Some background of myself: I have been on and off flying RC for long time. Started with Cox .049 control lines at 12 years old and then quit after running out of money; reassumed this hobby and went all electric in 2011, flew lots of warbirds from GWS and FMS but got bored after one year. Moved into 3DHS and ExtremeFlight 3D planes in 2012, but after my kids started school at 2014, I just no longer had the time to haul my large balsa planes to a club an hour away and flew in between other warbirds. So all my planes just sat my basement collecting dusts. Fast forward to four months ago. My now 10 years old son found FT channel and asked me if he could fly my planes. Well, I don’t even want to fly these $600+ balsa planes anymore due to all the new regulations so I watched a few FT build videos and think I could reuse all of my leftovers to build some park size planes with my son, but most importantly, I could drag my kids away from video game. So I stared building some planes with my own designs and some modified FT planes. My son and I had a great time together, build, crash, repair and go over again. And then I saw the FT Edge 540 and the master Spitfire, I thought I could use their techniques and build a bird I like the most- Pitts special. I had a 31” balsa Piits S2 from Nitroplanes back in 2011, that plane never flew right but I just love it. It crashed many times beyond repairable and it was discontinued So I decided to use the parts of that plane and build a new one. I downloaded a drawing of Pitts S2 and used LiberCad to design my plan. It turned out Nitroplanes’ Pitts is 95% scale! Anyway, here are some pictures of my build. I maidened her today and she is a sweet flyer.
