Sopwith Camel Update — Build-Along Part 31

So, after an exciting, yet informative test flight, I found that we had a very nose-heavy condition, even though from the plans, I had the model balanced at the 25% MAC position. So much for the theory. With the Camel back safe and sound in the workshop, I have since moved the CG back to the […]

Workshop Build-Along — Sopwith Camel Part 30 — Test Flight with Video

Well after a long and enjoyable build-along series, I finally got the Sopwith Camel test flown at the recent 40th Annual Father’s Day Fun Fly in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.
