Art-Tech Spitfire

I have the Art-Tech Mustang and Corsair and they have done such a great job of capturing the look of the real birds and best of all they fly like trainers. Consequently I am now trying to purchase their new Spitfire model but I don't know of a distributer in the US or else where.
Has anyone seen where a person could order one?

Looks like there's a P-40 and P-51A/B too. Watch the video to the end:

Yeah. I've been wanting a B-model P-51. Not in love with the looks of the Spitfire. Canopy is wrong. My fav is the PZ Spitfire. Looks just right although the GWS Spit wing looks great in the air.

I saw the Spitfire on a visit to China, but it is not yet in series production. When it is Hobby Lobby will offer it here in the US.

Mike,
Thanks for the info and please offer the Spit in a PNP version. Most of us already have enough transmitters.

I watched the video of the Art-Tech plant in China and they showed a P-40 and a early version of the Mustang in the same size series. Any guess as to when they will be in production and available, hopefully from Hobby Lobby?

Lastly, any chance Hobby Lobby will start distributing the ARF version of the Feisler Storch that is now available in Europe?
Thanks,
Larry

Hi guys I have just done a kit review on the Spitfire and there a fantastic model and they fly brilliantly! One thing to note is that for smooth flying both the ailerons and elevator need to be set mechanically to minimal throws at the surfaces.

Hi guys just thought I would comment on the art tech spit, its good value for money and looks great in the air but there is something not right with the c of g on my sons model..
If (in level flight) you put any power on, it nose's up rather a lot then dips so I think it needs some weight up front, does anyone agree or not?...
Thanks Frank
