Apparently, the Pitts was just under 90% scale & had a 521 c.c. engine. There's a thread on Flying Giants


Sadly, it crashed in Isreal not much later than the video. Viewer discretion advised. The pictures are enough to make you weep!

Re: Bigger then 1/2 scale Pitts Special S1

I just don't understand some of these giant scalers....for a few extra bucks, why not build a kit plane and fly it your self?

great clip, nice plane.

Re: Bigger then 1/2 scale Pitts Special S1

These scale builder can always walk away from a crash if they fly it with a radio. Not always the case if they are in it.
What do you mean , I can land upside down

Not everyone can get a pilots license either. I hear you on the cost factor though.

Re: Bigger then 1/2 scale Pitts Special S1

I got to twiddle the sticks on Trevor's 58% when he brought it to our Arnprior Club one day! It was a blast!

That thing in the video is just massive, though! I wouldn't want to fly an RC plane that big! It hurt enough putting in a 35% let alone something that huge!
