Designed by the legendary Curtis Pitts, the Pitts Special has a proud history in aviation circles and is a favorite at an airshow. The prototype first flew in 1944 and although the aircraft has received refinements over time the current examples are still quite close to the original design. Pilots and aviation enthusiasts the world over have a soft spot for the Pitts Special, winning many aerobatic prizes and championships for its astonishing maneuverability and routines.
Kingcraft's almost ready to fly (ARF) version of the Pitts Special is the S-2B, a later and more powerful twin-seater variant and a very recognizable airplane. Kingcraft has captured the true spirit of the Pitts with super scale detail coupled with a straightforward build.
All the hard work has been done for you, the airframe is a combination of balsa and light plywood construction with a painted fiberglass cowl, wheel pants and spats. It also has plywood inter-plane struts, aluminum landing gear and fairings with scale-like working suspension. To bring this traditionally built ARF to the next level we have also included a set of rigging wires for the wings and empennage, a life-like pilot and ultra-scale dual cockpit with instrument panels which fully resemble that of the full-scale Pitts S-2B.
The manufacturing quality of the timber components is completed by hand with high attention to detail. Design and flight testing is completed in house at Kingcraft to make sure the RC pilot has the best flying experience with their aerobatic powerhouse.

The Pitts Special (company designations S1 and S2) is a series of light aerobatic biplanes designed by Curtis Pitts. It has accumulated many competition wins since its first flight in 1944. The Pitts biplanes dominated world aerobatic competition in the 1960s and 1970s and, even today, remain a potent competition aircraft in the lower categories.
