E-flite has just added another model in their series of fun, slow flyer WWI era biplanes. The JN-4 Jenny and S.E.5a were the first two. Now they have announced a very realistic-looking Nieuport 17 250 ARF. A prepainted, vacuum foam-molded airframe makes it very light and very easy to build. This Nieuport is designed around the E-flite Park 250 outrunner motor and will offer RC modelers a scale model WWI biplane that puts smiles on the faces of everyone. It is an ARF model, so the builder will have to supply a brushless motor, electronic speed control, and battery to complete the assembly.
E-flite product developer John Redman is with us to outline the features this airplane offers to modelers of all skill levels.
