Pitts Python Model S-12 PNF 1067mm EPO (AUS Warehouse)

The Pitts model 12 is arguably the BEST aerobatic biplane designed by the master - Curtiss Pitts.

By today's standards, it seems incredible that the first Pitts Special flew on only 55 horsepower or even the 90-hp Franklin engine it was soon upgraded to - but fly it did, and superbly. Nearly 50 years on the current incarnation of the Pitts Special still holds it's own against the current crop of composite Aerobatic monoplanes.

The Pitts Python model 12 is specifically designed around the Russian radial Vedeneyev M14P/PF 360 - 400HP engine. The full scale airframe manages to merge traditional wood, metal tubing and fabric covering with modern Carbon fibre and titanium.

The end result is a 3800ft per minute climb, 175mph cruise, a low 62mph stall speed and strength to take +8,-6 G's.

Our gorgeous Python is a striking looking 1067mm all EPO model, being Plug and Fly it is 80% factory assembled with pre-fitted servos, motor/ESC and realistic paint finish. The wing struts and rigging wires are functional - adding rigidity to the airframe, they are also removable for transport. The Python's power comes courtesy of a 650kv brushless outrunner via a 50amp ESC and a 4S 14.8V 2200mAh Lipo battery. The assembly time is minimal - at most one hour!

The Pythons flight performance is phenomenal, she will eat up any aerobatic routine you can throw her way and her presence in the air is undeniable - this one's a keeper!

Just got this plane and running through the parts and noticed something strange on the vertical stabiliser. Can anyone tell me if the vertical stabiliser should have some kind of bracket that slides into the foam section that inserts into the fuse for the screws to screw into from the bottom of the tail section. There certainly looks like there should be and I can't see we're the screws will hold if there isn't.

Is it possible to do 3d with this plane? also can i use a 3s battery in this plane? will it still have enough power to take off?
 NightCrawler 196 points
Yes its very capable plane, and no its designed for 4S, would not advise 3S

Hello, can anyone tell me about this plane, whether it would be a good beginner to intermediate plane, because i have experience with high wing and mid wing trainers, like the cessna 172. is it fast? can it do aerobatics? How prone is it to stalling? also how long flight times would i get out of a 2200mah 14.8v lipo? Thankyou for your advice :)

Very keen to try this plane out, but I usually stick to Durafly because i can get spare parts for it when disaster happens. Usually when I buy a new plane I also order 3-5 spare props with it for example. What is the spare parts situation like?
 NightCrawler 196 points
Itsa d y n a m plane , so you can get spares, just not from hk

Comes with a spare prop mate! but its better served by a 13x8 apc or similar. Spare parts well give me a call and ill let you know where to get them. Its a ripper model flys well a s a sporty or even mild 3D. let me know if you get one id definitely get another :)

Hi there, im wondering if it will get in the air with a 3s 2000mah ? Thanks!
 KaosKane 1722 points
Yes! and you will need to go to a bigger prop so use or buy a watt meter to keep Amps within the motors range or the magic smoke in the esc/motor may come out HTH

I would advise using 4S not 3S. It performs great on 4S. 3S will need motor and prop mods to fly well. Its 3D capable plane so 4S is what you really want though IMHO.

BTW: I would not suggest this as a first plane. Its an advanced plane. Its very stable, but way too capable to learn on

Ordered Monday, on my door step Wednesday cant beat that for Oz! Well packaged, doubled boxed as usual, not bent parts, no missing bits. Very well detailed, smooth finishes, looks absolutely fantastic. Took only 1hr 15mins to assemble. Little glue required, as many of the parts screw together, but still applied a dab here and there. ESC is tucked away in the nose out of reach and sight, may be an issue with cooling and future repairs/mods. Motor seemed jumpy, my need to adjust timing on ESC, this will be interesting. Can't wait to maiden on Sunday

Had this a week now and its great.
RC groups has a thread on this model full of great info on the mods needed.
I reinforced the motor mount , threadl locked all motor screws (they are very loose) Replaced elvator and rudder servos and added carbon fibre to rudder as its warped out of the box.
Maiden was easy , only needed 2 clicks of rudder trim. Stock prop is good but have a 13x8 on order. Takes a wide range of packs from 1800 4s to 2650 4s . Takes up a bit of room in the car but its worth it

Great little plane, 40-50min to assemble and great performance out of the box with 65c 2200 4s. I will probably swap out the servos to some hitecs or HD's i have laying around for a laugh, was a very worthwhile upgrade on the EPO Sbach.

Really happy with this so far. Put some larger wheels on for grass but basically stock. Gotta get cg right otherwise looks and flys beautifully .

Came well packaged, double boxed etc. Easy to put together. I had to change to motor timing to try and get rid of the clunking at low speeds, still there a bit, but will put up with it. I put hot glue around threads on all screws and fitted hose over the clevises. Also cut some holes around the cylinders to let some air through the fuselage. Will probably fit larger wheels for landing in longer grass. Did the maiden this morning and this plane is a delight to fly. Takes a bit to slow down for landing, but i'm used to using flaps on war planes to slow them down. RC groups have some great tips on a few mods to keep this plane flying well. The only gripe is the shipping cost ($40), but its a huge box.
