    Anyone have the dimensions (area) of the control surfaces for this plane? :?: Also, specs on the range of movement of the flaps, ailerons, rudders, and elevator. Thanks!!!!

    The one it's easy to tell from the drawings is that it has nearly full-span flaps; not so easy is that it used spoilers for roll control. Some aircraft that use spoilers for roll control have small ailerons to provide "feel"; the P-61 did not have those.

    Another user, superkeith1872, posted the flight manuals, which may have that information. http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/ot...-29-p-61-flight-manuals-29422.html#post794826

    The P-61/B had smaller size ailerons, that the P-61/A. Also on the P-61/B, the trim tabs where
    removed. So if you are building a P-61/B you will need to fill in this area.

    I have some detailed line drawings of the aircraft,if this would help let me know.
