    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    I dont see how you could do a conversion like that. The S-1-11 Super Stinker and the Model 12 are nothing alike. The fuselages are different, the wings are different, the front end and cowl are totally different, the gear is different... etc, etc., etc. The Model 12 was designed around a radial engine, that's the main reason it's so unique and different. The Super Stinker is just a hot rodded version of the regular Pitts S-1, with different wings and a few other changes. They are two totally different aircraft.

    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    Has anyone gotten the plans recently? I'm ready to buy the full kit but there hasn't been a post from Bernard since December and I haven't had any response from my request for plans.

    dubya_o,

    For time's sake, Bernard sends the plans generally once a week by email, after gathering the full week's requests. I am sure that your request will be filled within days, if not please send me a PM. Thanks for your patience.

    Thanks Richard. I got the plans from Bernard about the same time you replied! I'll look over the plans tonight and you should see my order Friday or Monday.

    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    highfly3D,

    The distribution should have contained 4 files; two for the wing plan and two for the fuse plan. One file is tiled to fit on a smaller printer, the other should be full size. Most document printing companies should be able to print the plan for you at full scale.

    Hope that helps.

    thesaent14,

    I may be misunderstanding your question, but it seems that you are asking if your machine is capable of cutting these parts. Although, I would guess that is not the intent of your question. Maybe you could clarify the question?

    Thanks.

    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    I know at one time Bernard distributed the CNC file with the PDF files. The file contained the laided out parts that were to be cut.
    But I don't believe I have the liberty to pass them on to you. You would have to get them from Bernard.

    The parts that the laser sheet have on it are the ribs, formers, fuse parts as well as other various parts. They are made out of various thicknesses of ply and balsa.

    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    I'm sorry, I kept using the term "laser sheet", I should have said CNC sheet. I'm assuming the Parts sheet could be used to cut the parts on a CNC machine. I'm not sure that the parts sheet in DXF format is available any more. You'd have to ask Bernard.

    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    I am interested in this plane. Can someone please post pictures of your construction progress with comments regarding the design. Are you running into any major snags? Does the structural strength seem appropriate to 3D loadings? Does anyone have a flight report? How is the weight and balance?

    Thanks,
    Scott

    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    Hello all,

    I thought I would post an updated photo of my personal build progress. Included in the photo are some of the accessories available, including the wing tubes (in the wing), the cabanes, and the wheel pants. The cowling pictured is made with the formers available in the short kit and the stringers and skins available in the full wood kit.

    I look forward to some other build photos.

    Richard,

    It's looking good so far. Do you have a fiberglass cowl and plastic canopy yet?

    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    Scott,

    The canopy and cowling are in work with a very capable manufacturer. We had initially developed tooling in-house to build the canopy and cowling; however, we found that the quality of the final product did not live up to the level of quality that we hope our customers come to expect from Gunderson AeroDesign LLC. As a result, the delivery date for the fiberglass cowling and the polycarbonate canopy have not been set, but should be soon.

    Richard,

    What size engine do you intend on putting in your Pitts? Would a DA 50 be appropriate for this airplane?

    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    I have been on the fence about engine selection. Right now, I am actually leaning toward going brushless rather than gas or glow. Bernard flew the prototype with a 35cc MVVS glow engine. The DA 50 is slightly lighter, with an additional 1 hp, so it would seem to be a good choice. In fact, here I go falling back onto the gas side of the fence! I can just picture the finished plane at the field with a nice 3-bladed prop and that great engine sound! Decisions, decisions...

    RE: Pitts M12 26% plans available soon

    I would be tempted to try the G62 lite from rcign. At 1800+ sq in, the plane should handle the power. However, there are many good choices of gas engines in the 50cc range.
