Redfern Fokker Dr.1


The replicas are built to the original 1917 pattern with small differences in the size of tubing used, and a few safety modifications like brakes and a steerable tailwheel. The aircraft has all the vices of the original - poor ground visibility, and poor rudder control.




This replica of the Red Barons famed fighter is not one of the easier-to-build homebuilts. The fuselage is built from steel tube and plywood, then fabric covered. The wings are all wood and fabric covered. The engine usually recommended is a 145-hp Warner Radial.
