The Spitfire Ultra Micro is compact in size and a blast to fly. Perfect for large indoor flying spaces, or outside in low wind conditions. Featuring full 4ch control, this ultra micro is a real performer. Capable of full scale aerobatics such as loops, rolls, inverted flight and more.
The Spitfire is small and portable enough to take with you anywhere. The box it comes in also doubles as transport for the airplane. The airplane packs neatly in the box along with all of the accessories, and features a handle on the outside for easy carrying.
The included 2.4ghz radio is both Mode 1 and Mode 2 capable (user selectable) and features a built-in charging function for the flight battery. All that is needed to do is insert the AA batteries into the radio, charge the flight battery, and your ready to go!

I purchased on about 10 days ago. It arrived last week, charged the battery plugged everything in (prop, controller batteries) etc. Turned it on and all seemed fine, less than 10 seconds later the elevator was locked in the down position and there was a buzzing sound coming from it. I opened it to find the elevator servo was locking the second you turned it on. It eventually spun the wheel right off the servo board. Life happens so I wasn't too upset hoping customer service would get me situated. Well so far I'm not too pleased. It took them 5 days to tell me to mail back the airplane and tell me that they will not send any replacements till they receive and examine the unit. This is after I sent in video and pictures of the actual problem. Just a little disappointed because I was looking forward to the new toy. At this rate, maybe I'll have one by the end of the month.
the customer service leaves alot to be desired! I have been in contact with them about an issue (9 days to ship 1 micro servo)And i paid as much as the servo in 5 day shipping.well its been 12 days and no servo...customer service gives me the same exact excuse every time...word for word like its the standard excuse...BS hobbyking!And they will delete negative coments.
Just wanted to know if anyone is flying this with the landing gear off and belly landing on grass. I dont have a hard runway around here and usually hand launch. I figured that with the break away prop it would be pretty conducive to belly landing with a little tape for skid resistance.
YES! For its size I think it is quite durable but if you crash it pretty bad one of the wings may brake off or the front end may brake up. 5 min epoxy will fix it though. Mine has lots of 5 min epoxy and it still flies.
The plane is relatively fast for its size. I do have to report however that the rudder is pretty much useless, Just not enough deflection to turn. But using alerons and elivator it flies pretty well.
I would say that performance is more of a intermediate trainer then a sport plane. It loops very well but it does not like to be on its top.
Can this plane turn successfully if you use the rudder and use no ailerons at the same time? Mine says "3 or 4 ch" on the box (I'm thinking maybe that means you can fly without using ailerons). I plan to fly it very soon and would appreciate an answer before I take her up.
yes they all can be flown buy the rutter or the ailerons.i have several of the nine eagle planes.i fly allmost everyday,if not too windy.i fly mine over a crop feild.so lots of gusts aand wind and all of them fly great.i have the spitfire and p 51 and the yak. im sure u will be happy with your purchase
alot better,the spitfire is really pitchy.where the p 51 is more stable.plus i find it easier to see in the air.my opinion though my favorate is the yak it has a bigger wing area and flies really slow.the easyest to monuver and do 3d tricks.im in north carolina,where you at?
wait, what? mix ailerons with elevator on a spitfire? unless you have a flying wing, don't mix the ailerons with the elevators. mixing ailerons with rudder (technically you are "slaving" the rudder to the elevator) is a good way to get smoother turns though.
i have several nine eagles including the spitfire.i bought 4 150mah for back up.you can only find them in the international site.that being said it only cost 10 bucks for all 4 including shipping.enjoy your plane i love them,high crash resistance
Hot glue guns made for foam works excellent. Its almost instant dry time and is extremely durable. I've revived my P40 (800mm) several times with it and immediately have it up and flying within 30 minutes of the crash.
yes elmers glueclear drying and it doesnt hurt the foam

When I first received this plane it had some issues. The servo controlling the rudder on mine was totally glitchy, but the other servos worked great. The rudder servo (on mine) is always making noise and can be twitchy. Many times the rudder can get jammed in one direction. One of these times it cause my plane to crash hard. The Spitfire's wing was barely hanging on to the plane. First thing I did was take apart the plane and disconnect the rod from the rudder and rudder servo. Then I taped the rudder so it wouldn't be flimsy. Then used 5 min. epoxy to glue wing on- that worked well. After that I reinforced the wings and tail with scotch tape (which I recommend doing before flying the plane!). This plane turns well using only ailerons (lucky for me!). Once you get all of the problems fixed the plane flies great!! Can do many tricks and very fun to fly!! Surprisingly, it can fly very slow with low throttle! One 150 mah battery lasts 6-8 mins. The 9 eagles 150 mah spare batteries need to be sanded to fit better, or will not work properly. The plane can't withstand nasty crashes, but is easily fixed. The remote has really good range, shows battery power, trim, throttle, mode 1 & 2. This agile warbird is well worth the price! I love it!!

I have this plane along with a P-51 and I must admit that the Spitfire is not as stable as the P-51. This plane will do loops fine even with winds up to 8 kph. But it does not do nice rolls. The rudder is useless wich is a shame. But it's alot of fun to fly anyway.
You get what you pay for.
It's not built with top quality in mind but it does the job. The servos are a bit slow to react, all nine eagles planes have the same servos. they could be faster and have more torque. It takes about 2 seconds to travel form one end to the other.
If you break something and would like to replace the part with a new one you must be aware the the results will not be as satisfactory as one would expect because you will have to cut some pieces of foam to have an almost perfect fit. You won't get a perfect fit. I have replace the front wing (cellule) and it was a bit hard to put the push rod onto the wing horn as the whole was not large enough. I also had to cut a bit of foam to place the servo in the right place. The pushrods don't have any adjustable turnbuckles so that you can play with the lenght.
Overall it's a good product and you will have fun with it but be aware that there is other model from Nine Eagles that are more stable and more fun to fly.
I would recommend the P-51 more than the Spitfire for it's flight stability.
best to buy additional batteries...i have not flown my spit yet do to a bad lipo that came with it.after reading what a headache customer service is i chose to simply buy 6 batteries..hoping that is the actual problem.
