RE: WHICH ENG FOR WM SPITFIRE 60

RE: WHICH ENG FOR WM SPITFIRE 60

RE: Ultimate 40S Flight Question, First Time Flyer

You'll probably find it lands much like your warbirds. like most planes you should use the throttle to manage decent and drop to idle just a hair before or right at touch down. It will land a bit...
