Supermarine Spitfire Mk IX Composite 50cc Gas 2250mm (ARF) (US Warehouse)

Supermarine Spitfire Mk IX Composite 50cc Gas 2250mm (ARF)  (US Warehouse)

Of all the various marks of the legendary Spitfire, the Mk IX is considered to be probably the finest overal in terms of it's balance of agility, speed and firepower, developed as an answer to the FW190, this iconic version of the Spitfire was one of the best fighters of the war, the Mk IX played a large part in winning Allied air superiority and was so effective, it was still in service until the end of WW2.

This superbly finished Spitfire features a composite fuselage and balsa wings, horizontal stabilizer & rudder. This model has been really well thought out, the 2 pc plug in wings and horizontal stabilizer make the model very practical, both in terms of transportation and field assembly. Another neat feature is the quick realease canopy which features a seperate cockpit, this not only allows easy access to the fuselage, it also gives the modeler the freedom to build a full scale cockpit interior relativley easily. The excellent quality hardware also includes scale details such as radiators, cannon blisters, aerial mast, wheel covers and so on. This model will require retracts (not included) and we have a specially designed, scale full set available for this stunning Spitfire.

This model has an amazingly low flying weight as a result of good design and build quality, performance with a 50cc gas engine fitted will be amazing. Large, scale 300ft loops and so on will be the order of the day. The Spit also lends itself to a practical electric power conversion as the batteries can be accessed so easily. There is no doubt, this beautiful Spit is an amazing giant scale model, in fact with a little work, it would be super scale/show standard, yet at a price that makes it affordable to many warbird fans, the sight of this Spitfire "beating up" your club field will make you the envy of your fellow pilots!

 MaximusInfidelis 10 points
I have the DM 55 in mine, it's the same engine HK sells now as the Turnigy TR-55, 5.6hp with 22x10 prop. Really a great flying plane with this engine.

Hi all! This Spitfire flies, lands and performs really well! It looks the part, although certainly not 100pcnt scale. It needs about 4.5 pounds of weight in the nose with a DLE 55 gas motor, to balance out at the 6 inch CG. I'd recommend reinforcing the firewall and shimming the landing gear further forward about an inch. A good buy...

I am currently doing an online build on RCG under Warbirds. This is a very attractive ARF, but like many ARFs it requires many upgrades. The wing bolt attachment have been proven to fail!!! The wing tube is to short and weak. I have upgraded to a CF wing tube. The engine box needs major reinforcement. I spent hours sanding down the wing tube receivers so the wing tube would fit. There is a big gap at the trailing edge on the left wing. In the end its a very nice model for a good price. but be prepared to do a lot of extra work. Go check my build thread for more details. The best reported CG is 5.5" from the LE.

Love this plane, flies great, it has amazing slow flight characteristics. With 4 1/2lbs of steel in the nose to balance mine came out at 25lbs. C of G is 5.5 inches back. I posted a video, click on the video tab. Like many ARFs from China, you have to do some extra work, but it was well worth the extra effort. I've got 21 flights on mine right now and I really look forward to the weekend, gets lots of attention at the field also. I posted my build on RCU in the WARBIRDS section, just search for Hobby King Giant Spitfire. I cover all the mods that need to be done and some others I did because I wanted to. I would buy another one, love it.
