PLANE OF THE MONTH December 2023
Arthur’s absolutely superb new large scale 1916 Royal Aircraft Factory Be2e biplane
It’s a classic world war one biplane of two meter wingspan. Originally partially built from kit by another club member, before finding a home with Arthur, who completed it and carried out the highly impressive scale details. It is now powered by a Saito 125 four stroke nitro. The fantastic exhaust manifolds and stacks were all brilliantly made by Arthur, as was all rigging. Ten Hobby King turnbuckles were wired prevent vibration loosening the wires. The remaining fixings were modified to allow adjustment without twisting the wires which are "control line" items.
This plane looks and sounds amazing!
