We have decided to change the ordering procedure for this brand new
aircraft slightly since it is not yet available from stock. We will
sell "options" first through a down payment of 30%. The introductory
price for all the orders placed in 2004 is 3000EUR including 16% tax
but not including shipping.
You can order the plane
for this introductory price by paying the 30% down payment. Call me
to explain in more detail if necessary. A second quote with the
balance payment will be held by me and I will request the balance as
soon as your plane is completed and due to leave the factory.
We expect delivery to start in January 2005 with a production rate
of 8 planes per month.
Upon confirmation of
your order you will receive an exact and reliable delivery date.

Vacuum sandwich fuselage with carbon reinforcement in the
gear and cabane strut area. All formers are made from carbon laminated
balsa and plywood and are pre-installed and aligned. Sleeves for wing
and stab tubes are pre installed and aligned. Without the rudder the slightly

kg (5.5 lb). The canopy frame and bottom cowl half are factory
Vacuum sandwich wings using the same super light construction as our pattern planes. Due to the fact that the flying wires are fully
functional the weight saving attempts on the wings are very
effective. One wing panel is less than 900 gram (1 lb). Top wing span
is 2.7m (107), bottom wing is 2.6 m (102) total span and the wing
area is 3365 sq. in. The huge ailerons are elastic hinged
and allow throws of up to 35 deg. Each aileron is driven by 2
servos. Servo bays are installed and various mounts for different
servo sizes are supplied with the kit.
Scale flat, not airfoiled and increased in size by approx 8%.
Light weight composite sandwich construction with huge control
surfaces. The hinge axles are 4mm brass tubes, as used in other
giant scale Composite-ARF aerobatic planes. Control horns and
installed, servo mounts are in the fuselage - not in the stab.
Sleeves for 2 solid 16mm carbon tubes are pre installed and aligned.
A huge gear made from carbon tows and cloth was especially
designed for the Pitts. It is prepared for 6mm wheel axles and 5
wheels. Wheel pants are included in the set, too.
As the Composite-ARF Pitts Model 12 comes almost ready to fly,
the building time reduced to a minimum. Only servos and engine have
to be installed. This is easy to accomplish by following the
comprehensive instruction manual. This manual is based on the new
Composite-ARF instruction manual style and it includes large photo
pages. It can be downloaded from the web site, as soon as the first
kits are shipped.
