Spad XIII from Maxford USA

Details

The SPAD S.XIII was a French biplane fighter aircraft of World War I, developed by Société Pour L'Aviation et ses Dérivés(SPAD) from the earlier highly successful SPAD S.VII. It was one of the most capable fighters of the war, and one of the most-produced, with 8,472 built. The S.XIII was flown by famous French fighter pilots such as Georges Guynemer and Rene Fonck, and also by Italian ace Francesco Baracca. Aces of the United States Army Air Service who flew the Spad XIII include Eddie Rickenbacker (America's leading ace with 26 confirmed victories) and Frank Luke (18 victories).

The project to design a radio controlled SPAD XIII was started in late 2009. Our version is based on pilot Jacques Raphaël Roques' SPAD XIII of the WWI French Air Service, SPA48, Aircraft Serial Number S1893. Click here for more background of pilot Jacques Raphaël Roques. This ARF is designed for gas, glow or electric, and it comes with an adjustable engine mounting box and a motor box. It is true to scale to the full scale SPAD XIII.

  • Optional scale machine guns
  • Pull-pull rudder

Center of Gravity (CG) in the SPAD XIII’s Instruction Manual is recommended at  3-5/8 to 4 inches back from the leading edge of the top wing, about 30% of the mean average chord – which is comfortable for many experienced RC pilots (as demonstrated in our Flying Video). However, if you like a more nose-heavy setup, you may wish to set the CG at 2-1/2 to 3 inches back, which is 20% to 25% of the mean average chord.
