Overall I am very happy with the plane, she flies great in wind. Any other 1S plane today would have been almost unflyable in this wind.
Sorry if you covered this earlier but what did you use for a prop and battery for these flights? Good job avoiding the hawk!

Non-Hawk flight was the Eflite 150

Hawk Flite was Thunder Power 160

Both were with the stock 4 blader. I didn't even take the prop/saver off when switching out the motors. Loving this plane! Flew her again this afternoon and she is so much fun! I like bringing her in low to the deck after a nice hammerhead!

RTR SX motors:

Matt,

Many thanks for the quick install and vids!
I hope you have many hrs of 1S fun with that Spit.

I do sell Ready To Run SP & SX motors.
Old motor trade-in is a must!

SP and SX motors have an amazingly long life-span for a coreless brushed motor.
I've noticed that they run stronger after about 20~30 break-in flights.
Also, the better the batt, the better the performance.
Hyp (1S) 180s & 240s for me.

and the motor connectors can be found at http://www.rc-connectors.com/index.p...m41v8ogfko1r95 They also have cables for the brushless conversions also. Then you just need the little GWS gear puller. Of course I have had mine for almost a year and still haven't managed to do the 4 motors I bought. Guess I forgot to pick up the prerequisite Round Tuit

Was your video edited that way as a statement to those who were questioning the Spitfire's speed? It reminds me of a Benny Hill skit or something - kinda funny to watch @ 2x speed

It may just be an illusion of spacial relation as it approaches the camera, like the hammerhead around 1:10 or so for example. It also seemed to have pretty snappy elevator response.

Well, they finally came in stock this week at the LHS and I picked mine up today and maidened it at the club field. LOTS of down elevator needed but other than that I simply bound it to my DX8, gave it a toss and flew it, no expo, just 100% throws.

GREAT little plane. You can surely tell it is a 1s brushed motor as after flying the Beast 3D, Mig 15 DF and UM Stryker it seemed kind of slow. Then I took the Mossi up and realized it is pretty much on par for the brushed motor birds.

LOOKS AMAZING, very snappy elevator and ailerson response. It loops fine, if a little doggy at the top, and flys SUPER STABLE with the AS3X. Probably going to see more air time than any other of my micro planes, it's just sooooo much fun.

Happy flying all!

Marlin
