The E-flite® Pitts S-1S park flyer is a homage to the Curtis Pitts style that distinctly combines an authentic look with great handling for unbelievable performance any RC pilot can appreciate.

The total dimensions noticeably capture the advanced Pitts details while EPO construction assists present scale information with a high level of sturdiness. Despite the fact that setting up and removing the wings is incredibly easy and tool-free, this stunning bipe is sized so you probably never have to take it apart. Like the major, under the hood is the sort of power that distinguishes this aerobat as a potent entertainer with essentially unrestricted potential. Ballistic vertical climbs up, dizzying snaps, crisp rolls and sharp corners are just a few of its specializeds. Scale pilots will value its smooth flight performance and level of information, while everyone will enjoy its power system versatility. Whether you opt to fly this distinctive aerobat on a 3S or 4S LiPo, this Pitts S-1S bipe will deliver an aerobatic experience without equal.

Authentic Detail
Besides the mindful focus on every summary, scale information includes the look of fabric covered construction, plus detents highlighting where panels and hatches are discovered on the full-size. The characteristic 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 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 3S LiPo battery to deliver an abundance of thrust and beyond-scale performance. Or you can install a 4S battery for ballistic, rocket ship-like vertical power and way beyond scale performance without the need for any modifications or upgrades.

Tool-Free Field Assembly
Although sized to fit totally assembled in just about any vehicle, setup and elimination of the wings is tool-free for the ultimate in benefit. Pins easily protect the struts into the wings while each center tough point is locked into location with adjustable locator pins and body clips.

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