The Supermarine Spitfire is THE defining aircraft of World War 2 and following on from the Mk1a the Mk5 represents the pinnacle of early Spitfire development. After the defensive campaign of the Battle of Britain, the RAF, RCAF and the USAAF moved steadily onto the offensive and the Mk5 became part of the spearhead of overall allied strategy, including air operations over France, North Africa and later during the Italian campaign. Better armed, faster and more maneuverable, the Mk5 gave the RAF and other allied air forces including the USAAF, a decisive advantage over the Luftwaffe’s Bf109E and was on equal terms with the Bf109F, battling both of these axis aircraft in the ETO (European Theatre of Operations) as well as in the air war over the deserts of North Africa and the Mediterranean between 1941 and 1943. Loved by its pilots and feared by the enemy, the Mk5 Spitfire’s reputation as a thoroughbred fighter was hard earned and well deserved and it will always have a special place in military aviation history as a result.
Durafly’s Mk5 Spitfire really does the full-size aircraft the justice it deserves. Not only has Durafly produced a beautiful and accurate rendition of the Mk5 Spitfire, it brings to market (for the first time ever) a tribute to the gallant pilots of both the RAF and the USAAF thanks to the multiple and historically accurate national markings that have been supplied in the box. But it's not just offering you the choice of these unique and authentic markings, the attention to detail in this plug and fly model is simply outstanding for a model in this scale and that is matched only by its superb flying performance and grace in the air. The Durafly Mk5 is designed for 3s and 4s setups and boasts a range of features typical of Durafly’s exacting standards, especially when it comes to warbirds, including, scale parts, faithfully reproduced split flaps, a scale outline, fine surface detail and a premier paint finish along with an operating LED navigation system.
With this fantastic Mk5, Durafly has designed and produced not just the best, but the ultimate model Spitfire available in this scale and when you get your hands on one, you’ll know that’s no idle boast.

I primarily fly warbirds. They're my passion. I'd heard a lot of good about the Durafly Spit Mk Vb, and finally bought one a few weeks ago. I've flown it a half dozen or so times, and I am incredibly impressed with it. I fly on a grass field, and the take off was VERY easy... tail came up nicely and had a nice roll before rising gently into the air... very scale. Trimming was easy. Just a few clicks of trim and she was locked in. I'm flying 4S-2600mah batts. This spit has very nice speed at WOT. She also flies nice slow maneuvers right in front of me. Knowing that Spits are known for their tendency to tip stall, I cranked up the speed and pulled a tight Immelmann... no snap roll. Of all my 1.1m warbirds, this Spit is one of the easiest to land. She is floaty; so, you have to back off the throttle early, get her on a good glide slope, then use throttle to set the descent, and she settles in for a smooth and easy landing on a grass field. If anyone is on the fence on this one, worried about the narrow-stance gear on grass or the tendency to tip-stall, don't be. You get a lot of bang for the buck. It's a fantastic plane!I have been flying this beauty for some days now and I'm very satisfied with the flying characteristics as well as the look of this plane. Just fly it on 2200mAh 3S, it will give you all the power needed for a scale-like flight.I have been flying this beauty for some days now and I'm very satisfied with the flying characteristics as well as the look of this plane.

The fit and finish are great, assembles with ease, great instruction book, and flies better! I took it up a few mistakes high and stall tested it, all it would do is nose down, no tip drop into a spin. That 3 degrees of wash out they designed in was spot on.The MK 5 spitfires is defiantly a huge step forward and looks to be very scale. the packaging not perfect and some light rash on the plane when it arrived. the flaps scale wheels make the spit really pop for me .a p51B in Od and silver with malcom hood and scale wheels would be a great next choice .excellent job durafly four stars excellent product will try a three cell due to the extra weight of the four
