Product Details


The workhorse of the Battle of Britain and classic unsung hero comes to the Balsa Basics range with its understated style sheer brute force.

Paint this fellow up with camo and you’ve got a very convincing warbird to take to the skies above your favourite flying field.

Customers have told us that they can’t quite believe just how stable and forgiving the  Balsa Basics Hurricane is when put through its paces. It will fly uncannily slowly for a low wing fighter and (whisper it) probably makes a better first warbird than the iconic Spitfire.

Build your Hurricane in around a day using the easy to follow step-by-step instructions and chunky laser-cut balsa and ply wood parts that slot together before glueing. Iron on the heat shrink polyester covering and you’re pretty much ready to go.

More Detailed Than You Might Think

Although clearly meant to be a very simple, fun-scale model of the Hurricane, this aircraft does come with exhaust stacks, oil cooler, vacuum-formed plastic canopy and self-adhesive markings sheet.

The aircraft can be covered and finished in a variety of ways to bring it to life - this kit really is a blank canvas for you to use to build the Hurricane you want to fly.

Easy Battery Access

There's plenty of room in the battery compartment for a 3s LiPo battery up to a 2200 (which is the recommended size for this model).

Belly Lander

To do away with complex and fragile retracts, the Balsa Basics Hurricane is a belly lander. A quick underarm launch and you're up in the air with landings over grass in a field or park a cinch.

Help & Resources


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.


Smaller items

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.

Larger items

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.
