Worlds Largest RC Triplane - Fokker Dr1 "Red Baron" (Giant scale RC from Gernot Bruckmann) | RCSchim

I was at the RC-Fair in Wels (one of the biggest in Austria). They had a great air-show - here's the first part - the FOKKER Dr-1.
Gaylord Fokker :) No - it's the red baron, a WW1 triplane - never seen one so close and so realistic looking! Great flying from Gernot Bruckmann (great RC champion) who not only flies this in slow scale circles and 8ths - but also does some cool acrobatic tricks with this huge, expensive model. What a sight!
