Microaces Aero Fokker E.V. Jasta 6 Kit

Microaces Aero Fokker E.V. Jasta 6 Kit

From Microaces:
Flown by Leutnant Emil Rolff 1918

The first Fokker E.Vs were allocated to Jasta 6 in late July of 1918. Rolff was the first pilot to score a victory in the type on August 17th but sadly was killed two days later when the wing of his Fokker collapsed in flight. This was thought to be down to a design or manufacturing problem that plagued the early E.V. aircraft. In fact, to assuage concern, after the E.V wing issue was resolved, the aircraft was re-designated the Fokker D.VIII.

History in the Making

In early 1918 Fokker produced the Fokker E.V parasol winged monoplane. Even though production versions employed the obsolete Oberursel Ur.II rotary engine, the aircraft’s low drag and light weight meant it was nevertheless fast compared to its rivals.

Microaces love of aviation history ensures that the aircraft we reproduce as kits look fantastic on static display as well as in the air.

The Microaces ‘Flying Razor’ comes complete with a vac-formed cowl and a spinning Oberursel Ur.II dummy rotary engine kit, that adds an incredible level of mechanical detail to this astounding model.

The model also employs a linked aileron and rudder control system operating from a single servo. This ensures that the kit retains its distinct flat ‘razor like’ wing.

The dummy rotary engine requires an elongated prop shaft for your PKZ3624 motor/gearbox or use a ‘rotary ready’ Microaces Motor/Gearbox.Parkzone/Microaces Flight PackParkzone/Microaces Flight Pack is recommended for a complete electronics solution.
