    HobbyKing.. Pitts S12 with a gas motor ???

    I need some help .
    Just ordered a HobbyKing. Pitts S12

    [[link]http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=19107[/link]

    now it has it marked as having a
    Wingspan: 1370mm / 54in and
    Wing area: 45.9dm2 / 712sq.in

    Reviews have the wingspan as 1470mm/57in, not 1370mm/54in;
    wing area as 1040 sq in not 712sq.in


    I know it will need some reinforcing done but I would like to go with a gas motor .
    What size motor would you recommend 15cc or 20cc ?

    A 15cc gas motor would fly it well at around 8lbs but i think a DLE20 would be to heavy. I would think the best thing to do is to order the kit and when it arrives go with your gut.

    Fly light, fly fast and fly low.

    One has to be careful aBOOUT ORDERING FROMM hOBBY kING. When the products work they are fine but if you plan or having them honor their warranty, forget it. I ordered two of the 2.4 8 channel Fasst receivers for my Fatabo. I was able to bind one to my radio but could not get the other to bind. I attempted to return it for either a refund or replacement. Guew what? After over one month of communication with their warranty department they claim they never received it and the only way they will honor the warranty is to inspect the idem. The receiver was mailed to the address they gave me which they said was correct with the correct returning numbers on the envelope yet they claim after one month they never received the item. Like I said, order at your own peril..
