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.

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.

Awesome plane

I’m going to maiden this beauty tomorrow. Motion was quick on the shipping as always. This is a very high quality plane for what I’ve seen from eflite recently. The battery tray is a nice touch, and the foam/paint is better than other eflite models I have. The biggest downfall are the decals bubbling off the entire plane. Looks like a child applied them. Not Motion’s fault. Whoever let them come from the factory like that should be ashamed. Assembly is super simple except for the struts. If you aren’t patient you could cause damage getting the pins in the struts. Once the pins finally go in, they are easier the next time. Not sure why you would take the wings off. considering it’s smaller size.

motion is awesome

I will start by saying that I have not received my Pitts yet. I ordered it about 1 hour ago and I just received notice that it's been shipped. It took less then 1 hour!!! I love Motion for it's service, but this is incredible?!!

Eflite Pitts

I maidened the new Eflite Pitts today, and its a winner. Definitely not a beginners model, even with AS3X, you have to stay ahead of it, just like the full scale. Flew great on a 3c 2200, had more than enough power, flew at 1/2 throttle most of the time and still has good vertical performance. Roll rate was enough to make you dizzy but it lacks in rudder authority. Battery compartment is roomy and the tray makes it easy to get batteries in and out. Landings are hot, definitely have to keep the power on and fly it all the way to the ground. It has probably the best foam and paint ive seen on a model. Its very dense and heavier than I would expect. Must have, 2 thumbs up.
