  Home / Model Kits / Free Flight Rubber Powered Airplane Kits / FF-59 Royal Aircraft Factory SE5

Kit FF-59 Royal Aircraft Factory SE5 is a 1/6 scale, flying model that uses the Box and Former method of construction. Pre-1942 design, eligible for Society of Antique Modelers (SAM) contests. This jumbo model is very popular for conversion to electric or gas powered flight.

Britain’s best fighter planes in WWI were the famed Sopwith Camel and the SE5. The SE5 was faster and more maneuverable than the German fighters and therefore helped maintain Allied air superiority.

This free flight rubber powered kit contains a full-size rolled plan, building and flying instructions, hand sorted printed balsa and balsa strip wood, rubber motor, E-B 12" propeller, EBM thrust bearing, clear plastic for the windshield, wheels, landing gear wire, and Easy Built Lite tissue in olive green and light sky blue. You will need a building board, hobby knife, fine sandpaper, and glue. Markings for this kit are sold separately.

"Motor: 25C 1800 Ma 14.8 LiPoly. It will jump off ground on takeoff. Climbs at about 70 degrees. Fun to fly. I installed a ram machine gun but took it back out couldn't hear it." - Mitchell H Underwood
