Funny story.
I build for people and I am now on a retainer for a friend for about a 40 hr work week.

good luck with it i hope that this plane turns out to be a winner. since the dyanm one is beautiful made (as far as the foam and paint , flies great but need alot of reinforcements or upgrades. i dont think the starmax one is doing so well either .
i cant commet on FMS since ive never owned any of ther products. so im hoping for the best in your model and everyone elses.

Well I own the FMS FW-190 and have built several FMS planes. One thing for sure is the past year or two has yielded a lot better product. If this plane is anything like the FW-190, I may need a couple clicks of trim and be on my way to having fun.

So I came home for lunch today and to my surprise, I have a couple of huge boxes in my living room. One is an FMS Zero for a buddy of mine and the other is the Pitts. The Pitts box is quite large and put a smile on my face. I have to build the Zero first so I can move that out and have room to build the Pitts. I will do an unboxing of the Pitts probably tomorrow if I get the Zero done tonight.

Well I did lift open the lid on the box and while I didn't pull anything out, it is big and looks really nice.

LOL! I actually shot the unboxing video last night. While doing the unboxing, I got the urge to just start building. I didn't video the build but I got most of it together last night. The instructions are the best set yet leaving very little to guess and and they have you build in an order that makes handling a plane of this size easier as you go through the build. When I get home this evening I will upload the raw video. The only thing I have left to do to the plane is run the last few stringers and mount the prop. It took about 2 hours to build. Maiden will be Saturday.

Wow, looks beautiful! What do you think about the quality, especially the foam? Is it dense like E-Flite foam or soft and mushy like Parkzone?

Could you perhaps let us see the compartment for battery and electronics?

Hope to see the video soon
