Absolutely nothing compares to a Pitts biplane. Critics around the world agree—flying one will ruin nearly all other aerobatic experiences. First flown practically 75 years earlier, to this day the Pitts plans, kits, and completed biplanes that leave the Aviat Airplane Company, are all remarkably much like the pioneering initial design. The E-flite® Pitts S-1S park leaflet is a tribute to the Curtis Pitts design that distinctively integrates an authentic look with fantastic handling for extraordinary efficiency any RC pilot can appreciate.

The E-flite® Pitts S-1S scale biplane is a formally licensed reproduction of the full-blown aerobatic icon that’s expertly created and geared up to provide a flight experience that’s simple to take pleasure in. The overall measurements distinctly capture the revolutionary Pitts describes while EPO building helps present scale information with a high level of sturdiness. Even though setting up and getting rid of the wings is exceptionally simple and tool-free, this gorgeous bipe is sized so you probably never ever have to take it apart. Like the full-blown, under the hood is the kind of power that identifies this aerobat as a powerful performer with practically endless capacity. Ballistic vertical climbs, excessive snaps, crisp rolls and sharp corners are simply a few of its specialties. Scale pilots will value its smooth flight efficiency and level of information, while everybody will enjoy its power system flexibility. Whether you opt to fly this unique aerobat on a 3S or 4S LiPo, this Pitts S-1S bipe will provide an aerobatic experience without equal.

Authentic Information
Besides the mindful focus on every overview, scale information includes the appearance of material covered building, plus detents highlighting where panels and hatches are found on the full-size. The particular wedge-shape fuselage is crowned with a scale spinner in a shape often found on high-powered variations of the Pitts bipe while the cockpit location is neatly appointed with an enclosed canopy and painted pilot figure. Optional-use flying wires for added scale looks 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 provide an abundance of thrust and beyond-scale efficiency. Or you can set up a 4S battery for ballistic, rocket ship-like vertical power and method beyond scale efficiency without the need for any modifications or upgrades.

Tool-Free Field Assembly
Although sized to fit totally assembled in practically any lorry, installation and removal of the wings is tool-free for the supreme in benefit. Pins easily protect the struts into the wings while each center tough point is locked into location with adjustable locator pins and body clips.

Durable Style
Building with resilient EPO material makes it possible to duplicate intricate information in a light-weight type. The outcome is an impressive scale look that’s simple to keep and permits the most satisfying flight experience possible to shine through.

AS3X® Receiver with Optional SAFE® Select Flight Envelope Defense
This Bind-N-Fly® Standard model is geared up with a Spektrum™ 2.4GHz DSMX® receiver including AS3X (Synthetic Stabilization – 3-aXis) innovation that works behind the scenes to smooth out the results of wind and turbulence so you take pleasure in a sense of stability and accuracy that makes it feel like you're flying a much bigger, expertly tuned aircraft.

If this is your first biplane, or you desire an extra margin of safety while familiarizing yourself with the aircraft, you can enable the optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope protection innovation developed into the receiver.

Pitch and Bank Angle Limits
These envelope restricts keep the aircraft from rolling or pitching upside down. They also prevent extreme climb or dive angles.

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