The total dimensions distinctly catch the innovative Pitts details while EPO building and construction helps present scale detail with a high level of toughness. Despite the fact that installing and removing the wings is incredibly simple and tool-free, this lovely bipe is sized so you probably never need to take it apart. Like the full-blown, under the hood is the kind of power that differentiates this aerobat as a potent entertainer with virtually unrestricted potential. Ballistic vertical climbs, dizzying snaps, crisp rolls and sharp corners are just a few of its specialties. 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 distinctive aerobat on a THREE or FOUR LiPo, this Pitts S-1S bipe will provide an aerobatic experience without equal.

Authentic Detail
Besides the mindful focus on every overview, scale detail consists of the look of fabric 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 often discovered on high-powered variations of the Pitts bipe while the cockpit area is neatly selected with an enclosed canopy and painted pilot figure. Optional-use flying wires for included scale looks are likewise 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 requirement for any adjustments or upgrades.

Tool-Free Field Assembly
Although sized to fit fully assembled in just about any vehicle, installation and removal of the wings is tool-free for the ultimate 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.

Durable Style
