Is it possible to improve on the FT Spitfire? Yes, yes it is! Thank you John Overstreet for bringing this beautiful plane to the community. Aside from the fact that you can make a plane from foam board, Overstreet helps to improve on the skill of scratch building with dollar tree foam board!
This project lasted a good 11+ nights, and I was able to create this beautiful bird from plans that were printed out on my printer. Yes, you read this right: 51 pages that was cut, taped, traced onto foamboard that was cut, and shaped then glued together and painted.
The whole process was amazing, but I am not going to lie; this project is NOT for everyone. There were many times that I was sure I was doing something wrong, or thought that I would have to scrap this whole process. But with patience, and pushing through the process with the build video I was able to create something truly amazing.
Overall, I was happy with the end result, even though the motor I slapped in did not exactly fit. But you should know the flight characteristics of this plane are amazing! This plane is very well balanced with a 3000mah 4s pack, and has plenty of power with the scrapped motor from a Parkzone Corsair.

I hope you like the vids, and if you are looking for a fun and amazing war bird to add to your collection, give this project a shot.
