    RE: Parkzone Supermarine Spitfire Mk11B

    I was wondering how fast the spitfire went also. You could put landing gear on it but it looks good o flybys without it.

    RE: Parkzone Supermarine Spitfire Mk11B

    In addition to how fast this plane goes...How well does it roll? Is it like a slow downfall roll or can it be done fast with full aelrons. I mention this because on all the picture i see about the spitfire the ailrons look very small and i was wounderring how affective they where?????

    thanks

    RE: Parkzone Supermarine Spitfire Mk11B

    I get plenty of roll on high rate. Anymore and it starts to look like a toy and not a WWII fighter. As for speed, it will fly slow at 30 mph, cruise 1/2 throttle at 40 mph, and a WOT fly by will be about 50 mph. 60 mph can be gotten in a good WOT dive. Plenty of speed for this scale and size of plane!! These are estimated from experience and confirmed by modeling the plane on G3 which has been very accurate with over 8 planes I have modeled. Also, the speeds from other planes verified by radar performed by my LHS guys, so I know they are good.

    RE: Parkzone Supermarine Spitfire Mk11B

    Well technicaly it is a parkflyer....but It is ABOUT a .15-.20 size airplane. I guess you could fly this plane in a soccer field. Just watch for the poles. I would also like to know abou landing gear. Could you use a servo for retracts through the X-Port. Thank you

    RE: Parkzone Supermarine Spitfire Mk11B

    Alabama,
    Search the Knife Edge site. I have the Parkzone Fw-190 on the G3 sim. I have the Spitfire too, but I haven't modified it yet. I think it would also be easy to do the P-51 because a lot are out there. The Fw-190 in G3 flys just like the real thing.

    Also, these PZ warbirds are park flyers. I have heard one definition is anything that flys 60 mph or less, and weighs less than 2 lbs. I recommend a size of field that is 3 soccer fields. These birds go 50 mph and cruise at about 40 mph. Once soccer field is too small!

    RE: Parkzone Supermarine Spitfire Mk11B

    i know it all depends on your rc flying ability, but i think the spit and fw can be flow within a football field...you can also do it with the p51 but you gotta really concentrate and be quick on the sticks...

    I think you could do it as long as you were high enough and clear of obstacles

    RE: Parkzone Supermarine Spitfire Mk11B

    Just a few more questions. First of all are these planes made of some sort of epp foam or is it just cheap stuff? Also tclaridge could you please try to put the spitfire on the knifeedge site(you might have to make the slitest mod to put it on) because i cannot download the ones that are on it now because they need a requirement of the expansion pack 2 i think so i cant download them[&o]. Also would there be restrictions to fly it in a large school yard (with no kids arrouned[&:])? And finally i was wondering if you were to compare the parkzone spitfire to the parkzone focke wulf what would be the major differences???

    thank you very much.

    RE: Parkzone Supermarine Spitfire Mk11B

    the p51 and fw190 are made with reinforced depron...both have hollow wings with a foam spar...using slightly thicker depron, the fw190 is sturdier and more refined than the p51...the major difference between the fw190 and spit is that the spit uses a solid foam wing...the wing on the spit does not have the detailing of the p51 and fw190...imo, the spit is the best made of the three...

    RE: Parkzone Supermarine Spitfire Mk11B

    Hi,
    I have recently purchased a PZ Spitty (Australian version) which comes with a 5-AP TX (normally comes with Typhoon), not a ZX-10.

    This was a great surprise to get the better 4 channel TX but the manual is written for the ZX-10. Although it is mode 1, and I prefer Mode 2, it only took a few minutes with screwdriver & soldering iron to correct that.

    A further surprise was to find a trainer port on the left side of the TX which I have since hooked up to FMS via PPJoy & SppConsole. Great to get some practice in.

    So that leaves me with the Power socket on the right side of the TX which I have no specs on.

    I read somewhere that this could be used to charge a set of installed recharable AAs.

    Has anyone done this and was there any special charger, voltage, plug that is required?

    thanks

    RE: Parkzone Supermarine Spitfire Mk11B

    If anyone from Park Zone is reading this...I suggest a bf109 next. I think it will be a big seller and it will provide another axis bird to battle the spitfire. BTW- the spitfire is an excellent flyer-the best one yet from Park Zone. Great work guys!

    RE: Parkzone Supermarine Spitfire Mk11B

    Personally I think they should look at planes from the Pacific theater of WWII. The Hellcat or way overly modeled corsair would be great. Or the Helldiver with landing gear and a bomb drop module. Cant wait for the T-28. Still loving the spitfire.

    Good I hope someone from PZ is viewing this forum. Has anyone ever gotten a response from Parkzone. All I got was a auto response e-mail stating that it may take up to 3 days for a response.

    RE: Parkzone Supermarine Spitfire Mk11B

    Flyzrc,
    I am with you. A nice Bf-109 would be great. I only wish they would do a retract in these things. 40" wingspan is big enough to support it, and the Spitfire is so light, it could afford and extra few ounces for the gear without sacrificing scale and aerobatic performance.

    Hey Parkzone! Are you getting this? While I'm at it, how about a nice H9 Fokker to go with that Camel?

    I BELIEVE WE SHOULD BOMBARD PARKZONE WITH EMAILS ON THEIR SITE. FOR EVERY ONE EMAIL IT EQUATES TO A MULTIPLE (MAYBE AS MANY AS 30-40 OTHERS) OF PEOPLE WHO WON'T EMAIL (MARKETING 101). I'D LOVE TO SEE A ZERO, HELLCAT, OR P-40. THEM MAYBE LATER, ELECTRIC DUCTED JETS OF THE 50'S AND 60'S !!! LET HIT'EM
