    Spark F3A, from Krill Models - SPAIN TEAM

    [size=3]Greetings to everyone, and with news from Spain.
    We already have the first 2 Spark F3A manufactured by Krill Models and represented in Spain from Cyber Hobbies.
    A week ago I started assembling.
    After having assembled the 90%, I can give a score of quality 8.5 points in this RTF.
    Actually, very good ending, neatly finished.
    The weight is good, being probably in 4780 kg.
    Afterwards I will complet the report for you.

    Best Regards

    Look at the interesting wing on this in the 1st post, the last picture. Curious as to the reason for this design.....

    RE: Spark F3A, from Krill Models - SPAIN TEAM

    after 40 flights I can say to youm it is very effective for the snaps and of a big stability in the consecutive inverse roll. Perhaps, be able to be a rapid plane, but it is possible to control and to reduce the speed endured very well being very stable his line of flight. Anyhow, as any new design, the pilot must adapt to everything positive and negative every design. In general, it is a question of a balanced design.

    I think he is referring to the split in the leading edge of the wing

    RE: Spark F3A, from Krill Models - SPAIN TEAM

    Yes I am interested in the choice of that type of wing, with the split, it adds complexity to the construction so I assume the designer felt there is a performance benefit and I was trying to reason that out.

    Ive seen your video and its clear it performs.

    Its a good looking plane, but that wing makes me curious.

    RE: Spark F3A, from Krill Models - SPAIN TEAM

    Hello my name is Mikael Fedon and i am currently building a Spark in america

    I have noticed that you used a nice mount for your hacker C50 motor

    Which hacker C50 motor did you use

    And also where did you get the mounting hardware and backplate to fit the C50 onto the spark??
    If you purchased the parts WHERE?
    and if you made it Do you have drawing or a file with the drawing


    Any help will be appreciated

    We'll surely wait for an answer from the thread opener, but I'm pretty sure that what the designer wanted to achieve is a lower wingtip weight which should translate in better snap capability (shorter wingspan and higher wing loading at the wingtip), while not giving up overall stability due to a larger wing.
    That's my guess

    Fabrizio, Hello
    Exact ... very guessed right appreciation. There are no doubts. The behavior in flight like that reflects it. We need more flights to do a list of the positive and negative thing. At the moment, the attitude is very good, but this also depends on the personality of the pilot, on his form and style. Only we take 65 flights with this plane.
    Greetings. That's my guess

    Hey guys, I am a rc precision aerobatics flyer. I'm about to purchase a spark, and I wanted to know how the building process was on it? How does the fully composite kit come? If you would like to email me this email me at cajun5426@yahoo.com

    I have a Spark that is close to being ready to fly. Construction/effort is similar to the C-ARF Integral. Details about the Spark can be found at www.krill-model.com.

    The U.S. distributor is as follows:

    Thanks for that Andre, I guess it isn't to hard to build. I'm not to fond of the integral. Is it basically an ARF.
