FlightLine Spitfire Mk.IX 1600mm (63") Wingspan - PNP - FLW303P

The Supermarine Spitfire is one of the most popular warbirds in history. This British single-seat fighter was used famously by the Royal Air Force and the Allies, earning distinction during the Battle of Britain and throughout World War II. Over 20,300 aircraft were produced with more than 24 variants. The Spitfire’s versatility and maneuverability in the hands of skilled pilots made it a lethal weapon against Axis forces. The timeless Spitfire continues to fly in modern times as a tribute to aviation history and military veterans.

After a large outpouring of requests from customers to upsize its smaller 1200mm Spitfire, FlightLine’s 1600mm wingspan Spitfire Mk.IXc is approximately 1/7 scale and an entirely larger beast with all the bells and whistles we’ve come to expect from aircraft in the 1600mm Class. This Spitfire is molded from EPO foam, featuring a scale shape and smooth surface. The main wing is assembled from hollow foam parts and an interlocking plywood and carbon fiber frame, providing lower weight and higher strength than a solid foam wing. The main wing and horizontal tail are attached with screws for very convenient transport, and proper ventilation is also designed to keep the electronics cool. The large battery hatch and removable battery bay floor provides easy access to an organized battery and receiver compartment, including space for an optional flight stabilizer gyro.

This elegant model aircraft is equipped with a 5055-390KV brushless outrunner motor, 80A ESC, and scale 4-blade propeller. With the recommended 6S 4000-5000mAh lipo battery, the Spitfire MK.IXc has a level top speed of 125kph/75mph, with tall vertical power and 6-10 minutes of flight time depending on throttle management. Delivering capable grass handling performance, the main landing gear use shock absorbing Oleo struts, a main wheel diameter of 85mm, and a tail wheel diameter of 45mm. Metal reinforcement plates, 5mm thick steel strut pins and axles, and metal trunions work together with the suspension struts and soft wheels to dampen the forces caused by operating this aircraft on rough runways. The FlightLine RC 1600mm Spitfire Mk.IXc was optimized for sport scale performance, gentle handling, and an almost effortless flying experience, suitable for intermediate pilots and above. Importantly, a very predictable stall and power on recovery make the aircraft easy to control throughout all stages of flight. Day-Bright LEDs also aid in visibility of this large and beautiful foam electric model aircraft.

The FlightLine 1600mm Spitfire arrives completely painted. To personalize your Spitfire, included in the box are two optional decal sets, depicting the aircraft of Squadron Leader F.A.O. Tony Gaze (MA621 DV-A) and Lieutenant Michel Boudier (BS393 GW-Z). We are proud to partner with Callie Graphics (, with whom we’ve prepared a wide line of optional decal sets for separate purchase to further customize your new Spitfire!

      Product Updates:

      • September 11, 2018  -  The FlightLine 1600mm Spitfire recommends a 6S 5000 mAh Lipo, but can be flown on an equivalent weight 4S pack at a higher throttle setting.  Extra special care for CG must be taken, since the 6S 5000 is typically pushed all the way forward, meaning a 4S would need to be an equivalent weight.
      • August 9, 2018  -  For modelers with access to a 3D Printer or who want to use a third party 3D printing service, we are offering for a limited time the original .STL files for free download.
