check in scratchbuild.

very likely you can put her back together and she will fly like nothing happened. i flew mine hard and she still took all i threw at her.

post pics of the complete airframe here, and on the dedicated spitfire thread on this forum. we can help you piece it back together and give tips if you need help.

I know a guy that build a B-25 or B-something out of one. It was really cool, but don't ask me how he did it lol

I had the AS3X Mustang and had a nasty crash. I had the fuse, wing and tail set for an UM Trojan and decided to throw the P-51 guts into the parts and make an AS3X Trojan.

It's now my favorite airplane to fly. It can fly fast or slow and fly in windy conditions. Give it a shot.

Scratch built flat panel 3d plane from doller-tree foam. Thats just for start though. While your beating the hell out of that, start cutting and forming whatever airframes your sick and twisted imagination can come up with. Then throw the system in a few of your favorites. Thats my plan when my sukoi xp gets beyond a foam tack repair.

That being said, you'd be amazed how repairable these planes are. As I said ^, FOAM TACK. buy it. The repairs are stronger than the foam itself.

Check out Stevensaero, they make a bunch of balsa kits for the parkzone kits. I have the Liddlegee which is cute and a blast to fly. Sadly, most of their kits are 3 channel RET and I don't know how they'd handle the As3X. I too have the guts from a spitfire waiting for the right airframe so I hope you keep us up to date with your choice.
