Just be sure you don't buy the battery from BH. They are trying to charge $90 for the lipo! You can get it for about $45 from Hobbyking.

He is probably talking about those ones: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...5FPack%5F.html

I'd go for higher c rating though

Yeah, I knew he wasn't going to offer one up that would work for this plane at no $45. I would go for closer to 4000mAh with a 65+ C rating. Of course at that size you are looking at a $90 lipo anyway anywhere.

Looks cool but if you look at those pictures closely, the wing struts seem bent under stress.

Which photo are you referring to? To me they all look straight and strong.

wow this has got to be the best looking foam pitts ive seen. i love the pitts biplanes. i have the Dynam pitts(peaks ) which was a nightmare. it flys great when it flys but i had to do aot of mods to get it to fly and in between the mods there where alot of crashing , since i like pitts so much the othere day. i purchased another one .they had a free shipping promo ,since the first one looked beat up i took advantage of the deal . NOW! This one pops up "out of no where" if i would had known about this prior . i would have gotten this one instead ,i definetly got to get this one .
i wonder if the stickers are pre applied .

I'm not too sure either, but if you'd number those big pictures, it'd be the 22nd, 23rd and 38th. Compare those left and right struts that connect the top and bottom wings, though it could be my eyes playing trick on me
