Tech Notes
 
NOTES FROM OUR TECH DEPARTMENT
    This is the Gold Edition Version of the Mark 9 Spitfire from Top Flite.
          The Mark 9 is Probably the Best Known Model of the "Spit".

FEATURES: State of the art CAD design ensures straight and true assembly Authentic tailwheel location Ribbed control surfaces (looks real when they are covered) Optional retract landing gear, cockpit kit, in-cowl muffer, and split flaps add to the realism 4-6 channel operation (throttle, elevator, rudder, ailerons (two servos), optional flaps (two servos) and optional retracts Selig 8036 and 8037 airfoils

INCLUDES: Die-cut wood pieces Vacu-formed plastic pieces (wing fairings, canopy, cowling,blisters Detailed rolled plans/instruction booklet Engine mount (adjustable) 3/16" wire landing gear (for fixed gear option) Preshaped leading edges Many preshaped wood blocks

REQUIRES: 4-6 Channel Radio w/5-7 Servos 1-Y-Harness for ailerons 1-Servo Extension for Ailerons .61-.75 2-stroke or .70-.91 4-stroke engine Propeller: Depending on engine selected. Four blade prop should only be used for static display 2-3.5" Main Wheels 1-1.25" Tailwheel Exhaust header 2-wheel collars 3/32", 12oz fuel tank, fuel filler valve, 24" medium fuel tubing, " foam rubber, pilot figure, exhaust deflector, prop 3.5" spinner, the manual recommends a "Spitfire" type spinner for a more scale appearance. This spinner is no longer available from Top Flite. Any 3.5" diameter spinner can be used. 3 plus Rolls Covering with matching Paint Building and Finishing Tools

SPECS: Length: 53" Thrust angle: 0 down 3 right Wingspan: 63" Incidence: wing +2 stab +2 Wing area: 687 sq in Scale: 1/7 Wing loading: 25-28.5oz/sq in Weight: 7.5-8.5lbs Center of Gravity: 4-1/8" from the leading edge of the wing Control Throws: hi rate low rate Elevator: 5/8" each way " each way Rudder: 1-1/8" each 7/8" each way Ailerons: " up 5/8" down "up 3/8" down

COMMENTS: Per Robart, the bushings belong in the housing where the air cylinder was placed. They say it offsets a tendency of "binding" the gear legs. There is a gentleman now making longer struts for this kit which will work with a 4" wheel, for a more scale appearance.
