Standard with metal gear like a Hitec 645 may work on the ailerons,I would have something beefy and 6 volt in the tail.Why maiden a big machine with low end servos

2nd that.... Anything bigger than a .46 size plane and should be using something better.....

I have seen stadard servos on lager planes but they use the most Inner hole on the servo horn and had large, highly placed control horns..... to get the most holding powr...

You have to realize that this will serverly limit surface travel........

Question, would a Saito 325 fit inside the cowl? and what are the cowl dimensions.

Thanks Rcten

Can this plane even be bought? I thought Cox went out of business.

I sure don't think it's a dog. I've got about 20 flights on mine with a G-62 and really like the way the model flies and looks. I don't do 3D so can't comment on hover, blender, etc capabilities, but it definitely flies scale-like Pitts manuvers. The G-62 is more than enough power, a 50cc engine would probably be best choice for power/weight.

Problems encountered so far:
- The clevis's supplied for the flying wires and tail braces are junk. The threads strip when tightened.
- The holes in the metal standoffs that the tail bracing wires attach to are way too big and allow excessive play.
- The front of the cowl is beginning to show small cracks developing around the edge. I've reinforced with FG cloth and resin.
- The top of the firewall has delaminated slightly. I've reinforced the area with epoxy and wood screws. This seems to be holding up fine.

Overall, I think the Pitts is a pretty good model and worth the price.

Hope this helps
What prop you running with the G62?

I agree, that's why it's gonna be my Christmas present. I think this one is bigger than the one that SD Models and Aeroworks were selling.

Edit: It's about the same size. 2" shorter, top wing and about a 100 square inches on the wing area.

I received my Pitts M12 today, In a word absolutely beautiful, a diamond in the ruff. The Saito 325 will fix perfectly, just hope she has enough power to fly the pitts in a scale like fashion, not looking for unlimited vertical, just good aerobatic capabilities.

You're right on, this plane is beautiful. Great buy at $425 shipped. Wish I could get another for a spare.

I Have One Of These For Sale If Anyone's Interested. I Assembled It For A Guy I Know, He Flew It Twice And Got The Bug For A Motorcycle And I Bought It Back From Him. I Never Got To Actually See It Fly. I Really Don't Need It And Would Just Like To Sell It. Just IM Me If You're Interested. I Check RCU Every Day So I'll Get Right Back To You.

The manual is very nice, color photos and everything. The only problem is with the CG. They state the range of the CG in inches, but they don't say where to measure it at. I'm guessing you measure from the leading edge of the top wing. Anybody know for sure?

MrBigg, The Cg is measured from the leading edge of top wing as per article in Dec. 2007 issue of Fly RC magazine.

Thanks. I think that Saito will fly the plane. Beef, nice bench. Did Jim ever tell you what "Shotgun Red" weighs in at? He's running that Saito radial in that. I'm thinking it's over 20 pounds.

What does that radial put out ?? I ran into Steve Gray at Menards last night and he was telling me that his hobby shop is pretty much closed. He might be selling it all to Brian.. The book on that bipe of mine said 30cc to 70 cc.. so that 48 twin should be fine..
