Hey guys, just bought a 33 percent PItts and i hear its quite the plane to land. Anyone ever have one with a 50cc engine?? Ive had people tell me reinforcing the firewall should be done with heavier plywood. True??
When flying inverted, down is up and up is expensive.

Re: 33% Pitts Special

Hi I have had one of 4 years and never had an issue with the firewall even with an oooops landing. The only issue I had was the lower wing flexes to much so I used the brace wires.
My observation only. Everyone is different.
