New Product
Seagull Spitfire 26-38cc (2030mm)

I have just found a new spitfire by Seagull models.

Lšnge = 1638 mm
Gewicht = ab 6 kg
Motorisierung = 25 - 40 cm ≥ Benzinmotor oder Elektroantrieb ab 2000 Watt




Any owners out here?

I am very curious as to the quality of this bird.

This could be a nice plane. My Seafury flies well and I am looking for a spit this size.

wow.... stand-WAY-off scale

poor coloring, MK14 cowl and chin scoop on a Mk9? Spinner way too small.... Wrong elevator horn balance.

scale polices dream!

but for it's size... WAY cheaper than the top flite (gag) or the Hangar 9 (much better).

I did go look at all the pics on the fist site. That's where I saw most of the errors (besides the obvious ones in the pic at the top).

Doing it right makes it more money and probally doesnt fly all that well.

making the cowl look like a MK9 instead of MK 14 takes more money? how?

making the colors right cost more money? How?

a larger scale spinner makes it fly worse? how?
