Description

We are proud to announce our new line of super scale balsa aircraft for even the most discerning modeler. The Pitts Specials is the first in the line-up of kingcraft models that you'll hear more about in coming months.   


Designed by the legendary Curtis Pitts, the Pitts Special has a proud history in aviation circles and is a favorite at an airshow. The prototype first flew in 1944 and although the aircraft has received refinements over time the current examples are still quite close to the original design. Pilots and aviation enthusiasts the world over have a soft spot for the Pitts Special, winning many aerobatic prizes and championships for its astonishing maneuverability and routines.

 

Kingcraft's almost ready to fly version of the Pitts Special is the S-2B, a later and more powerful twin-seater variant and a very recognizable airplane. Kingcraft have captured the true spirit of the Pitts with super scale detail coupled with a straightforward build. .

 

All the hard work has been done for you, the airframe is a combination of balsa and light plywood construction with a painted fiberglass cowl, wheel pants and spats. It also has plywood inter-plane struts, aluminum landing gear and fairings with scale like working suspension. To bring this traditionally built ARF to the next level we have also included a set of rigging wires for the wings and empennage, a life-like pilot and ultra-scale dual cockpit with instrument panels which fully resemble that of the full-scale Pitts S-2B.

The manufacturing quality of the timber components is completed by hand with a high attention to detail, Design and flight testing is completed in house at Kingcraft to make sure the RC pilot has the best flying experience with their aerobatic powerhouse.

Embrace the performance and pull all the G's you desire with the Pitts Special S-2B from Kingcraft.

The plane arrived quickly and was well packed. I downloaded the instruction manual which is where the problems started. The parts were not numbered and cross referenced in the instructions. The clarity of the pictures and the descriptions left a lot to be desired and I was often confused as to what went where. The position of the cut-outs for the control horns were not at all clear and I ended up fitting them in the wrong place. Two of the metal clevises supplied split in half when I tried to fit them so I had to buy more. I had ordered a lovely 70mm alum spinner as recommended but its adapter was too big for the motor shaft so I had to buy a 64mm one elsewhere. All in all a trying and frustrating build - just hope it flies better!

I bought this Pitts some weeks ago in the U.K. shop. Delivery takes just three days.
The overall quality is very good. But the building kit might be a challenge for beginners in building models. Especially because the manual has many detailed pictures, but the resolution isn't sufficient to see the details you need, when zooming in. If Hobbyking would provide a manual with higher resolution everything would be great.

Hobbyking says the spinner is 70mm but the manual calls for a 64mm spinner?What size are the main landing gear wheels?

Really carefully packed in big outer carton with plenty of protective bubble wrap. Actual product in heavy duty corrugated double-skin cardboard, carefully taped together. So far, components look in perfect condition. fuselage interior looks to have been put together with great care. Lovely cowling in separate box. I'm looking forward to putting this one together.
