Axion Spitfire/BF109

Just got a nice looking axion Spitfire for my birthday my brother treated himself to the BF109 so we can get a little dog fight action when i visit him.
Just wondering if anyone has flown one of them? i can only find one video of the 109 and it looks very good. not over powered but not a sluggish cheap rtf at the same time.
The wind has been blowing 20mph the last few days, so i have not had a chance to fly. and wont until i next visit my brother.
Its a very nice looking Model based on a MK24 Spitfire. and i really cant pick any faults in it. Cant wait to get some Dog fights on the go!

Oh my! I just looked the axiom micros up. I must have at the very least the I-15! I think I also will need to have the spit and 109. I can live without the t-6, unless I find someone else with one for some reno racing! Does anyone know if these are coming to the US????!!!! If not I might have to see if its worth it to have someone grab and ship me one. ( Im thinking it will not be cheap, but man the I-15 is a looker to say the least! ) More info people please!

the electronics inside are pretty nice. but at the same time. very easy to remove if you wish to replace with your own gear! plus the boards are all 4ch. so there is a spare channel maybe you can put a 7g servo in for ailerons on the l-15
they fly on a 1cell 350mah battery with a red jst connection. and the Charger is a little USB dongle with a dial for Fast charge or not so fast!

Personally I would really only want the airframes, I wouldnt be using the stock stuff Im pretty sure. I didnt see anywhere list replacement airframe parts for sale, you folks know if they sell them over there?

iv only seen these as a RTF bundle with TX. Think Axion is still trying to break into the RC market.

I found the I-15 as a "Link and fly" without TX but everything else, priced at ca 45£ or 60Euros at a Swedish webshop.

What Tx does these bind with?
Only alternative is to buy the Spitfire or Texan as a RTF and use the Tx for the I-15.

BTW all of them is sold as "Link and Fly", but the I-15 was not at sale as RTF.
Price for the RTFs is ca 85£

Kindest regards/ Tommy

You could gat some AS3X Beast 3D guts and put them in the Polikarpov i-15

Here are the spares for the Fuselage and the Main Wing Set for the Polikarpov i-15
