The big brother of the E-flite UMX Pitts, this 33" wingspan version is sure to pack even more exhilarating thrills and unbridled fun! We have yet to find someone who has flown the UMX Pitts who doesn't just like it but absolutely loves it. Ourselves included! So at Motion RC, we think it's a safe bet this larger version is going to be another fantastic joy ride with the aerobatic punch to boot.
The E-flite® Pitts S-1S scale biplane is an officially licensed replica of the full-scale aerobatic icon that’s expertly designed and equipped to deliver a flight experience that’s easy to enjoy. The overall dimensions distinctly capture the revolutionary Pitts outlines while EPO construction helps present scale detail with a high level of durability. Even though installing and removing the wings is incredibly simple and tool-free, this beautiful bipe is sized so you probably never need to take it apart.
Like the full-scale, under the hood is the kind of power that distinguishes this aerobat as a potent performer with virtually unlimited potential. Ballistic vertical climbs, dizzying snaps, crisp rolls and sharp corners are just a few of its specialties. Scale pilots will appreciate its smooth flight performance and level of detail, while everyone will enjoy its power system versatility. Whether you choose to fly this one-of-a-kind aerobat on a 3S or 4S LiPo, this Pitts S-1S bipe will deliver an aerobatic experience without equal.

Eflite Pitts 850mm
This is nice size rendition of the real Pitts Special. Easy to assemble and binds easily with the AS3X receiver, maiden was straight forward also. Good performance on 3s but on 4s it’s a blast, dose all the acrobatic in the book. I liked it so much I bought a second one. Get one you won’t be disappointed!
I fly on a grass field that is rough.The plane is too heavy and the gear too soft , it also doesn't slow down enough to do a soft landing. The plane looks great. Maybe I should just hang it up and look at it!!!
Not maidened yet
Arrived quick, well packed and everything intact. Build is easy,struts are tight. The only minor knock, is the finish is a flat red, and the decals look cheep. Can't wait to fly her.
Assembling the 850mm Pitts S-1S.
Pretty sturdy looking model, especially the landing gear. Should never have an issue with them!. Assembly of the wings and struts is a different story...this model uses the pin-thru-matching -holes technique to secure the wings to the cabane and interplane struts. It was nearly impossible to get the holes in the struts to align with the holes in the wing tabs out of the box. Dremel tool modifications were required in 3 of the 4 interplane connections to get the 2 sets of holes lined up. Same thing with the cabane struts atop the fuse. This is definitely not a "drop-in" assembly and requires some unique solutions to an imperfectly designed kit. A little more QA by the manufacturer would have made a tremendous difference during assembly. Unfortunately, weather has delayed its maiden flight to date.
belle machine très très vive avec un DÉFAUT. - la fixation de la bulle perdue dés le premier vol ... et très chère
THIS IS A FINE FOAM MODEL. LIKE THE FULL PAINT AND WHITE ACCENTS. OLNLY PROBLEM WAS THE SMALL PINS THAT HOLD THE WING STRUTS ON THE WINGS SEEM TO BE LOST IN THE INSTRUCTIONS OTHER THAN THAT, GREAT PLANE, I WILL BE ORDERING ANOTHER.
Nice little Pitts
My only real complaint is that the spar pins were relatively difficult to get in, but it's small enough that I don't anticipate having to disassemble it. As far as flight goes, I elected to install the FrSky S6R receiver, and it was on rails with gains at 35% on all surfaces and the gains channel at 50%. A little more and it starts to get a little wobbly. I tested with both 3 cell and 4 cell batteries, it seems to prefer the 4 cell for immediate power, and the 4 cell seems to provide a longer flight time, but flies well with 3 cell. You will get significant P-factor during takeoff, despite the weight this is a really big motor for the size of the plane, so be on the ball, don't just slam the throttle. Other than that, most of my experience is with aerobatic planes, so it flew pretty much how I'd expect, people used to trainers or GA style planes might find it's landing profile a little aggressive, but it will stop shortly after touchdown with a doughnut if you ask it to. Seemed pretty stable on the ground, no sign of trying to dip the wing, so the wheel base is wide enough. Fun fact, it weighs as much as the much larger Dynam SU-26, but overall I'm much more satisfied with the quality and flight dynamics. Just like most E-Flite planes, once it's assembled, it'll fly well.
