Hi there. I m Joe. How can I help you have some serious RC fun today? Is there a product or accessory that I can help you with?
Hello this is Erik, I'm thinking about buying my first airplane with low wing the spitfire Mk xIV 1.2 m basic (EFL8650). I'm a beginner on this hobby I have several airplanes that have the safe technology and have high wing. I was told this is harder to fly. Would you recommend this plane for beginners?
Joseph C.
Honestly, I would not
I suggest the T-28 first
Does the T-28 have safe technology?
Joseph C.
It does not.
But if you have some experience, the T-28 will fit you well
Why is this easier to fly than the spitfire?
Joseph C.
Larger wing area and more of a trainer designed wing
If you want SAFE, look at the Corsair
Does it have flaps for lower speed
Joseph C.
It does not but flies well at slow speeds so flaps are not required
All right, thank you for your help.
Joseph C.
You are very welcome
