RADIO CONTROL MODELS AND ELECTRONICS
VOLUME 63 ISSUE 6
ON THE COVER
The Pitts Special should need no introduction. The prototype first flew in 1944 and went on to become an aviation classic. If you’ve ever seen one, then you’ll know how tiny it is. FMS have emulated the two-seat S2 version but even that spans just 20ft, making this 1.4m span model a respectable 1/4-scale, give or take.
