WHEN LANDING USE FULL UP ELEVATOR AND DO NOT USE BRAKES!!!!
The Pitts S-1S is a series of light aerobatic biplanes designed by Curtis Pitts. It has accumulated many competition wins since its first flight in 1944. The Pitts biplanes dominated world aerobatic competition in the 1960s and 1970s and, even today, remain a potent competition aircraft in the lower categories. I hope you like this plane. It was quite a challenge to make and Im pretty pleased with the result
