FMS 1400mm Pitts Ultimate Sport Bi-Plane - Receiver Ready (PNP) - FMS058

This 1400mm FMS Pitts is slightly updated. The servos are now all metal gear so customers don't have to worry about stripped servos during aggressive maneuvers. In addition the spinner has been upgraded to a far more durable 3 piece spinner. We feel these were the two major weak spots in this plane and both have now been addressed.


  • New redesigned spinner for much better durability and balance (as of 12/6/2013)
  • New version includes all 17g Metal Gear servos
  • Four ailerons for extreme aerobatic performance
  • Vivid, high contrast color scheme helps keep the plane visible during flight.
  • Powerful 360kV high-torque motor gives the plane plenty of power to perform aerobatics and 3D flight
  • Durable EPO Foam

  1. lots of power, it pulls like a larger plane would 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th May 2015

    out of the box it was great and even though the instructions are not very good i was able to get it together. i found as others the battery placement needs to have foam removed in the front of the fuse to be able to move the pack as far forward as possible. i kept trying larger packs and after getting to my 5000ma ones and still found it not to balance t the 90mm mark. closer to 100mm.. not sure how it will fly at that cg but others here are flying it with smaller packs and im sure those are not working out for the 90mm cg either.

    i found the rudder servo did not return to center very well even when not attached to the pushrod. so i replaced it with a kst 215mg heli servo i had laying around, wow it works great now

    the prop spinner combo needs balanced bad.. i had one blade that had to be made from lead. i sanded on it with still no proper results. i had to add black tape to the back side of the other two blades to get things balanced. my mustang fms v8 1400mm has a giant prop and it was spot on out of the box..

    cant wait to fly it. these pnp foam planes just amaze me

  2. What an FMS classic!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Apr 2015

    This plane has been on my list for over 2 years, but I just never pulled the trigger for some reason. Too many others to choose from, I guess? My hangar is so full!!! I don't know where I thought I was going to put it because there isn't any space.
    However, I caught this bad-boy on sale at Motion before they ran out. Boy am I glad I did. She's a beauty! I haven't maidened her yet because I want to customize the plane with other decals rather than the FMS plastering.
    Can't wait to get her customized and in the air. May re-review once she's done.

    Thanks again Motion. You guys continue to "ROCK"!

  3. Black elastic string wing support. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Apr 2015

    Just wanted to mention to those struggling with knots on
    the black elastic string and springs.
    The black tubing works really well and looks great when finished
    If you tie a half knot and pull the two ends really tight almost to the breaking point it will hold tight.
    Then finish the knot with another Half knot and pull tightly.
    The finished Knot is now super small and tight.
    To finish touch the knot with a dab of glue, after the glue dries trim the loose end close to the knot (carefully).
    Hope this helps!

  4. Sweet Pittbull Biplane in my hanger 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Apr 2015

    This Beautiful Pitt by FMS is the jewel of my fleet.
    She was a joy to build (a little challenging) but that's half the fun.
    And when she came together she stands like a pit-bull, Handsome, fearless and ready to play like my American Pit.
    The receiver was determined to be bad after Matt from Motion helped me to troubleshoot the problem and he sent a replacement right away
    The video is awesome and I can't wait to fly her.
    Thanks again Motion RC for your great support.

  5. Pitts 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jan 2015

    What a great looking plane. Easy to put together. My 4th from motion but not my last. Great support team.

  6. "rubber" wire 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Dec 2014

    I don't have this plane but I do have the Roc Hobby Waco (FMS) and after struggling with trying to tie knots with the supplied elastic cord, I thought of a neater and easier way to do it.
    I used some heat shrink, thin enough to allow the cord to pass thru it, thru the spring (or other connector) and back thru the shrink. Holding on to both pieces of cord after it came thru the shrink, I slid the shrink up to the connector, and made a couple of quick touches with my fine tip soldering iron. Clip off the short end of the cord, and you have a neat attachment. When you do the other end of the attachment, you can get nice tension on the cord and hold it until you treat the shrink. Caution: don't slide shrink up over the connector and apply heat judiciously.

  7. riot with the pitts 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Dec 2014

    this plane is everything I was hoping for in a pitts. first off I knew the Quality would be good because its a FMS. I have the FMS edge also. the only thing that keeps this plane from being 5 stars is that its basically a one piece airplane. at 55 inches its big. not a problem for me. I have a van. But performance is my main concern. At that it does shine. I ignored the suggested CG. and put the3300hundred6cell battery under the strap not as others suggested to jam it all the way forward up against the firewall. with no gyro the plane does all the usual aerobatics well, inverted flight, snaps,stall turns, rollers , knife edge. But what I do get a kick out of is the slow tail slide it does that turns into a fast torque roll. also it does great harriers. I did put the new A3 gyro in the plane. Im a big advocate of gyros. and the a3 works great. I have that set up for normal,gyro off,auto hover. with auto hover on you could do tail touches. I should mention that I did have the elevator servo crap out. luckly it was in a slightly up position and I could land the plane using throttle for alltitude control. I replaced the elevator servo with a hitec 82 servo. I have about 15 flights to date.

  8. Motion RC could you add the below to my review and make 5*'s 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Sep 2014

    This is a postscript to my original review. After flying this plane I just have to change the rating to 5 stars. This is, without a doubt, one of the sweetest flying foamies on the market and I've had a bunch. Power is great, handling is impeccable, and takeoffs and landings are a breeze. I have had a large 50cc Pitts and it's ground handling was atrocious. This 1400mm FMS Pitts exhibits none of the bad habits generally seen in the Pitts type planes. I have flown it four times and a 40C, 4000mah battery and am loving it. Overall, even with the minor flaws mentioned earlier in this review, the FMS Pitts is a beauty.

  9. Foamies have come a long way 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Sep 2014

    Foamies have come a long way. It has been a couple years since I purchased a new foam warbird/aerobatic foamy. This 1400mm FMS Pitts is light years ahead of anything being sold a couple years ago. That being said there are a couple reasons this plane only gets 4 Stars. Here we go. The quality on this plane is outstanding. Everything fit well and the whole plane went together and RTF in about two hours. That being said, there are a few things to note. It was hard to get the wing spars in. theye were a VERY TIGHT fit. The plastic center cabanes also took some fiddling and taping to properly glue on. Other than that everything fit and the servos were all centered. I note that some of the servo screws were loose and needed tightening. A note on the manual – it leaves a lot to be desired and the photos were faded, somewhat out of focus and hard to see what they were trying to show you.

    This plane has a lot of foam in it. There is very little to no open areas forward of the CG and that is one of the problems. I could not get this plane to balance on the advertized CG without cutting out foam in the front of the battery box and sliding the battery (4000mah, 40c, 6s) forward about an inch from were it fit with out cutting foam. The battery retension straps are totally in the wrong place and useless for holding down the battery. On my plane I'm using a block of foam under the front battery strap to hold the battery forward. I'm going to maiden the Pitts in a couple of days. Have both the stock prop and a 2-blade 17x8 APC with CF spinner to try out.

    I have installed an RCSound system in the plane. It's really a test for a system that will eventually go in a 1700mm FMS P-47. Becuase of the CG issues and lack of open space I had to limit the sound system to one speaker. Sounds pretty neat on startup. But the RCSound system really needs at least two speakers, the second being the bass unit. Unfortunitely that unit weighs 4oz!

    I'll post an update after it's maiden

  10. Awesome Airplane!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Jun 2014

    I had been eyeballing this Pitts for a long time, and even contacted MotionRC a while back asking if they were ever gonna carry it. Well, they obviously do now, and so now I have it. All I am gonna say is, WOW! It is a beautiful airplane that flies great. I opted to remove all the stock Graphics and do my own vinyl graphics install. It came out looking better than I could have hoped for. I am very pleased with my new Pitts, and everyone that sees it is amazed and impressed. Even my wife says, " It's the best looking airplane in the hangar".

  11. Super powered biplane! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jun 2014

    This Pitts has the same wingspan as my FMS P-51, but the Pitts is so much larger because of the thick fuse and biplane wings. At first I thought it was heavy with the Admiral 6s 4000mah battery in it, but boy was I surprised! This Pitts can take off in 10 feet and immediately go straight vertical! It can hover easily and snap roll and flat spin and lots of other moves. I was surprised by this plane in every respect. It is a great deal for the amount of plane you get. I just need to practice landing it without a small bounce because it is so floaty with all that wing area.

    I did not add the black wiring because the rubber tubing is hard to tie. I will probably just use black string or thread. It is just for looks anyway.

    I like how the tail group can be unscrewed, which helps me transport the big bird. Make sure you have a big car because the wings do not come off unless you modify them yourself. But unscrewing the landing gear and the tail group allows me to fit it into the back seat of a two door coupe so I guess it isn't that bad.

    Here is a heads up. I use the Admiral 6s 3300 pushed all the way forward in the battery bay. Ignore the velcro straps, they are too towards the tail for my liking. You can cut a small hole through the thin firewall to slide a 6s 4000 all the way forward, and that is even better. Long flights times about 8 minutes of mixed throttle.

  12. great plane 5 Star Review

    Awesome flying plane!!! Lots of power. Slows down nicely for landing. Very predictable

  13. Best Bipe Ever 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Apr 2014

    Upon constructing this Bipe I knew they were onto something. Bipes as usual have inadequate gear with all their inadequate pieces which fail on ther first maiden if not before. This Bipe was engineered and built with strength durability, and simplicity in mind. The build was a dream, no fancy gear parts which will fail. This is the first plane of about 40 in my squadron which instills simple engineering in all segments. This is only half of the plusses of this Bipe, the other half involve looks and flying. Bipes naturally have classic lines, and this one used premium foam and molds to turn out a real beauty, My father-in-law could not detect if it was foam or wrap. Flying is nothing short of predictable and graceful, with power to spare for all 3D maneuvers. I fly sport and am mesmerized by the size ans scale of the thing which lends itself to great scale flying due to size. You end up with a lot of crowd following this bird. Landing needs some speed 20% and will squeek it in by just a stabilized approach and gradually reduced power. This is a winner everyone should have along with MRC being a first rate team who are absolutely blowing away the competition on the age old business priority, ( Customer first, Custumer service first) I actually feel bad this week when I had to purchase a 6s Lipo from another vendor when MRC was out, but those are very rare occassions,

  14. Great plane 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Feb 2014

    I have put a few flights on this plane and I really like this plane, it feels bigger than 55" in the air. The only downside I came across on this plane is that the motor prop adapter has a nut made into the bottom of the shaft that the spinner slides over witch makes it hard to change over to a higher quality spinner. But I see no real need to change it now the V2 spinner has fixed the problems of the V1,

    Also I was very pleased this plane came with the new 360Kv motor.

    This was my first purchase from MotionRC and I must say I am very satisfied with my service. The packing was great and shipping was fast. I also had a hand written thank you on my packing list.

    I am looking forward to get a few more FMS planes from MotionRC!!!!

  15. Great go-to Flier 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Jan 2014

    This is my favorite Bipe in my fleet of 30+ warbirds, bipes, & edf's. When I assembled, it was very clear the designers at FMS did an excellent job as the build is straightforward and includes very strong components. The first thing that usually goes on a bipe is the landing gear. FMS has heavy duty gauge material which has not even bent through my 15+ landings so far.
    The bird is not only beautiful both on the ground and in the air, it flies on rails with no bad habits. The size makes it have a unique presence in the sky, and one can be graced with Its easy landings. This one is one of my daily fliers where I know I can have a great flight and landing and come away with a wide grin. One of FMS's top 3 alltime {flying for 2 yrs} GET ONE, THEY ARE FANTASTIC!!! and if you are a first timer to MRC, they will blow your mind with their excellent customer service as compared to other's.
