I can't give dates as such, both should be roughly within 4 weeks, Spit first most likely.

Lol why does it matter, another spit is way better than another mustang ��, Scott and the crew are raising the benchmark and it will be interesting to see how other brands respond to this onslaught from hobbyking.

Btw it's not just another spit, it's a mk24 which to my knowledge has never being done before, I would like to buy one when it's arrives in au warehouse.

Agreed no more P-51's, P-47's, P-40's etc either. I have a Mk 24 (but never found a 5 blade prop for it) and another Mk 24 that I converted to a Seafire Mk 47 (no contra prop though). Have the B/C Spit that is close to a Mk V and a foamy Mk 5 that I changed the fin and exhaust stubs to represent a Mk IX so enough Spits in my hanger! I do hope that Scott and HK can release a foamy Spit that looks like the Mk it represents and that they supply the correct prop but I want the Vixen! Anyway if they must release a new prop plane why not be as adventurous as in their jet line -- Vampire, Vixen and release say a Macchi 202, a Do 335 or a Barracuda or even a long nose FW 190D. Must admit that HK are raising the bar on medium size electric scale models.

That vixen looks fantastic scott. Don't rush her out, we don't mind waiting for you to get the quality up to par with the rest of the durafly stuff.
Imho there can never be enough spitfires lol. Considering they are bringing out a new model every few weeks - often rarely or never done before - I'm quite happy for them to pop in a new mk of spit. I think HK are doing an awesome job raising the bar for variety at the moment. Someone brought the new Durafly stuka down to the field today and that winter paint job is wonderful. I flew my mk9 spit alongside.

Let's assume just for the sake of it, that the price of the plane is $200.............

$200 for the plane...........................

$500 to order it via phone somewhere overseas................priceless.
