Sopwith Camel from HobbyKing


The H-King Sopwith Camel is a beautiful replica of this well-known World War One biplane fighter. It is built from balsa and film and has molded plastic parts for a realistic look.

The Sopwith Camel was a British WWI single-seat biplane fighter that was introduced to combat in 1917. Like most planes of this era, it was made of a wooden box-like structure covered in fabric. It had a rotary engine that gave it some unusual maneuverability. It also had twin Vickers machine guns firing through the propeller and was a very successful fighter although not the easiest to control for inexperienced pilots. As well as being used by the Royal Flying Corps it was also flown by the Royal Naval Air Service.

As a PNF model the H-King Sopwith Camel comes with pre-applied covering film and stickers plus the molded plastic cowl, guns and wheels provide a very realistic look. All electrics come pre-installed including a 2212-1000KV motor, 20A ESC and 4 x 9g servos. There is some building to do such as fitting the wings, rudder and wheels before flying can be done. You will also need to supply a 2200mAh 3S battery and radio system to get it flying.
