MOC: Technic Spitfire

Well it's been just over six months but I've finally finished my Technic Spitfire. This has been one of the largest and most time consuming builds I've done and I'm glad I've finally finished it to be honest. First a bit of info about it:

Wingspan: 90cm
length: 86cm
Propeller diameter: 29cm
Motorised Engine and Propeller.
Motorised Landing Gear.
Working Rudder, Elevator, and ailerons controlled from the cockpit.

Now we move on to the pictures. First up a few different view of it overall.

Next up a close up of all the functions and interesting bits.

A close up of the propeller so you can see the design a bit better. I'm quite pleased with how this turned out.

A close up of the engine and XL motor that drives the engine and propeller.
The final gear ratio is 5.001:1.

The left side is for the ailerons and the right side is the landing gear.

Close up of the M motor that powers the landing gear.

Close up of the control surface control system.

The tail section. This was a bit of a pain to get right.

The rear of the tail section.

The original way I did this was with gears but that made the Elevators way to loose so I came up with this instead.

A close up of the landing gear down.

A close up of inside the Cockpit.

A view from the cockpit as if you where sitting in it.
Next up a couple of pictures with the landing gear up.

Finally a video of all the functions.

And thats it. I hope you like it. :)
