How to distinguish between Crossfire 1 and 2

Recommended Posts

Brake line trim is one method, I believe. The first Crossfire 1's had a fairly 'straight' upper line trim (i.e. similar lengths). Derek modified a few for a more dynamic flare, and the XF2 incorporated something similar.

Getting a line trim chart for both and just checking the uppers would tell you.

Can you please tell me the easiest way to tell if its a Crossfire 1 or 2



The best way to determine that fact is to look at the "d" lines.
A Crossfire I has 10 "D" lines

A Crossfire II has only 6 "D" lines, missing the two on each side nearest the stabilizers.

The entire line trim is different.

Derek changed a few Safires, not Crossfires at the upper control lines.

in fact a lot of those canopies were changed back to standard.
