RE: parkzones Spitfire IX
The Bf 109 is a challenge for both take off and landings..... I have been flying it for two years and it still have a difficult time landing it right side up. Usually flips in the grass....
On another note, the battery for the Spitfire is the same as the Extra 300. I ordered a spare last month and just checked....it is still backordered until sometime in November. To me, this the the biggest drawback to the Parkzone;s.....Horizon has a terrible time getting parts for many or all of the planes. I had to wait a few months for a new Bf 109 motor last year.
