    Item Description:

    ******* FEATURED PICTURED IS THAT OF A COMPLETED MAXFORD SPAD. FOR SALE IS A NIB ARF.*******



    For sale is brand new in the box Maxford USA SPAD XIII. I purchased this ARF several years ago with the intent of building and flying (as a replacement for my Maxford Nieuport) but it is time for me to admit that I am just not going to get around to putting it together. I can't speak to the characteristics of the SPAD, but three of us locally had Nieuports from Maxford and had a blast with them. Once dialed in with throws and CG to suit, they flew VERY, VERY well.

    This ARF has been on my basement for about 3 years. The first time I opened the box was to take the pictures with this ad. I have the ARF box as well as the box that Maxford shipped to me in. I will cover shipping up to $50. If it is more than that, let's work something out.

    The SPAD can be set up virtually any way you would like- Gas, Nitro or electric.

    Details from Maxford's website include:

    The SPAD S.XIII was a French biplane fighter aircraft of World War I, developed by Société Pour L'Aviation et ses Dérivés(SPAD) from the earlier highly successful SPAD S.VII. It was one of the most capable fighters of the war, and one of the most-produced, with 8,472 built. The S.XIII was flown by famous French fighter pilots such as Georges Guynemer and Rene Fonck, and also by Italian ace Francesco Baracca. Aces of the United States Army Air Service who flew the Spad XIII include Eddie Rickenbacker (America's leading ace with 26 confirmed victories) and Frank Luke (18 victories).

    Special Features:
    Fiberglass Cowl - true to scale
    Scale-look exhaust pipe, can be linked to engine muffler with optional exhaust manifold kit
    Optional scale machine guns
    Pull-pull rudder
    Comes with steerable tail wheel
    Wings can be easy disassembled for transportation
    Comes with wing wires
    Scale-look landing gear and wheels

    Spec:
    Wingspan: 68
    Wing Area: 885 sq in
    Overall length: 53
    Ready-to-fly weight: about 13 lbs
    Engine Required: Glow 90~120 or 26cc Gas, or equivalent electric motor power system
    Radio Required:  4ch, 5 servos
    *ARF does NOT come with machine guns.
    **This is an over siz item, shipping rate will be based on dimensions weight, not actual weight.
     
    Instruction Manual  click here
    *Note: Center of Gravity (CG) in the SPAD XIII’s Instruction Manual is recommended at  3-5/8 to 4 inches back from the leading edge of the top wing, about 30% of the mean average chord – which is comfortable for many experienced RC pilots (as demonstrated in our Flying Video). However, if you like a more nose-heavy setup, you may wish to set the CG at 2-1/2 to 3 inches back, which is 20% to 25% of the mean average chord.



    Current Maxford price is $389.99 plus shipping (and tax where applicable).

    Many scale accessories (including machine guns and ammo and a scale exhaust manifold) are available from Maxford.

    If you have any questions, please ask. I will answer as quickly and completely as I can.

    Thanks,

    Race21
