Curious to know where the CG was set on your Pitts? The joke of a manual supplied with the kit doesn’t cover it and while I'm pretty happy that I've calculated the required position accurately (at or just slightly behind the lower wing LE) it's always good to hear what others are using. It will need a little noseweight to get the CG right, If I'd have known I'd have gone for a larger battery.. If all goes well with the maiden I might just invest in a bigger battery or two anyway.
Weather permitting it should fly this weekend. I got my new servos (Bluebird BM-380MAX) these appear to have adequate torque and with their metal gears are tough enough to move the horribly stiff ailerons but there is a lot of buzzing at full travel due to the resistance put up by the cheapo hinges.... Might get around to replacing the hinges eventually but it will have to do for now.
Most of my flying over recent years has been freeflight, micro RC, or gliders.. So slightly out of my comfort zone with this one....Wish me luck!
