Re: Nitro Models Pitts 40

Forgot to mention but should for anyone building this ARF that when mounting the center cabane pay attention to the mounting location. There are two stringers running under the sheeting from the canopy to the firewall under the sheeting. The stringers are 3/8 in wide. The four cabane attaching wood screws to the fuselage MUST anchor into these stringers or you will be screwed to only the 1/8 in balsa sheeting which will not hold the cabane to the fuselage. look carefully inside the fuselage from the underside for the stringers prior to drilling. Harden the drilled holes with CA and the mount will be as solid as possible. Have read where others have lost the top wing in flight. The outer struts are angled inward at the bottom. Do not tighten the mounting bolts overly as there will be too much force applied to the wing mounting points.
You can fall a thousand times but you're never a failure as long as you try to get back up.
