Did the same today too. Didn't think it was that cool till the breeze made my fingers numb. It came to a screeching halt when a good gust caught the Pitts and planted it up top of the building at work. Note to self stop flying when that happens. Got the plane down and called it a day.

Finally got my plane, electronics etc ready to build and started looking at the manual, build info here and the video on TH site.. The video splits the horizontal fuselage and the manual splits the vertical. Not sure which is better/easier any opinions???

I seen that on the videos, though I wonder how straight it would be. I did both my Pitts like the manual and it worked better to me. Think it comes down to preference some build one way while others build another. Big thing is to build it true and straight. Happy flying.

Never thought of the Pitts as a high wind foamie. I took this this weekend when the rain fianlly stopped, but it was 10mph. So it was fly or no fly so i flew. I was surprised at the pitts, the crack yak would of been a real handful in that amount of wind.

On 2s.

3s makes it come alive jimbo.

Had some good flying weather this morning, which made me happy been a month since I got any stick time. Both the Piits and Yak got airtime, Slick needed some repairs to the wing. The Pitts is still going strong even with all I've put it through. The time to replace her is coming though.

Nice flying and vid jimbo.

One thing about that kind of wind you get some interesting flying. At least that's how it's been here. Seems the wind hate me as much as I hate the wind.
