LOL!

The owner of Pilgrims Pride Turkey would start his lear jet @ 7am and be @ work by 9am with the warm up time and flight clearance and all. It was a 10 min drive from his door step to the office. Now that is nuts.

Somebody using "our" pitts in the red and white version as an FPV-platform - it seems super-stable in the air, even flys well without throttle hehe....

what do you guys think of either starting a new thread or nominating "iron city" chief editor of this thread (if he accepts) and run it from the start much like "the ultimate hobbyzone supercub" threads.

a quick look at page 1 and you can see all the mods and good info has been bookmarked for easy viewing and so no good info is lost in the thread over time.

i think it would be a fantastic time to start it up, if ya'll are keen?

I wonder how you can say that's not the same plane, from what I can see it is identical in all details in body and wing - there might be a difference in wheels, and engine/electronics, but basicly it should be the same plane.

Hehe, because I know it isnt. What it is, is this one from Sapac :
http://www.sapac.com.cn/prodshowe.as...77045&action=2

And no the details arent the same. The Art Tech is a tandem cockpit, with a tinted canopy, the one in the video is a single cockpit and clear canopy.
Thet Art Tech has a two blade prop, the sapac has a three blade prop. The sapac Pitts has a different inter aileron connector type also using standard horns, where the Art Tech uses a very differrent kind of horn thats flat with the aileron putting the connection right at the trailing edge of the aileron.
And then if you could look more closely one will find that the Sapac's wings are flat bottom, and the Art Tech's are symetrical.
