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).

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.
