Fokker DR1 Triplane (oz2011)
About this Plan
Fokker D.R.1 Triplane. Scale free flight German WWI fighter model. The plan has details for sprung langing gear and a pendulum controlled elevator. Scale is 1/7.
Supplement plan: this is a modern redrawn plan in PDFvector format, by hogal.
Quote: "The Triplane is a free flight scale designed model by PE Norman. The designer's name speaks for itself as far as accuracy and functionality are concerned. The model is designed for 2.5 to 3.5 cc motors turning nothing less than an 11" x 6" prop, certainly a nice diesel with loads of torque is being asked for here. Trimming such a plane would call for the utmost patience and dedication, or would three or four channel radio be better. As always with my drawings they are tracings from scans of the original prints and so may contain inaccuracies. If you choose to build from them please take care."

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

ScaleType: This (oz2011) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.
If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.
ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fokker_Dr.I
Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
