E-flite RV-9 450
|We have found that some of the first shipments of the RV-9 ARF’s did not have the string installed in the wing panels for routing the aileron servo extension leads. Below is a simple way to install a string into the wing panels for routing the aileron servo leads.|
|1) You will need about 4 feet of string or fishing line and a lead weight or nut.|
|2) Tie one end of the string through the weight.|
|3) Hold the wing panel on its end with the root rib facing up and the tip facing the floor. Drop the weighted string through the rear hole in the root rib. You will be able to drop this through each rib until you reach the aileron servo opening.|
|4) Once you have reached the servo opening, pull the string out of the opening and use this end to tie to your servo extension lead. Route this through the wing as shown in the manual.|
The sporty lines and spirited performance of the Van’s Aircraft RV-9 has made it one of general aviation’s most popular homebuilt aircraft. E-flite has perfectly captured the spirit of this plane with this outstanding ARF that boasts true-to-scale lines and, like its inspiration, is an absolute joy to fly. To keep the scale lines unspoiled, E-flite has designed the RV-9 450 with internal servo mounts that are concealed from view. A classy red, yellow and blue UltraCote® trim scheme, cockpit details and factory painted fiberlass cowl further enhance the realism. You even have the option of adding functioning flaps for exciting short field takeoffs and landings. In the air, the RV-9 450 offers a nice balance between maneuverability and stability that will please both intermediate and experienced pilots.
