If triplanes are a rare sight at most flying fields, 65%-scale ones are a rare treat! This terrific video features Steve Carr’s first public flight of his new Dr.1 Triplane at the Large Model Associations East Kirkby Show in Great Britain. Built from the Bill Hemple ARF package, this model has a 15.75-foot wingspan and is powered by a 550cc engine that Steve designed. The plane uses four Multiplex receivers (one in each wing and two in the tail) and 13 Hitec 44KG servos. Thanks to Essential RC for taking this video and sharing it with us.
