Title: "2016 - Sweepstakes" Biplane Pitts S1
Post by: taitil on November 12, 2016, 04:34:56 PM
Hallo Friends.
Here is my second entry for this Sweepstakes. Making Pitts S1 from coro. Plan downloaded from rcgroup.com.
Wing = 700 mm
Fusage = 600 mm
Electronics doesn't decide. Depending on weight of model.

Taitil great going and good tech to mix coro & balsa.

If i see closely both upper and lower are cut same size which is y the upper coro is bit small or it was planned that way?
Any aileron in this plane?

Vinyl stickers

Post by: taitil on December 05, 2016, 05:28:08 PM
Thank u topalle rastsaurabh..
Sanjay sir, the ribs are made from 2mm balsa. And use 2mm coro. In first wing, i used double 2mm balsa in middle and in second wing, light weight 12mm aluminium rode. Total weight for two wings with two 9gm servos is 295gm. Not vinyl, I use regular 2 inch sticky  tape for colour. See closely.
Yes Saurabhbhai i cut same size coro. I put servos in lower wing for Aileron.

Thank you Very much Suyash, swapnil, Anant and Sanjay Sir...
Yes sir, when you first told me that this is Challenging build, i thought it would not. But i realise that this was really challenging build. And now i m very happy to made this. I made little mistaken in lower wing. I used very thin balsa stick. So wing gone little bend while flying. Now i give it stick for supports and make it strong.
