All spars arrangements are designed as „comb boxes“. That is, like a comb, the casing elements are inserted into the wing along the spars from above or below. This leads to a significant reduction in construction time.
Inside the wing-side wheel bay, one of two cord deflection pulleys is visible here in the pictu - res.
A wire or cord can be used to sup - port retraction of the landing gear with a long pull spring that can be mounted in the wing.
Rudder, elevator and ailerons move in fillets. The axles consist of core tube and 0.8 mm spring steel of standard Bowden cables, which are normally used for con - trolling rudders of all types. They are pulled out of the tubules at the side or top, so that the rudder blades can be easily removed at any time. All rudder horns are included in the kit as milled fiber glass parts. They are bonded in the front balsa elements of the rudders. This results in reliable and practical controls.
The central part of the cockpit canopy is - like the original - attached to the right side and can be opened.
The corresponding control horn and the mounts for the rotary axes (for two M2 screws) are prepared.

The Kolm IL100-V4 is installed with hanging cylinders, twisted 18° to the left. The required side pull and the down-turn are of course taken into account, as well as forced ven - tilation of the two cylinders by a sepa - rating wall in the removable cowl.

Kolm IL100 V4 In-line two-cylinder 100 ccm, suitable tank of your choice or Hacker Q100-7M, 12.000 to 16.000 mAh @ 12S Electron evo ER-40, 85°
The drive is cooled by a large opening in the bottom region behind the spin - ner, where the air flow is directed sideways right through the engine´s cooling ribs.
The hot air exits on the right side of the fuse - lage through the dum - mies of the six DB-601 exhaust nozzles. The dummies are still in development and will be a v a i l a b l e shortly.
In the front fuselage area, servo mounting fra - mes are integrated for engine control (gas, choke), for the residual covers of the landing gear doors and for controlling the two belly flaps.
The crankshaft housing is stored by a three-point support construc - tion made of milled GfK (picture left).
The main components of the battery carrier are milled from 2mm strong fiber glass plate material. Velcro straps hold the batteries on the carrier without hindering slide-in and pull-out.
The battery carrier is guided through the canopy opening in a rail system. According to the required center of gravity position, it can be locked at three different positions.
In order to facilitate this, the carrier has been provided with a practical finger hole. Contacts for the electrical connection with the ESC can be installed to the left and right of the carrier. They are easily accessible.
It is sufficient to secure the jig with a few weights or needles on the construction table against slipping or moving. As soon as a few more components are mounted, an entire fuselage, one can be freely moved to another working place.
Formers, wing and tail plane ribs are provided with small „legs“. They are put into correspon - ding slots of the poplar plywood „jig“. A war - page in assembly is practically excluded, provided that a straight construction board is used as a base
The picture shows the view forward into the fuse - lage, with the canopy taken off. On an plane carrier, directly behind the motor frame, space is reserved for the electronic flight controller (ESC).
A flat table, a door from the hardware store, or a simple, flat board with a mini - mum length of 175 cm is sufficient as a building board for building all components.
In three special frames, the servos for the functions tail wheel in/out, tail wheel steering and elevator, can ideally be placed (in the picture right from top to bottom).
A small tail wheel is integrated in the vertical stabilazer fin. It is retracta - ble, steered and spring-loaded. The internal structure is designed in such a way that landing jab forces are distributed to the cell at best.
Tail wheel extended
The carbon push rod for the retraction of the tail landing gear is controlled by the servo provided in the upper area behind the cockpit. While extended impacts on the wheel from below are parried by the spring via the stretched cinematics.
Two steel braids control a torsion rod, which is guided in an aluminium tube. The associated servo sits in a frame about half the fuselage height.
The two elevators are pluggable. The elevator control is done by a square torsion rod.
The downward-extended rudder and the backward-shifted cabin give the Me-209 her incomparable character.
The horizontal stabilizer with rudder and elevator blades are mounted on jigs each in one piece, in order to be rail-guided and bonded in a prepared structure of the fuse - lage. Once an area is covered on one side, it can be separated from the jig and even be put back on the jig.
The Me-209 is designed for the installation of different drives. The Kolm two-cylinder in-line engine IL100-V4 is ideally suited. Currently ano - ther variant for the installation of a 3- cylinder Roto Rm130 FSI inline is in deve - lopment.
The machine is ideally suited or prepared for the installation of a high-performance electric brushless drive @ 12 or 14 S. The two variants have different, specialized front parts.

Super-light plastic tubes (party straws) are provided for the clean installation of all kind of electrical cores and control lines in the fuselage and wings.
If the rudder is removed, all essential components of the wheel cinematics are accessible for maintenance by openings in the rudder´s fillet.
For maintenance, the electromotor can also be easily reached and removed. It is screwed to the motor frame via an adap - ter plate made of high-strength fiber glass. There is enough room for effective cooling of the engine and the flight controller (ESC).
There is plenty of room for various additional electronics. For example, on the battery slide, or left and right above the center-mounted flap servo.
If the available retract-torque were not fully sufficient, a spring-supported wire or cord can be installed. All necessary fiber glass parts are included in the kit.

Electronics Installation

The assembly and movement angles of the main landing gear are given by design, so that a standard 50-size two-leg gear (wheel diameter: 180 mm) enters the bays cleanly.
High-quality STRONGAL® connecting tubes (D35 mm) from Petrausch Modellbau guarantee maximum strength and stability in combination with the smart con - struction of the wing- fuselage interface.
The wing is secured against slipping out by means of a simple, central M6 screw connection.
The wing is secured against slipping off the fuselage by means of a central M6 screw connection. It is screwed from the wheel shaft in the fuselage to a thread protru - ding from the wing root rib.
The servo for the internally controlled split flap is housed in a removable frame secured by four screws. All rudders of the glattCAD Me-209 V1 are preferably pivoted in light standard bowden cables, main - tainable, run in fillets. Electrical installation ducts are provided in the wing for all conceivable require - ments.

The spinner measures 20 cm in diameter. It is laminated in carbon and is the - refore super-light. For this purpose and also for the canopy´s thermofor - ming stamp, various masters models and molds were 3D milled or lathed. Carbon and fiber glass components are available as part sets.

Like the empennage rudders and the flaps, the ailerons are also hinged on the wing by means of bowden tubules with steel wire and sliding bushing. In this way, the rudder can be finished and painted independently before being attached. The spe - cial advantage of this simple method, however, is that the rudder can be separated from the wing at any time and without tools for maintenance.

The Me-209 was built as a racing aircraft with the aim of breaking the world speed record. In competition with Ernst Heinkel, Messerschmitt factory pilot Fritz Wendel succeeded on April 26, 1939: 755 km/h! It wasn't until 30 years later, in 1969, that the record was to be broken. In autumn 2016, the prototype of the electrically operated glattCAD Me-209 flew for the first time. Mario Bühler, an experienced modeller from MFC Bad Wörishofen, built it and tested it intensively. His experiences and improvements in numerous details flowed back into a redesign. Now a sophisticated wooden kit can be offered.
