Depron Pitts s2

I have been fooling with Depron 3-D electrics for a little while now and reading up on every thread I can find on them in this and other forums.

After reading about the good flying little 22" Ultimate and the setups those builders are using, I decided to use it as a basis to do a Pitts. (yes the two planes are different, but any similarities are purely intentional... )

Anyway here it is.

3mm depron throughout. Fuse has a 1/8" carbon tube down the middle with 2mm depron doublers on the nose.

Wings and tail are 3mm depron with a 1/4" x .007 carbon strip on the top and bottom wing (top of top, bottom of bottom).

Used Uhu creative and a little epoxy for construction.

Power comes from an IPSD swinging a 10x4.7 prop. Juice comes from a 700 2cell etec. It also uses a gws esc, rcvr and 3 pico servos.

All up weight is 5.75 ozs

The little plane easily hovers all the way through the pack, and torque rolls very easily. Harriers and knife edge are good, and it actually glides pretty nicely (when the voltage limiter kicks in

)
