The Pitts Biplane

This scratch built Pitts Biplane is one of my favorite planes. A real snappy flier, this full flying upper wing plane is capable of almost anything. This one is powered by an OS Max 60 RE, that runs a tuned pipe inside the fuselage, with the exhaust routed through the bottom of the plane. I used a tuned pipe because of the substantial drag generated by the original design. You need to be on the power all the time as the glide ratio is somewhat lacking, a glider it isn't! I do love the way the plane snap rolls though, hang on! This one also uses a Midwest pilot, full instrument panel, and the markings were done in Monokote.
