It looks great!

Did you build it stock?
Did you do anything to lighten it?
What's the AUW?

BTW, I noticed that the top wing is sans rubber bands. Did you modify the way it mounts?

Thanks I wish I could take the credit , but the Pitts was found hanging in a local hobby shop. The quality of the construction was absolutely top-notch. I will get some weights up soon. Still haven't maidened her because I was out of stock on courage..
The photo was taken without the rubber bands on top, just so that the wing would look clean for the picture. The former owner told me that " she flies great"..but you've got to keep her close, because it is hard to keep orientation.
As soon as my order of courage comes in I will take her Up..

good luck with the maiden , and perhaps you should re-cover/detail the underside of the wings and stab to help out with
orientation. what's the full spec of the plane? looking at the pic it looks around 34-38"span, but photos can be misleading
sometimes, and do you have a link to the manufacturers website?

Sweet Pitts, this is a Jitterbug bipe that I just completed. Look forward to a flight report and specs on yours.
