This item is discontinued but parts are still available in the Parts List below.

The Nieuport 17 was designed by the French as a single-seat fighter biplane in World War I.  It was a very maneuverable aircraft and many British and French pilots began their careers with a Nieuport 17.

E-flite's Nieuport 17 Slow Flyer is an electric indoor version of the French biplane fighter.  It's the third in a line of E-flite slow flyers and boasts a low weight and a more majestic type of slow flight thanks to the biplane design and reduced wing loading.  So you can get to flying faster, the Nieuport 17 comes with many prefinished details, including wood interplane and cabane struts, molded cowling, a simulated dummy motor, and the trim scheme is prepainted and the decals are already applied.

The E-flite® Nieuport 17 Slow Flyer 250 ARF is a fantastic flying foamie with outstanding slow speed characteristics—making it perfect for indoor flight.
