For sale a Dynam 1200mm Spitfire in excellent condition with functioning split flaps.
I decided to install flaps on this model, but wasn’t keen to hack into the trailing edge of the wing, being the recommended option from Dynam. Apart from damaging the finish and look of the plane, it isn’t authentic as the real-world Spitfire has split flaps. The split flaps I installed are from Quarter Grain balsa sheeting that’s both stiff and light, hinged with Dubro nylon hinges to a balsa quad that’s glued in a channel on the underside of the wing.
The plane’s had a total of 4 flights and is in excellent condition. The plane flies very scale and looks great in the air, while the flaps work well to slow it for landing, which has become the most enjoyable part of flying this model. A rare claim for a Spitfire! Pleasingly, there was no need for any elevator mixing with the plane remaining quite neutral when flying with flaps. The plane’s never had a hard landing and the flaps also work to take stress off the landing gear.
Included also is a spare 3 bladed propeller and wing mounted guns that came with the kit and the manual.
Being sold PnP without Receiver and Battery. Reason for sale is that I’m focussing on larger models.
