Looks nice....I think the CG pitts is a bit better "more traditional" color scheme but the e-flite plane looks better layed out.

I like the size and the looks of this one!

What's with companies always coming out with the same planes though? Two years ago you couldn't find an electric Yak, ARF or kit. All you could find were Edge's and Extra's. The market is flooded with Yak's now. The Pitts Monster seems to be the model of choice now and they're all coming out at once. Do the companies have spies?

Demand drives the production.

I agree with your observation GP...plenty of scale monoplanes to choose from now (though I am never hurt by their being more choices), and it seems biplanes may be the rage this year with the python, CG pitts, ultimate, and e-flite pitts. I would like to see e-flite come out with an ultimate for the power 25 or 32 size motors that is bigger than the great planes version and a more old school pitts S1 or S2 would be nice as well....no one has done a built up christen eagle either.

Those are the ones that I've been waiting for I would love a Christen Eagle of this size but I doubt that it will happen. I may be wrong, but I think it would be hard to design one that is close to scale and coupling free. Since 3D is all the rage the demand for some of the more tradition bipes probably wouldn't be the greatest.

True, but how do they all come out with the same planes within months or even weeks of each other? From the marketing /planing stage, to the design stage, and finally the production stage must take quite a few months.

Im love the scheme although it seems that 50 oz is a tad heavy and e flite planes ar eusually just a bit heavier than advertised although they are flying better than before.

Quique is on a manufacturing spree! The divo and now this in just 2 weeks??

I think the size is just about perfect for me. I wounder if it is based on his larger pitts because that thing flys amazing.

I would say that if it is designed by quique it is bound to fly great.

All regards,

It might be based on his big Pitts, but his big Pitts is a Pitts Python, not a Pitts 12.

Well actually a Pitts M12 and a Pitts Python are basically the same except for the Python having lighter equipment and 1-2 foot shorter wingspan, google and look at the specs.
