Hello All:

I would like to build one of the triangular Sopwith Camel / Pup sticks. Can anybody provide me with specs, dimensions, drawings, etc? Thanks

Thank you once again. You are either a human Wikipedia or some ridiculously sophisticated AI that masquerades as human…

Truth is that
I fly aircraft for a living.
When I don’t do that I pretend I fly aircraft on my PC or I’m here, talking about it.
And if I’m not doing that I build small aircraft that I fly by remote control.
Unless, of course, I read about aircraft, or watch a movie about them.
I could also be talking about aircraft, with a friend.
When I tuck my daughter to sleep, I tell her a story about somebody flying an aircraft and then I go to sleep and dream about aircraft.

Discobot has more variation in his repertoire…

I wish @fearlessfrog could do something about it, but I’m afraid he considers me a lost cause. :wink:

Once I get to the interesting parts (triggers and rigging) I will post pics.
