  • Product Description

    The FT Spitfire is the 10th design in the swappable series and the first of which that is a warbird. This is the perfect gateway into scale-like flying and is also a good introduction into four channel flying. This plane is great for beginners and or experienced pilots who are looking for scale lines without the unforgiving flight characteristics of most scale warbirds. This was achieved by taking the wing of the FT Cruiser and heavily modifying it with the unmistakable elliptical Spitfire wing shape, increasing the size of the under cambered wing tips and adding dihedral. The result is a very forgiving scale warbird that flies just as good as it looks. 

    Will ship within 3 business days.

    1. Crashed at the post office

      My first crash with the spitfire happened some where while in the possession of the post office. I called FliteTest after hours. Soon after I was contacted by email telling me some one would contact tomorrow. They did My crash was resolved because of the awsome coustomer service by team Flite Test. Yes I would recommend doing business here!!! on 13th Feb 2017

    2. Excellent products from Flite Test

      Before buying this plane, I bought the Mini Raptor and I really liked the packaging and the speed with which it was delivered. I followed the YouTube video to put it together and everything was easy and fast as shown in the video. I think the video is better than any document or blueprints. The plane flies excellent once you get used to throwing it into the air. I have always taken off my Radio Control aircraft from the track. The great experience with the Mini Raptor is the reason I bought the Spitfire which is my favorite plane. It arrived very fast and very well packed. Once I set it up and fly it I will share my experience. I also bought a P-51 Mustang. So I have enough and exciting projects thanks to Flite Test and its creative products. Congratulations Flite Test! on 23rd Nov 2016

    4. Great Kit

      The speed build kit arrived as promised, in a timely manner and in great condition. As usual the parts were cut accurately and cleanly.
      The only problem I had was playing the speed build video. My computer kept buffering. The people at Flite Test are the best.

    5. Spitfire speed build kit

      The plane looks cool and flys great even with an engine smaller than recommended. I chose the standard foam instead of the water resistant version so when I painted it the colors were consistent. The only strange thing is there were no plans with the kit. The video is much better than plans though so I still give it 5 stars. This is my first purchase so maybe the no plan thing is normal.
      If you love flying but not building, this kit and the others like it are for you. I've been flying for almost 40 years and not a novice and I love this product!

    6. Awesome plane!

      Can't fault this design, beautiful characteristics!! Really easy flying warbird with a decent speed and aerobatic envelope. on 15th Aug 2016


      Yes, I bought this kit well before I was experienced enough to build or fly it. But I set it on the shelf for a year while I built a bunch of other FT designs meant for newbies like me. When I got back to it, I discovered that it was a really easy build. Everything went together as shown in the video, and although I made a few mods, it came out with lines very much the same as it's full sized relative... Beautiful.

      Having never flown a 4 channel before, I was a little nervous on the maiden. But it flew very much like a trainer! The term "flies like it's on rails" makes so much more sense to me after having flown this! It is really a joy to fly, and an excellent intro to 4 channel flying, and it can still be very aerobatic if you can do those kind of things. Excellent design. Excellent build experience. Excellent flier! Great job with this one FT, you knocked it out of the park!

    8. Awesome war plane

      This was my first foam board build so I opted for the quick build kit and it was just that quick! The plane goes together quickly and your progress shows so you don't get discouraged or board of building it! The plane fly's like a champ it really is fun to fly! Thanks guys on 12th Jun 2016

    9. Fantastic Build

      Upon receiving this kit I unpacked it and inspected all the parts. The packaging was great and all the parts were cut out perfect. The plane went together really well and I coated it with different color packing tapes to make it my own. The video on youtube for this plane was great, but if you have built the FT plane before it is pretty much streight forward and a video is not needed. All in all this was a great plane to build and if you are in the market for a war bird, this one is surely the one to fit the bill. on 16th Jan 2016

    10. Beautiful Spitfire

      This is my first purchase and absolutely love the Spitfire kit. The first time I saw your video I wanted one because it has all the beautiful lines that the real one has.
      I can't wait to put mine together. I will be painting mine in RAAF colours too.
      Thanks for putting out a fantastic kit and could you do a P40 Kittyhawk kit in the same scale.
