At least he sold the Tx to you. One of the shops in my area has guys that don't even want to be bothered. Needless to say I don't go there anymore.

Curious if an eflite park 300 on 3s with 8x4.3 would be enough umph for the pitts. The recommended combo is out of stock and I have one laying around.

If the specs for that motor are accurate then it should work fine. Go for it!

My hovercraft is full of eels.
I've flown foamies much heavier than the Crack Pitts with a Park 300 on 3S. It will be more than enough power. If its the 1380 KV version, you could prop up to a 9x4.7 or even a 10" prop and fly it on 2S.

I am not sure what kv I have. I get home tomorrow from being out of town. I will probably pull the trigger on one this afternoon. Thanks for all the responses!

I really don't have any real 3D skill right now, looking to learn. Would this plane being durable enough for me to learn on? I can hover for a bit and can do snap rolls but that is about it.

Anything made of EPP is grea for learning 3D because of durability. You will have ground encounters and these planes just bounce.

This, or any of the 32" TH/RCF models is great to learn 3D with.

I've ripped and torn mine quite a few times and it's still flying as good as day one... with a minor twist or two. Just have some Welders in the car and keep patching it up and you will have a ball and learn very fast!

I had no 3d skills when I bought mine and it's now my favorite airplane. Anything i can smack on the ground bounce off of light poles cartwheel across the parking lot and get stuck in trees and keep on flying it like it didn't happen is the way to go. Few minor tears in the foam but nothing that has kept me from flying it some more. Bit o glue later and it's fine. Actually ordered an extra slick to go with my Pitts the other day since the TH planes are so great.

These last few posts make me feel better -- I am probably an 'low to average' sport pilot whose experience is pretty much limited to some EDFs and parkflyer warbirds, so I was wondering if I bit off more than I could chew when I ordered this as my first 3D ship. Glad to hear someone with no prior 3D experience can hopefully get this guy airborne and have some fun while 'learning by doing'.

I am starting to put it together tonight, so far I have the spars in and the electronics sorted. Looks like it is well done kit and all the pieces are there. Nice to have both the pdf manual and the video on the Twisted site to go by!

I may have to take a break and finish it tomorrow though, since my build table is in the den, and ventilation is not too great, so don't want to get all headachey from the Welder's for tomorrow!

My father was a 3d rookie as well. I got him one for fathers day and he loves it. You really can't go wrong with it at all. And on low rates it'll make a great pattern sport flyer till you are ready to crank it up to the high and go crazy. I've only been flying mine for about 2 months and been flying it on high rates for most of it since its such a joy to fly.

All the TH planes are great. Before the planes I have now, I was flying micros and a few leadfeather yak55s. It wasn't until I got the Crack Yak that I started trying the 3d stuff. Still playing around and praticing, it's most fun I've had since I got back into flying.
Aaeolien congrats on getting the extra slick. You'll like it...though you might need more batts.

Lol yeah probably going to order a few more batteries. I have a dozen here that I can charge at 5c but being able to fly into the night I may run short even charging them back to back to back. Hahha.
