    Park Flyer Spitfire - which is best?

    Hi All,

    Trying to gauge people's thoughts on what they think the best park flying spitfire is. Balsa/foam irrelevant. Value for money is important. Build time is of interest but probably not a deciding factor. Performance and handling are obviously important. Park flyer scale, so probably nothing beyond about a 50" wingspan. Undercarriage preferred to belly landings. Scale appearance is important. How the plane looks in the air is more important to me than how she looks static, but nice up close would be good too.

    The two contenders I know of are the World Models Spitfire and PZ Spitfire, but I'm sure there are many many more out there. Do you have one? Are you happy with it? Good value for money etc?

    RE: Park Flyer Spitfire - which is best?

    well i work at a hobby store and we convinced my boss into buying a parkzone spitfire, it flew great on the stock set up no stalling no anything. i would give it my vote, try landing in low rates though a experienced flyer had a very difficult time trying to land it in a high head wind
    Well what can I say my friend, The Miracle of flight.

    The World Models Spit you mention is a great flier, and easy build, but not very scale. The Flying Styro kit is very scale, and does fly well. A bit trickier to build, and definitely not cheap for a foam plane. Alfa does not yet have a Spit. The new Parkzone Spit is getting good reviews, might be worth having a look at. Another one is the Hyperion model. Looks pretty nice to me.

    You can't leave out the GWS spitty. I just got one as a second warbird and am finishing up the build now. For $26 I got the slope glider version that comes white with no motor. This option lets you put on whatever paint job you want and also gives you a chance to use another motor if you want, instead of throwing away the stock motor. I spent $3.50 on acrylic paint, used another brushed motor I already had and she is really looking nice now for a very cheap budget. As for a good flyer, give me another week for good weather to maiden. I have heard lots of great reviews for this bird as a good flyer too. Anyways, that just my two cents.

    I agree that this is a great kit, but not really a park flyer. It is 25 size and has been clocked near 100mph, so you might get banned from a local park if you fly one there!
