The latest from the basement on a cold March 1st. I've followed the R&D on the model for over a year. Designed in Israel, manufactured in China (like most everything these days). After months and months of scrutiny, I can say without reservation that this is one of the nicest, most well-designed ARF models available.
ZG did a superb job keeping the weight very low. The majority of buyers will look to this as a 3D model and that's certain the category it was designed to fulfill. However, I plan to fly it pattern like the original Pitts.
To say the plane "fell together" would not be an understatement. Exceptional throughout. I took extra time to paint-out screw heads and the like. Finishing touches consisted of a "virtual cockpit" using the good old color printer, a vacuum-formed radial engine painted somewhat close to accurate, and a coat of aluminum paint on the APC e-prop to dress it up a bit. Here are the specs on the equipment installed:
Scorpion 70A esc
Thunder Power eXtreme V2 25c 3S 3850 Mah
APC 13x6.5 (silver finish)
Goldberg 2" spinner
All of the hardware painted out black or lemon yellow to match
