HobbyKing® ™ Pitts-S12 Python (Yellow/Blue) EP 1370mm (ARF)

HobbyKing® ™ Pitts-S12 Python (Yellow/Blue) EP 1370mm (ARF)
HobbyKing® ™ Pitts-S12 Python (Yellow/Blue) EP 1370mm (ARF)

For many RC pilots, there is something really special about flying a Bi-Plane, and there is plenty about the HobbyKing® ™ Pitts S-12 ARF that is special! The Pitts Python is perhaps the ultimate Bi-Plane and this ultra high quality kit really does this amazing aerobatic aircraft justice, not only in terms of scale looks but also performance.

Just look at the quality of the balsa/ply construction and you will see a strong but ultra-lightweight design, and this theme continues throughout the model, carbon fiber control horns, composite/ply motor mount, pull/pull rudder control with rigging wire to stiffen the verical & horizontal stabilizer, glass-fibre wheels spats with large lightweight wheels, alloy cabane and so on.

The HobbyKing® ™ Pitts S-12 is designed specifically for electric flight and is also very practical, quick to field assemble, it features massive removable canopy with a quick release latch and a huge battery tray. This is a good size model that will require a 5s set up for sport flying, however, to get the best from this model, we would reccomend a low kv 6s set up.

god no unless u want to rip ur plane to bits, 160 is way to big i run a asp .91 2 stroke witha 15x7 prop and that will do everything u want it to, but dont run the 160 twin in it.

Would this model take an asp 160 twin,I think it would be good power for it .

If you want to tow bricks around then fine but otherwise it might be a bit too big. Try a 75-90.

1 thumbs up!
The wingspan of the Pitts is 1470mm, not 1370 mm as stated by HobbyKing. It's a big model for a bipe. Unsurprisingly, there's good and bad. The completed model is excellent, especially for the price. I'd certainly recommend it to anyone who's read the full review on RCgroups. Search on HobbyKing Pitts s12 Python

Manual is wrong about the C/G (center of gravity). If you follow the recommended value {65mm from leading edge of the bottom wing} then you are sure to place this model back to a kit form! Many little quirks found while assembling this otherwise beautiful model. Turnigy Dlux 70A 16x8 CF propeller from HK, Turnigy G60 400 KV gives this model plenty of thrust. 5S 5A battery Better to strengthen the bottom floor with HK 10x10mm square CF tube.
