The Parkflyers RC Spitfire Plane Owns the Sky

Written by Jason Scott. Posted in Gadgets, RC Zone

An Actual Scale RC Version of the famous WW2 Supermarine Spitfire Plane

The Supermarine Spitfire Plane was a British fighter aircraft in service throughout the Second World War and beyond. A Much loved Aircraft by its pilots, the Spitfire was employed in several roles, including interceptor, photo-reconnaissance, fighter-bomber, carrier-based fighter, and trainer.

This Electric R/C Flier is a perfect representation of the Spitfire with extraordinary artwork.

The Spitfire is controlled by a 2.4GHZ spectrum technology radio/receiver system that blocks out any interference from other RC Pilots. This allows you complete comfort when performing the planes aerobatic movements like inside/outside loops, axial rolls, inverted flight, knife edge, stall turns, hammerheads, and spins.

Also included in the electric R/C plane’s arsenal of state of the art components are: a Brushless Outrunner High Torque Motor, Sensorless 20 amp Brushless Speed Control, and 1300mah 11.1 Volt Li-Po Battery Pack, and more.

The Anti-wind performance is good, allowing you to take off the Radio Control system completely during up-wind flight. lighter than other electric RC models of the same size and style, the spitfire’s lifting force is strong, while its glide is extremely stable.

The Rudder Facilitates easy lift off by aiding the steering of the plane while grounded.

Constructed with A Shock Resistant Reinforced fuselage with Strong Wings, the Spitfire can suffer a few hard landings without going Kamikaze.

Re-enact the Battle of Britain, or Pear Harbor, It just up to your imagination

Features:

  • Motor- Brushless 1200,
  • Radio: 4 chan 2.4 Ghz,
  • Servos- (4) Sub-micro,
  • Charger: A/C Peak 2-3 Cell,
  • Battery- 1300 mah Lipo 11.1v,
  • ESC: 20 Amp Brushless, Range- 4000 Feet
  • Wing Span- 35 inches,
  • Length- 32.5 inches,
  • Weight- 24 ounces,

What Do These Features Mean?

Radio: Digital Spectrum Technology is state of the art for radio control systems. A Globally Unique Identification Code (GUIC) is assigned to every radio transmitter when its made. The receiver is programmed to identify the unique code in what is called the ‘binding process’ essentially binding or locking the transmitter and receiver together when they turn on. This blocks out other codes or radio signals that could interfere with your aircraft causing it to crash. DSM technology also has a faster response time from the transmitter to the plane than PPM or PCM Radio systems, allowing for better control on 3D Acrobatics.

Motor: Brushless motors can be up to 300% more powerful than brushed motors since they work without friction, this means they last longer as well.

Kv Rating: Refers to Revolutions per Minute (RPM) per Volt, so the 1200Kv motor powered by the 11.1v Li-Poly battery (Li-Po) will yield 1200 x 11.1 = 13,320 RPM with no load

Li-Po: Stands for Lithium-ion Polymer (Li-Po) The newest major development in RC battery cell technology. Offering more power, and longer run times than NiCD and NiMH. Li-Po batteries have dramatically transformed the face of electric rc flight to the point where they are competing with Nitro fueled planes.

Electronic Speed Controls or ESCs, plug directly into your aircraft’s receiver throttle slot as opposed to linking to a servo. ESCs allow the maximum voltage through dependent on on the throttle stick position. The micro-processor in an ESC opens and closes tens of times a second to let the current pass, creating a much more efficient speed control than older mechanical versions

Servos: Generally each “Channel” controls a “servo”, and each “servo” controls a “Control Surface”. The Smaller and more accurate the servos, the better the performance of the aircraft.

Control Surfaces:

The Four Primary controls of an airplane are:

  • Throttle (motor control, or speed control. Think of propeller)
  • Elevator (Hinged section of the back of the tail that move up and down, when they are up the nose goes up for climbing, when they are down the nose goes down for diving. This is known as the pitch altitude)
  • Ailerons (Hinged sections of the back of the Wing for rolling. One side goes up while the other side goes down, this causes the roll motion)
  • Rudder (The Tail’s “FIN”). Used for steering, if the rudder turns left the plane foes right and vice versa)

These are collectively known as control surfaces, these are the same as those found on real airplanes and control the RC model in exactly the same way.
