I'm sorry, I don't know. However, measurements are given earlier in the thread (this page and the one previous, I believe) that may help you choose the right one. Mine are CJM electrics made for this bird.

Edit: Didn't realize my post would end up on a new page...measurements/discussion on what retracts will fit are on previous two pages.

I got a kit my self. This does not looks like composite but fiberglass. Not that will be a problem but it's information for those who want to buy one.

Hey guys, sorry for hijacking this thread. I'm selling Sierra Giant Retracts for the Top RC Model. It's on the market area. It's NIB. I'm only selling it because I'm focused on another 1/4 scale spit.
Thanks!!!

Not sure if you can get them in the US, they're great

Default Foam EVA Ring?

Hey fellas, hope some of you are still out there. I usually hang on RCG, but not much there like this thread.

I have slowly begun building the v2 version with the invasion stripes. Good deal from Mike, thanks!

There are some minor variations from the original, but nothing I can't figure out.....except what this darn "EVA" foam ring is for. The manual shows it associated with the elevator-shaft hole in the rear former, but as you can see, it is way to big to fit in the hole, and even too big over the elevator shaft. I would think it was to act like a guide or cushion so the shaft doesn't rub or wear on the hole but seems too big either way, so hopefully someone has the answer.

Cheers DSA

I'm almost finished with my assembly. I don't know what that donut is for either. I replaced the elevator pushrod with a fiberglass one. The wood and long metal rods were too flimsy for my liking. I also installed another piece of wood with a smaller hole for pushrod support on the rear former. The original hole was far too large and allowed excessive side play. It's all nice and firm now and the elevators will return to neutral.

Thanks, I think I will use some sort of shim around the hole, maybe try to cut down the O-ring.

I haven't found it, but I do wish there was some communication between the wing exit holes for the servo leads to the gear servo and the aileron-flap servos. If there is, I haven't found it. It seems the spar-tube blocks the path. It would be nice to use one of my custom single-connect MPX connectors for each wing. I guess I could do a single multiport connector to the aileron-flap, and then do the gear as a second connection. Unless someone has done it?

Not much help to you, but mine was smaller, and I used it as a cushion/guide for my ele pushrod. As for servo leads, I have my LG and aileron/flap leads coming in-in separate locations (ail/flap in one place, gear in another). Was looking at doing the multi port thing, too... I'll post if I come up with anything better than what you've got...

Where can I find parts for this Spitfire. I've tried several vendors and did not even get a return email, including the manufacturer.

Hi there :-)

I own the TopRC spitfire with the invasion stripes. Im searching for the cockpit/canopy part and the left wing. Maybe someone has parts left form a crash or something else.

Bets regards from germany

I checked Tower, they don't list anything under spares except spinners and retracts. That said, I would think they would be your best bet customer service wise. Only option I can think of is to call them.
