    Description:
    G3.5 version of the Fairey Swordfish

    The Fairey Swordfish was a torpedo bomber built by the Fairey Aviation Company and used by the Fleet Air Arm of the Royal Navy during World War II. Affectionately known as the Stringbag by its crews, it was outdated by 1939, but achieved some spectacular successes during the war, notably the destruction of the Regia Marina (the Italian Navy) in the Battle of Taranto and the famous crippling of the Bismarck. It was operated primarily as a fleet attack aircraft, however, during its later years it was also used as an anti-submarine and training craft. Designed in the 1930s, the Swordfish outlived several types intended to replace it and remained in frontline service through to the end of the war in Europe in 1945.

    The Realflight model is a 1:5.5 scale model of the full size with a wingspan of 103 inches and an AUW of just under 33lbs.
    Like the full size it has folding wings which are operated via the 3 pos switch.

    Far Position=Wings extended and locked
    Middle Position=Wing retaining clamps are released
    Near Position=Wings folded

    It also has a movable rear machine gun which works with the rudder and elevator and top wing slats which work via the Rotory Knob.
    The Torpedo is droppable via the top right switch and the contra rotating propellers even turn when released.
    In the cockpit the rudder pedals and flight yoke work as you would expect and the throttle lever works aswell.

    02-14-200910Mode OneWonderful job, I just downloaded it and am amazed at what was included as details that activate I cut down the prop diameter and increased pitch. As designed, I found some times it barly had enough power to get airboard and other times it was fine. However I went down to a 16X10 and I have better power now. Thanks for all your hard work!! One of the best airplanes as far as detail is concerned that I have added to my fleet!
    11-20-200810herc40MAN this a great model. I like the way it gets up slowly, and has that stall factor if you try to yank up on the yoke, very charcteristic of older aircarft of the time. Excellent in every way.
    01-25-201410jjfThis plane is the best biplane.
    11-22-200810ven2sFreakin amazing! On a scale of 1 to 10; a 15!!! How about an Avro Lancaster??
    11-20-200810Junkboy999Spent hours dive bombing the Heli pads. I can imagine the early aviators wondering if they where going to survive the take off much less the mission flying in one of these Air Machines with a that heavy torpedo. *** Fantastic Job ***
