The Fokker Dr.I was a World War I fighter aircraft built by Fokker-Flugzeugwerke. The Dr.I saw widespread service in the spring of 1918. It became famous as the aircraft in which the Red Baron, Manfred von Richthofen gained his last 19 victories, and in which he was killed on 21 April 1918.


In February 1917, the Sopwith Triplane began to appear over the Western Front. Despite its single Vickers machine gun armament, the Sopwith swiftly proved itself superior to the more heavily armed German Albatros fighters then in use by the Luftstreitkräfte. In April 1917, Anthony Fokker viewed a captured Sopwith Triplane while visiting Jasta 11. And following several rejected versions of its predecessor the Dr.I was born and was found to be much faster, more nimble and highly maneuverable
On 14 July 1917, Idflieg issued an order for 20 pre-production aircraft.


Our model captures the very essence of this formidable WW1 fighter, it has an open framework structure built from balsa and hardwoods and has a plastic cowl with molded dummy rotary engine. For ease of construction, all the parts are beautifully laser cut and are extremely accurate which will allow you to build the perfect model.


To complete the contents of this superb kit are a pair of vintage aircraft wheels, pre-formed and drilled wing struts and U/C legs, carbon tube wing spars and joiners plus a comprehensive hardware pack that includes nuts and bolts, rods and connectors etc.


The Fokker Dr.I has been designed to suit a 28xx 800-1000kv brushless electric motor on a 2-3s 1300-1800mAh lipo swinging a 7-8 inch prop. 4 servos are required 2x 2g and 2x 5g which are more than adequate for the control surfaces. A 20-30amp ESC is also recommended


Overall this is a fantastic kit and due to its ease of construction, it is perfect for the seasoned builder or those with limited building experience. Once finished in an authentic textured covering 10and the addition of scale accessories such as a pilot and the included machine guns the Dr.I will really look the part and will turn many heads attacking the allied forces at your local flying field or RC flying club.

What an excellent kit for the price. I have built a few Hobbyking laser cut kits and find them great to build with the exception of the instructions, and the Fokker is no exception. I dry fitted most of it first to find the best way of assembling it, and after 5 days, its hanging from my ceiling.
It was built with the intention of simply being a display model, and it just seem a bit too flimsy to put a motor in and actually trying to flying it.
The Hobbyking larger J3 Cub is the next on my build list as the Tiger Moth is out of stock :-(

I found this model exceeded my expectations. You will find better kits and better documentation, but maybe at 6x the price. For fifty bucks, I bought myself four weeks of mildly challenging balsa model building and a pretty good looking display piece to hang up. I didn't buy it to fly, I don't care much about the scale accuracy, and I wasn't interested in spending more. So … perfect! The detailed machine gun and engine mock-ups were worth more than 5 crowns, the plastic cowl rather less. I aluminum taped the cowl and it doesn't look too bad. One of the balsa boards was badly finished but not so badly it couldn't be sanded smooth.

I am an experienced model builder and first sight's good, laser cuts look fine. There is one plan for the wing assembly and some stickers. Who needs stickers for a WW-I warbird?
Nothing for the fuselage in the package. Missing part F26, nowhere to find. F17 was found twice, one of those is F13. The download section here contains a plan, but some parts are not labeled there and not even mentioned in that download plan, some parts not even labeled there: happy guessing. Normally the first part you should start with is A, piece A1 is glued to A2, A3, A4... The labelling is absolutely weird!
The fuselage needs a slipway in my humble opinion to build, to get the model set up straight and everything in line. But there is no side-view? Okay, no problem, I'll figure it out.
When you look at the product-photos of the shell, you see that the wings are crooked and the tail is not in line. I think it won't build it this way
This model is stress, without proper documentation, missing parts and plans. I cannot recommend it, except for guys loving challenges like this.
I love building those classic models, but compleneness is a must, good documentation and a part list needs to be included.

Excellent laser cut parts spoils by poor quality balsa, my kit did not contain any directions for the basic assembly, so I cannot recommend it for a novice builder.i
