LRP Speedbirds.

I couldn't find any threads on them, I found the spit on ebay for $130. I'm going to try it out, but was wondering if anyone has run them?

Thanks

So are they the exact the same as the funfighters from hobbyking? They are on a sale in my local hobby store so the are about the same price as the hobbyking ones or with shipment even a little cheaper. Thinking of getting a spitfire. How are they?

I have ordered yesterday one from trade4me.de for 69 euro included shippment in germany free !
I have also the bf109 of these speedbirds and I have to say - she's really fast and absolutely nothing for beginners....I have redesigned the bf109 from stock to desert camo....send a picture tomorrow. Also I have cut away a little foam from the rear wing because for scaler look. The stock design of the rear wing was really too big.
No bad tendencies after that...I only have to put the cg more to front.

For the price really nice little "rockets" :

Best regards

If yes don´t have to paint it new - with this speed it doesnt matter which color the plane has :-))))
