Spectacular Spitfire

¼-scale Battle of Britain Superstar

George Shone stunned the crowds at the Woodspring Wings Show in Bristol UK, with his Flying Legends ¼-scale Supermarine Spitfire. Modeled from one of the Spitfires for the 601 Fighter Squadron, George’s amazing warbird has a 110.24 inch wingspan, is powered by an Evolution 80cc gas engine turning a 26×10 carbon fiber propeller and weighs 48.5 pounds. The Spitfire is equipped with two Futaba receivers controlling futaba servos. It is equipped with Unitracts retracts with functional Oleo landing gear struts.

George says the model flies really well and has no major , but can be a handful on the ground like the full size Spitfires. The full size fighter was involved fighter-bomber operations in Italy and was built by Vickers Armstrong in 1943.

  1. Nice plane and great flying..

  2. One comment….
    Throttle management.
    I pylon race we leave the left stick fwd.
    In a scale airplane doing repeated high speed flybys gets old quick.
    Doing a scale routine would be a bit better presentation.
    Don’t get me wrong high speed flybys are fun.
    Sparky

  3. I would like to see more aerobatic manuevers. Maybe if it had been flying with another plane (maybe a German one), this would be more interesting. Great plane, though.
