Hummmm you guys made me dust off the Pitts today. I've spent the last 2 or 3 months learning to fly Helicopters and had been ignoring my fixed wings.

Had to see if it still worked.
Taking the Pitts after 3 months on the shelf. (6 min 35 sec)

Those may be nice servos (the DS65HB), but they are way too wimpy for this plane in my opinion.

The super low torque (Torque @ 4.8V: 1.3kg/cm) and plastic gears would not be wise on this Peaks...

Yes.. NitroPlanes sells the kit for $99.00. It is the yellow one and it does come with decals but they are not applied. I ordered both the ARF and the Kit at the same time. The ARF I put the Peaks decals on, The Kit I had Callie Graphics make the Pitts Python decals for 28 bucks. The also offer an unpainted ARF but it is 169 bucks.

The metal gear ones from Hobby King that you say are HEAVY.... It makes no difference between 9 grams and 13 grams on this plane... your are only using 2 of them for the ailerons. They are strong and quick and I have never stripped a gear yet and for 5 bucks you can't beat them. They fit right in the servo cutouts perfectly because they are a 9 gram servo just changed out the gears to metal which is where the extra weight came from. There is no way you could tell a difference in the performance power of the plane using these metal gear servos verses smaller lighter,weaker, plastic gear servos. The difference in weight between the standard 9g servo and these metal gear servos, you are adding 0.01763698 ounces to the plane. I can't even tell the difference in how the plane performs during 3d using 1800mAh battery or using a 2200mAh battery and there is a huge difference in weight between these 2 batteries.

Did it come from NitroPlanes? The kit from them was yellow when I purchased it and it is yellow right now on their web site. The white unpainted one has always been an ARF on their site. I never could understand why the unpainted one cost more than the red or yellow one. You can use mineral spirits to remove the paint if you let it soak long enough. Someone else was using rubbing alcohol to remove the paint.

Liked your paint job on the Pitts. That lake you have, I would have to fly my Dynam PBY off of that. The 3 blade prop and hub, did that come off
of the 1450mm FMS T-28?

Nah, just goofing around. I normally fly 3d helis where a crash costs $200-$400, the peaks is no stress.

Yeah, it's from a little key fob cam velcro'd to the bill of my hat. It's the "808 #11 Cam".

..since that's what this hobby is all about. It's what we like to call (much needed) "Therapy"......

Hey Mike,
Kinda figured that as some of those "maneuvers" looked very heli-like... Fun to watch those last second reactions about 3 feet off the deck.... Didn't know the Peaks had it in her... Since you like the Peaks should give the Dynam Devil 3D a try when you have a chance. Some of the heli pilots I know can really wring the daylights out of this lil' Bipe as well......

Thanks for posting the cam info, too...
