Default Brushless PZ spitfire ! - at last

Just thought I would share my thoughts after finally modding the pz spit to brushless ! I went the hole way (thanks for all the advise on the forum) and went for a e-flite 480 and boy the thing flies !!!! almost unlimited verical and would guess at around 70ish level flight !

I also changed the single aleron servo to a hs81 and slightly longer servo arm (will eventually mod to 2 servos) and the roll rate is really improved !

for anyone thinking of thie mod ! go for it !

Thanks again for all the advise on this !

Good deal. What prop are you swinging?


I think I'd said - the Dubro 2" black spinner is perfect for the Spit.

I used the HS81 in both my FW190 and Spitfire when i made them brushless, never have had any problems with that servo; good choice.
