Maxford USA 1/6 Airco DH.2 EP 50" Wingspan ARTF
The "Airco DH.2" was a single-seat biplane "Pusher" aircraft, operated as a fighter aircraft during the WWI. It was the second pusher design by Geoffrey de Havilland, based on his earlier Airco DH.1. The DH.2 was the first effectively armed British fighter and enabled Royal Flying Corps pilots to counter the "Fokker Scourge" that had given the Germans the advantage in the air in late 1915. Until the British developed an interrupter gear to match the German system, pushers such as the DH.2 carried the burden of fighting and escort duties.
With a 50-inch wingspan, this RC version is approximately 1/6 scale and is designed to use an electric power system. All control surfaces are directly operated by servo linkages, not by the stranded wire simulated control cables; this design enhances the Maxford USA DH.2's true-to-scale looks and maximizes ease of assembly and accuracy of control.
