    FT Spitfire rebuild with new nosecone fairing

    Rebuilding a Spitfire... found the original to be one of the best-flying, most simple, elegant and fun RC planes EVER. Stuck a huge e-Flite motor in it and 4s 1300 mah for crazy vertical and life-affirming powaaa. But have been struggling to deal with the open-nose area. Also not happy with the...

    3D Printable FT Spitfire Retracts

    Swappable Fw 190 - Build thread

    Inspired by 808aerosquadron's P40 and NewZee's Piper Cub I got the idea to try and make my favorite warbird as a swappable too. Ever since I first flew the Focke-Wulf 190 in the online flight sim Warbirds back in the mid 90's it has been my favourite plane. The speed, the fast roll rate, heavy...

    Ft Spitfire removable landing gear suggestions.

    So I just finished my ft spitfire and I LOVE it. But I want a landing gear that I can easily take on and off. Does anyone have any ideas or any creations of their own that they can share? Thanks, Knife-edge
