Absolutely nothing compares with a Pitts biplane. Critics around the world agree—flying one will ruin nearly all other aerobatic experiences. First flown almost 75 years ago, to this day the Pitts plans, packages, and finished biplanes that leave the Aviat Aircraft Business, are all remarkably just like the pioneering original style. The E-flite® Pitts S-1S park flyer is a tribute to the Curtis Pitts style that distinctively integrates a genuine appearance with fantastic handling for extraordinary performance 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 expertly created and geared up to deliver a flight experience that’s easy to take pleasure in. The overall dimensions definitely capture the revolutionary Pitts lays out while EPO construction helps present scale detail with a high level of resilience. Although setting up and eliminating the wings is exceptionally basic and tool-free, this gorgeous bipe is sized so you probably never 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 unlimited capacity. Ballistic vertical climbs, dizzying snaps, crisp rolls and sharp corners are simply a few of its specialties. Scale pilots will appreciate its smooth flight performance and level of detail, while everybody will enjoy its power system versatility. Whether you decide to fly this distinctive aerobat on a THREE or FOUR LiPo, this Pitts S-1S bipe will deliver an aerobatic experience without equal.

Authentic Information
Besides the careful focus on every outline, scale detail consists of the look of material covered construction, 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 frequently found on high-powered variations of the Pitts bipe while the cockpit location is neatly selected 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 combine with a THREE LiPo battery to deliver an abundance of thrust and beyond-scale performance. Or you can install 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 completely assembled in almost any automobile, installation and removal of the wings is tool-free for the ultimate in benefit. Pins easily protect the struts into the wings while each center hard point is locked into location with adjustable locator pins and body clips.

Durable Style
Construction with long lasting EPO material makes it possible to duplicate complicated detail in a light-weight type. The result is an impressive scale appearance that’s easy to preserve and allows the most gratifying flight experience possible to shine through.

AS3X® Receiver with Optional SAFE® Select Flight Envelope Security
This Bind-N-Fly® Standard design is geared up with a Spektrum™ 2.4GHz DSMX® receiver including AS3X (Artificial Stabilization – 3-aXis) innovation that works behind the scenes to smooth out the impacts 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.
