    RE: ParkZone Spitfire Mk IX !!!



    Hi bray, I assume you are asking about the three bladed Messerschmitt prop discussed above. The answer is yes. I highly recommend you use a current meter if you use the three bladed prop and rig a system on your transmitter to limit maximum Amps to around 35. I also recommennd that the stock 30 Amp ESC be replaced with a 40 Amp ESC. One more recommendation is that the larger props be carefully balanced using a sensitive magnetic prop balancer.

    Good luck.

    RE: ParkZone Spitfire Mk IX !!!



    FINAL FINE TUNED SPIT

    Enjoyed three (3) "Spitfire flying days" recently where the temperature was warm enough to fly dressed in my "Spitfire Brotherhood" T-shirt. I found it necessary to modify the battery compartment so as not to accidently install the battery too far forward. In addition to the marks and note reminding me where to place the battery I finally added a well ventilated sponge plastic spacer for use in front of the battery to force me to place the battery correctly. I had just pleasantly experenced putting up three enjoyable flights with the TF F6F "Cat" that requires the batteries to be located as far forward as possible - habits can be tricky. Thinking correctly can be a blessing. I found it to be very unnerving to fly my Spit with the CG too far forward.

    With my split flap system adjusted a little over 20 degrees deflection down, (flap area is restricted to the wing only - none under the fuselage) that it now seems possible to fly as slow as my F6F on landings. It also seems practical to hang it out as slow as the F6F up in the thermals "motor powered glider style."

    ParkZone's Spitfire is a real winner!

    Out.

    RE: ParkZone Spitfire Mk IX !!!

    Okay, after flying my Park Zone Spitfire and leaving the RC Club, I wasted NO time and went directly to Lowe's Home Improvement right there in Titusville, Florida and I asked them to make me up two colors from the Battery Hatch piece.

    The lady took the part carefully under this Machine with a Light Hub and started Clicking on a Computer Display and in seconds the formula came out to another machine close by.

    Each Paint Sample jar was around $2.98 plus tax! (Acrylic Outside Paint)

    There is enough Paint to last me for the Life of the Model.

    Some pictures....

    RE: ParkZone Spitfire Mk IX !!!



    Thanks for the great tip on touchup paint! You wouldn't believe how many little bottles of partially used paint I have in shoeboxes. When I get serious about real touchup paint instead of all the "fun" I have mixing paint to get a "good enough" match I will be checking back to see how to do it right.

    Thanks also for the great pictures. I also like the looks of a three bladed prop on my Spit and I did get some nice flying performance in tests. After destroying a Corsair with the same prop that also looked great on it, I lost my appetite for the three bladers after that. I now enjoy the safer extra vertical thrust margin on this size fighter that two blade props provide.

    Gotta get back to the fight. It turns out that Lady Thatcher's funeral got about the same treatment as Winston Churchill statue (see below). Today's real battle parallels the original Battle of Britain that saved Western Civilization. Today the issue is over the values that made Western Civilization possible.


    Rolling in to attack.

    Here is a picture of warplanes used to honor the inspirational bravery and gallantry of Battle of Britain fighter pilots who were engaged in the world's most critical air combat in the defense of Western Civilization values flown through fighter plane maneuvers recently over Oregon. The Mk IX was clearly the performance winner and could probably perform nicely enough with a more realistic three bladed prop like what is shown above.

    The smaller PZ Mk II Spitfire made history this year by flying for the very first time in the small area next to my house where the Original PZ Corsair, PZ Wildcat, and Tower Hobbies F6F can be comfortably flown. My Spit Mk II flies first once every year along with newer models that tend to be flown less and less as more and more newer fighters need field modifications and test flying to be brought up to war combat proficiency.

    There are some really great things going on in the media today featuring Spitfires and immortal quotes of Sir Winston Churchill. VICTORY IN OUR TIME IS SURELY UNSTOPPABLE!

    Almost all of NASA's 18,000 employees, including most of Kennedy Space Center’s roughly 2,000 civil servants, face unpaid furloughs now that the Federal government shut down starting October 1st! I have no idea how long this will take for our Representatives in Congress and those in the Senate to come and discuss whatever has to happen in order for the Government to be re-started. On Monday, we had to Shut down many Computer Servers, Laboratory equipment and other equipment and safe all office equipment in case a Hurricane comes around during the Shut down. Unbelievable.....

    So, taking it with stride and positive outlook , two of our Best Central Florida Photographers joined us to enjoy for some needed FUN FLY of sorts at our Moon Port Modelers RC Club (Central Florida) and just look at the Photos that David Hart and Gerry Rivera was able to capture!

    Actually the following pictures are David Hart's Park Zone Spitfire Mk IX that Gerry Rivera took while inflight!

    If the picture I just posted here can be seen please let me know. Maybe those responsible for removing my pictures from my web sites can be persuaded to put them back on my web sites.

    Thank you in advance for responding to my question.

    Just finished final testing of a brand new slightly modified PZ "Plug and Play" MK IX Spitfire with a revolutionary SPEKTRUM AR635 receiver installed. "3D mode" followed by "Factory Default Gain Settings" were programed in the receiver. If this combination works well all of my future fighters and even possibly some of my present machines will be retrofitted with the new radio technology.

    Possibly the most important development is the provision made for a better cooling system in order to enjoy the use of realistic three bladed props. A forty (40) amp ESC burned out at less than 40 amps while running a 3-blade 12X6 Master Airscrew prop that has somewhat better fuselage ventilation than a stock Spitfire. My new Spit cooling system consists of creating large channels angled through the wing to inside the wing radiators and cutting "radiator flaps" edges so that they can be bent down to allow a greater air flow from the inside of the fuselage. Composite material is used to strengthen the wing center. The three bladed prop is now cut down to 12.75 inches and can pull the Spitty straight up on a 1/2 discharged stock battery at around 30 Amps. This is considered to be a nice safe storage charge for Lipo batteries that I always try to regard as time to land. With careful throttle management I hope to enjoy a lot of flying with the stock 30 Amp ESC.

    Rolling in to attack.

    REVOLUTIONARY SPITFIRE MAIDEN

    The revolutionary R/C equipment performed beautifully as advertised today. With the CG located 1/8 inch behind the instruction book recommendation and even when set on high control rates the ship was very stable, smooth, and a pure joy to fly and land. The three blade 11.75 X 6 modified Master Airscrew prop looks great and works very well on landings but it is a little shy on vertical thrust compared to my 40 Amp equipped ESC MK IX Spit equipped with an APC E 12 X 8 prop. The stock fixed gear is bent forward such that the front of the wheels are located directly below the leading edge of the wing.

    The plan is to fly this new Spitfire mostly in overcast/cool weather and fly the older War Weary Spit on those hot sunny days that tend to do unpleasant things to the plane's upper surfaces.

    Rolling in to attack.

    MISSION ACOMPLISHED

    Yesterday's sorties with both of my MK IX Spitfires were joyfully successful. The AR635 equipped Spit flew first and comfortably demonstrated an "F-15 like takeoff" with a convincing roll at the top of the climb out. large impressive loops were easily performed as was the mandatory outside loop along with practice on knife edge and inverted flight, etc. Landing bounced and the prop caught in the grass for an unrealistic abrupt stop.

    The War Weary Spit needed some trim adjustments since it lost an argument under a car and required some serious reconstructive surgery. With its greater thrust several rolls were performed on its vertical takeoff. It was then put through the same practice/tests as the pristine Spitfire. To improve slower landing speed split flap deflection angles have been increased and the "radiator flaps" were cut on the edges and deflected down enough to help make the landing speed closer to that of my newest Spit.

    https://www.facebook.com/richard.porter.167 brings up a sample of some of my latest web warfare that's keeping me pined down a lot.

    Rolling in to attack now.

    FINAL TRIM TESTING OF SPITS

    Landing speed of the stock radio equipped Spitfire was lowered to more closely match that of the new high tech receiver equipped Spit by increasing the adjustable split flap and radiator flap deflection angles. With almost no wind there was very little difference in the control feel of the two planes. The grass was higher than usual but by rolling on better areas of the soccer field take offs and landings proved to be respectable.

    The new Spitfire will probably be brought with other planes in the future to enjoy the differences between the radio technologies as well as airframe differences during the flying activity.

    Breaking off the attack now, heading back to base.
