Well, looks like I'll finally have a Spitty in the hangar. Been waiting for a large one like this!

I've been wanting a Spitfire myself for a while now. But I didn't want one of the little 1200mm ones. This will be just about perfect!

Bigger Spits really do fly better. It's really helpful to keep the rudder "flying" due to the narrow gear, on roll out. The extra rudder area and the larger airfoiled rudders are more effective and the larger models with a little more momentum and more stable... so of course that helps. For all you grass guys, there isn't a better "grass" runway warbird than a Spit IMHO and the larger format is made to order.

LOL! I noticed that on one of Ryan's video's as well. "Mk" in English stands for "mark or marc" as in "Mark IX". In German "MK" stands for "Motor Kannon" as in MK108 not "Mark 108". Just pulling your chain a little Ryan. All in good fun.
