This little Spitfire is not likely to win any scale competitions or for that matter, make you more attractive to the opposite sex or bring about world peace, but, it's a great little flyer, honest, simple and great value for money, actually for a Plug N Fly model, it's a steal!
The under-carriage is plug in, so you can hand-launch if you wish, if you do use the under-cart then you will be pleased that the Spit has 4 Channel control and that means a steerable tailwheel. Most of the work is done for you, the motor, ESC, all servo's are included so there really isn't much to do, the longest job is cutting out the canopy! Glue, tools and everything you need except your own TX/RX & Lipoly are included, it's a lot of "Warbird" for not a lot of cash, ideal for those calm parkflyer days.
I am surprised at HK reviving this.IMHO it is an obsolete ( eg fragile EPS) format and HK,s mini EPO Spit will be a safer choice for people wanting one. It does fly well when trimmed properly but i doubt many will survive long with the sort of landings the average pilot will achieve.
From Wiki: "When the Fw 190 started flying operationally over France in August 1941 it was quickly proven to be superior in all but turn radius to the Royal Air Force's main front line fighter, the Spitfire Mk. V." The Battle of Britain took place between August and September 1940.
Come on people, nothing serious here, there's something called the "big what if's". I was simply trying an alternate course to the BoB. (it might have been different if the luftwaffe wasn't obsessed bout thinking radial engines were outdated)
When Canada has more than 1/10th the population of the United States. As much as I'd love a Canadian warehouse (Go Canucks!) I don't think it's going to happen anytime soon. Not because of desire, but because of economics...
A year?!? it's more like 2-3. I just barely missed a chance to snatch up one of the last two as a spare so I only bring mine out once every month or so. I figure that if it has a counted number or flights this will make it last longer (in months) :-) .
Anthony Hand, Can we get more info on how long it will be in stock? Or a potential pre-order listing for the wood version? And of course the usuall send it to all external warehouses comments to keep costs down :) Thanks
so jazz it up with a nikko pen set and buy it for the kids to wreck , anthony dont listen to them the people complaining about this CHEAP warbird wouldnt hesitate to put 50 dollars petrol to drive to the hobbystore to buy an expensive rc plane that would fly like **** anyway i add again for the price of this mine flys great , yeh it doesnt like wind but no small plane does so suk it up and buy it !!!sooks of the world go cry to your mama...
Really nice plane, fly very fast and vertical are strong. The bad thing are a little cheap but for That price!! For the CG i have add 90g betwen the prop and motor on the shift, a métal brushing. I fly with a 1000 mha zyppy and the flight Time is around 12 min. This plane fly on the rail, CAN fly in wind. The landing is a little hard, the nose tip easily but it' a warbird!!! I have many warbird from parkzone and this one is one of m'y prefered plane, is small and very strong, i have renforced the landing gear and the motor mount. Great plane, go for it!!! Excuse for m'y english

Really nice plane. Awesum to fly. Bugger I can't fly, and crashed after 30 seconds and damaged the front and wing. Would be nice if hobby king had spare parts for this plane. Apart from that love it. Am buying another to replace the one I damaged.
