Mike Masheter’s Spitfire built from the Yellow Aircraft Kit.  The model is 1/5th scale.  As can be seen from the photographs the model has flaps and retractable undercarriage which is sprung and damped.

Model is powered by a Super Tigre 3000 engine which has been converted to run on petrol.  The spark for the engine is provided by Prospark electronic ignition using a 4.8v nicad.  The model is sprayed with Flair paint.  For control Mike uses a Futaba 9ZAP with a double battery system.
