The Ultra Micro Mk lX Spitfire is the first ultra micro warbird to feature pre-installed AS3X technology, which in addition to making the aircraft very stable for a low-wing fighter also allows it to be flown outdoors in less than perfect conditions.

This all foam rendition of the WWII RAF icon has a wealth of scale detail for such a small airframe. An accurate World War two grey-green colour scheme is the base for authentic Mk lX decals; further scale details include moulded panel lines, a crystal clear canopy and dummy cannons. Quite remarkably for a model this size it also flies with a scale looking four bladed propeller.

Fixed undercarriage comes as standard but it’s simple and quick to remove and an easy hand launch and belly land back on the ground allows the Spitfire to emulate all of the full-size Spitfire manoeuvres smoothly and with ease. In fact, thanks to the AS3X technology its performance is more akin to flying a much larger model.

Onboard electronics of the Spitfire feature a pre-installed Integrated Receiver - ESC- AS3X unit for automatically enhanced flight stability and three SPMSA2030L servos for precise control.

Thanks to the AS3X system the days of flying twitchy, erratic little models is over. Flying micro-models that would otherwise have a hard time dealing with outdoors in slightly windy conditions is also over and whole lot easier.

Ultra Micro Spitfire Mk IX BNF

During the Second World War the advances in technology made by one country were soon caught up with or overtaken by those of the opposing country. This was never more clearly demonstrated than in the development of fighter aircraft that strove to gain that all-important “air superiority” over opponents.

However, such was the success of the Mk IX it was kept in production far longer than anyone imagined and formed the bulk of Fighter Command’s equipment during the middle war years. The Mk IX came in several versions; low altitude combat with clipped wings, high altitude with extended wing-tips and the mass-produced normal fighter version.

Normal armament was two cannons and four .303 calibre machine-guns, although the "E" wing was introduced on the Mk IX giving an armament of two cannons and two heavy calibre .50 machine-guns that gave much better range and penetrating power than the earlier rifle calibre machine-guns. At medium and high altitude the Mk IX was superior to the FW190, although the Focke-Wulf excelled at low altitude. Later "long-nosed" versions of the FW190 regained the edge over the Mk IX but by then still improved Spitfires were waiting in the wings to regain mastery of the air.

It was the Mk IX that began the process of establishing air superiority for the Allies over Europe, an air superiority extended and maintained by the long range American P47 Thunderbolt, P51 Mustang and P38 Lightning fighters. Thought by many RAF pilots to be the best Spitfire ever made, some 5,665 Mk IX Spitfires were produced by wars end.
