Pitts Challenger – 73″ (50-70cc)

Tony has just released a new plane!

Pilot-RC is very pleased to announce the release of the smaller but no less spectacular 73" version.

With all the same build quality and quick release systems used on the larger version, the new 73" is an ideal all-round sport acrobatic model, with a fast build time and speedy assembly and disassembly at the field.

After some hard negotiations, we are also very pleased to announce a new and authorized scheme available. The colors are those of UK top airshow pilot Rich Goodwin, which really pop and are very high vis in the sky. For anyone who doesn't yet know Rich Goodwin, make sure to check out his website: http://www.richgoodwinairshows.com

Almost got the 100cc one. This one will fit really nice in my suv. I agree in the videos it looks like a handful. I’ll wait for some reviews to come out.

Looks to fly heavy and has lots of coupling. At least to my eye.

Dude, check that engine out before something bad happens. I would not fly it much until you either get your ignition miss fixed or check the tune... do something.

Then take a new video with knife edge mixes programmed!
