Well it's been a while since starting the Pitts. Everything is coming along well. There was many changes along the way, paint scheme, position's and the type's of details, but it's all good in the end. One of the best thing's that have remained the same is my opinion of the Andy Sheber plans, a work of art in themselves.

Just to get a mental start on this project I decided to list what I have. And what I plan to do.
The plans are an Andy Sheber Pitts s1s.
The motor is a CRRC 55cc twin. I know most of you won't like that choice. But thats what it is.
Radio gear is Futaba, T8FG tx upgraded to the 12, R6106rx which might be upgraded if an opening canopy is done-haven't decided, S3010 servo's, Life 6.6 3200mah battery, Tech-Aero ultra IBEC, Miracle double switch, Fiberglass Specialties cowl, canopy, and pant's-the cowl need's to be modified, Cirrus Venture's tailwheel (very scale), and one big box of wood from BUSA. All the wiring I will make myself for a better fit.
The photo is what I'm shooting for. I got a few days this week finishing up a Citabria build for a club member then I will get started. I still have to order the covering which I had not decided for sure what I was going to use untill today. Which will be Aircraft spruce poly-lite. I will wait on ordering the paint so as to get fresh stuff, no point in sitting on a shelf here for several month's. I think that's about it for now.
