Hello all,
Here is my addition to the planes section.
My Fokker DR-1 that has never been flown. It does need new decals as they are faded and peeling up due to age. And it needs a good cleaning. One of these days I'm going to build a display cabinet for all my old planes and cars so I can get them out of my dust magnet shop.

Hello,

The starter spring is not for the reverse rotation ?

It's a hangar queen. As far as the prop goes, it's actually the one that came with it. The Dog Fighter series originally came with a faux wood grain prop.

LOL Thanks for noticing that. I cleaned up the engine on it along with another engine, and I guess I got the springs mixed up. Looks I get the Duh award! Embarassed

That is the correct prop and starter spring. It is a reverse rotation spring and prop. It's just a weird prop, as the rounded edge of the prop is the leading edge.

The Sopwith is the same way. Also the EZ Flyer series used reverse rotation props.

That's because the torque of the engine actually rolls the plane to the outside of the flight circle.

I wonder how easy they are to fly as not only is it a reverse engine, but it also has a pre-set rudder for extra roll to the outside of the flight circle.

Yep. Those planes actually flew pretty good.

They fly really good actually. My first ever Cox plane was a Sky Master but it only lasted a few minutes due to getting dizzy. At one time, I had a Sopwith, a reissue Fokker DR1, and a Cherokee and they were super stable. You couldn't really do anything other than wing overs but still fun nonetheless. The Fokker however, is a little more responsive.
