G’day Bob,

I’m sure you’re way ahead of me on this. I just received Squadron’s May 2009 Flyer in the post today that pictures the Roden 1:32 scale Royal Flying Corp’s Airco DH2 Lattice-Tail Pusher on the back cover as available. That’s tempting since it’s one of my favorite except I have my cap set for a Wingnut Wing's version and hope it’s not to far down their queue. Smile

 

Cheers,

Paddy

Hi All
 
  just joined the forum, my main interest is radio control scale model aircraft predominantly from WW1 and i saw this heading and thought you may like to see my DH2, its a 1/3 scale Model flown all over the UK and last year to Germany, of again in 2012 too, as part of the national Dawn Patrol WW1 re enactment group see our website dawnpatroluk, any how here goes with my first picture upload
 
 
 
 i hope you like, as i say its 1/3 scale making it 114 inch span at 22 kgs and as such is required of an exemption from the CAA to fly in public as over 20 kgs is deemed to be a small aircraft, it required build inspections and a test flight programe observed and passed of by an appointed inspector done via the Large Model Assosiation on the CAA,s behalf, it is powerd by a 62 cc twostroke engine driveing the 32x14 propellor through a 1.75;1 reduction unit and a 225 mm long extension shaft to keep the motor in fromt of the balance point,this also enables a fully rotating dummy le-rhone engine to finish off the illusion, apologies for the lack of a pilot at this point it was in its test flight sequence and he was still under construction.
 
  cheers all

Hi Paul
 
  the first time out in public will probably be at Stow Maries Aerodrome 100 years of RFC event first weekend in may as part of the Dawn Patrol display team. SM is the adopted home of Dawn Patrol as its the only virtualy complete WW1 airfield in the UK, undergoing complete restoration to its operating days of 1916, the two midlands events we will be at Weston Park model Airshow in june, Cosford Large Model Airshow in July,we will be at many events up and down the UK from essex to bristol, lincolnshire to wales, even upto yorkshireWink and our furthest one will be to Germany near Bonn.   googleing Dawn Patrol will get you our website, and youtube search for DH2 at Stow Maries will get you a video of it flying.
 
  regards
