I have purchased one of these Spitfires and is now assembled and ready to go. It has the same dimensions as Ripmax Spit.There are a few different things..cowl..motor mount..covering..landing gear.
Their instructions said 98mm from leading edge for centre of gravity.Ripmax CG is 70-75mm. Thanks DP for putting up the manufactures website as i was able to email them about this. This was their reply..

Hello
Sorry,we have a mistake,our Spitfire is same size as Ripmax,the CG is 75mm is correct.
Best.

Thats a big mistake to make ,imagine trying to fly model at their CG
I reckon they havent even test flown it Hope to maiden mine this coming weekend and AUW is 1380g.
This is my setup..Axi 2820/10,MM 40amp BEC,8 cell GP 3700MAH,10X6 prop with a Dubro spinner.
