This great looking ARF is sure to become very popular! The SPAD XIII was loved by its pilots as it was known for its sturdiness.

The project to design this RC SPAD XIII started in late 2009. It is based on pilot Jacques Raphaël Roques’ SPAD XIII of WWI Franch Air Service, SPA48, Aircraft Serial Number S1893. It is designed for both gas and glow engine or electric power, and it comes with an adjustable engine mount and motor box. Special Features include: Fiberglass Cowl, Scale-looking exhaust pipe that can be linked with engine muffler with optional upgrade kit, Optional scale machine guns, Pull-pull rudder control and a steerable tail wheel and Scale landing gear and wheels
