Dynam has again produced a great model, the Supermarine Spitfire MK.VB 1200mm seaplane. This is the first WW II float-plane fighter in the RC aeroplane market and has the great manoeuvrability and flexibility in flight compared to other general float-planes.
The historical background behind the Spitfire MK.VB float-plane was at the beginning of the war in the Pacific against Japan, the concept was that a float-plane with good performance would be an essential asset in the island campaigns, so a spitfire W3760 MK.VB fighter was refitted with floats and it was a huge success. The maximum speed reached for the MK.VB float-plane was 324mp/h (521km/h). The Dynam Supermarine Spitfire MK.VB 1200mm seaplane brings the familiar scale outline of this special aircraft.
The Dynam Supermarine spitfire MK.VB 1200mm seaplane replaces the retractable landing gear of Dynam Spitfire 1.2m warbird with double water floats and rudders. The rudders can steer the seaplane on the water accurately. The aeroplane which designed as a fighter has great flexibility and manoeuvrability in the air.
The Dynam Supermarine Spitfire MK.VB 1200mm seaplane is powered by a BM3720A-KV650 outer-rotor motor, 50A ESC, 4 blade prop and when coupled with a 14.8V 2200mAh 25C battery this aeroplane has the sufficient power to fly for on average 6 to 10 minutes.
