Model Airplane News - - FLIGHT TECHNIQUE -

Con­structed pri­mar­ily out of balsa and ply­wood, the Phoenix Model Spitfire ARF is well built. The camo scheme is nicely done in Ul­traCote, with some of the mark­ings al­ready ap­plied. The Phoenix Model Spitfire in­cludes a set of CNC-ma­chined me­chan­i­cal re­tracts. A molded scale cock­pit and pilot fig­ure come in­stalled and painted as well as the canopy. The one-piece wing in­cludes ailerons and scale split flaps. Some of the scale fea­tures in­clude ex­haust stacks, a plas­tic spin­ner, a de­cal sheet, and a pair of wing guns. Also in­cluded in the kit is a painted cowl, a re­mov­able top hatch, wheel fair­ings, a fuel tank, main wheels and a tail­wheel, and con­trol-link­age hard­ware. Mount­ing hard­ware for ei­ther gas or brush­less elec­tric power is pro­vided. Pow­ered by a DLE 30cc gas en­gine, there’s plenty of power, and the nar­row land­ing-gear stance is no prob­lem at all. The Spitfire per­forms with ease all the ma­neu­vers the full-size fighter was ca­pa­ble of.
