Once again Durafly has done an outstanding job in reproducing this iconic aircraft. Incorporating the sleek lines of the full-sized aircraft, adding amazing scale detail and delivering a superb finish, Durafly has spared nothing in bringing you the best rendition of a Mk24 Spitfire in this size. This model is painted in 80 Squadron markings whos Spitfire Mk24’s were based in Hong Kong until 1952. Some Spitfires were then transferred to the Hong Kong Auxiliary Air Force who used them until 1955. This updated model comes with ball link connectors on all control surfaces and uprated 550KV motor, 45A ESC and 5-bladed propeller for superior performance.
The MK24 was fastest and the most powerful variant of the Supermarine Spitfire ever made! It saw service with the RAF from 1946 to 1955 and with the new Rolls Royce Griffon motor, it was one of the most advanced piston-engined aircraft of its time. Capable of speeds in excess of 450mph and with the ability to reach 30,000 ft in only eight minutes, the Mk24 certainly carried on the proud heritage of R J Mitchell’s prototype.
With servoless electric retracts, split flaps, navigation lights as well as an authentic colour scheme, it will certainly satisfy the scale afficiados and as for flying, Durafly’s powerful outrunner motor coupled with the new Aerostar 45amp ESC ensures that the MK24 Spitfire is capable of ‘straight up’ vertical performance on 4S but still can provide great scale performance. The Mk24 inspires confidence in flight and will certainly wow spectators as only a Spitfire can and on the ground it’s large rudder and steerable tailwheel have been designed to improve handling and its forward raked main gear makes takeoffs and landings far easier and more scale like.
Durafly has certainly ticked all the boxes with this version of the renown Mk24 Spitfire and added yet another thoroughbred to it’s growing stable of warbirds.
