Albatros D.III EP 40" ARF

Discontinued Item
The Albatros D.III was a single-seat biplane used by the Imperial German Army Air Service and the Austro-Hungarian Air Service during the First World War.  It was heavily armed with twin  synchronized, forward-firing 7.92 mm LMG 08/15 machine guns and powered by a 180 hp Mercedes 6-cylinder inline, water-cooled engine (unusual for the time), and its streamlined radiator, mounted on the top wing, was offset slightly to starboard so that combat damage would not result in scalding water being released over the pilot.
The prototype D.III first flew in August 1916 and was quickly recognized for its outstanding  maneuverability and rate of climb.  Like most fighters, the D.III was prone to spinning.  However, its recovery was straightforward, and German aces including Manfred von Richthofen, Ernst Udet,
Erich Löwenhardt, Kurt Wolff, and Karl Emil Schäfer credited the D.III as being both pleasant and easy to fly.
