EINDECKER SHIPPING INFO- PLEASE CLICK
 

In 1915, Anthony Fokker designed an aircraft which was so deadly, it came to be known as the "Fokker Scourge!" Today, SR Batteries has created a new  IMAA legal 1/4 Scale Warbird destined to become the next "Fokker Scourge!" Our new Eindecker E1.

A GIANT, Giant Scale aircraft... With a wing span of 100" and a wing area of 1700 sq. in. the E1 is huge, but easily transportable and sets up at the field with only 4 screws in less than 5 minutes! The fuselage is only 67" long and the plug in 2 piece wing makes the E1 a breeze to transport and store. At only 16.5 lbs. it's also light as a feather for its size.

This is an aircraft that you'll be proud to build and fly with superb flight characteristics. From the ground up it was designed for "Low & Slow" flight. The E1 flies like a big "Cub" and beginners and experts alike will love it. In fact, the E1 is the perfect, first Big Bird aircraft if you're new to Giant Scale.



The reviews are starting to come in!  Here's what people are saying about the SR Eindecker E1 Kit:

Model Aviation Magazine, October 2005 issue:

  • "In approximately 45 years of building models, I (Paul Vliet- the reviewer) have never assembled a kit that went together as perfectly as SR's E1."
     
  • "The design efforts were outstanding, incorporating many laminated and interlocking parts that add much to its strength and lightness. The laser-cut parts were outstanding."
     
  • "The balsa and plywood were top quality. The hardware was top-notch."
     
  • "The pieces literally fell out of the balsa-part sheets and popped out of the plywood sheets with virtually no effort. The fit of these components required no alteration on my behalf; they went together as well as the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle."
     
  • "Landing the Eindecker was as easy as, or maybe easier than, landing a trainer."
     
  • "This aircraft is a terrific choice for a first-time Giant Scale-model builder. Its flight characteristics are gentle, yet it is capable of all the scale maneuvers one would expect from the full-scale World War I fighter."


Model Airplane News Magazine, June 2005 issue:

  • "The Eindecker is so easy to fly that any pilot will feel comfortable with it."
     
  • "Antique look... modern flight performance!"
     
  • "The Eindecker E1 is a joy to build. It's also easy to assemble and disassemble at the field and has great flight performance."
     
  • "In the air, its size and scale flying speed will surely impress other pilots."
     
  • "This is a terrific scale WW1 plane and it will do all of the maneuvers that the full-size plane could do."
     

RCM, February 2005 issue:

  • "I found the Eindecker to be very stable and predictable in everything it did. Stalls were very gentle and it didn't take long to get completely comfortable with the airplane."
     
  • "Building the SR Eindecker is an experience that will satisfy both the intermediate and experienced builder/flier. Because of its simplicity and fast building techniques it presents a great way for the newcomer to get started in giant scale."
     
  • "As a builder you can be proud to know that the SR Eindecker E1 has great flight performance with built-in simplicity and responsible engineering to make it a superb airplane to build and own."

With careful loading, one of our customers, Tom Pfarr, found that he could even transport his SR Eindecker E1 in a Honda Insight hatchback! Way to go Tom!!!

Another one of our customers, Tim O'Mahony, also sent us pictures of his SR Eindecker E1. Click on any of the pictures above for a larger view. We think that it looks awesome! Here's what Tim had to say about his SR Eindecker E1:

"Well, I finally worked all the kinks out and got my first full flight in today. The Eindecker performed flawlessly! After 5-6 minutes at altitude getting a feel for her, I spent the next 5 minutes or so shooting touch and goes and low fly-bys. It was awesome.""As far as ease of flying, I would say that it would make the best trainer I have ever flown. Slow, stable, what more could you ask for? The only rough landings and touch and goes I had were from me trying to horse it around. If you just let it go, it will grease the landing every time."


 

Have it your way!
As far as we know, our Eindecker E1, rather than being a "conversion," is the first kit to be designed from the ground up for Gas, Glow, or ELECTRIC power systems. You're assured of superb flight performance regardless of the power system you prefer.

Over the last 20 years, SR Batteries has helped write the book on electric flight so it's not surprising that we'd be the first ones to create a Giant Scale electric warbird the way it should be done.
