DETAILS

Hi friends.

This 800 Series plane packs a huge punch. It's an extremely agile and responsive platform that makes for a great 3rd plane. If you enjoy how the FT Spitfire or FT Mustang fly then you'll love this plane. The smaller size benefits from reduced build time without compromising on the performance you expect. It can handle power systems ranging from a race quad 2204 motor all the way to pushing 1200 watts of power on a 3536.

No compromise. Just perfect power and perfect performance.


If you like this design then perhaps you’ll like some of my others as well.

Very nice looking plane Nic! All of your planes are tempting but I fear this one is too much to resist. I may just have to build one, I'll find a place to keep it even if I have to crash one of my others to make room.

Your original Spitfire is a great plane. Well done on the updated version. She looks awesome.

Rated! Nice one again Nic. Super stoked to fly this soon but the weather is still terrible in the UK - I'm not really helping the stereotype about it always raining here! I may have to build another while I'm waiting. There are a few things I want to try out on the new one. I'm thinking about modifying the plans to make another MK of the Spitfire. I'll be sure to post them on the build thread if I do. :) Cheers.
