Russell Holmes flew this New tiny E-flite Nieuport 17 on a very windy Saturday afternoon.
The Eflite model is stock with a Park 250 motor and speed controller – But Russell
added Ailerons for amazing aerobatics that only Billy Bishop would be proud of.
A Canadian Legend and VC winner Billy’s Bishop was easy to find in the sky’s of France with his famous
blue nose Nieuport 17.  Russell even cut out Billys profile and glued  him into the cockpit.
No Parachutes for these guys!  You can almost see that Lewis gun firing if you squint!
