Guillow's #403 Spitfire...yeah...

i am currently building a Guillow's kit spitfire with electric flight in mind. based off posts of read here and on other sites i pretty much have full intentions on crashing and burning once its completed and attempted to be flown

that said, its still my goal to actually get a successful flight a time or two, even if it is entirely on accident. it will be a simple build with stock wing and simple R/E/T only. im considering not even using the landing gear to avoid the both weight and tearing it up on landing (if it comes belly side down in a controlled fashion ever). so far the plan is to have the front of the fuselage removable for battery access and the nose planked for added support. im considering planking the LE/TE of the wings somewhat for stability on impact but not sure if that is worth the added weight.

my list of parts is looking like it will be as follows:


using an e-flite park 250 brushless, e-flite esc, and 2 blade 9x5 prop

i have a 4 channel controller, just have to check if the current receiver will fit the small spitfire and how much it weighs.

any suggestions/ideas on how to go about this build or the above parts?
