The Royal Aircraft Factory S.E.5 was a British biplane fighter aircraft of the First World War. It was developed by the Royal Aircraft Factory by a team consisting of Henry FollandJohn Kenworthy and Major Frank Goodden. It was one of the fastest aircraft of the war, while being both stable and relatively manoeuvrable. According to aviation author Robert Jackson, the S.E.5 was: "the nimble fighter that has since been described as the 'Spitfire of World War One'"

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


The “SE5” is a 1/3 scale design for the WWI sport/fun scale enthusiast based on W.A. Wylam drawings. It may also be built as a SE5a with some changes. It is designed around a Zenoah G-62 with a Mick Reeves reduction prop drive unit (30/12 XOAR or SEP prop). Other engines may also be used with direct drive. Construction is all wood built-up structure and utilizes conventional materials and assembly techniques. The model features a three piece wing design with plug-in panels for easy transportation and the functional flying wires provide easy assembly/disassembly at the field. A 4 to 6 channel radio is required. The plans consist of 6 large sheets and show all structures and templates drawn full size. If you would like to purchase a wood kit see KIT CUTTER'S on selection bar at the top of each page. All sheets are 34 inches wide and 10 to 12 feet in length. Both wings are shown in there entirety along with all necessary rigging detail. Accessory parts available are: a vacuum formed head rest set and vacuum formed engine valve covers (2 covers). The SE 5 uses Dubro 9.33 inch diameter wheels and a 1/3 scale pilot bust.
