the DH71 is one my own but not OD! It is a JB Aviation model and
I have had a life long (63 now!) fascination and admiration for
de Havilland aircraft and the DH71 is a good example of their
philosophy. The model is 1/5 scale, weighs about 6lbs and is powered
by an OS Surpass .52.
love building models and only wish that I was as accomplished
a pilot as I am a builder. After 50 years of flying models through
the usual Free Flight, Control Line, thermalling, sloping route,
I've been flying R/c for about 20 years. I can manage steady models
like the J3 Cub, vintage and the like but I'll never be able to
handle fast aerobatic stuff. I've stopped trying and settle these
days for relaxed flying. Current project is Ben Buckle Falcon.
1937 design, 96" model which I will fit with a Laser 70.
another couple of my favourite models. Junior 60 has an SC .30
whilst Cub has another of my Surpass .52's. Lovely engine!
