850mm E-flite Pitts S-1S Basic with AS3X - Bind-N-Fly (BNF) - EFL3550

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.

3200 venom 4cell

Flying my plane on 3200 4 cell 30c 50c burst. No issues with CG these batteries are 9.8 ounces light for 3200 absolutely no issues hangs off back of tray a little bit so you grab the battery itself to take out covers the ring on tray in back. No worries going an extra couple minutes in flight.

Landing gear upgrade.

The landing gear on the 850 Pitts is very hard to deal with between bending and dislodging axle from wheel pants put 3 inch SL Dubro wheels on without the pants plus landing gear upgrade kit available on EBAY for 10 dollars and the plane will be much happier on grass field's. So will you. Very simple kit easy install.

Good flier, But...

Bought this from my local hobby shop, First flight, on landing the whole gear assembly came off on rollout. Lucky, No damage, upon examination, There were only four little glue spots on the gear plate, Reglued, Now only after 5 flights it keeps nosing over on me, Took it home and discovered why, The left axle is .074 in. shorter then the right axle, And popping out of the collet in the outer pant housing, Thus binding up the wheel on landing, hence the noseovers. I will try to fix this, Or contact HH on this issue, Other then that, Great flier, On 3 or 4s, And YES, Those wing pins are a pain to get in, And my decals were good, But coated the whole plane in Minwax polycote Semi-Gloss.

Sweet flying aircraft.

This plane looks and flys great. Very stable and responsive. I bought the Pitts to learn aerobics on. Just Gota keep some power on when landing. Things I think need improving. Quality of the parts. The paint comes off the wings and fuselage very easily. The decals look as though they were applied by a 6 year old. The manual is not what your trying to assemble. Mainly the assembly of the prop. The landing gear/axle set up is weak. The outside of the axle rests in an indication on the wheel pants. If you land a little too hard, the axle becomes dis lodged and locks against the wheel pants causing the plane to flip on its back. Also, the design on the plane is a little bland like the wheel pants, no “Saddle” behind the canopy.....etc. I’m working on making it look/function (landing gear) a little better.

I Agree with Spar issue

Bit of a test of patience putting the wings on but worth the effort. Pay close attention to your manual trim setup and prepare for fun. Fly's like a dream. Plenty of power to hover on 3s and 4s is a blast.

Great flying airplane, has tons of power on a 4 cell. Very fast and flys sport aerobatics very well.

Beautiful little Pitts

I'm still working on it. I'm painting the white, yellow and adding a design to the wheel pants...which they seem to have forgotten. The decal/sticker application leaves some to be desired. Lots of bubbles at the sprues. I assume from off gassing. The decal edges have lifted in places, allowing white packing foam to get under and stick. The decals also are wrinkled at the wing tips due to the compound curves. I had to split the wrinkles and press them down. The wheels are hard as a rock and low bounce wheels are not available in this size. The pilot looks like a 5 year old kid sitting in there. You don't sit in a Pitts, you wear it. I am actually very happy with it after all is said and have no regrets buying it. I always enjoy a challenge and I love a Pitts. Buy one, you'll love it! Doc

Pitts

Good looking plane. Easy build except the struts needed some work, The pins that hold them to wings wouldn’t line up with pins.I had to sand the strut ends to get the pins to line up correctly.
