Fly Your Own Spitfire For $239
By James Grahame
The AirField RC Spitfire is about as close as I'm ever going to get to flying a classic warbird. It features a respectable 55 inch wingspan, with a 2.4 GHz 5-channel digital proportional radio control system and a brushless electric motor.
The pachage includes everything you need to get flying except a LiPo battery charger, which costs an extra $35 to $99.
The EPO foam kit includes the motor, 14.8V 2200 mAh battery, five servos and an electric retractable landing gear system. You can save $20 by opting for fixed landing gear, but the aircraft won't look nearly as sleek in the air.
The only problem I can see is that it won't be long before someone shows up at the airfield with a matching Messerschmitt Bf-109, eventually leading to a horrific mid-air crash.
