Nieuport-28 EP 40" ARF
The Nieuport 28 was a French biplane fighter flown during World War I. It was designed by Gustave Delage and built by Nieuport, also known as Nieuport-Delage – a French airplane company famous for racers before World War I and fighter aircraft during World War I and between the wars.The Nieuport 28 was the first aircraft to see service in any American fighter squadron. Declared “surplus” by the French, the Nieuport 28 was offered to the United States and was immediately accepted by the American Expeditionary Force. A total of 297 Nieuport 28s were put into service in the 27th, 94th, 95th and 103rd Aero Pursuit Squadrons. Several well-known WWI American pilots, including 26-victory American ace Captain Eddie Rickenbacker flew Nieuport 28s.
This model of the Nieuport 28 is a semi-scale ARF that combines scale appeal with the ease of transport and flying characteristics which make 40-inch wingspan EP models very popular among many sport/scale RC airplane enthusiasts. It is constructed mainly of laser-cut balsa and light ply, and it is finished with a Mylar film covering patterned after the "Hat in the Ring" aircraft flown by the 94th Aero Squadron’s ace, Eddie Rickenbacker.
