Default Cermark Pitts S2B

I recently aquired a Dave Patrick designed Pitts S2B made by Cermark. It was complete except for the assembly manual. Does anyone have or know of a cooy I can buy or copy? Thanks in advance. - tucano007

Is this the ARF or is it the kit?

There was quite a bit on the web about the top wing separating during flight. I had one come apart during straight and level flight. Talked to mister Patrick after this happened and he told me that after selling the design he had no control over changes made by the new owner. From the pictures he mentioned that it appeared the design and quality of wood left a lot to be desired. The center section was riddled with mold and this you could not see with the covering in place.

It's a shame to have that sort of situation with an ARF that cost just under 400.00. I had met the owner of Cermark a couple times at a California trade show. He was friends with my employer at the time. After experiencing their business model first hand this sort of thing comes to no surprise to me. Since leaving the industry I have not purchased a single item that they produce.

I have the manual and would be glad to copy it for you. I am currently redoing my Cermark Pitts S2B, stripped
the covering off and building a new tank platform, going gas this time around, formerly powered by a Super Tiger
2300 glow engine ( guzzled fuel like crazy). BTW which color scheme do you have, the red one or the blue & white one?

Bill..
That would be much appreciated. Is there a way I can compensate you for the copy charge? I have the Red color scheme. I am planning on putting a DLE 20RA in it. I have a H9 Christen Eagle II 90 size with a DLE 20RA in it and it is a little hot rod!

It's in the mail, you should get it in about 4-5 days is my guess.

Got the "Thank You" note in the mail today, glad to be of help, that's what is great about this hobby
people helping others.

Are you going to do an assembly thread here on RCU? I would like to post some pics of my "Refurb
Project" Cermark Pitts S2B if you don't mind.
