Ground Shipping Items

Some RC Planet's products can only be transported under ORM-D (Other Regulated Materials for Domestic transport). Shipping under ORM-D means that the product will ship via FedEx Ground only, and cannot be shipped outside of the US. These products include:

  • Non-Water Based Paint and Paint Thinner
  • Petroleum-Based Oil
  • Aerosol Type Products
  • Traction Compounds
  • Tire and Body Cleaners
  • Epoxy / Accelerators / Debonder

The US Postal Service will not transport ORM-D items, and will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.


For All Shipments: Special labeling requirements are needed to safely transport any Lithium products. Certain large Lithium Batteries will always require HazMat handling and will only ship via Fedex. If you would like to know more about FedEx and the safety precautions taken when transporting Lithium Batteries, please refer to the FedEx guidelines.

International Shipments: Lithium Batteries are regulated as HAZMAT (Hazardous Material) products and can be dangerous if not packaged properly for transportation. In smaller quantities, Lithium Batteries can be shipped via DHL without applying a HAZMAT fee. If you'd like to ship more than 2 Lithium Batteries, a HAZMAT fee will be applied for transportation. Please note that DHL only allows transportation of HAZMAT / Dangerous Goods to specific countries, some of which have limited service areas.

The US Postal Service prohibits international mailing of Lithium Batteries, as well as electronic devices that contain Lithium Batteries. These new regulations also prohibit shipments to or from Army, Fleet, and Diplomatic Post Offices. Because of these regulations, no US Postal Service shipping options will be available during checkout.

Domestic Shipments: Both FedEx and the US Postal Service are available as shipping carriers for most Lithium Batteries and electronic devices containing Lithium Batteries. Please note that the US Postal Service has a limit of three batteries per shipment; you can refer to the Domestic Mail Manual for further information.


Fuel is classified as a "flammable" liquid. RC Planet can transport limited quantities of flammable liquid under ORM-D (Other Regulated Materials for Domestic transport). Shipping under ORM-D means that the product will ship via FedEx Ground only. For larger quantities of fuel (Example: case quantities), it must be transported under HAZMAT. Transporting as HAZMAT means that the amount of fuel is considered hazardous and will be subject to shipping by Ground services, including a HAZMAT fee for the special transportation. Fuel cannot ship outside of the US.

Please note that the US Postal Service does not transport Fuel and will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.

Rocket Motors

Rocket Motors, Rocket Igniters and Rockets are classified as »Toy Propellant Devices« and can only be transported through Surface Mail with the US Postal Service's Parcel Post. FedEx does not transport Rocket Motors, Rocket Igniters and Rockets. Please note that FedEx will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.

International Shipping Restriction Batteries:

Due to circumstances and regulations that are beyond RC Planet's control, batteries cannot ship outside of the US when using the United States Postal Service as the shipping provider. However, RC Planet can ship batteries internationally using DHL International, but the quantity cannot exceed a total of 2 batteries with a capacity of 5000mah maximum. Unfortunately we are currently unable to ship this item to APO/FPO addresses and apologize for the inconvenience.

More information about Top Flite Spitfire MK IX Gold Edition Kit TOPA0140

Top Flite Mark 9 Spitfire Gold Edition version of the famous British warbird. Developed in 1942 to equalize the threat of the German Focke Wulf, the Spitfire MkIX proved to be a key factor in England's air defense. Top Flite has now brought the Spitfire MkIX to life in a stunning R/C kit. By combining the Spitfire's rich combat heritage with Gold Edition assembly ease and authenticity, Top Flite has created a superb reproduction of a vintage aircraft.

Perfectly fitting, CAD-engineered wood parts ease building, with very little carving necessary. A precision-formed ABS cowl, wing fairings and exhaust stacks, along with a clear canopy and many other details, supply impressive scale realism. An elliptical wing with Selig airfoil provides stable, forgiving warbird flight. An extensive hardware package, complete with wire rod-in-tube pushrods, comes with the kit, along with a high-quality, photo-illustrated manual and full-size plans.

Many detailed accessory options are available.Heavy-duty, formed 3/16" wire landing gear is provided, or you can add standard retract gear. The realism extends to authentic retract movement-the gear pulls back at a slight backward angle, true to the full-scale fighter. The wing leading edge comes preshaped-and overall, there's extremely little carving required. The Spitfire's all-balsa exterior provides the ideal surface for easy finishing. Top Flite includes a generous supply of high-quality hardware.

With Top Flite's optional In-Cowl Muffler, you can enhance scale accuracy by concealing your 2-stroke, .61-.75 engine in-cowl. Requires also using Top Flite's Muffler Header for O.S.®, SuperTigre® S-Series or G-Series engines. The scale tailwheel location is only one example of Top Flite's attention to realism. The rudder and elevator surfaces are ribbed-and after covering film is applied, they appear to be authentically fabric-covered. The Spitfire's fuselage is large enough for straightforward radio gear installation-and it still allows plenty of room for the optional scale cockpit kit and retract air tank. The kit's instruction manual explains how to install retracts step-by-step.

This model lets you carry the scale realism as far as you like, with numerous accessories and building options available. For example, the detailed, photo-illustrated instructions explain how to create these operational split flaps. All surface detail typical of the WWII Spitfire MkIX is provided with Top Flite's Gold Edition model-notice, for example, the exhaust stacks along the kit's nicely fitting, precision-formed      

Optional Cockpit Kit
An optional, precision-formed scale Cockpit Interior Kit for the Spitfire MkIX is also available. Easy to install, the kit includes seat, instrument panel and many other impressive details-a great addition to your model!
