    This is the TOP FLITE DOUGLAS DC-3 Twin-Engine 1/14 Sport Scale Airplane.    
    The Golden Era of Aviation Eastern Air Lines replica is IMAA Legal with a      
      fully-sheeted fuselage and wingspan of 82.5". The original airplane was      
      designed for commercial passenger travel, and some still fly today.          
    Makes a good 3rd or 4th kit to assemble for intermediate to advanced builders. 
    This is a great introduction into building and flying a scale twin-engined kit.
    FEATURES: Excellent flying characteristics; because of the engine angle and    
                modified aerodynamics, this kit flies extremely well, even on one  
                engine. (Most models of the DC-3 will go inverted and crash)       
              Precision-formed ABS tail cone, engine nacelles, wing fairings, and  
                cockpit top.                                                       
              An interlocking fuselage frame builds flat on the plans and the large
                round fuselage requires very little carving or shaping.            
              Can be built with split-flaps and the scale aerodynamic "Balance Tab"
                rudder which uses the air deflection to help turn the plane.       
              Includes Eastern Air Lines and Optional Military C-47 Decals         
    INCLUDES: All balsa and plywood sticks and sheeting to build the kit           
              ABS Cockpit Top, Tail Cone, Engine Nacelles, and Wing Fairings       
              Wire Landing Gear, Hardware, and Pushrods                            
              Wood parts to build the optional tail and flaps                      
              Eastern Air Line Decals and Optional C-47 Military Decals

    SPECS:    Wingspan:        82.5" (2095mm)           THRUST ANGLES: (important!)
              Wing Area:       750 sq in (48.4 sq dm)   Right engine = 4° out      
              Weight:          8-10lbs (3630-4540g)     Left engine =  3° out      
              Wing Loading:    24.6-30.7 oz/sq ft (75-94g/sq dm) Both = 6° down    
              Fuselage Length: 55.5" (1410mm)                                      
              Right Thrust:    4°                                                  
              Left Thrust:     4°                                                  
                Note; The box says the left engine should get 3° thrust,           
                that is incorrect-both right and left thrusts are 4°.              
              Fin Area:        70.07 sq in                                         
              Fixed Landing Gear Wire Diameter: 5/16"                              
    COMMENTS: Two .30 OS Max Wankel engines fit very scale-like into the nacelles  
                and produce realistic sound.                                       
              Two .52 OS Max Surpass engines work well with the DC-3 also.         
              The Top Flite DC-3 is IMAA Legal in size, but make sure to use servos
                with at least 45 oz-in torque to meet IMAA requirements.           
              Standard servos may be used instead of higher torque servos if DC-3  
                is not built IMAA legal and also if retract servo is relocated.    
       Flaps: Split-Flaps are recommended and very effective for landing the DC-3. 
    Retracts: Top Flite Retracts (TOPQ8276), Air Control Unit (ROBQ2302), Hand Pump
               (ROBQ2363), 4-40 threaded rod (GPMQ3743), Steel clevises (GPMQ3794),
               3¼" wheels, Nylon ball link (GPMQ3842), Wheel collars (GPMQ4308),   
               Blind Nuts GPMQ3324, Screws (DUBQ3127), and Two #4x¼"(not carried)  
                (NOTE: See the retract identification on how to install these.)    
               * * You MUST use the Top Flite retracts if you want to install      
                   retracts.  No other retracts will fit. * *                      
      Detail: To get the scale Zinc-Chromate color inside flaps and wheel wells,   
                mix and brush on Yellow and Blue LusterKote.                       
              If building the C-47 military version, modeler will need colors like 
                Flat Tan (TOPQ0516) or Flat Dove Gray (TOPQ0511) and other         
                camouflage colors. The military markings are included with kit.

                                                                        JAL 7/15/98
    COMMENTS:  The DC3 modeled to produce this kit was actually               ir/jl
               N#d N18124, not N88808 as accidentally modeled on the original      
               prototype and box photography model. Sheet DC3TD04 includes the     
               correct N #s, in single blue, not 3 color, as the actual aircraft   
               did not have the 3 color shadowing on the N #.                      
               NOTE: In the kit is a "big" Eastern Airlines decal. It goes on the  
                     left wing on top. Per E.L.(R&D)                 JCT 1/16/02
