I just did a preliminary weighing of the 46% Pitts, ouch, I'm a pound over at 34. I still have to cover and paint, add flying wires, spinner and cockpit. How did you guys come in on weight compared to the rated/listed weight?

Re: 58% Modellbau Pitts Build Thread - BBT

Hello RC Community of Canada,

Just acquired a EMHW Pitts S1 3.04m. In process of reviewing this thread. This is one of the most detailed build threads I have discovered for the Pitts. I will be referencing it many times throughout my build.

Thanks an kind regards,
Jaketab

Trevor's Pitts was built, flown for 2 or 3 seasons & ultimately sold a few years ago. I did get to watch it fly & have several photos of it in this album dedicated to it.

Anurag... great chatting with you via email. Good luck on this build and good luck with the 35% ChallengerIII project also

The 58% Pitts was always a show favorite the way it lumbered around in the sky with the sound of that sweet 4-stroke. So far the most scale plane I've ever had a chance to fly so far!!

Re: 58% Modellbau Pitts Build Thread - BBT

Hi Trevor,

I will be scanning these pages over the next few months for pics and tips for the build. I was wondering if you ever considered putting up your build pics of both the planes on google drive? That way guys like me could access them easily for reference. Maybe you should even consider writing an instruction manual Bet yours would surpass whatever exists... by the way I don't have one... Can you email me the manual pls?

thanks,

Cheers
A
