    I was advised to post my Video of my Pitts M12 Maiden flight on this thread so here it is.
    I won the ARF in December, and it has taken me this long to get it in the air. I have sight in one eye and it makes little nuts and bolts, and screws a royal Pain.:crazy:

    My good friend Patrick did the Maiden, he is a great pilot and I trust him with the Pitts. We had some CG issues, and My transmitter is a JR 9505 and I didn't get some things right on the three rates. But it is coming along.:thumbsup:

    Glad you got her up and down safely Bob !! Now just keep flying her and getting that CG worked out. I've never owned a bipe, but with all the options out now I'm actually thinking about it. Yours is a beauty !!

    I was able to hover at high idle, I was surprised. You hear people say that but can't believe it. I believe it now. It really flies nice. I'm glad I made the jump but I have to say it's a lot of money, work to assemble/setup, and trouble getting it to the field and setup. Much harder than my 50cc planes. But once I take off it all pays back right there. There's nothing like flying a 35% aerobat with a twin in it. Very cool indeed.

    Hey you fly pretty good for seeing in only one eye. Glad your maiden went well. :thumbsup: Wish I had a video of mine. I was too busy and not much time flying after work in the late afternoon.

    I have to get it on the scale, the book says between 18 and 19 lbs, I was hoping the DA would be able to pull it around. Should have all the bugs worked out in a week or so.

    Work has a way of getting in the way! I retired a year and a half ago, and love it. Highly recommend it to everyone.:biggrin: I had lots of help from my friend Patrick, he really knows his way around a radio, and programming.:thumbsup:

    Oh man that engine just sings. Gotta love it. Thanks for posting. Hearing alky engines roar is awesome. The only thing I'm missing is the smell and feeling that thunder on my chest. I gotta go to the drag strip this summer. :willynilly:
