Old scale spitfire take to the after 30 years

Postby Hotrod » Tue Apr 29, 2014 7:28 pm

After a few attempts to get Bryan's lovely old spitfire to run we finally got the old girl on the patch and up in the air ,the spit was a pure joy to fly and really well mannered a true credit to Bryan's building skills , unfortunately the 30 plus year retract servo's weren't so keen and refused to lock down hence the undignified belly landing
Hopefully this link will take you to the video ;) thanks to billy on film crew :mrgreen:
