Absolutely nothing compares to a Pitts biplane. Critics around the globe agree—flying one will ruin nearly all other aerobatic experiences. First flown nearly 75 years earlier, to this day the Pitts strategies, sets, and completed biplanes that leave the Aviat Aircraft Business, are all extremely similar to the pioneering initial design. The E-flite® Pitts S-1S park leaflet is a homage to the Curtis Pitts design that distinctively integrates a genuine look with great handling for incredible performance any RC pilot can appreciate.

The E-flite® Pitts S-1S scale biplane is an officially certified reproduction of the major aerobatic icon that’s expertly designed and equipped to provide a flight experience that’s easy to delight in. The total dimensions distinctly capture the innovative Pitts lays out while EPO building and construction helps present scale detail with a high level of resilience. Although installing and removing the wings is incredibly easy and tool-free, this lovely bipe is sized so you most likely never need to take it apart. Like the major, under the hood is the type of power that differentiates this aerobat as a powerful entertainer with virtually unrestricted capacity. Ballistic vertical climbs, excessive snaps, crisp rolls and sharp corners are just a few of its specializeds. Scale pilots will appreciate its smooth flight performance and level of detail, while everybody will enjoy its power system flexibility. Whether you opt to fly this unique aerobat on a THREE or FOUR LiPo, this Pitts S-1S bipe will provide an aerobatic experience without equal.

Authentic Information
Besides the mindful focus on every overview, scale detail consists of the look of material covered building and construction, plus detents highlighting where panels and hatches are found on the full-size. The characteristic 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 area is nicely designated with a confined 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 THREE LiPo battery to provide an abundance of thrust and beyond-scale performance. Or you can set up a FOUR battery for ballistic, rocket ship-like vertical power and way beyond scale performance without the need for any adjustments or upgrades.

Tool-Free Field Assembly
Although sized to fit completely put together in practically any lorry, setup and removal of the wings is tool-free for the ultimate in convenience. Pins easily protect the struts into the wings while each center tough point is locked into place with adjustable locator pins and body clips.

Durable Design
Construction with durable EPO product makes it possible to reproduce complex detail in a lightweight kind. The outcome is an exceptional scale look that’s easy to preserve and enables the most satisfying flight experience possible to shine through.

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

If this is your first biplane, or you want an additional margin of security while acquainting yourself with the aircraft, you can enable the optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope protection technology constructed into the receiver.

With SAFE Select allowed, you get:

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 immediately returns to and holds level flight when the sticks are launched and in the center position. It’s also useful for keeping the wings level during departures and landings.

Easy change task—no programming needed
The easy treatment for designating a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select functions on and off doesn't require any programming and takes just a couple of seconds.
