Default Kyosho Pitts 50 rebirth

After a couple years of collecting dust I have decided to take on the pitts project. I bought this plane a while back on here. At the time it was all setup to fly but of course I had to strip it of its dignity and tear it apart. It has been sitting in a cabinet in pieces until now.

Now for the build part. It had a 46 in it but that just isn't enough for me. Considering I hate nitro and I wanted to go bigger on the motor size I went to an Evolution 15gx2 with the pumper carb. That motor runs great and it has its first break in tank completed. I put all new s3004 futaba servos in it(the old ones were shot). Currently have a 10oz tank in there but might drop to an 8. My goal is to run a light smoke system down the road but need to figure out a pump first. I think this will be a pretty quick and snappy bird which is what I'm after. Landing with that 15cc might be somewhat of a challenge but only time will tell.

Got a little more done tonight. Tied the ailerons together, marked holes for motor, cut cowling to fit the 15gx, cut and fit smoke tank in place, made up a throttle linkage, and added some stickers.

My apologies for all the sideways pictures. I'm on my phone and can't figure out how to use photobucket. Got the motor mounted solid, added the throttle linkage, routed the fuel and smoke lines through the firewall, and routed the ignition wire as well.

Apparently this sub forum is kinda dead...I'll continue to post anyways. Getting close to a maiden just trying to figure out cg. If anybody would like to chime in on the location of that it would be much appreciated. The evo is significantly heavier than the recommended motor but has tons of power so the added cg weight shouldn't be an issue.
