive to CG placement. The DR1 is my favorite model and flies like a bird. It flies so nicely I have been able to teach myself ground takeoffs and successful landings.
