    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    Olivier,

    very strange that you post a reply right now ... I was just sending you a private Email. You should get it soon.

    Probably Belgian telepathy

    Cheers,

    I believe that I have debugged the download script. If anyone else has problems with the download please let me know.

    Thanks.

    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    Could someone please tell me how to explain to the printer how to print the file so that I get the proper size of plans when they are done being plotted.
    Mine that I asked about yesterday are not to scale and are about 10" short on both the wig and the fuse since they both measure 58.25"
    Thank you

    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    Art,

    The paper size for each of the plans sheets is 40" x 128". The heavy border line is only 36" wide, however. So the printer needs to either print on paper that is at least 40" wide, or must center the drawing on a 36" sheet, and NOT scale to fit the sheet. The likely cause of the printing problem is that the printer is scaling the 40" drawing down to a 36" width. Hope that helps.

    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    hy ! that's the european modeller again
    special thanks to the belgian desiner[8D]
    plan are great great great ! (great Β³ lol )
    the printers/ploters may need a calibration sometimes
    i saw it a few years ago on a old system printer./plotter
    il consist in ; drawing a square from a well known size, print/plot this square and measure directly on the paper to correct plotter's settings in regards of the "well known" measure of the square.
    this might help if the answer of rgunder was not a total solution but i believe he got the good solution

    bye ;-)

    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    Hello Everyone.

    Time to spark a great debate (pun intended). I want to hear opinions on engines for the Pitts. Gas or Glow? O.S., MVVS, Zenoah, Fuji, Magnum, others...? 2-stroke or 4-stroke? Hmmm... can't wait to hear back on this.

    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    well,
    a friend told me a DA50
    i dont have a DA but well a ZG62.
    I think that on medium or large models engine's choice is very wide so advices too.
    My ZG is a bit heavier but more and less the same power...? with a good exhaust...?
    In regard of the final weight too... i began to modify a bit the model's parts (adding holes in ply wood parts)
    gonna feed back here...

    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    I may be a bit bias about this, but Im thinking this is a great canidate for a conversion engine. Cost came up as a subject near the begining of the thread about getting the kit cut, so why not continue cutting some of the costs and do an engine converion instead of buying one. Now I will duck behind my imaginary shield and fend off all the shots headed my way ..... DUCKING ....

    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    Olivier,

    I like both of your engine selections. The DA50, beyond being a great engine just looks great. My concern with the DA50 is the prop size. To keep the prop diameter down, a 3-bladed prop would be required, and the DA50 will swing a 20" 3-blade! But again, great engine.

    Has anyone had experience with the Fuji-Imvac BT-43?

    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    As I have the first parts now on my workbench, I am currently thinking about the following two engines:

    - a ZG62 is currently doing a fit check on my workbench together with the parts of the cowling; that might work; and I am flying this engine on an Extra 230 with the new SEP props (German manufacturer) of size: 3 blade 20"x10"

    - I like the design of the Rotomotor 35VPi. Seems to be lightweight and powerful. Would probably fit into the cowling and weighs far less than a ZG62.

    Now my problem: Is it possible with a light motor to reach the correct CG without additional trimming mass? Does somebody already have experience with this design, e.g. the prototype?

    Greetings, Bernd

    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    For those of you who did not get the email announcement, I would like to let you know about a price reduction on the Pitts short kit.

    Here is the excerpt from the email that I sent out earlier:
    "The first piece of news is that we have worked to reduce the cost of the Spirit of Pitts short kit, and we are passing the savings on to you! As of sending this email, the price for the short kit has been reduced by $30 to only $195!! And we have changed our shipping policy for domestic orders to save you even more. Now all domestic orders are shipped for a fixed $8.50 regardless of order size. That is an additional $4 savings from our former prices. Our international customers will still pay actual shipping costs.
    We have also introduced some options for the Pitts, including wing tubes for only $54.50 for the full set, and 3/16 inch thick 6061 aluminum landing gear for only $31! Be sure to take advantage of these new lower prices and order your short kit and accessories today! Simply go to the Pitts product page at www.gundersonaerodesign.com/products/pitts.htm to place your order or use our new offline order form at www.gundersonaerodesign.com/orderform.pdf . For our international customers, please visit www.gundersonaerodesign.com/orderform.pdf to order."

    Thanks.

    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    rgunder,

    There are some problems with the 'Products' page. If I select any of the items under 'Short Kits', I get a 'Mal formed URL' error from my browser. It looks like you use '\' in the URL path instead of the non-evil '/'. Also, there is additional '\' on the end of the URL.

    Alright, it is time to share some pictures of my build progress. Ignore the tape that is holding the control surfaces in place; I think I'll actually use hinges in the end

    Enjoy.

    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    Got the plans; printed 'em out - then I looked at the 3-views for the Raptor A.S. ... So, I'm seriously thinking about getting the fuselage short kit from Rich and doing a "plans bash" to build the monoplane "Model 12"!

    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    I was wondering how the people in the state that bought the short kit are handling the differences in the thickness of fractional verses metric size wood in the building the the Pitts?
    I am waiting for the full kit but if the wood size differences isn't that much to over come I might just tackle the short kit.
    Thank you in advance for your time.

Please see the updated product page for full details and prices:www.gundersonaerodesign.com/products/pitts.htm. Thanks for all your patience while we worked to bring the Spirit of Pitts accessories to you.

    What is the construction of the cowling and wheelpants... are they fiberglass or something else?

    Dear Pitts lovers,I have a question about converting an S-1-11 "Super Stinker" to the M12 version.I haven't read all the posts yet,so please excuse me if it's already been brought up.I have a set of plans for a 45% S-1-11 and was wondering if the only difference was the cowl.I also have a very powerfull engine for such a bird:"Power Bee",135 cc,13# complete and 13.5-25 HP! depending upon wow many carbs and gas or alcohol.
