I just saw the add in the new AMA magazine. I love the looks of the full size model 12 pitts and the model sure looks good.

Ad says 60" top wing 58" bottom. Flys with a 1.20 4 stroke. Probably better with a 1.50 or 1.80 though. Called my LHS today to try to get a price. There is absolutely no info out. He hasn't been told a price or availability yet. I hope its soon.

I don't have that issue yet either. Does it say what the wing area is? Also what is the color/ covering scheme?

I have been waiting for someone to come out with a 50cc gas version of the Pitts model 12. Bob at www.bigairplanes.com said we might see a 25% (DA50) and a 30% (100cc) this fall.

I just visited the Carl Goldberg site and did not find anything about this plane. I would like to have one too. I have asked my LHS to try to get more information. Anyone out there who knows more?

Just talked to the Carl Goldberg folks on the phone and here is what they said. The plane should be available mid to late November and will be sold through Tower Hobbies. Current cost to be around $429.00.... Get your orders in early!!!!!! They also indiated that their own website should be updated soon with the information.

I emailed them. Here is their response.

The new Pitts is an Arf. Top wing
60", bottom wing 58" total wing area top 555" - bottom 534",
length 56",
weight 11 1/4 to 12 1/4 lbs, power is .90 - 1.08 2 stroke, 120 4 stroke,
radio - 4 channel 7 servo.
You can probably expect to see them in hobby shops in the beginning of
December. Cost is about $430.
Any other info, you can call us at 678-450-0085

I wanted one of these, but that is just way too much for a 120 size plane. I was expecting about $325 or so for the price...

I called the Goldberg folks and got the same info on availability time frame and price. My guess is that they'll probably sell it for $50 less about six months after it's introduction. If you look closely at the ad you can see that the hardware is REALLY first-rate. They describe the tail wheel assembly as being pretty high-tech as well, hence some of the higher cost for the ARF. Having just bought and assembled the CG Decathlon, I can attest to the quality of covering, hardware and construction. I have an OS 1.08 that would work well in the Pitts, I think. Any opinion? I'm kinda thinking that I need to just splurge and get this thing for my Xmas present!!

Looks like a good candidate for an O.S. 1.60 !!! I think the price sounds real good . You could not build it yourself for that kind of money.

I bet it must be a little over built to weigh 11.5 to 12.5 It takes alot of motor to hover that much weight with grace and still feel light in your hands . I wonder if you can lighten it a bit...... (lighten the bulk heads and remove pilot area, etc.) seen a friend do this with a patrick ultimate and saito 180 on a shaker pump....WOW! weighs 10.5

Just found it on both the Carl Goldberg site and the Tower Hobbies site. Not much more information that was in the ad in the AMA magazine. However, the price is as indicated $429.00 and on the Tower site, the availability indicates: "order pending"
