As promised i though i would start the thread for the 40% pitts challenger 2.

I have already completed the design and laser cut all the parts ( one 40% has already left me to a customer who had built it in 3 weeks)

So this thread will be my build of the 40%.

There is a little... but where do you draw the line... weight save to the max and have minimal strength..to which more than likely, you will need to beef up areas... or go to a safe limit and suffer with 1/2 pound extra weight.

Personally im not overly critical on making planes stupidly light, especially on a biplane..

40% of what? It looks small to me for 150cc ! I know that the Pitts is a small plane but those bits look too small . Something of known size to put the pics into perspective would help . Good luck with build.

A bit bigger than the Fugly I bought at Cosford and test flew a couple of days ago Much as I love biplanes 44% is for me to admire from afar but I could be interested in a 20% or 25% (22%?) version. The big ones I saw at Cosford looked stunning.
