Nice, but a waste of time for my clubs field as rough as it is. The intakes'll get ripped off the wing first first landing. Planes this size are hand launch only and belly bounced.

Which Mk is that? All the profile views on the Mk IX I see, the tail looks correct on the new PZ plane, maybe just a touch large.

I'm in!!! Been wanting a Spit forever. And since I've already gotten myself psyched up to get a P-47, I guess I'll just have to get both of them!

My son didn't really need to go to college anyway....

Lberry.88: Har har! I meant the profile of the plane anj4de posted - it's a Mk later than the IX we are getting.

I was looking at the profile views and the horizontal stab/elevator is definitely larger scale than the real thing. No matter to me, I'm sure it's to make it easier to fly. Which I am looking forward to!

Ah my apologies Yeah I'd take an out of scale tail for easy flying any day!

Awesome. Thanks PZ team.

I'm 100% in for the first one at my LHS...

And being a Canadian plane... that is almost too much, especially the day before CANADA DAY.

Really looking forward to getting this home then in the air.

Another happy Canadian here! Great job!

Now it's a matter of attrition for my existing PZ Spit.

Tail


Tail does look off judging by the pics above. I wonder why the tail wasn't made to scale? I have the 109 and Corsair. Plane still looks awesome. I am going to buy one.

Stability I'd imagine.
