Hangar 9 30cc Spitfire Build log just got mine!

I just picked up my new H9 30cc spitfire, and the Eflite electric retracts made for the spitty. Over the plane looks awesome, printed covering,panel lines etc. The retracts come with a control board and spring suspension oleo struts! Will start snapping pics when the wifey is not around.

I will snap plenty of pictures! I plan on using a dle 30 or another 30cc engine. The looks of the kit so far is superb! I knew I just had to have this plane.

Here's a few pics of the plane, from my observations, so far looks very well constructed I have the h9 .60 razorback and was impressed with the printed covering and the ease if building. This spitfire is the same if not better quality. Included in the box is a painted aluminum spinner, painted radiators,gun mounts guns antennae mast etc. also is 2 different rudders and stickers for you to choose which plane you want to build! The fuse has a magnetic hatch just behind the cowel and cutouts inside for switches etc. knowing my past experiences with hangar 9 planes this one is sure to fly superb!

Sweet. Can you give some cowl measurements. Height by width where the engine sits

Can you verify if the LG is truly scale or slightly modified for easier handling?

Looks great & thanks

The cowel, around 7X6 where the engine sits. So far I have my wings done, installed my servos in the fuse. I am working on mounting the engine now. Ill tell you it ios a tight squeeze for the batteries etc, but its doable. The DLe 35 ra will require you to mount the throttle servo in a different location. took some thinking but I figured out where to put it. So far the build is going quick. I did take of the bottom piece of the firewall to get into the fuse to mount the firewall bolts. I do that to most of my planes anyway. Plus it allows me to get in there again if I have to. I might stuff the ignition module in there as there is room.

Here's a picture of the tank, I have two life batteries on the sides of the tank, one for ignition and one for rx. You can also see I'll have to mount my throttle servo in this area since the DLE 35ra throttle arm is on top.

We have a 35 EVO. It's rail mount with a front carb. I think it would be a great fit, heavy too

When u get the gear in I like to see a pic of them from the front - straight on. Thanks

Ouch! 3 pounds..... spitfire always requires so much weight regardless of the maker. Can you move batteries forward?
