enjoy and thanks again. bird.
bigbird3 I hope you see this 🙂. What modification did you have to make, if any to get the Pegasus 320 to work? Also do you think a 240 would work? Thanks

Hey, I am finally getting my GP Pitts out and putting together. I feel that I have two left Cabane fuselage wing struts. Has any else ran into this issue? Also would any happen to have a right one?

Almost done….

- Enhance firewall
- Install tanks(smoke and gas)
- Install canopy
- Install RX
- Set controls
- Route exhaust
- Balance
- Run engine
- sure I am missing something….

Man this Gemini looks great on the plane and fits so nice with no modification to the cowl!

Rowdog, have you finished your Pitts and flown it yet? I just got a new GP Pitts that I am debating on which engine to install...

Hey, I have not finished. Need to balance, install smoke tank and add a little more support to the firewall. The engine I have feels like it will pull it just fine.
