Fly RC Spit - First flight
I just returned from first flight for Spitfire built from the Fly RC magazine plans. It's 4 channel stand-off scale intended for geared 280. I'm always dubious about power, so I used a graupner 2.33 geared 6V SP400 / 8 kr600AE. AUW is 16 oz. Really impressive flyer, ROG and very maneuverable. This was my first time to try the Berg 4*DSP, also very impressive tiny package, no glitches counted at a busy Sunday field.
Anyway, I can sure recommend the plane for aerobatic sorta scale spitfire. ( It looks like a hurricane to me really )

I agree that it looks like the Hurricane. Perhaps a modification is in order! (Hey, I can do that, just needs a different wing, slightly different tail, a few fuse mods and a new cockpit!)
Anyway, I love that new mag (I have mine right here...) and good luck with the Spitfire! The Bird Dog of the 2nd issue looks spectacular too.

Fly RC Spitfire
Russell2 - Sounds like the Spitfire went real well - Congratulations! I have just finished construction on mine and getting ready to cover. Mine will be powered with a GWS 300 geared motor (same unit that came stock with the GWS Mustang) and will be using a NIMH 5/4AAA 9.6 pack. What do you think of this combination after flying yours?
