I've got about 25 flights under my belt on the Pitts now and i'm really starting to get the feel for the model. It goes best when flown aggressivly, it will slow down and cruise around like a trainer but it just doesnt feel right flown that way, the handling gets a bit vague at slow speed although never dangerous and the stall when it comes is a non-event.
Only problem i've discovered is the landing gear fixing. It's very weak and if you fly from a rough field it will almost certainly fail. The left hand undercarrage leg ripped right of the fuselage on mine doing a fair bit of damage in the process. The ply mounting plate that the legs bolt to is not well designed and the glue joints were part dry, an accident waiting to happen!
I've beefed mine up and repaired all the damage, it's better than new and should stand up to a few bouncy landings now.
One thing i found with this model is with CG 95mm from the LE of the top wing it flies inverted without any down elevator at all, which is very nice. First model I've owned that did this.
This is the first larger size electric model I've owned (previous have all been micro) and I'm bowled over by just how much power this thing has, vertical performance is only limited by my eyesight and acceleration is startling. I've used both 3000mAh and 2200mAh (3 cell) batteries and get 8 minutes on the big ones and 6 on the smaller with a safe margin left at the end.
all in all i'm having a lot of fun with this model
