Wow! Great kit! It looks like an electric, I prefer them instead of petro versions. Where did you buy the kit and how much did it cost?

Thanks for sharing.

Looks cool, seeing as it looks like an early Spit,are you gonna paint the underside in the early white/black paintscheme?

glad you like it guys - the tail is aligned fine, it's just the angle of the photo.

It is an early spit, the prop is two-blade through necessity, not through choice. Re: the black-white underside, I might do but I am modelling it on a model, metal, spit that I have and that has the colour you see on the underside now.

As for price etc, the plane kit was 40 (inc. motor and prop), the servo's etc cost more because they are micro servo's (15 each X 3) + receiver and transmitter. If you already have the R/C kit the plane was about 120 inc all servo's, crystal, receiver and a Lithium Ion battery pack.

I'll post more pics when it's finished /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I don't see any undercarriage on that!

Looks great though.

I'm not putting undercarriage on it. The supplied stuff is horrible and heavy. I _might_ put micro-retractable kit on it tho, that would be pretty neat http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Bader, have you flown planes like that before?

If not, they are quite fast, and I would recommend training on a slower flying trainer or even an RC glider before flying the Spit.

I you are experienced, then please ignore my babble!

well wait a minute. please excuse my ignorence but, if you have no undercarriage, how do you land the thing.

also, nice job on the paint. I myself am a avid model builder(the plastic kind that dont flyhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif) and always enjoy a good paint job. its my favorite part of building models.

i think you can just belly land them


is that 120 for the whole thing then?

if so that's right good - might have to get one sometimes (although that vhaps probably right about the practice plane)


also is it a proper scale model?, loooks a bit out of proportion...
