Thanks mate, Extra is in build. Not much more done to it, though got the servos now minus motor/esc.

Agree with the other guys, real nice video man. If I had that kind of background I'd probably do more flying than working.

Lol guys. Thanks for the words. I would swop our wind, rain and clouds for your sun, blue skys and 90 c any day!
Gotta say thinking about it after the fact, the Pitts really was awesome. I think I prefer it over the crack yak after one flight, it just did everything the CY can do, but better!

Out of the planes I have the Pitts is the first in the air. Then the yak and slick for those days I just want to kick some foam around. I'm able to do more with the Pitts that I can't with the others. Give me a micro Pitts and all would be good in the world.

Oh man a micro Pitts. That would be insane. A Pitts lite I would buy in a second as well.

Right rudder

Just finishing up the build and had a question. When you give right rudder does your CF rod for the rudder flex out?

Okay...cool. It looks like I get equal amount of travel left & right. Another setup question: When installing the ESC, is everyone mounting it on the left underside of the main horizontal section and using velcro to mount the ESC? Just wanted to check. The only thing I have left is to mount the ESC, motor and clean-up the servo wires. Trying to decide if I want to mount the landing gear or not. Tomorrow will be maiden. Can't wait! Thanks again!

It's a matter of preference of where the electronics are mounted. I have mine mounted on the vertical just above the landing gear on one Pitts. The other has it mounted on the horizontal near the nose. On all my planes I'm trying to get it as close to the nose though. To get cg figured out. Also use velcro to mount them so it's easier to take off if needed. Enjoy the Pitts!

Thanks for the feedback. I'll get it all sorted out tonight.

I mounted my rx on one side and the esc on the other, that was what I gathered was the recommended way to do it. And I used hot glue

Check to make sure you didn't melt through the heat shrink on the esc with the hotglue stu. I lost an esc landing in a grassy area with morning dew. Fried the esc when it got wet. Good thing it was a cheap hk esc.
I've kept electronics on one side to compensate having the battery on the other and got in the habit of doing it that way. Keeps the lateral balance up to snuff as well.
