The Spitfire Fighter is the most recognizable icon of World War II. From the throaty growl of its Rolls-Royce Merlin, streamlined fuselage, to its beautifully tapered elliptical wings, the Spitfire is a true aeronautical thoroughbred that is loved by all. Without a doubt the most famous combat aircraft the world has ever seen. It is a British national symbol for triumph over a superior German air force.
This highly capable fighter was nimble and fast and was much loved by its pilots, many of them trained in Canada
Our 1:72 Scale R/C Model Spitfire Mk XVI is painted in the markings of the RCAF’s legendary 421 Squadron (Red Indian Squadron).
This model pushes the state of the art ahead of all other competitors - Another First and Only from Plantraco - Leaders in Micro R/C technology.

|4mm Motor with 32mm Direct Drive Propeller
It's no Merlin! In fact it's a whisper quiet 4mm coreless motor. But this Micro Model still has plenty of thrust thanks to the 4mm Direct Drive Drive Propulsion system which is very quiet and efficient.
|Lightest R/C Receiver
The world's lightest R/C receiver is one of the reasons Plantraco models fly so well. Fully proportional, but without adding dead weight to the airframe. 0.38 grams! (That's 0.013 oz ! ) As lightweight as it is, it still comes packed with good features, like Plantraco's Bahoma magnetic battery holder system, Low Volt Protection, and more.
|NanoAct Magnetic Actuator
The NanoAct actuator adds only 0.065 grams to the Micro Spitfire! It's a 75 Ohm coil with Neodymium magnetic armature that moves the rudder at your command. It is a self centering actuator, and gives you an amazing 64 steps of full proportional resolution per side.
If you fly any of the Plantraco Micro Models around other people, prepare yourself, because you are going to see a lot of gaping mouths and eyes popping out of their sockets. And that's just when you hold it in your hand! In the air, everyone is going to be amazed at how well you are controlling it - they won't believe their eyes at first
That's the effect this model has on people - everyone loves it because it's such a cute little thing, but it's more than a cute demonstration of Micro Flying - it's actually quite a good performer
The low weight makes this model very durable in crashes. About the only thing you can break on this one is the propeller, and these are easily replaced.
It's nowhere near as easy to fly as the original Butterfly or Carbon Butterfly or even the new Classroom Fighters or MicroMAV - The Micro Spitfire is a bit tougher to fly than all of these, but it shouldn't take you very long to get used to it. Fly it at half throttle or 2/3 throttle and go easy on your stick inputs, it's quite sensitive - just go with the flow for a while keeping the plane in sight and work towards controlled level flight.
Highly recommended to all R/C'ers, add it to your collection of models, it's so small you can always bring it with you. This is the Spitfire You Have Been Dreaming About All Your Life!
