Where dream meets reality
Indoor scale flight with a model that performs as well as it looks, the Ares SPAD S.XIII is everything you'd hope for from a three-channel ultra micro W.W.I biplane.
The SPAD S.XIII was a single-seat French biplane fighter that was mainly of wooden construction with a fabric covering and powered by a 180hp engine. This particular aircraft is modelled on Eddie Rickenbacker's SPAD. Medal of Honour recipient, Eddie Rickenbacker was America's most successful fighter ace of World War I with 26 aerial victories to his name.
The Ares [air-eez] SPAD S.XIII is a lightweight three-channel ultra-micro semi-scale model of the original. It features durable foam construction and numerous scale touches such as the 8-cylinder vee-type engine and Vickers machine guns with distinctive 94th Aero Squadron colour scheme. Technically advanced the SPAD S.XIII incorporates a Hitec Red 2.4GHz receiver that's compatible with all current Hitec 2.4GHz aircraft transmitters. For convenience, two versions of the model are available both supplied with Hitec Red protocol: choose either Ready To Fly (including a Hitec Red-enabled transmitter and receiver) or Pair To Fly (supplied with a Hitec Red receiver that's compatible with your existing Hitec air transmitter). Weighing only an ounce, the SPAD S.XIII is ideal for indoor flight or outdoor flight in calm conditions.
