Yesterday I visited Chatsworth House Christmas Market and there was a stand selling small free flight aircraft kits from the Vintage Model Company and bought a Sopwith Triplane kit with the idea of converting it to rc.

Does anyone have any experience of these kits?

First impressions are that it is very nicely designed and executed.
