Description

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. If you choose to purchase our power pack F and wheels, balance, flight performance and assembly will be quick and easy.

Note: This Kit Does Not Include Wheels

i love triplanes and now I'm hooked

Got my Fokker Dr1 first and had it ready to fly with in two days. While i was building the Fokker i ordered already the biplane out of the same series. I could not wait to get the second FT plane, I guess I’m hooked. This planes are fun to build are easy to fly the Emax 2204 with 3S 1000Mah is a perfect motor for this plane makes enough power so that it is fun to fly.

Great intermediate plane

Takes off quick (about 5 feet into the wind) and flies very nicely. Stable and slow but can dive, loop, roll, and speed up if you need it to. 3 cell works best but will fly a 2, just be careful in the wind as it is extremely light. I had it up and hovering right at eye level, which was a sight to see! Took it indoors and flew it inside a full court basketball gym which goes to show it can maneuver and fly slow enough for a small space. Great park flyer!
