See the Spitfire fly again in all its glory with an economical gasoline engine! Replica retracts, flaps and camouflage color scheme!
The legendary WWII fighter credited with the rescue of England at the height of the WWII struggle has been recreated as an impressive and economical gasoline engine model. Elegant elliptical wings and the rounded form of the fuselage have been immaculately reproduced down to the finest detail, including retractable undercarriage and split flaps that also replicate the function of the original Spitfire. While the large size produces a calm and controlled flight style, the throttle can be opened up to generate the agile stunt flight of a fighter plane. Intermediate to advanced fliers will especially enjoy the sporty flying characteristics in a scale model of this detail. The economic benefits of gasoline versus more expensive glow fuel will also be realized over a period of time. The fuselage is mostly pre-assembled and includes gasoline engine with corresponding parts and the complicated camouflage color scheme of the original is also completed with printed film. Spectacular through the air and as a display, the SPITFIRE 90 gasoline engine version recreates the romance and drama of history.

What’s different about a gasoline engine?
"Fuel efficient! Low cost!"
●More than twice as efficient as glow fuel engines. 1 tank provides more than 10 minutes of flight time.
●1 liter of gasoline is 170 Yen + 25cc of oil is 25 Yen (as of September 2008). Compared to glow fuel: 1 liter is 1,000 Yen. Gasoline engines are overwhelming cheaper to run.
●Fuel needs to be mixed. Gasoline 25-40 : 1 part oil mixture is suitable.
●Silicone tubes or other silicon parts cannot be used. All special parts that are required are already included.
