Nothing compares with a Pitts biplane. Critics around the globe concur—flying one will ruin nearly all other aerobatic experiences. First flown almost 75 years back, to this day the Pitts plans, sets, and ended up biplanes that leave the Aviat Airplane Business, are all remarkably just like the pioneering initial style. The E-flite® Pitts S-1S park leaflet is a homage to the Curtis Pitts style that distinctly integrates a genuine look with terrific handling for incredible efficiency any RC pilot can appreciate.

The E-flite® Pitts S-1S scale biplane is an officially certified reproduction of the full-blown aerobatic icon that’s skillfully developed and equipped to deliver a flight experience that’s easy to delight in. The overall dimensions clearly record the revolutionary Pitts outlines while EPO building and construction helps present scale information with a high level of durability. Even though installing and getting rid of the wings is incredibly simple and tool-free, this stunning bipe is sized so you most likely never ever need to take it apart. Like the full-blown, under the hood is the kind of power that distinguishes this aerobat as a potent entertainer with practically endless potential. Ballistic vertical climbs up, dizzying snaps, crisp rolls and sharp corners are just a few of its specialties. Scale pilots will appreciate its smooth flight efficiency and level of information, while everyone will enjoy its power system adaptability. Whether you decide to fly this unique aerobat on a 3S or 4S LiPo, this Pitts S-1S bipe will deliver an aerobatic experience without equal.

Authentic Information
Besides the careful focus on every overview, scale information includes the look of material covered building and construction, plus detents highlighting where panels and hatches are discovered on the full-size. The particular wedge-shape fuselage is crowned with a scale spinner in a shape frequently discovered on high-powered versions of the Pitts bipe while the cockpit location is neatly designated with a confined canopy and painted pilot figure. Optional-use flying wires for added scale appearances are also included.

Abundant Power
The high-power brushless power system includes an ESC, motor and prop that integrate with a 3S LiPo battery to deliver an abundance of thrust and beyond-scale efficiency. Or you can set up a 4S battery for ballistic, rocket ship-like vertical power and way beyond scale efficiency without the need for any adjustments or upgrades.

Tool-Free Field Assembly
Although sized to fit fully put together in just about any automobile, installation and removal of the wings is tool-free for the ultimate in convenience. Pins easily protect the struts into the wings while each center difficult point is locked into location with adjustable locator pins and body clips.

Durable Design
Building with resilient EPO product makes it possible to replicate complicated information in a lightweight form. The result is an exceptional scale look that’s easy to maintain and permits the most satisfying flight experience possible to shine through.

AS3X® Receiver with Optional SAFE® Select Flight Envelope Defense
This Bind-N-Fly® Basic design is equipped with a Spektrum™ 2.4GHz DSMX® receiver including AS3X (Artificial Stabilization – 3-aXis) innovation that works behind the scenes to ravel the impacts of wind and turbulence so you delight in a sense of stability and precision that makes it seem like you're flying a much larger, skillfully tuned aircraft.

If this is your first biplane, or you want an extra margin of safety while acquainting yourself with the plane, you can allow the optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope security innovation constructed into the receiver.

With SAFE Select made it possible for, you get:

Pitch and Bank Angle Limits
These envelope limits keep the plane from rolling or pitching upside down. They also avoid extreme climb or dive angles.

Automatic Self-Leveling
The plane instantly goes back to and holds level flight when the sticks are released and in the center position. It’s also valuable for keeping the wings level during launches and landings.

Easy switch task—no shows needed
The simple procedure for assigning a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select functions on and off doesn't need any shows and takes just a few seconds.
