Maybe Matt or someone from HH can answer this, but how large is the battery compartment compared to the P-47? I have some Gens Ace 3300 and 2500 3S batteries that fit the P-47 just fine but are too big for my T-28. Which is fine because I get enough flight time on that with the 2200s I have. With the same power system as the P-47 though, I'm hoping I'll be able to fit my bigger batteries.

Not fair! First, I got excited about the SE5. Then the Hawker hurricane and now this. Unfair.

As the fuselage of the Spitfire is alot smaller than the P-47 there is not as much room inside. A 2200mAh 3 cell battery is about as big as you can fit without removing foam.

Can anybody tell by the photos if it has a scale three blade prop or a dorky 2 blader? Looks like a 2 blader to me.

Mod #1 find suitable 3 blade spinner and prop and motor combo to spin it.

Matt: Ok, thanks! Can you tell us what kinds of flight times you get off the stock system? I'd imagine that with the smaller front profile, this thing should be faster than the P-47!

Or a 4-blade...

Flight time is about 7 to 10 mins depending on how you are on the throttle. Speed seems about the same as the P-47 but we have not done a side by side comparison either. There is the drag of the radiator scoops on the bottom that is slowing it some too, but you can't have a Spitfire without the radiators.
