Great Planes includes a fiberglass cowl and lightweight, balsa/ply main structures featuring an attractive Allied trim scheme.
You can assemble this model for belly landings or with the fixed wire landing gear provided — and mount your aileron servos and linkages on the top or bottom of the wing.
The Spitfire comes already covered with five colors, that represent a typical trim scheme of the World War II Allied fighter. Decals shown are included and die-cut for easy application.
For an outstanding brushless electric power system, outfit the Spitfire with a 1450kV outrunner brushless motor, 45A ESC, and 3200mAh LiPo battery.
Laser-cut parts for installing a complete brushless electric power system are supplied. Accessing electronics for maintenance is as simple as removing the wing.
With a glow power, enjoy thrilling sport action or cut your combat competition's ribbon to shreds!
If you prefer to fly using glow power — as required for AMA-sanctioned combat contests — Great Planes provides the mounting materials needed to install a 2-stroke .25 cu in engine.
