Etrich Taube 420mm Wingspan Monoplane Balsa Wood Laser Cut RC Airplane Kit With Power System
The Etrich Taube, also known by the names of the various later manufacturers who built versions of the type, such as the Rumpler Taube, was a pre-World War I monoplane aircraft. It was the first military aeroplane to be mass-produced in Germany.
The Taube was very popular prior to the First World War, and it was also used by the air forces of Italy and Austria-Hungary. Even the Royal Flying Corps operated at least one Taube in 1912. On November 1, 1911, Giulio Gavoti, an Italian pilots, dropped the world's first aerial bomb from his Taube monoplane over the Ain Za ra oasis in Libya. Once the war began, it quickly proved inadequate as a warplane and was soon replaced by other designs.
