The proof is in the flying and after 500 hours of build time spread over 10 months, the new 33% Scale Fokker Triplane built from the Balsa USA kit proves to be a solid and enjoyable flyer! The Zenoah GT80 turning a Falcon 26×8 props is ideal for the triplane and the first few flights […]

Triplane Test Flight Up-Close

Still a bunch of little details to get taken care of, but I think we will be ready for this weekend’s Dawn Patrol event on Long Island at the Sky Hawk’s amazing flying field.
