CARF Pitts 12 Build Thread

Postby Billy Bunter on Fri Mar 15, 2019 4:10 pm

So, a first post to start this thread. I just received the first pictures taken at the CARF factory and thus decided to use these images as the trigger for starting this thread.

I'm totally over the moon with how the custom British Flag scheme has come out!!! :dance: :clap: :dance:

Build will include:

* Custom aerofoiled flying wires
* Moki 300
* Carbon 34x18 prop
* Mix of JR and Futaba A700 servos
* Powerbox Royal
* Smoke pump
* Lots of Secraft and other 'bling'

Apparently its shipping out from Thailand at the end of next week. Should have it here in late April/Early May....

A minor development. The aerofoiled flying wires I ordered to brace the wings turned up this morning. A quite lovely piece of handmade craftmanship!

Magic, that will be brilliant Stuart, I love the Pitts 12 . I'm still flying my old Beast and I love it. This will be a whole other level. Looking forward to watching the build develop. All the best with her!

Really nice guy to deal with and his workmanship is top notch!
