Absolutely nothing compares with a Pitts biplane. Critics around the world concur—flying one will ruin nearly all other aerobatic experiences. Very first flown almost 75 years ago, to this day the Pitts plans, sets, and finished biplanes that leave the Aviat Airplane Company, are all remarkably just like the pioneering original design. The E-flite® Pitts S-1S park flyer is a homage to the Curtis Pitts design that distinctly combines a genuine look with excellent handling for unbelievable performance any RC pilot can appreciate.

The E-flite® Pitts S-1S scale biplane is a formally certified reproduction of the full-scale aerobatic icon that’s expertly developed and equipped to provide a flight experience that’s simple to take pleasure in. The overall measurements distinctly catch the advanced Pitts lays out while EPO building assists present scale detail with a high level of resilience. Despite the fact that setting up and removing the wings is extremely easy and tool-free, this gorgeous bipe is sized so you probably never need to take it apart. Like the full-scale, under the hood is the type of power that distinguishes this aerobat as a powerful performer with practically unrestricted capacity. Ballistic vertical climbs up, 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 everyone will enjoy its power system adaptability. Whether you decide to fly this one-of-a-kind aerobat on a THREE or 4S LiPo, this Pitts S-1S bipe will provide an aerobatic experience without equal.

Authentic Information
Besides the cautious focus on every summary, scale detail includes the look of fabric 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 typically found on high-powered versions of the Pitts bipe while the cockpit area is neatly selected 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 features an ESC, motor and prop that combine with a THREE LiPo battery to provide an abundance of thrust and beyond-scale performance. Or you can install a 4S battery for ballistic, rocket ship-like vertical power and method beyond scale performance without the need for any modifications or upgrades.

Tool-Free Field Assembly
Although sized to fit fully put together in just about any vehicle, 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 difficult point is locked into place with adjustable locator pins and body clips.

Durable Style
Building and construction with long lasting EPO product makes it possible to duplicate complex detail in a light-weight type. The result is an impressive scale look that’s simple to maintain and allows the most gratifying flight experience possible to shine through.

AS3X® Receiver with Optional SAFE® Select Flight Envelope Security
This Bind-N-Fly® Basic design is equipped with a Spektrum™ 2.4GHz DSMX® receiver featuring AS3X (Synthetic Stabilization – 3-aXis) innovation that works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence so you take pleasure in a sense of stability and precision that makes it seem like you're flying a much bigger, expertly tuned aircraft.

If this is your very first biplane, or you desire an extra margin of safety while acquainting yourself with the airplane, you can allow the optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope protection innovation constructed into the receiver.

With SAFE Select enabled, you get:

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

Automatic Self-Leveling
The airplane immediately goes back to and holds level flight when the sticks are launched and in the center position. It’s also helpful for keeping the wings level throughout takeoffs and landings.

Easy switch task—no programming required
The easy procedure for appointing a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select features on and off does not require any programming and takes just a few seconds.
