Road to Top Gun — Nieuport 28 C. 1

WW1 Biplanes will be well represented at this year’s Top Gun! Teaming up with Builder, David Barry of Sarasota, FL., Roger Niolet of Lakewood Ranch, FL, will be flying this beautiful quarter-scale Nieuport 28 C. 1. Built from the Balsa USA kit, This WW1 dogfighter has a span of 80 inches and is 61 inches long. Power comes from a Saito 1.80 Golden Knight 4-stroke engine equipped with a McDaniel on-board glow driver system. Radio gear is a Hitec Aurora 9 transmitter with an Optima 7 receiver and Hitec HS-645 MG servos. Replicating the paint classic scheme from WW1 Ace Capt. Eddie Rickenbacker’s #12 aircraft, the Nieuport  is painted with Benjamin Moore flat latex paint.

  1. Beautiful Nieuport 28 C-1 , the Nieuport flies wonderfully and looks great not only on the ground but also in the air . I hope he has many hours of enjoyment with his plane .
    I lost my Nieuport 17 C-1 ,1/4 scale Balsa kit , this summer due to structural damage in flight on my top wing .
