Sopworth Camel Kit

The Sopwith Camel was a British WW1 single seater fighter and first saw service at the Western Front in 1917. It was manufactured by the Sopwith Aviation Company of Kingston -Upon-Thames and used a rotary aero engine and had twin synchronized Vickers machine guns firing forwards through the propeller arc.

Though difficult to handle it was extremely maneuverable in the hands of an experienced pilot and was credited with shooting down 1,294 enemy aircraft, this was more than any other allied fighter.

Our model captures the very essence of this formidable WW1 fighter, it has an open framework structure built from balsa and hardwoods and has a fiberglass radial cowl with plastic molded dummy rotary engine and authentic looking rigging wires.

For ease of construction, all the parts are beautifully laser cut and are extremely accurate which will allow you to build the perfect model. Also included is a plastic molded cockpit surround with simulated padded cockpit coaming and left and right-hand front plastic molded fuselage fairings which simulate the aluminum side panels on the full size aircraft.
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 Sopwith Camel has been designed to use our PO-5055-595 brushless outrunner motor on a 4S lipo swinging a JXF 15x7 prop or the equivalent gas/nitro engine.

4 standard size servos are more than adequate for 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 and olive drab Solartex and the addition of scale accessories such as a pilot and machine guns this Camel will really look the part and will turn many heads attacking the Hun at your local flying field or RC flying club.

Glue, radio equipment and covering material is required to complete.
