The Fokker scourge was extremely feared during the early days of world war one and the Fokker E.III was the legend behind the terror.
With its single machine gun firing through the propeller arc, it was the first ever airplane to have this ingenious mechanically synchronized weapon of warfare. Praying on the unarmed and slower spotter aircraft of the British armed forces and using its agile maneuverability and newly designed gun the Eindekker scored many kills over the western front. As the war years went on and aircraft technology developed and advanced the Fokker E.III Eindekker become obsolete and the Fokker scourge was no more.


Our model captures the true spirit of the early WW1 Fokker Eindekker, It has an open framework structure built from quality balsa and hardwoods, a fiberglass cowl and plastic engine covers, a dummy rotary engine and of course the machine gun. 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-bent and drilled aluminum wing struts and U/C legs, carbon tube wing spars and joiners plus a comprehensive hardware pack that includes rigging wire, nuts and bolts, servo horns, rods and connectors etc.



The Fokker E.III has been designed to use either a 35 or 42mm brushless outrunner motor producing 500~600 watts on a 5~6 cell Lipo battery with a 40~60A electronic speed controller. Swinging a 12~14 inch propeller and standard size servos are adequate for all the control surfaces.


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 such as antique Solartex and the addition of scale accessories such as a pilot and weathering this bad little Fokker will really look the part and will turn many heads attacking the British and her allies at your local flying field or RC flying club.

In addition to my review here is my finished model flying:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NsmJkh_8csc

I've now nearly finished assembling the kit but haven't found were several parts are supposed to belong. Several parts are shown in the kit parts diagram but feature nowhere in the assembly drawings. Some of the fits on the laser cutting leaves a bit to be desired especially around the tailend.There are also several parts that have been mislabeled which doesn't help. With decent quality balsa/ply parts, a better design for the tailend (look on the internet there are several different ways people have done it) and proper assembly drawing where the parts labels matched and all were shown this would be a good kit but it is let down by lack of attention to the basics. It would be worth paying a bit more to correct these problems.

I haven't completed the build on this yet but thought I'd post my initial impressions now that I've started the build. The instruction 'manual' is a bit vague.
To try and work out the way the diagrams worked I started by assembling the machine gun. The parts for this are made of the worst quality light ply I've ever come across. The crutch for the barrel is bent and all the lifgt ply parts fell apart almost as soon as I touched them. Most of the parts will be used a templates for balsa parts. Various kegs are also shown but with no clue where they come from.
The fuselage sides and top/botttom are fairly poor quality, brittle balsa with the join not glued for most of it's lenght. This had to be fully disassembled and then glued properly.
The build sequence isn't clear as bit seem to be fitted and then disappear in the next frame. The first picture of the fuselage build shows the formers with just the corner stringers fitted but if you do this you could end up with the fuselage being out of square. I've found I've had to assemble the fuselage, holding it together with elastic bands, to work out how things fit and then take it all apart again to fit the item. On several drawings parts are shown floating in mid air with no real clue as to where they're supposed to fit or what they do.
The use of an IC engine is mentioned but there is no hint of how to fit one or place to fit a throttle servo etc. As I'm intend to use IC (if I can make one fit) i'll be reinforcing the form end a bit and using aralide for some of the assembly. I'm assuming that it is intended to use cyano for the rest although this isn't really suitable for the doublers.
A proper plan or/and instruction book would be invaluable.
Having said all that it looks as if it should go together pretty quickly (once it is all worked out) and produce a nice plane.
As stated in the title this is definately not a kit for beginners unless a lot more guidance is provided on what glues to use and how to install a lot of the parts.

This kit in my opinion is very good. The laser cut parts fit together nicely with no trimming required.
The only let down is in places the instructions could be a little clearer, for example the rear of the fuselage has had a change from the original and isn't fully illustrated. A word of advise would be to lay everything out and study the instructions before commencing.
For the price it is very good value for money especially with all the hardware included as well.
