    Item Description:

    I'm selling what was a practically brand new Great Planes Pitts. It is equipped with a DLE-60 twin, Tactic TSX-55's on the control surfaces, and a TSX-35 on the throttle. It also has a Fortitude tank, twin aluminum switch/fuel dot, Mejzlik 22x12 three blade prop, and a Top Flite Focke-Wulf spinner that I sprayed gloss black. I also have have two spare canopies in the original white. The motor only has about 20 minutes of run time, and the plane has been in the air once, unfortunately, with a slight mishap on landing where it caught tall grass and nosed over in the tall grass. It broke one glue joint loose in the top of the rudder, and busted the Monokote, but no wood damage at all. I re-glued the joint, added extra bracing, and ironed some Monokote back over it. I also installed NGK plugs after that, and just have not had time to assemble and run it, so it has not been sitting ever since. Everything was brand new for this plane. Unfortunately, since then, I found that my kids cats (I don't claim them as mine), had used the upper wing for a resting place, and busted the Monokote. It had not been fixed, but I have a whole roll of Missle Red that will go with it. They also knocked the cowl down and put a slight chip in it. Mad does not begin to cover how I felt towards those animals. Anyway, my loss is your gain. Repair the covering, add your receiver and batteries, and go fly. $600 FIRM, and no shipping. Please ask if you have any questions. Thanks.
