Hey Flyer's, I just pushed the buy button and mine should be here in a while? I love the Pitt's and double that in this white along with the fact that all my bird's fly on 4200-5000mah 6S/40C lipo's. Like seeing the grass field takeoffs and landing's as that is what I have. It's about all I mow around here 1500' of it, nice and tight. Thank's Orion for all the great and detailed info. Dave/ZeeZee ...PM!! I just got a UPS tracking # from BH stating my delivery date is Oct.5th... 3 day ground is actually true...

Gotta prioritize man. If a week is all the difference is then be patient.

Didn't see the Carbon Cub but did see a nifty ultralite. Bet that one is fun.

Orion, it was your review and build that gave me the courage to buy this especially from BH...thank you sir! It was packed perfectly with NO damage at all and built like a "tank" with the quality and fit and smoothness I would expect of a Ferrari. The best landing gear setup I have seen yet, better than my Hanger9 Piper Pawnee which I love. I'm gonna cut the bottom of the canopy out and go to the pet store and buy me a toy dog so he can enjoy the thrill of flying. The inside of this plane is that roomy! Hell, why not 12S!!!!! After my open heart sugery I don't drink often at all anymore, but now that she is all unpacked and everything neat and in it's place, I am walking out the door and get in my JD gator and ride up to the village five and dime and buy me 3 ice cold BUD LIGHTS. ....This one/3 or for you, ...superdave the amazing handyman

The carbon cub is on order but still 6 month away as they are selling lots of them. The fly nano is not actually an ultralight but an LSA.

Are you installing a mrrcsound system in your Pitts ?

Will be one to watch but I think Andrew really needs to get ALOT more smoke flow happening first. I have done this in the past with good results using smoke flairs that are used for air conditioning companies. Basically, after the install them in a building they light these non toxic flairs in bright orange and then view any areas that could possible leak... if they cant see any orange smoke... no leak ! We used these on our 20% yaks and they looked great !! Just did not last long enough * 3 minutes max

FMS Pitts

Hey Orion, great posts! I have my Pitts all ready to go, but i am having trouble with the ESC. The only time i get beeps out of the motor is when i plug battery in while having throttle at full throttle, i would think entering program mode. Now i don't have extensive knowledge of ESC programming and the instructions that come with the Pitts don't go into detail about that. If you could help out that would be great! This thing needs to get in the air!

LB,

Most esc have different programming mode, almost all have a throttle set point /end points that can be set and sometimes need to be set in order for the esc to engage.

Here what u need to do:
