I have built several but this is the oldest kit and one of my favorite planes. My uncle built this kit back in the 70 but I didn't get a chance to see any of that build. I just don't want to screw up the wing.

Follow the instructions,, as the wing tapers and airfoil shrinks, the distance between the table and the rib trailing edge is also going to be reduced, Making sure each rib is on the same level plane like the instructions call out will create a straight wing,,, that's why newer kit designs have alignment tabs on ribs

good luck

Default Royal Pitts questions

Well, while continue working on my Skymaster I find myself the new owner of a fully ready to fly but unflown Royal Pitts.
Any tips on a docile CG? Any first flight warnings to be aware of? Im a veteran flyer but know certain planes can be a handfull.

Here are the pitts s1 plans with balance info.
balance is at leading edge of lower wing.
I'd love to see a picture of your model. I have a built and un flown s2.
if you need s2 go here https://outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=9319
