Default 63" Ebay Spitfire

This plane has me intrigued. There is not a whole lot of info. Anyone know what make it might be. He sells a 800 watt motor for it as well.

Just found another guy selling it for a few more bucks, has better pics

What are some of your thoughts?

Wow, it looks nice BUT it appears you must remove the wing to change batts: a REAL PAIN.

I emailed the guy and asked him about that and any other info he could give considering the info is vague at best.

I have an HK spit-the cowl area battery hatch is ideal.

I have a World Models spit with the wing/bat situation, and if it is like that, I'd say avoid it, UNLESS you take more than 1 plane to the field.

Otherwise, it looks nice-not scale, but nice.

I looked at the other pics from the other guy and it looks like the top does not come off. For a plane that size I think it would be a poor design if you need to take of the wing.
