Has anybody built one of these? (Hobbyko Pitts for AR6400 & 1S)

It looks perfect to put my T28 guts into. My T28 is still flyable but not that much fun. I was wondering what this Pitts flies like. I have tried searching but have found very little about it.

It's a little bit more pricey, but I think you would get more enjoyment out of this: http://www.profileplanes.com/index.p...&product_id=50

It looks very good but costs more and I would have to import it. The Pitts has the advantage of being dirt cheap, available in the UK and needing the same number of aileron servos that I have ... one. Thanks for the suggestion, though, I have had difficulty finding much in the way of aerobatic models needing a Parkzone UM donor.

Yes Hobby King has an in-line plug that fits their small ESCs. Big advantage with an in-line plug it it is easy to reverse the motor.
Here is the 3A ESX:

Another thing you could do is to get an Integrated Circuit socket DIP (Dual Inline Package) and saw out a section with three contacts on it. Most DIP sockets will have solder pins that go through the board, of the same size as the IC it accepts, so they can be used to plug into them selves in a "stacked" manner.

Deans makes a 3 pin mini connector with equal pin spacing for easy reversal. I am sure you can find it elsewhere but Astro Flight sold them under part #520. They also make a similar connector with one offset pin that cannot be reversed. Be sure you are ordering the proper style.

JST-PH 3 pin, also used for UMX 2s battery connectors, very handy items especially if you build your own batteries

I Just cut them out of the wing. The styrofoam was strong enough that I didn't need a spar.

That is exciting! Looks so simple to build, I sure hope you publish details. I will make nice drawings out of your sketches if you like...

lovely flier... looks like a yak54... and a nice find on that motor...

re.... 3pin connectors... Ive been using these pic1 but they are not a good fit...
the micro deans look good but so far they are expensive over here... 2.45 for one pair
In the end I am going with standard servo connections.. they are a bit over weight at 1.5gms with about 30mm wire at each end, but at least they are reversible so its easy to change the motor direction and they are a tight fit..best of all I can get 50 pairs made as extension leads for 6.20
note the deans weigh 1gm with no wire...
