I've got one! Notice anything weird about this picture?
A frivolous birthday present to myself. Every kid loves the Dr 1,
so why not grownups? I wish it somehow had the "real" cowling, but
otherwise it's a good impression of the original.
I didn't expect it to fly particularly well, as most models of the Dr 1 apparently do not. But frivolity won out, and I spent about a week of spare time building it 'just so.'
It flies great! Slow floater with decent general handling, solid hover, and a roll rate that is not to be believed. Its coolest trick so far is a vertical nose-up gyro spin tail slide. Never heard of it? I've never seen another plane that can do it!
If you're beyond beginner and want something amazing, this should be on your list.
