Beringer Spitfire .
« on: June 17, 2016, 09:11:45 AM »
Have a old Aeromdellor u.k. magazine , from about 82 .

In the British Nationals ?? report theres a picture of G Beringer - Spitfire . ' Spitfire ' is in high case , inverted , on the Fuse . Looks like its Siver , maybe red script.

ANYWAY , Just fell over this on the Google Pics . Looks to be the same plane ? His original 80s one was ST .46 . Been meaning to post that pic here . Youll have to settle for THIS , for now .



or maybe it was Jack Sheeks one all along .  :-\

Forsooth ,
Gilbert Beringer placed third flying the same model he used at last years nationals .

August 1981 Aeromodellor .

" in third place ,  Gilbert Beringer flew the model
he used at last years nats, its aerobatic capacity is
only matched bygilberts aerobatic prowess
during the ' squares ' .

has ' SPITFIRE ' and ' FOX 40 ' inverted writing on fuse.

From the LINK above , and a bilingual parrot ! .  :-X   ;)

My SPITFIRE made its first flights in 1978,
10 years before my birth. It was used in the French Championship
in Marville in 1978
and has a hell of a
story.
The year
according to, that is to say in 1979, he
had to participate
at Nationals
English. It's here
what happened to his first misadventure: the plane of
Jean-Marc AUBE
and the SPITFIRE
had been placed
on my father's R16. But Olivier CHARLES, my
dear uncle, had arrived shouting that they shouldn't
put above but below a car because of the wind.

not in the corners and allows you to get out without worrying about
hazardous situations such as hourglass exits.
Its elliptical wings allow it to support
turbulence in the wind and it does not pull too much on the
arms unlike my father's SUKHOI 31. Short,
it is the best plane and it is also the most beautiful with
its curved lines!

Who is the aviation enthusiast who has not dreamed of
to fly a Spitfire?
I take advantage of our review of circularists to let you know
of the luck granted to me and tell you how
my dream came true thanks to the members of the club of Saint
Etienne, Gilbert, Marc, Rémi and Michel my father.
Today, I remember that autumn afternoon when I
discovered with envy the
magnificent planes
series 3 champions
without imagining that
several years later
the chance would be given to me to pilot the one who
seems to me to be one of
most emblematic,
Spit fire.
My learning at
piloting done on wing
of combat and Pegasus in
series 1 and 2, came for me
when to choose
the plane to do
team to face my
new competitors of
series 3. Difficult to
choose, I knew the
qualities of the Caudron but
its shape did not suit me
not, the Gee Bee or the
Sukhoi were as to
them planes
"Pros" and I still didn't feel the build
for this type of device.
I knew the club had
built a replica of the Spitfire about twenty years ago and
than a wing yard
still existed.

This is an airplane which, by virtue of its size and its
motorization seemed to me quite to the
height of my ambitions.
After weighing the pros and cons, I decided my father to embark on the adventure of construction, taking advantage of a stay with the Béringer family to cut out the set of ribs. I had also, shortly before, acquired a motor
Listopad bought second-hand from Bruno de Saléon. I profit from
this page to thank Bruno for what was one more
than a sale. When you start, the helping hand of the elders,
we remember.
This work finished, I encountered my first difficulty, no
plan of the plane did not exist. Aware of the task I was going
having to achieve, I associated my father with the construction.
With the technical advice of Gilbert, Marc and Rémi,
our first step was to make a scale 1 plan. I wanted the proportions of the plane to bring it closer to the
semi-scale. While retaining the same elliptical wing
we decided to enlarge the stabilizer and the fin and to
pass the width of the fuselage initially from 5 to 7 cm. For
to be efficient we knew that the total mass of the plane
should not exceed 1300 grams, my Listopad motor
very light, met this requirement well. To get closer
ideal centering, everything was calculated as accurately as possible, each
balsa board was handpicked (for that, trust Marc and Rémi).

The construction was long, started in
month of November 2001, the maiden flight
took place in November 2002, our
lack of experience and our family perfectionism (finally especially that of dad)
are certainly the cause of our slowness. Of the most significant moments of the
construction I will retain the molding of the
cockpit canopy where after a good
thirty fruitless attempts we discovered the unsuspected qualities of Arcens bottles for thermoforming (see
article in circular info n° 26) as well as
the crossover.
I end this article by telling you about
my impressions of the flying qualities of the
Spitfire new version.
Its weight in flight order of 1250 grams allows it to be very lively in all angular figures and to maintain great stability. Unlike other aircraft of its size, the Spitfire in high winds does not accelerate in tricks, which allows flight
soft and flowing. Its elliptical wing, well drawn, gives it a line of flight appreciated by the public (especially with pretty girls, at good
hearer hello…). For the amateurs I have a good plan… of the plane of course. ٱ

Here it is today.

It is decorated with
 blue and green stripes;
clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades are yellow
and the inscriptions in orange

In 1982, Véronique BERINGER flew with an ACROBAT derived from the Spitfire: elliptical wing of the truncated Spitfire
with marginal edges, more rectilinear fuselage and wing and stabilo on the same plane.
