430mm E-flite UMX Pitts S-1S Basic with AS3X - Bind-N-Fly (BNF) - EFLU5250

The E-flite UMX™ Pitts S-1S airplane makes it possible to enjoy the aerobatic icon of the century in your own back yard. Even more remarkable is how predictable this beautiful bipe handles. That’s because its AS3X system has been custom-tuned to deliver stability when you need it and agility when you want it. The result is a scale aerobatic flight experience similar to that of an expertly tuned giant-scale model. And the best news of all is that you can enjoy it right away because there’s no assembly required.

SCALE CHARACTER
The UMX™ Pitts S-1S is designed so that the distinctive scale character comes through without sacrificing the performance benefits of a light wing loading. Not only is detail like rib and stringer detents obvious, even the landing gear and tail wheel represent the celebrated features of an aerobatic platform many full-scale pilots still use to this day for aerobatic competition.

HIGH-OUTPUT BRUSHLESS POWER SYSTEM
The high-output brushless power system installed consists of an 180BL, 3000Kv outrunner motor and an E-flite 5 x 2.75 propeller. Together they provide ample thrust for realistic scale aerobatic performance.

STATE OF THE ART ELECTRONICS
From the solid control of AS3X system technology, to the crisp response of performance linear long-throw servos, everything about the UMX Pitts S-1S is about delivering a solid scale aerobatic experience. Even though it’s sized to fly just about anywhere, you get the precision and performance to fly like you’re in an air show.

THE SCALE AEROBATIC BIPE YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED
The Artificial Stability – 3 aXis (AS3X) system developed by Horizon Hobby is an electronic innovation that makes the RC flight experience better than ever. By developing a unique combination of multi-axis sensors and exclusive software, the AS3X system in the UMX™ Pitts S-1S ultra micro biplane works behind the scenes while flying to provide instantaneous attitude corrections when turbulence, torque and tip stalls haphazardly interrupt the way you want to fly. The obvious benefit is an airplane that flies incredibly smooth but also delivers control that feels natural and utterly accurate. The result is an experience similar to that of flying a much larger, well-tuned scale model that’s remarkably convenient to fly.

Love the plane

I knew it would be a tad flimsy. An aileron horn was broken. But Motion RC shipped me a new wing set to fix it. Fantastic service! I'm going to fly this when I travel via Amtrak. It is small enough to treat like a suitcase!

Not in air yet

I live in Michigan, the weather hasn't broken yet. But the plane came in great shape and can't wait to try it out.

E-flite Pitts UMX

This plane is awesome!! This was my second purchase of this aircraft, the first time I didn't really have the skills for it and it didn't last long, but provided you have first had some experience with more docile UMX planes you will love this one!! It is a very maneauverable aircraft and lots of fun to fly!!

Micro UMX Pitts S -1S

This was a replacement for a defective and returned unit. Everything worked correctly with this model, however, while the original model sat straight on its landing gear and the flying wires were not taunt, but were "straight", This model listed badly to one side and the flying wires,while glued in securely, are loose enough to bow out noticeably. I found that if the gear wire was properly seated in its molded in slot, The plane listed badly to one side. I had to pull out the gear wire up and insert a carbon fiber shim under it in order for the plane to sit straight. There is nothing that I can do about the "bowed" flying wires, as they are glued in securely. But while I was a little disappointed at having received a replacement with those problems, I am great full that Motion RC quickly replaced the defective model.

Wonderful Flying Pitts

Became my favorite plane on it's maiden flight! I set it on the ground and after a short roll out. It took off virtually on its own. Flew it for about half the battery back before I realized that I forgot to trim it out, gave it two clicks of down to keep her level at full throttle, that's it. Very easy and predictable at low rare, set mine at 70%, 25% expo and really snappy at high rate 100%, 35% expo. Touch and go and landings were all 3 pointers. It comes in super nice without floating at all! Love it and thank you Motion RC for the $20 March Madness discount!

Awesome plane. My favorite micro. AS3X makes this plane great.

This plane is incredible. It is my favorite of about 30 different styles I have owned. Bipes don't handle crashes very well, so if you crash, you can expect to replace some parts. It is good to keep extra wing supports. I tried making them stronger, but that just makes the plane break worse in other locations. It is easy to replace a wing brace rather than the whole wing set. This plane can fly inverted, and recovers easier than a lot of planes. I love this little gem. I wish I could buy them in other colors or unpainted, so we can have several people flying this same plane at the same time.

Amazing Flyer !

This little Pitts flies like a much larger plane and handles the wind with no problem. I use the admiral 250 mah with an adapter and love it. I usually don't buy eflight planes but this is well worth it. This plane is sooo much fun!
