SPITFIRE KIT + ELECTRONICS
This airframe with electronics kit builds into a superb 4-channel RC model of the Supermarine Spitfire
With a 40” (1016mm) wingspan and wing attached with rubber wing bands, it’s large enough to see and fly in a moderate breeze, yet small enough to transport easily in your car.
Easy to put together, this bundle includes our "C" Speed Electronics Pack with 2215 1180kv brushless motor, ESC, 4 x servos and 1045 propeller.
Simply add your radio gear and battery of choice.
You will have to provide your own covering. We recommend Oracover, but any polyester heat shrink material should do the job.

Most orders are shipped via Royal Mail’s Tracked 48 service.
For larger or heavier orders, we use UKMail/DHL to deliver your package on a Next Working Day service.
Shipping is free to UK Mainland addresses for orders over £30.00, otherwise we charge £6.00 for Royal Mail Tracked 48 parcels and £12.00 for UKMail/DHL Nest Working Day.
Items that fit within Royal Mail International Tracked Medium Parcel parameters (59cm x 17cm x 15cm weighing less than 2kg) can be sent to most countries outside the UK.
For example up to 3 of our smaller 18” wingspan kits can fit into one of these parcels.
A parcel like this currently costs around £14 to Europe and around £18 to send to the USA and will take up to 3 weeks to arrive. This is because Royal Mail hands over the parcel to the local Post Office service for your country who have to clear it through customs and then deliver it to you.
The Royal Mail tracking code also transfers over to the tracking for your country’s postal service.
For items that do not fit within Royal Mail International Tracked Medium Parcel parameters, we use standard international couriers such as DHL, FedEx and UPS.
These companies use something called volumetric weights to calculate the cost of shipping.
For example, a Balsa Basics RC bundle kit that measures 102cm x 34cm x 16cm and weighs 2.5 kg is actually calculated at 14kg!
This makes these very expensive to send outside the UK - a large kit can cost nearly £40 to send to France.
Goes together quite easily, took a bit of time to work out what went where, had to rerun the instructional video a few times
