Well, it should be BlitzRcWorks, but I don't want rude under Pete by giving the name of the manufacturer. But you can be sure that it is a well-known manufacturer, and very good quality.

Thanks HLC for keeping this under wraps for now. When we have a full launch, I will give more details as well. Although there is a main manufacturer, I am still the one person that is doing the exact testing for 3D. When I have a model that I am happy with, I will give the go for production. I am hoping to have this Pitts available here in the US by Christmas. Thanks for the interest everyone. Let me know if there are any other questions.

Regards,

Pete

I've personally seen Pete flying it at the field and it's amazing, acutally not only me but everyone at the field has shown interested, keep up the good work Pete!

Let me know if you want me to test how crash resistance it is. You know I am pretty good at it, LOL.

Someone needs to dress up a Ken doll like Pete and put it on the wing for the full video review.

63" Pitts with Limited Edition Pete Wing Walker.

Oh, don't forget the onboard sound module of Pete screaming. lol

That will depend greatly on the quality of the motor. I have a Chipmunk 70e I fly on a 600kv motor on 6s. I have been flying it for 3 years now and the motor is still fine. Lets hope I just didn't jinx myself.

As specified by the model weighs 3.8 kilos and measured 63 inches of wing.
if it has a 11-inch Shord, the total area of 1386 square inches will be,.
Stall sped around 18mph. very nice.
considering that the overall model weighs 4 kilos and that spectacular 3D fly requires a thrust of 7.2 kilos.

then with a propeller APC e18x8, 6s lipo, 7000rpm, 80A. for 1760 watts.
need an engine from 419 to 529 grams of weight with a Kv of 408.

With a propeller APC e17x8, 6s lipo, 8000rpm, 88A. for 1936 watts.
need an engine from 461 to 583 grams of weight with a Kv of 466.

With a propeller APC e16x8, 6s lipo, 8080rpm, 78A for 1705 watts.
need an engine from 400 to 512 grams of weight with a Kv of 471.

With a propeller APC e15x8, 6s lipo, 9300rpm, 90A for 1996 watts.
need an engine from 479 to 600 grams of weight with a Kv of 542.

With a propeller Metts 15x7, 6s lipo, 10,300rpm, 87A for 1914 watts.
need an engine from 466 to 600 grams of weight with a Kv of 600.

Hi,
it will comes PNP (ESC 125A, motor and servos) or in KIT.

Maybe ARF (with li-po) and RTF (2.4Ghz 6ch).

$300 for a foamie? I might have to wait and see some flight reports first on this one. I still like the look of it but you could get a decent balsa plane for that.

Not that size, and not PnP. No way.

Show me a 63" balsa Pitts. The Sebart is the best one out there and it's only 53"...and you're looking at about $600 to get it in the air. (if you use cheap components)
