Like the full-blown, under the hood is the type of power that differentiates this aerobat as a powerful performer with essentially unlimited 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 performance and level of information, while everybody will enjoy its power system flexibility. Whether you opt to fly this distinctive aerobat on a THREE or FOUR LiPo, this Pitts S-1S bipe will deliver an aerobatic experience without equal.

The particular wedge-shape fuselage is crowned with a scale spinner in a shape typically discovered on high-powered versions of the Pitts bipe while the cockpit location is nicely designated with a confined canopy and painted pilot figure. Optional-use flying wires for included scale appearances are also included.

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

Tool-Free Field Assembly
Although sized to fit fully put together in almost any vehicle, setup and removal of the wings is tool-free for the supreme in benefit. Pins easily secure the struts into the wings while each center tough point is locked into location with adjustable locator pins and body clips.
