Any chance of coming out with a blue (this color!) or green one? Time frame? If not, I'll pull the trigger TONIGHT!

I'm hooked!


Looks great! I've been wanting to get a smaller EPP plane to fly around the yard. I had a Crack Yak in the queue to order but the Crack Pitts just took it's place for now. Been wanting a biplane. This will be my first TH plane. Some many TH planes I would like to have...Extra Slick, Crack Yak, Edge 540. Can't wait...

You'll be even more hooked once you get one. I have the Crack Yak and all I can say is WOW! The build was super easy. The only difficult part was installing the elevator and rudder control rod supports. They took the time to add the little cuts for them on the Crack Pitts! Awesome!

I've owned a McFoamy and it was nice, just not as nice as the Crack Yak. What I like about the TH planes is they don't need intricate truss work to be rigid. I'll definitely be getting this bipe. Hopefully someone will come on here and tell me they plan on coming with a blue version!

I have a 42" EPP Edge 540 by Fancy Foam. This is the only EPP foam plane I've had. Good to fly at the field but a little big flying in the yard at home. I've had my eye on a TH EPP plane for awhile and the Crack Pitts fits the size I want. I would expect we'll see a different color Crack Pitts soon.

The guide cutouts are there on the Extra Slick, Crack Yak, and Crack Pitts 12...they are just kind of hard to find because they are so small.

If you can't find the cutouts, just stick the guides where you think they should go...make sure they are in a straight line and equally spaced and you'll be fine.

Really?! Dang. It would have made life WAY easier knowing that during the build. I got lucky with the elevator rod, but I got some Welders on the rudder's rod. I had to systematically remove the glue with an xacto knife! It turned out perfect. My CG was DEAD ON.

Anyone know which Beacon glue is best to use for EPP?

Beacon make several different types. I used Welder's glue on the 32" TH Edge and just want to try a different glue.

And where to get it....

I'm excited to start hearing some flight reports. People will probably start receiving their crack pitts tomorrow.
