Do Not Miss This Important Componenet!!!!
In todays RC modelling world of ARTF models where an hours work will see the model completed and ready to fly, it is easy to become complacent when building your model. I always read the supplied manual that is sent with the model but once fully digested I put the manual to one side after all there are usually only 4 or 5 steps in the build process which entails fastening a number of components together with screws or glue. When I received my FlightLine Spitfire I decided to follow the manual step by step after all this is one not to spoil. The build process is easy but I wanted it to be perfect. Six hours had the Spitfire ready and complete including setting up the surface control movements. I always leave the prop off a model during the build and set up process for safety reasons. The Spitfire was now complete and ready to fit the prop fitting. The back plate of the spinner is embosed and the prop locator position and orientation is easy to see. It was at this stage I made my mistake with things being so obviouse I left the instruction book on one side and installed the prop and spinner to the model. On the 4th flight one blade broke free during flight causing damaged to the Spitfire both from prop damage and the ensuing belly landing. The reaosn for this failure was due to me as I had not fitted the metal strenghtening plate. Yes I noticed this was left at the end of the build but I assumed this was a spare motor mount. ALWAYS FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS, thankfully this happened in flight and not near a person, the free flying prop blade coould have cased serious damage if this had hit anyone.
Yup, it's a spinner. It was fine with the correct screws.
Fast service and excellent products
Unfortunately I got an email advising that spitfire fuselages we’re back in stock so I ordered it along with the above to find that fuselage was not included and still out of stock. Now I’ll have to pay twice for postage when they finally come in whereas I could have included it with the above
