GW Pitts Python 50cc V2

Have been looking at 50cc sized Pitts Pythons and narrowed it to 2 choices, Aeroworks and Goldwing.The Aeroworks looks great and looks to be better built with great hardware.The GW specs were a little lighter and offered a gold & black color which IMO looks best

So I called Jody at Milehigh RC and he hasnt built the Pitts but has seen it fly and all was good.

I ordered and received the Pitts in good order and ready to start the build.

Here is the specs;







Details

Pitts Python 50CC V2 (Gold-Black)
WING SPAN:71"(1800mm)
LENGTH:80"(2030mm)
WING AREA:1735sq in(112sq dm)
FLYING WEIGHT:16-17.4lbs(7200-7900g)
ENGINE:50-60cc gas

1- Latest structure design
2- Top quality
3- Easy assembly
4- Complete with accessories
5- Low wing loading makes it easy to fly
6- Light weight construction while keeping high structural strength
7- Excellent aerobatics and 3D performance
8- High performance hardware includes:
a) Heavy duty anodized aluminum horns
b) Adjustable pushrods for easy fine tuning
c) One piece 6061 T-6 anodized aluminum landing gear
d) Advanced rubber wheels
9- Two pieces removable wings and stabs (ELEVATOR NOT REMOVABLE)
10- Carbon fiber wing tube
11- Carbon fiber tail wheel assembly
12- Anodized long aluminum servo arms included
13- Servo extension safety connector clips also included
14- Carbon fiber rods, making the wings strong and light weight
15- Scale canopy
16- Fixed ring inside cowling for easy assembly
17- Pre-hinged control surfaces
18- Pre-mounted and plumbed gasoline tank
19- Pre-installed servo wire tube
20- Genuine Oracover film


Some of this hardware looks new to me,so I may need some help.

I will keep you posted on the build

So far so good on the build,everything goes together well,only issue so far is the tail wheel ,I dont think its for this model, the tiller sets back to far and could cause some binding,will see.

I will be using Hitec 7955 with SWB 1.5" on elevator and 3" on pull pull rudder.On the ailerons Hitec 5685 with with stock double arms cut down.I will use 2s lipo for power.

Any questions or comments please jump in

Ron

That's the worst video. I can't believe they put that on their website. What a joke.

update: got 3 flights on the Python last weekend at the Newark Throwdown.
The plane presents itself well in the air .As for flight ,it will need some work ,needed like 7 clicks of right rudder to get to fly straight and on up line it falls to the left,so Ill get some right thrust in and see how that goes,Still need to move a battery back for cg as it is a little nose heavy ,no big deal there.As for KE it will need some mixing as most bipes do.

Overall ,Im happy with it so far.Iam going to order graphics as the supplied ones are crap.here some photos for anyone how doesnt follow the 3DHS addicts thread and again thank you Don,you take great photos,you should be selling these
