Here's some info on the first test flight of Butch Witlock's 80% scale Fokker D.VII
(Airdrome Aeroplane) kit plane. Designed by Robert Baslee. Filmed at the
2009 Gathering of Eagles in Gardner, Kansas. The power plant is a
Valley Engineering 2280CC VW with a 2.2:1 gear reduction and a 84X50
Culver prop. Tested piloted by Harvey Cleveland.

(This is the second D7 built & flown using the kit)


I was there too, and help with the test flight. Here are some pics:
