EFL1975
The Fokker DVII
RRP


Designed by Reinhold Platz, the Fokker DVII made entered service early in 1918. This advanced new German aircraft was fitted with either the powerful BMW inline engine which developed some 185hp, or the slightly less powerful 160hp Mercedes six cylinder inline engine. Approximate speed for these two versions was 124mph and 117mph respectively.

The D7 was for it's time probably the finest operational fighter aircraft of any nation. The machine was fast and possessed a good rate of climb especially with the BMW engine. The D7 was also a fairly easy plane to fly compared to its contemporaries, due in part to the lack of rotating mass from its inline engine that did not affect handling as much as the more commonly used rotary engines.

Fokker DVII biplanes reached the Western front in April 1918, first examples being delivered to Jagdgeschwader 1 an elite unit of German fighter aces under the command of Manfred Von Richtofen, better known as the Red Baron’s “Flying Circus” It was with this unit that Ernst Udet became the second-highest scoring German flying ace of World War I with 62 victories, second only to Richtofen his commander.

EFL1975 Fokker DVII 250

E-flite’s continues its range of indoor slow flyers with this superb vacuum molded, lightweight foam version of the famous German Fokker DVII biplane fighter of World War One.

Presented in the markings of Ernst Udet’s personal aircraft this delightful model features one of the brightly painted colour schemes used by the aircraft of Jasta1, more commonly known as the Red Baron’s “Flying Circus”

The bright red fuselage is complimented by Udet’s personal emblem "LO!" on the fuselage (in honor of his fiancée Eleonore Zink), dummy Mercedes engine, open cockpit and Spandau machine gun, whilst the red and white candy striped upper wing complete the look. The pre-painted wooden cabane and interplane struts are simple to install as is the pre-bent landing gear that comes complete with light weight WW1 type wheels.

Reinforced control horn mounting plates for the rudder and elevator ensure that the control horns stay in place (often a weak area in some foam models) and the carbon reinforced horizontal stabiliser adds increased strength and rigidity.

Designed to fly with an outrunner motor, Eflite’s Park 250 makes a perfect choice and provides more than enough power for this semi-scale biplane and a 2S 7.4Volt 430mAh Li-Po battery provides more than enough duration for indoor dogfights and on very calm days the model is stable enough to be flown outdoors.

E-flite’s legendary hardware pack and assembly guide complete this super little model!
